Colored Bottoms and Printed Tops.

It is hot and even humid many times here during the day, but usually after 6.00 PM it cools off. So I often change twice during a day or sometimes I take a day outfit make some changes and turn it into an evening outfit. Note: by an evening outfit I don't mean dressy - I mean appropriate for the cooler evening weather. Both of these casual outfits today are what I have worn some evenings here as a casual SAHM. They both feature Colored Pants and Printed Tops and I'd consider them both color-blocked as well.
First up is this pair of Cobalt Corduroy Skinnies (last worn here. also with a bit of red). I paired them with a Red Camisole and a Leopard Cardigan that has some Turquoise among the Brown/Beige/Black Print which matches the Pants even better. I had worn Leopard with Cobalt before and Leopard with Red before (2 combinations I adore) but this time decided to combine all 3 and I liked the look. For accessories I added a Brown Belt (to bring out the Brown of the Cardi), Beige/Gold Leopard Flats and Mixed in some Dark Red Jewels by WHBM, topped off with Burgundy Red Lipstick. Do you like the end results? Have you ever worn Cobalt, Leopard and Red together? Try it - it's cute. =)

This Outfit was worn on the Evening the same day as the last outfit shown on the blog featuring this same Chambray with my Floral Midi Skirt. Besides the Chambray, I even wore the same Earrings and Bow Ballet Flats. I got another matching Bow via the Headband while the Colors of the Earrings match all of the Colors of the Outfit.
