Banana pants in monochrome

I’ve called these jeans my “banana pants” after a comment left by Alisha on my pastels post for EBEW… she has some similar ones and that’s what she calls them – I’ve adopted the name for myself 😉

I guess this would be another pastels outfit were it not for the punches of black and neon. If I could, I’d put neon trim or neon details on everything at the moment! I had some neon laces bought via eBay last year and threaded them onto some old grey sneakers; I love how much more vibrant they make them and how they complement the neon trim of my blazer. What I’ve done is basically taken half of this outfit and half of this outfit and mixed the two together… must remember that next time I’m trying to find outfit inspiration.

Hope everyone has a lovely week!

    Very fun combination of pastels, black/white, and neon. Those shoe laces are very exciting 🙂

    I agree with Mater, your monochrome is colorful and eye-catching, well done!

    Hilarious title, really — if that's as close as you get to monochrome, you will clearly never be bored (or boring!) 😉
