A Day of Colored Denim

Jeans: Gap, Jacket: Calvin Klein, T-shirt: Nordstrom, Booties: KORS Michael Kors, Necklace: Anthropologie, Bracelets: Lucky,
Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: Armani Exchange
These pants are seriously blinding in these photos. The more I look at them, the more it looks like someone colored my legs with a neon highlighter. I swear they're not this bright in real life. Something about the sun and where I was standing apparently dialed up the color from "acceptably bright" to "eyeball-searing." Usually when I wear these pants to my office I feel slightly self-conscious since I'm pretty sure pink pants qualify as slightly ridiculous in the workplace — not that that would ever stop me from wearing them. But luckily a coworker/friend of mine also showed up wearing super-bright colored denim yesterday. (Those are her legs, all she would let me photograph, in the cobalt blue.) It was even more impressive considering our coordinated pants-travaganza was not at all planned. Coincidences are great to begin with, but when they involved neon pants? Instantly a million times better. 

I thought I had fulfilled my desire for colored denim awhile ago. Little did I know it was going to rear its ugly head again as soon as someone else showed up in a color I don't own. Now I'm resisting the urge to go buy this pair from Gap or this pair from J.Crew in every color (but especially the green). Would that be so wrong? What do you guys think? How much colored denim qualifies as TOO much? And what's your favorite color?
