For the Love of Colored Denim

I love colored denim! I feel like the pairs I have in my closet have been a little neglected, but that’s probably because the winter pounds I packed on have meant that few pairs currently fit me. :) I picked up this pair from Limited for $10 at Discount Fashion Warehouse (can you tell that’s become my new favorite store?!) over the weekend. I had a baby shower to go to for the wife of one of my husbands’ college friends. Not knowing most of the people there, I figured that most would be wearing jeans, but didn’t want to take the very small risk of being the only person in denim there. Trust me, I realize I worry about some trivial things…my husband would just roll his eyes if he knew how much thought I put into getting on Sunday! These pants ended up being the perfect compromise. The darker color stops them from seeming attention seeking, and they're still casual enough to avoid feeling out of place when most over people wore jeans, just as I expected. Only outfit fail? Wearing heels and forgetting that even in flats I tower over the momma to be. I felt like a giant!

  1. I love those Pants and what a great deal. I own some Cords in that color. Great Cardigan too. I might have to copy this look. Hmmm, how tall are you - you got me curious? =D

    1. Thanks Ada! And I'm about 5'9" - I love my height and most times feel really comfortable with it, but that day I just really felt like a giant...haha!

  6. I LOVE this outfit, Jess! I have one pair of olive skinny jeans and a pair of teal skinny jeans that are a smidge too tight for me right now, but I loooove the look of colored denim and wish I had more! I really love how maroon/gray/black look together. I'll have to try to recreate this outfit when it's warm enough for me to wear my maroon ankle pants again!! :)

    1. Thank you Brynn!! I wish they had them in olive too, I would've snatched them right up. They did have a darker green though that I might be going back for. :)
