Sunny with a Chance of Jeans

6.25.12d{Jeans: Similar from Target | Wedges: Similar | Bag: c/o Brahmin}
I tend to ask myself “self, what do you want to wear today?” in the mornings and usually the answer is something with colored jeans. This is when I tell myself ‘no, you need to look a bit more professional’, so I choose something else a bit more constricting and not quite what I wanted to wear. But my heart — my heart is sitting in my closet with my colored jeans on the shelf. So today I gave in and I’m wearing my sunny yellow jeans on a Monday. 
But for professional sake, I am calling them pants.

  1. Love the jeans!  I don’t own a single pair of colored jeans and seriously need to change that.  Like, yesterday.

  39. I bought those jeans from target and couldn’t get them  past my calf….. Jealous you have long skinny legs.  I have short stumpy legs thanks to genetics and being a figure skater my whole childhood.  So screw you (in a nice, I wish I could have your legs, sort of way of course).

    PS, love that top.

    These skinny “pants” are the perfect shade of yellow. It’s pleasant and not offensive. I really like them. I find that this summer I am wearing a lot of coloured “pants” aka denim to work and getting away with it.

    This is the story of a girl who has skulked around your blog for almost a year, shamelessly ripping off your fabulous outfits – note: rather less elegant/cute/stylish versions of them – and parading them around as her own, but never daring to cross the line into something really adventurous. Well today, in her tiny little town, she wore magenta jeans from the 70% off rack at Target to work. And, while they were significantly tighter and longer on her than they appear to be on you, she received many happy comments, and just as many hairy eyeballs. The day was a success. Just thought you should know, I owe it all to you and your love of colored jeans.
