I heard a rumor the other day that printed denim is the new colored denim. The rumor was actually started by me because I bought these pants and I didn’t want my collection of colored jeans to feel jealous. Actually I don’t really think they are the new colored jeans, but I do think they are a distant cousin to them that’s just new in town and wants to be given a chance.

This post is going to weird places a lot quicker than I had anticipated. And sadly I have nothing else to save it. Printed denim for spring, that is all.

  1. Kendi, you are so funny. Your posts seriously make my day. Fabulous fashion and hilarious commentary: Bravo. 

  2. I concur. Printed denim is like the cousin of colored denim — not quite as versatile, but just as much fun. 🙂

  3. I love your pants! they are so cute. I got polka dot pants so that my colored pants wouldn't be lonely.

  4. Kendi, I've been reading your blog for a while now (I'm a high school student) and I wanted to say that this is one of my favorite outfits! I love your style and your funny posts – they make me smile 🙂 

  5. Printed denim is so fun! Love how you paired yours with mint!

    Blessings, dear!www.beautyandbows.com

  6. I've read your blog for awhile and this is my favorite outfit ever!

  7. Those are by far my favorite patterned jeans! I love how you paired everything… as always. 😉 And that mint sweater has me craving springtime!

  8. Love this outfit so much! Especially those pants. I'm loving printed denim. Also, your hair looks particularly good in this post!

  9. Hi MB! It's actually from a local boutique (Nan Lee, if you are local!) but you can find a similar one here: http://www.baublebar.com/medium-monogram.html

  10. OOOO Love these jeans. And I love the mint with the pattern. haha I have one tow many colored and print jeans…def. not enough regular blue jeans lol


  11. I literally laughed out loud at this post. "This post is going to weird places…" 

    I'm crushing on printed denim, but I have yet to buy any. This post has encouraged me to go get some asap. Thanks! I'll be sure to help spread the rumor.

  12. I'm on board with printed denim! I like the tribal prints, like your pants, more than the floral prints though. And they're harder to find! Love your gold earrings, especially with the color of your sweater. Gorgeous!

  13. I love this! I've seen it around but this is the only outfit that I would actually consider wearing myself. Adorable!

  14. Lol. Started thinking of the song by the song by Amy Winehouse when I read your title. Your writing is so quirky, I love it! Idk if I'll be trying printed denim, I still haven't found colored jeans I like. Love your fearless fashion sense Kendi!


  15. Not sure the super curvy girl can wing this without getting stones thrown at her, BUT they are cute and given the right top it could all work out fine. Distant cousin, you are welcome here.

  16. Love the look – I picked up this exact sweater from h&m today! Great way to style it. I enjoy a printed pant – especially in similar and not too obnoxious hues.


  17. Oh, Kendi. I believe you. This printed denim stuff both excites me and worries me, because I currently have every color of denim imaginable (except pastel orange and mint), but I only have 1 pair of graphic pants. Ikat pants. I've been searching for polka dot pants, but haven't found a pair I like yet. So thanks for warning me about this new trend. I'll keep an eye out next time I go shopping. Investing in printed denim might be wiser than colored denim now.

  18. I love the printed denim. I've been going back and forth on whether to buy some beauties from Urban Outfitters- I'm just not sure I can justify buying them when I work in a business-casual world….
    Cute blog!


  19. I love the printed pants!!! This is a fantastic outfit! (:


  20. Lovely looks that you present here. But what I love most about it is the weather, that you have over there. Here its freezing and snowing, so we have to wear really thick coats and pullovers

  21. You look phenomenal! I am in love with your sweater and those pants make your legs look a mile long!


  22. Love your posts Kendi. They always make me laugh and put a smile on my face. Love your outfit today. I bought a pair of printed black lace pants for the holidays and I love them.



  23. The pants r amazing, and the sweater complements them perfectly! Your blog has been such an inspiration to me, as a young blogger i would love for you to share your thoughts and tips for my new blog 🙂

  24. Those pants are amazing. In fact, as I scrolled down the page, I said "those are sweet pants" aloud to no one.

  25. Great mint and gray combination. Chic as always!


  26. You really are loving mint lately! Looks good on you! The sweater almost looks studded in the first pic from far away. Vey cute. so springy yet im dealing with below freezing temps in Chicago!:(

  27. Def, printed denim is more fun than colored denim. But both are in the same family, whereas regular ol' blue denim is left in the dust. Those are some pretty daring pants, though! Super cute!

  28. I'm not a fan of printed denim, but I love the pants you're wearing. The soft colors of the print make them look more subtle.

  29. This is such a lovely outfit.  I'm obsessed with the colour combo and the pattern of the pants.  xo
