Oh this look was from one of those lovely warm days we had not too long ago!  Supposedly more warm days are coming soon, but I am dubious.  Much like light, flowy dresses, wide and soft pants are one of my favorite things to wear on warm Spring days.  One of the best things about these pants, besides the flannel-like denim, is the saturated blue color.  It's not in-your-face bright, but a little different than your average jean color.  And yeah, still lovin' the Miu Miu's :-)  Since it was so nice outside, my friend A and I sat on the tailgate of my car (I pay for my parking spot so that's kind of like a patio, right?) and had ourselves a little impromptu wine and cheese party.

H&M shades (couldn't get just one pair :-)
Target button-down
vintage necklace
Urban Outfitters belt
Jenny Jen jeans
Bally bag
Miu Miu heels
Hermes bangle


PS Major thanks to Quintessentially Quirky for the shout out in her highlighted blogger looks post!

Love this outfit. I actually might steal this look tomorrow. I have almost the same shade pants but in cords. Funny you wear this in warm days and since it is suppose to get cooler here tomorrow I was looking for a warmer outfit and this would be a cool day outfit here in SD.

Fab jeans E! They look wonderful with the browns and yet again that bangle of yours works! :D

Miss Madeline said...

I think you have to be a certain height to wear that style of jeans, they look lovely on you but would make me look short!

I love the jeans. Definitely very 1970's! you look so cool in them.

Anna G said...

Sigh, those jeans are beautiful. I love the color and cut of those. I'm so not a pants person, but I would love to own a pair like those.

Lemondrop Marie said...

The jeans are made for you! Love that bag and shoes too. Fabulosity.

stylefyles said...

oo these are fantastic! the fit of those jeans is perfect, and I love how you've complemented the look with the roped belt (clever, too, to tuck the excess into itself). Great accessories and color!

Daphne said...

So, yes- those jeans are SO great on you. Perfect cut. And you're doing two things I LOVE in these photos: 1. the way your necklace is tucked under your collar (I do it all the time) and 2. The twisted under belt. This is also something I do daily. LOVE both details.

Melissa~ said...

The prefect pair of jeans!

Stunning how the belt and bag are exactly the same shade of brown. I love precise matching like this. :) Very neat look, and it's the heels that make it edgy.
