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!

  25. 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!

  41. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  42. 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.
