Fashion Trend: Colored Jeans

You've seen them.  And you tried to look away.  But they are everywhere you turn... at the store, at Starbucks, on a girl walking her dog.

Colored jeans are "it" this spring season.

They make quiet a statement, so if you are a bit unsure, start off with a blue pair (they stand out from regular jeans, but do not draw too much attention).  If you are ready to take this trend by the pant leg (hehe), go for a bold green or pink.

I actually was not sure if I would really wear a colored jean or just add it to the piles of jeans pleasantly resting in my closet.  Until I came across a Lauren Conrad pair at Kohl's, which were not only the perfect petite length, but were also on sale!  Granted they were petite length only because they are "ankle" jeans... so not sure how they will fit on normal-sized humans.  But they are "Malibu Doll" red and have a comfy skinny fit, which can be dressed down with flats for the weekend or dressed up with stilettos for a night out.  Either way, they are going to be red hot!

Summer Shades

This winter, Chicagoans have been spoiled rotten!  After being scared to death by meteorologists that predicted this "winter’s going to clobber Chicago," the lack of snow and freezing temperatures have been a pleasant surprise.  Should have known better than to trust a meteorologist.

And as we approach spring, nothing feels more right than purchasing a new pair of shades.  Right?!

For the past 8 months, I have been drooling over the Tom Ford's Whitney.... oooh aaaah [insert drool].  It's a classic (and always stylish) over-sized shape, but since the lenses are rounded off and wrap around the face, they don't look TOO big even on my little face.  The distinct elements of the Whitney's are the crisscrossed bridge, gradient tinted lenses and open sides.


I decided to go with a Dark Grey pair.  It give the same dramatic affect, but in a softer manner.


Let the sun shine!
