Last week I got a little too busy and missed one of my fave weekly link-ups: Drab to Fab hosted by the lovely Amy @ Sugar and Spice. This week I'm back, with something I have been obsessing over ever since I came across Kendi Everyday's inspiring style blog: colored jeans. I am no fashionista. I have hitherto been strictly a dark-wash person, occasionally venturing into the slightly bolder territory of white pants. But I do love to style-watch, and slowly but surely I'm pulling myself out of my comfort zone and playing with more colorful trends. What I love about colored jeans is that-IMO-it is just about impossible to take yourself too seriously (or make a grumpy face) while wearing them. They're fun! So far I've picked up a rusty-red pair (Forever 21), and a pair of candy-colored turquoise (Macy's) so bright I just want to eat em up!! As in prior Drab to Fab posts, I'm mixing them up with items already lodged in my over-crowded closet.

Even Ella's a little concerned. But I still contend that Social D is
like, the best band ever ;-)

Daddy! You don't see colors like that every day!"
Hmmm...was that a compliment??
What do you think of this trend? Love it or leave it??
