Drab to Fab: In Living Color

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.

Feeling sassy...lol

Ok...so teenage rebel may not be my best look. See?
Even Ella's a little concerned. But I still contend that Social D is
like, the best band ever ;-)

This outfit prompted a little boy at the mall to remark, "Wow,
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??


  1. I love colored jeans and both colors look great on you! I want to pick up a pair myself soon! :)

    1. Thank you Nnenna! You should totally go for it, it's so much fun :-)

  2. Just found your blog through the do something good link up and am finally getting around to commenting! LOVE the comment the little boy left. A few days ago I was wearing a striped yellow and white skirt and a bright turquoise shirt and my sixteen year old student said to me "You look like a target commerical." Umm... okay? But I just took it as a compliment and ran with it. Can't put too much stock in what the young ones say!

    YOUR outfit is adorable!

    new follower :)

    1. Thank you Bonnie! IMO, Target rocks so that was definitely a compliment. Thanks for following--can't wait to check out your blog :-)

  3. Hey, great bloggy re-design, first off!

    Secondly, love the two colored jeans. They are fun without being obnoxious!! I REALLY need to get a pair of colored pants. Jesse isn't into them at all. He will laugh at me if I bring a pair home.

    But, after seeing this post and being inspired - I just may do it and endure the 3 seconds of ridicule (lol) :)

    Below is the link for today's party!


    Have a lovely weekend :)
