Connecting the Dots

This could also be called Trend Alert!! But all that really means  is Trend "This trend has been around for a while but I'm just now getting brave enough to try it" Alert!

My cobalt skinnies? Yeah, colored jeans had been on the radar for what, maybe a year..more?..before I jumped on that rainbow band wagon (And I am SO happy I did)

So now I'm dabbling in patterned denim. I was originally looking for a more "classic" subtle dotted jean..but all the one I saw were low rise. And low rise just isn't for me anymore. Mid to High rise are all I'm going for these days. So when Gap had a crazy sale I daringly ordered them.

Opinion? When I first opened them up I swear I was going to have a panic many "bold" dots! Then...when I put them on....magic happened...and...I...loved...them! I actually found myself saying that they felt "sophisticated". Am I nuts folks? 

The fit is perfect and the dots aren't as "in your face crazy" as I first imagined them to be. The only thing I am still getting used to is the "skimmer" length. Or "High-water" as this length was called back in my day ha!

I just purposefully shelled out money for High-Water Jeans....

But I'm getting used to it..and feel very Audrey Hepburn-ish, and that's ALWAYS a good thing :)

So, tired of my ramblings yet? Let's get to the goods!

I'm also planning out outfits for my "weekend getaway" easy breezy stylish outfit for the airport and some mix and match outfits for the weekend. Here's what I was thinking for the flight. Thoughts?

Hubster: Why is your shirt half-tucked in with no belt?

Me: You think I need a belt?

Here you go!
Hubster:'s leopard..with dots?? I don't get it..
Me: It's a thing, "mixing prints, ya know"
H: Well alot of things were "the thing" in the 80's too...
Me: Hush..
But seriously, folks, I am kind of on the fence with mixing prints. My only attempts thus far have been pretty subtle. Does this work? Be honest now...don't send this gal through the airport lookin' all crazy!

And for when it gets a bit chilly (Because my Southern Blood can't handle anything colder that 75) A little Fleece Moto Jacket..though I'm not sure it works with the shoes...sigh..

Then again...maybe..
And these jeans aren't just good for standing around..they held up perfectly in lounging around with my Little Miss.

And For Curious Minds Who May Want to Know:
Shirt: Pea in the Pod Maternity (still wear 'em, still love 'em!)
Jeans: 1969 Gap Skimmers
Belt: J.Crew (Thank you Christmas Elves!)
Shoes: The "Ellen" Vince Camuto (My fav flats...ever..)
Moto Jacket: Modcloth

I'm also thinking pairing the jeans with my Trusty Chambray and Ankle Booties for the flight..we'll see

I'd love your thoughts! How would you style these jeans?

Until next time, Lots of Love!!

  1. Haha! You crack me up "I just purposefully shelled out money for High-Water Jeans...." I've had the same issue, especially since I'm so tall. I'm lucky it's "in" or my wardrobe would be a lot more limited! And I love the leopard print with the dots. I still haven't mixed prints. I always feel like I'm not doing it right or something and I just look crazy. You look awesome though, good choice! :)

    1. Thank you so much! I haven't had the chance to try to "dress them up" yet..but I think it'll be a fun experiment :)
