Styling Orange Jeans Challenge- Look # 3
Posted January 8, 2013on:
Since I began the week with such a bold color blocked look, I decided today to go in the complete opposite direction this time:
These neutrals definitely have a different feeling and I quite like it. I have often said that I could never do a thirty by thirty challenge, as I could never restrict my shoe selections and in this season, my boots. I wonder how many of my boots I will use in this challenge? I suspect by the end of winter most of them will come out to play with these jeans…
I think this look demonstrates where I like to save money by thrifting and where I prefer to splurge and spoil myself . The lace top in this look and the Aigner purse are both thrifted from Goodwill for a total of just $6.50. Those boots are ones I stalked for months and purchased last year on sale. Most girls that live in the south like to have at least one boot in this style and I haven’t had a pair in probably 15 years when I wore out my previous ones…
This sweater is by Dennis Basso via QVC and more than I usually spend on sweaters, but I really loved it and spoiled myself on it. Right now it is still clearanced HERE, but only available in smaller sizes, check out the other colors it comes in! I wear a size 6 have a 38 inch chest if that helps and ordered mine in XS. As I mentioned before most QVC designers run larger….
I also chose to pair my mother’s pearls with this lace top for a romantic vibe and my gold bracelet and earrings. The gold flower was also my mother’s and I just attached it to the pearl strand.
Dear Readers, a special note that I do not receive any compensation for my recommendations from anyone! Today’s look is so different from the boldness of yesterday’s cobalt top. I hope you come back tomorrow to see, yet another look with these fabulous colored jeans!
Well, the flu has hit my household so my gratitude is low today… I am grateful that I began this challenge and had a few post pre-written for today and tomorrow. I am also grateful that my photos are done through Friday….I am grateful that my daughter and son seem to have very mild case and might not even be the full flu…(My daughter heads back to college on Wednesday)
As Always, your comments are welcomed and greatly appreciated…
