I look very forward to our Florida ”winter months” because I get to wear denim and sweaters! The rest of the year it really is impossible to wear anything other than dresses and skirts. It is way too hot. Especially since I spend most of my day outside with my one and two year old at the park. And they are awake and ready to play during the HOTTEST hours! Okay – back on track! So just before our first cold front arrived last December, I did some prep – ordered some great new skinny jeans that would keep my legs warm and stylish! There are just so many these days to pick from, it was actually hard to decide on which to buy! Do I get animal print or zebra print? How many pastel colored skinnies do I really need??? (Think light yellow, mint green, pink, mauve…) and can’t forget leather! Can I rock a metallic pair at the park??? Well these are the ones I finally decided I need to have. Please note that most of these jeans have been rolled around in parks and sandboxes many times already and have endured many washes. So although they don’t look as great hanging on the hanger anymore, the colors are still very much new and overall still look great on! All mommies need this at the end of the day right? Easy wash and wear clothes that we can get down and dirty in. I didn’t realize how many skinnies I actually had until I layed them out for this blog! Note to my husband: Dont read this blog! Or if you do, I bought all these before I even knew you! The good thing is that each outfit you will see below cost me $25 – $40! For both pieces! Now that’s a bargain!
I love pairing my grey skinny jeans with pastel colored tops. My fave pastel color right now is this light pink. Note the white lace detail around the shoulders. I usually look for tops that have some sort of nice detail on them so I can skip out on accessories since they aren’t that functional anyways for the park! I never skip out on an earring stud though! I have a few that I wear everyday that I feel pulls the outfit together. With this outfit I would wear my pearl studs and my nude flats.
My light denim shredded skinnies! Or as my mother in law likes to call them – my jeans I got half off since half are missing! I love these so much! I like to keep this look simple since the jeans make such a strong statement. I wear with a white tee, white belt, white keds and a silver studs.
These are my most recent addition. I have been on a hunt to find the perfect pair of floral skinny jeans for a while now. I didn’t want anything too dark colored or too literal. This print is very subdued and the colors are very soft. It is almost like a brocade print more than a floral which I love even more. Obsessed with brocade! The mint top has some funky studded details on the left shoulder. I like to wear this with my gold studs and gold flats. These skinnies also look great with the pink laced top as pictured above.
My white skinny jeans. I used to love wearing these with a orangey yellow floral top, but these days I like to rock them with this nude sequined top. I was concerned the sequins would not work when I am holding my toddlers in my arms, but there is no snagging fortunately. And easy to wash. I like to wear this outfit with my diamond studs (cubics really) and nude flats.
These olive-green skinnies look dwarfed in this picture! I love them on though. I love the leather detail along the waistline and pockets. I like to wear these with a brown/black animal print top, gold studs and gold flats. Or with just the white tee as pictured above paired with animal print flats. I love the combo of animal print and cargo green.
These are my red skinny jeans. They are actually corduroy so I shouldnt really call them “jeans”. I like to wear these with my black and white striped nautical top, black flats and diamond studs.
I really wanted to participate in the cobalt blue trend but was unsure which piece I should invest in. Blue shoes, pants or top. I ended up going with pants since I would get more wear out of them and make more outfits. I like to wear these with my black and white safari top, white belt, black flats and my silver studded earrings. These pants also look very cool with the black and white striped top and red flats. Very nautical!
These are my classic dark blue denim skinny jeans. I like to wear these with a boho fringe top, brown moccasin flats and gold studded earrings. These jeans also look great with the brown and black animal print top as pictured with the olive-green skinnies, gold flats and gold studs.
I adore these!!! As you can see I do love my animal prints! I like to keep this look simple, just a black loose fitting top (note the mesh details on the bottom which is actually the back side) for some extra interest. I like to wear this with my silver studs and black flats. This also looks great with a plain white tee, gold flats and gold studs.
Light on light! Light pink skinny jeans with an off white tunic. This is so nice to wear actually. Love wearing this with my nude flats and diamond studs. I feel very pretty and soft in this outfit.
And finally we are on the last outfit!! My super skinny black skinnies paired with a semi sheer polka dot top. This blouse is so pretty! The sleeves are a bit puffed and the length is perfect. I love to wear this outfit with my pearl studs and my red flats. Of course the black pants will go with so many other tops. The white tee and animal print flats, either animal print top as pictured above, the nautical top with red flats.. just to name a few!!! The posibilities of looking like a pulled together mommy are endless and does not have to break the bank!
Stay tuned for a spring dress story!!
