Movie Date

Good hump day to you darlings!!!  I hope y’all are having a great week so far!  Aside from feeling like I am getting sick, I am having a pretty good week :-).

On Sunday I went on an afternoon movie date with my niece and nephew(who decided he had to sit on a separate row, btw!) to see Red Tails, a movie based on the Tuskegee Airmen!  I wanted to wear an easy and comfy outfit, so I couldn’t wait to take my new colored jeans out for the first time.

I’ve been wanting colored skinny jeans for a while, particularly cobalt blue and pink (and green and orange an purple, lol), but every time I tried on a pair, I felt they looked horrible.  So, when I saw Reiko wearing these beauties, I had to try them on!  However, it took me several Target visits to a few location before I lucked up, and I’m glad I found a blue pair in time.  Now I want all of the other colors, but their sold out. 🙁

I love the idea of pairing bold colors with unexpected neutrals like burgundy and hunter green (the color I’m wearing these with next).

Jacket:  Smithsonian Institution- thrifted from St. Vinent de Paul; T-shirt and Jeans: Mossimo- Target (similar jeans); Shoes: Bamboo- Marshall’s

The kids got a bit silly in front of the camera, and are always asking to be in a blog post, so here they are, lol.

Are you into colored denim?  If so where do you buy yours from?  I’m certainly on the hunt for more!

  • I love your outfit and the accessories. 🙂 I have a pair of red pants – as in red, though I don’t know where my Aunt brought it, it was a gift for me last Christmas. Yey! Go cobalt blue!!! 🙂

  • I don’t usually shop at JC Penney but I got a catalog in the mail yesterday and saw some fab colored denim for $20. I would check back in February when they are supposed to be having some big sale. Check retailmenot.com for coupon codes too! I always use a code to get an extra discount.

    I have been trying to figure out if I want to join the colored jeans movement. =D I think I want to start out with a less bold color. Hmmmmm… I’ll have to try some on and see.

  • I love these jeans! I’ve been eyeing them at Target for a while too, but have yet to pull the trigger. Currently, I’m obsessed with finding mint colored jeans. Your niece and nephew are adorable as well!

  • I love these blue denim’s. I searched hi and lo for a pair and finally found some at Dot’s for a steal. However after the first wear they were completely stretched out of shape. UGH! I should have just coughed at the cash for a better pair. So I am on the hunt for another cobalt, pink, green and some pastels pair for the spring/summer. I love this and I am looking for those black wedges too!
