Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a terrific weekend! We visited our oldest son, Nolan, for Fall Family Weekend at the University of Florida. On Friday we took Nolan and his roommate to dinner and shopping. I swear I love that boy, he has his daddy’s brains but loves to shop like his momma! Saturday started out great with a fabulous breakfast and a stroll around campus. Then we attended the tailgating bbq and game viewing hosted by the university. The weather was wonderful and they had large tents set up with comfy seating and large screen televisions so we could cheer on the Gators. The marching band and cheerleaders performed for us during half time and all in all it was a first rate event. However, about halfway through I started feeling sick to my stomach. We stayed through the 3rd quarter and then left. I ended up with food poisoning so needless to say my fun was cut short. My husband took me back to the hotel room where I stayed the rest of the night. I was heartbroken but glad that my husband and son could still hang out. My younger son traveled to Gainesville on Saturday for a robotics competition with his high school team so my husband and son were able to spend some time with him and his team. I hated to miss out!
On Sunday when I woke I was feeling better but exhausted. We drove home and I spent the day on the recliner, what a bummer! I am grateful I had at least close to 24 hours with my boy. Luckily before we left I put together a few outfits for this post. I had planned on showing 4 ways to style these gray jeans but I just couldn’t muster the energy so 2 it is.
I ordered these gray jeans by Caslon from Nordstrom. They are lightweight and have plenty of stretch. The link I provided is for the plus size version, I am not sure if regular and petite are still available. They have been in my closet for awhile patiently waiting for cooler weather!
First up is a little dressier way to style these jeans. You may notice I am wearing the dark teal sweater from this post. I decided to cuff the jeans because for some reason I just think it looks better. I am also wearing one of my chokers from this post and my leopard heels find them here. After a few pictures I swapped out my choker for a beaded, tassel necklace. I actually like it better. The necklace is old and I believe it is from Target. This is an outfit I would wear out to dinner or church. I couldn’t wear the heels to work because although they are comfortable I don’t think my feet would be very happy by the end of the day. I’d swap them out for booties or even my over the knee boots last seen here.
I really like the casual outfit. It is comfy and fun. A few things to note here – I am wearing a graphic tee and bit of bling. This is my favorite combination! I am reluctant to wear some graphic tees but this one I purchased last year from Old Navy and I like it. Let me say I have nothing against a graphic tee but I feel silly in some, maybe it’s my age? The plaid shirt is lightweight and from Target. I am wearing my converse sneakers and of course my sparkly necklace to jazz things up a bit. Jewelry is one of the easiest ways to go from frumpy to fab in no time so my advice is to buy yourself a piece or two.
I hope this post inspires you to try something new with colored denim! Colored denim two ways, that’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today!
