If you’ve read me for any length of time you know that jeans are a major staple in my wardrobe. I wear them in every color, wash, and shape, on everything but the steamiest days during the summer. And even then, if I’m planning to stay in the AC, I’ll toss on a pair of jeans.
The shape of jeans changes pretty often and while I do have my favorite, I like to experiment with new styles to keep my look current. I’ve avoided cropped pants and jeans for years because I’m only 5’4″, but this season I gave them a try.
I found these jeans while shopping with my daughter. I love how they looked on her but they looked dumb on me because the length was neither cropped nor full length. I ordered the petite version and it’s just what I needed.
I’m wearing them with this super-soft Tencel shirt which is on major sale. I tucked it in to give my legs the longest line possible. Rather than a belt, I decided to fold an extra-large scarf on the diagonal and thread it through the belt loops.
I love the elegant look of scarves but they’re usually too hot to wear around my neck this time of year. Tying small ones around the handle of my handbag or a large one around my waist means I can still enjoy them and stay cool. In hindsight, I would probably tie the scarf one belt loop over so it hung down the side of my leg.
I’m wearing a favorite pair of earrings by Dean Davidson. I’ve been wearing his designs for the last few weeks and I’m totally smitten. Their clean organic shapes and brushed metal finishes are perfect to dress up or wear with a simple pair of jeans.
Stay tuned for an exciting post on Dean Davidson’s designs, a very generous discount code, and a giveaway for both my Canadian and American readers!
I’m joined today by some other uber-chic blogger friends so please pop over and see how they style their jeans.
