But they totally should be.
They are just. that. awesome.
If you know me, you know that I am a lover of the colored jean AND the skinny jean.
So, give me a COLORED SKINNY jean, and I am ALL IN.
I have several pairs.
Turquoise, royal blue, pale pink, and now mustard.
Some people (the hubby, ahem) may think this is overboard. I think it’s a nice start.
Mama really wants a pair of red ones too. And maybe green. And hot pink.
And wouldn’t eggplant be nice?
Is it weird that I can hardly remember a time when the world only had denim jeans?
It must have been a dark, dark time.
So…I now introduce to you….
my mustard skinny jeans.
You might as well get to know them because you will be seeing lots of each other.
I didn’t have any cobalt blue accessories, so I subbed a bright orange. It was a good sub.
I like to call this outfit: “FALL IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER”
This outfit is a nice way to ease into fall: long pants and fall colors, but a sleeveless shirt so I don’t pass out from a heat stroke.
Orange Statement Necklace: Sam Moon
(I bought it a couple of weeks ago after Pinterest told me to. And Chris…is was $9.99!!!)
Black and White top: The LOFT
Belt: The LOFT
Mustard Skinny Jeans: Nordstrom
Don’t worry peeps, fall really is just around the corner.
You know how I know?
Because when I ordered the Coconut Mocha Frappacino last week at Starbucks, they told me that the Coconut Mocha button had been taken off the register and that the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappacino button would be put on September 4th.
So, I don’t care what Sam Champion or the Farmer’s Almanac says.
In my world, September 4th shall be the first day of fall.
That is tomorrow, so mark it down.
(FYI: In my friends Shay’s and Andrea’s worlds, it has been fall since late July. Shay has been burning pumpkin spice candles, Shay’s kids have been wearing footie pajamas for naps, and Andrea and her kids have been wearing sweaters and fleece in her house for at least 6 weeks now.)
Personally, I think they may have jumped the gun a bit, but for the rest of us…..
it is just around the corner people.
Sure, it might still be 104 degrees outside. But in my heart and in my closet, it will be fall.
p.s. My girlfriends and I are headed to Starbucks tonight for a scarf exchange!
Now, if that doesn’t say fall, I don’t know what does.
