Casual Friday

Being that I LOVE my colored denim AND it's Friday, I figured I'd be wild and rock 'em at the office. Like I mentioned in a previous post about keeping clothes in separate categories, these jeans (of which I have 3 different colors and want more, but I'm trying to refrain) usually are reserved for home/weekends. Since I have many more weekday outfits to play with, I decided to continue practicing blurring the lines a bit. Wasn't sure what was going to happen when I grabbed these "true blue" jeans this morning. With flats, a jacket and some fun accessories, I think it works! It's fun how an item can take on so many identities. Weekend casual to office chic. Who'da thunk?!

On a side note, I'm very passionate about finding good deals for trendy items. While colored jeans are all the rage now, they might not be one season from now. So...I really believe that you can buy your trendier pieces that are bound to have a shorter life at the more budget friendly stores. While I LOVE my 7, Citizens, and Paige denim brands for the more traditional cuts/colors of denim, I was happy to find these at Old Navy for a VERY wallet friendly price. They fit really well and don't stretch out-which I find very common with cheaper denim. Even at ON's sister store, The Gap, the colored jeans are at least two to three times as expensive.When you know it doesn't have to last years and years, enjoy the cheaper versions (as long as they don't look cheap- and I think colored denim pretty much looks the same whether it's $30 or $130)!

Today's ensemble:
 Pants- Old Navy
T- Whole Foods (ha ha, crazy, I know! Some great eco-friendly,
organic brand!)
Shoes- Target
Earrings and necklace- Kohl's (Dana Buchman)
Watch- Timex weekender
