Denim Dreams

Darlings, you know me for my love of skinny jeans. It seems that every morning I awake with the goal of donning something other than denim, but the luxurious feeling that such fibers instantly proffer to the wearer always lures me back in. As an adorer of all things fashion, of course, I have always maintained a rule…the jeans being worn must be sophisticated, classy, and playful all at once; whilst being comfortable enough for me to feel cozy through and through. Hence the reason why I jumped for joy when Marisa of Citizens of Humanity invited me to be a part of a “denim experiment,” and sent me a pair of Avedon Skinny Legging Jeans in the rustic Dust wash. Having never tried denim leggings myself, I truly had no idea what to expect; but I was thrilled to be a part of such a fun project. Unfortunately for me kitty cats, it was an absolute disaster – at least for my wallet; for within minutes of slipping them on I was head over heels in love with not only the aesthetic, but the resilience they provided, leading me to believe that I will be scooping up many more pairs in the very near future.







Fashionably yours!


Thanks to le sister Tiffany - my photographer - for the pictures.

Those look SO comfy!! I just wish that "jeggings" were more affordable!

Rachel said...

I always try to wear something other than denim, but often find myself opting to wear jeans anyway. How could anyone pass up a good jean? :)
Anyway, you look fabulous in your outfit! The legging jeans look great and I'm sure they're quite comfortable. Loving the boots as well!

Joanne said...

My daughter gave me denim leggings and equestrian boots for Christmas, they totally rock. I love that the look is so different from what denim's been the past few years, with the boot cut. It's a great change.

Emily said...

ah, denim leggings are wonderful! And they look great on you, especially paired with those boots.

la petite fashionista said...

Nikolett said...

Aww, I love that you're sharing photos of yourself now. You're gorgeous, girl! And I adore your bangs.

It's so crazy, they don't even look like leggings ... I can only imagine how comfortable they are. Definitely want to try them out :)

Hope you're having a great week so far!

Darling, I am in love with your rule: "the jeans being worn must be sophisticated, classy, and playful all at once; whilst being comfortable enough for me to feel cozy through and through." I think that is an amazing quote to always keep in mind when shopping for jeans!! I have actually seen some skinny legging jeans at a store here in Rome, what a unique and fun idea!!!

Also, your comment on my recent post left me with the biggest smile on my face...you really made my day! xoxoxoxo

These are cuter than I would have expected. I just can't get past memories of the 80s with the leggings and adding denim to the description sent shivers down my spine. But I retract that. They're cute on you!
