Guest Blogger: Shabby,Chic, and Cheap Does Denim

Since I am out sick this week, Marissa from Shabby, Chic, and Cheap was gracious enough to help me out with an awesome post on wearing colored denim. We do share an affinity for these super popular pants!


This is one trend that is going to be hard to avoid! They're EVERYWHERE! So go ahead and give in to the peer pressure and buy a pair, or two...or if you're me 4 {with one on the way!}
As awesome as this trend is I've spoken with quite a few women who are hesitant to try them out because they aren't sure how to wear/style them. Here are a few examples of how I style mine with a few rules! 
1. Don't be afraid to pair your colored denim with fun pops of color elsewhere, I opted to add some mustard wedges with my magenta jeans. I kept my top half fairly neutral with a sheer grey leopard print top. 
2. Don't be afraid to do 2 trends at once, here I did a zebra print top with my bright red jeans, I also did a big bracelet. 
3. Don't be afraid to dress them up for work, I added a blazer, sequin clutch, and some snakeskin pumps with my pink jeans. This could work for a date night too!
4. Layers are always a good choice! I paired my rust colored jeans with some oxfords and added  feminine touches with the lace on my shirt. Perfect for running errands around town. 
PS: Most of my colored denim came from Old Navy and one pair from Target. Can they just sponsor me already?!!

Your rules are spot on! I only wear colored pants for the past 8 months! I just cant wear regular blue denim when there are fun colors out there! I have 6 pairs and want 3 more colors!

I loved Marissa's guest post and agree with you so much! Why wear plain old blue jeans when you can wear red jeans. Or Pink jeans. Or mint jeans! So many choices!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Awesome outfit choice! I need more blazers!

Marissa and I live for Old Navy. We long for the day when they recognize our devotion to them and love us back!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I am so jealous right now!

Thank you! Marissa is so awesome! I love wearing my polka skirt with bright red, but I've seen lovely pairing with solid yellow and pink as well! Let us know what you decide!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I love (and I know Mariisa loves hers) my bright red pants. They really can be dressed up or down in so many ways!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Girl, me too!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I bought the coral red crop pant and you're right! You can't not smile in them!

You definitely know how to rock a pair of colored jeans! I will definitely have to wear some of these combos!

I love dresses too, but when working with first graders they aren't always the easiest thing to wear. I am on the floor a lot or bending over a lot and am afraid of showing off a little too much. lol
