Thank you so much, everyone, for all the encouraging comments from last post! I will admit that right now I am totally uncertain and a little scared about what's going to happen next, but I'm also really excited about many possibilities. Onward to another adventure, I say!

But on to more profound topics. I know that red denim is sooooo 2011, but did you really expect me to be on top of that? Yes, I'm one of those people. The ones who know and watch the trends come and go and then months and years later, when everyone is wearing turquoise skinnies and peep-toe booties, finally decides that the red skinnies party needs more people in its camp.

So there. I finally got a pair.

  3. Psh, they're not over yet at all. I just bought mustard, royal blue and dark teal skinnies. I think red was another available option. That means they're not over.

  8. I think your red jeans are darling. I'm absolutely someone who doesn't give up on a trend even though everyone else says it was last season. It all depends on what looks good on me and what I feel good in.

  22. Haha, I'm right there with you. I've finally decided that, yes, I would like to own either a pair of red jeans or red trousers, but finding the right fit and ultimately length has proved difficult. I don't know, sometimes I try not to be too trendy, but obviously there are going to be certain things that I like right away. I've often found fashion to be too overwhelming and intimidating to follow from season to season.

  23. Ack! I forgot to say how awesome this outfit is! I want you to know that you've been giving me a lot of inspiration lately :)

  24. I still love red denim! Tried some on at Old Navy this week, but totally did not fit. I'm a major fan of the stripes and bow in this outfit, too!

  25. I'm behind in readings, so I had to go back to find your announcement, but I have to say: good for you!!! Nothing is worse than a thankless job. And it's so sweet of your husband to completely back you quitting!!! Love the red pants and that bow!!

  26. Laura, honey, no matter what the year, red jeans never looked so good! Forget the fashion rules. Make your own as you go along because you are Fabulous with a capital F! Love the bow belt! :)

  27. I love the red skinnies on you - and good luck with the job hunt!

  28. That's so funny, I feel like I'm the same way! I always love being the odd one out in what I wear, it's a little adventure in fashion!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha! I think I missed the red skinny thing the first time 'round so I'm so glad you are resurrecting the trend, Laura! And it's not even a trend -- I say it's classic. Especially black and red.

    A bit slow on the uptake, but re: your previous blog post, huge congrats to you for quitting! I whole-heartedly agree that life is too short and spending time doing something that is nimbling/chomping at your soul is a no-go. If I weren't between jobs myself at the moment (stupid, ephemeral moola), I would totally buy up everything in your shop!

  32. i don't think red denim will ever be out of style. at least i hope not. especially when it's paired with stripes and the cutest bow belt!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. You look adorable. I'm so happy you got to leave that job. You seemed so frustrated there. I say "poop on the trends". Wear what you like when you like it. I think that's the surest way to ensure looking your best. ;)

  34. Lovely outfit, that actually inspires me to wear some stripes with my red jeans - honestly, I forgot how cool it looks! And that belt is too cute! If you ask me, red denim NEVER goes out of fashion. I don't care what the experts think ;)

    I just checked out your Etsy shop, gosh there are too cute things ;) I may persuade my mom to order me a thing or two this weekend ;) Lots of love! ♥ xoxo

  38. This is one of my absolute favorites of yours! The black and white and red looks so French, especially with those darling stripes! I adore those red skinny jeans too. And your glasses are RIDICULOUSLY cute. You're gorgeous.

    May the force be with you.
