Random Fashion-y Things

Hello friends. Today's post will be somewhat of a random, all-things-fashion post. Chalk it up to the random fashion-y thoughts floating  through my mind. First, I've got somewhat of a point to prove.

Let's talk about jeans and heels. While conversing with M, I made the comment about wearing heels with jeans and was met with laughter. Apparently, he didn't know that jeans and heels were a "thing". Really? So, of course, I set to prove that they, indeed, are a "thing"...

I'm a fan of jeans with heels. There are a few points to consider when wearing this look though:
a) Fit of the jeans. In general, I like a more fitted, skinny or bootleg style jean with heels. However, I also think the look can be cute with boyfriend jeans, cropped jeans and trouser jeans. It's more of a case-by-case basis.
b) The rest of the outfit. Jeans with heels and a blazer is a classic look. I also like a blousey, or fitted button down with jeans and heels. Even a t-shirt can work if the jeans are more distressed and the heels aren't too fussy. Unfortunately, this one, again, is a case-by-case basis.

Moving on, while browsing around for some new shoes (!!!!) online, I noticed that the same three colors kept popping up in shoes, clothing and accessories. I'm guessing we'll see a lot of mint, coral and peach this spring.

I absolutely love mint. Sadly, I only own one item of clothing that could be considered mint. (I know!!) Crazy. However, I do have a few pieces of clothing in coral. The big difference between coral and peach is that peach is more muted and is closer to a nude or skin tone. I cannot really ever wear peach unless it's REALLY pinkish in tone. Peach is my skin color. Me wearing peach would essentially make me one of those people that you have to do a double-take when you see them to make sure they are, indeed, wearing clothes. Yep.

What are your thoughts on jeans with heels or mint, coral and peach? Would you ever try/wear any of these trends?

  1. Well, I don't wear heels because I have plantar fasciitis but I LIKE the look on other people. I do wear skinny jeans with wedges.

    I LOVE mint and coral. Peach is OK. Coral is a difficult color for me to wear near my face - it washes me out. So, I wear it on my lower half and in accessories.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
