DENIM STYLE: WASHED OUT JEANS

Hooray for making it through the middle of the week! I am a few months away from hitting the big 3-0 and as I've gotten older, my style has changed. I think it's changed for the better, but of course I'm being biased for thinking that way :-P

In reality though, my style has changed. I now wear longer dresses, skirts, and shorts and "cover" myself up a little more. Alright. So I OCCASIONALLY will wear my blue jean shorts that sit inches below my behind.... but I'm still "young" enough to pull that off sometimes right? Haha! I hope you agree. I think because I mostly wear pieces that are comfortable, the few times that I do go all "daisy duke", it balances out.

Another way that I know that I'm getting older, is because I own more dark blue jeans versus washed out faded jeans. Solid or dark blue jeans are more presentable in a work setting, and overall give a mature look in my opinion.

For sure after 5pm, you can catch me wearing an outfit just like the one on todays post'. For now, these are the only washed out jeans I own :) Here is how I styled them.

A few tips on "how to" wear washed out jeans. It IS possible that any color or print blouse can pair well with washed out jeans. I, however, have found that certain colors tend to look best. The best colors and print to wear with washed out jeans are; grey, white, navy blue, black, and black and white stripes. Which is why I paired this with a navy blue tank and white button-up over.

Having this tank tucked in always works for me! Why? Because it gives me curves and shows some shape. I could of left the tank tucked out, but I didn't want to look slumpy with a loose shirt and over sized button-up.

I had been wanting to pair up this bow style tweed clutch for a while now! I love how this clutch is so dainty and feminine. It added that extra chic touch my outfit needed.
