Blue Jean Serenade

Top: Rebecca Taylor, secondhand, $22 // Jacket: Forever 21, $10 // Jeans: Courtesy of GAP & Lucky // Shoes: Abaete for Payless

As part of the Lucky Alpha Shopper program, I recently received a pair of slouchy skinny jeans from GAP. They are definitely my kind of jeans. The laidback, worn-in feel of a boyfriend style meets the slim, sexy fit of a skinny to create the ideal balance of easy and chic. While I could totally see them with a cozy sweater and boots for a casual weekend look, I opted to add a dose of girly glamour and feminine flair with a structured, ladylike jacket, whimsical silk blouse and classic suede pumps.

Cute jeans. The whole outfit is adorable, but I'm pretty sure the jeans are stealing the show.

Very cool!

Those jeans are lovely, and your jacket is so nice, it really reminds me of Chanel!

Those are my kind of jeans too. And they look great on you. You're right this could totally be a lazy sweater kind of outfit too!

Those jeans are fantastic and can I just say your hair is lovely. I shaved my head a few months ago and it's about your length now. It's good to know that you can still be gorgeous without the long locks

I usually prefer your outfits when you're wearing dresses, but this one is a winner in my book. those jeans are nearly perfect, and they match your style so well!

Louise said...

Even though I am biased because I just finished a 5-year stint at Gap, I have to say that their jeans are the best for their pricepoint. I have those jeans and love them!!

Yes! I like the pink ruffle busting out of the blazer! So French, BUT, my favvvvorite part of the picture is the garbage on the ground! This is real-live fashion people!
