Light Denim

Target Jeans 4

Fact: Pretty much every pair of jeans I’ve ever bought has been dark blue, white or black. Light denim has never really been my jam. For today’s post with Target, the assigned topic was light or dark denim. I decided to try something new and casually style a super-light jean legging for the look.

Working for a start-up, this summer has been all about the casual looks for me. Adding in this shiny new pair of silver birks (a birthday present!) has been. . . how to I say this . . . life altering. I had a pair in middle school but haven’t thought about the brand until a recent surge of popularity in the blogosphere (I know, that word is the worst). I was planning on not hopping aboard that train but I’m SO glad that I did. They’re like a pillow for my feet and I can wear them all over the place and still be comfortable by the end of the day. I sincerely hope that they stay in style for a while.

Onto the jeans- Dark denim can be dressed up or down but a light-colored jean legging can pretty much only be described as casual which is why I paired them with my silver foot pillows and current favorite shirt last weekend (twice, oops).

    We often gravitate toward dark denim too but perhaps we should consider a lighter wash. Very cute! xo

    Love light denim too, but I prefer it more in the spring/summer. For the fall, the lightest I will go is grey. Love the Birkenstocks; they’re super comfy!

    I like how you combine casual outfits with the dressy statement necklace! You look great wearing this OOTD!
    Also, I agree that side braids are very convenient, especially when you are working very hard and don’t have time to fix your hair all the time. I also like to make a low ponytail for the office look: it takes just 10 second and looks pretty stylish (take a look at the photo).
    BTW here is my recent office look:

    I jumped on the Birks bandwagon too and I couldn’t be happier.
