Cheers to Friday, friends! My Fashion Friday linkup is BACK! I apologize for the inconsistency over the past few weeks. When I have a sponsored post due on a Friday, I can’t host the linkup because of potential conflict of interest, and it seems like I’ve had a lot of requests for Friday posts lately.
So the burning question I keep getting is, are colored jeans still in style?
The answer is most definitely yes! I’m seeing the trends leaning more towards light pastel colors, but colored denim is definitely still going strong.
I have a few pairs but the ones I find myself gravitating to the most this season is this light pink pair.
These are a few years old. They’re 7 For All Mankind, and I love the released hem and cropped length. There are a few left on Amazon (the color is Pink Sunrise), and this year they brought this color back in a higher rise with a traditional hem that are currently on sale at Bloomingdale’s.
These jeans are a lightweight twill with quite a bit of stretch (so not really denim at all) and they’re comfortable to wear all summer long except on the hottest of days.
They have a nice fit, and they run true to size. I have the size 29. I could wear the 28, but I don’t like my light colored jeans to be too snug so I opted for the larger pair. I also hang them to dry so they don’t shrink.

I am dubbing this sweater the official beachy sweater of summer 2019. And bonus, it just went on sale!
This is the perfect sweater to throw on with jeans (regular or a color) for a chilly summer night at the beach (or a chilly spring day like today!) It would also be cute with shorts or a casual skirt.
It has a hood, which is always a fun detail, and the wide ribbed cuffs and split hem are also nice touches. It does have the dreaded drop shoulder, but it works with the slouchy styling.
It’s very soft and the knit is thick enough not to be see through but not too thick for this time of year, if that makes sense.
This sweater also comes in navy, pink, yellow, and a fun multi-stripe. It’s true to size; I have it in a small.
To keep the look super casual, I wore my white leather sneakers. These aren’t new to anyone who’s been following along for a while, but I can say that the more I wear them, the more I like them.
They’ve broken in well now, and I can easily wear them without socks for a few hours. If I travel in them, I wear white no-show socks to be on the safe side.
I’m also carrying what is quickly becoming my go-to spring handbag — this Tory Burch McGraw hobo. I looked for quite a while before deciding on this bag, and now that I have it, I can’t believe it took me so long to bite the bullet on this purchase. I kind of liked it from afar for a while, but once I ordered it and put it on my arm, I haven’t wanted to take it off.
It’s a great everyday size — not as large as the totes I normally carry, but big enough to carry what I need. I think the styling is so pretty, and it’s just so easy to use. Everything is accessible and there’s no zipper or flap closure to futz with. The single carrying strap is the perfect length to carry in your hand, over your arm, or on your shoulder. The leather is gorgeous, and it’s unlined inside (my preference) but with 2 slip pockets that easily fit a large smartphone. The ivory goes with absolutely everything, but it also comes in sand, taupe, and violet.
Unfortunately it’s excluded from the Tory Burch spring sale, but it does qualify for the Bloomingdale’s Power Points offer — Loyallists get a $25 Reward Card for every $100 you spend — so basically you get $75 back to apply to a future Bloomies purchase.
I realize some of you are getting warmer weather and may not be wearing spring sweaters at this point, but for those of you still getting snow and mucky weather, pairing pastel colored jeans with a white sweater is a great way to inject some springtime in your wardrobe while still being weather-appropriate.
