Good morning, friends, and TGIF!!! It’s Day 16 of 27 Days of Spring Fashion, and I’m styling blush jeans. Pay no nevermind to the weather forecast this weekend. (We are supposed to get a snowstorm on Sunday.) I simply have no words.

similar denim jacket HERE $59 and HERE $74 or HERE $34
AEO Sateen X Jegging $49 (premium denim options HERE and HERE)

Gold Hoops $28 // bangles c/o Alex and Ani
Kate Spade Gramercy Bracelet Watch $225
Any-WHO. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve been on the lookout for blush jeans, and I found these at American Eagle Outfitters. I absolutely love the color, and they feel fabulous on. These jeans are super soft. They are actually jeggings, and they’re the closest thing I’ve found to premium denim in a non-premium price range — at least in how they feel.
Unfortunately, when I uploaded these pictures to my computer, I didn’t love how they look on. I am hoping it is just because they’re a size too large. My size was sold out online when I was ordering, and not being familiar with their sizing, I took a chance and ordered a size up. You can see that they are too long through the front rise, and they are rather unflattering from behind as well.
I have too much pride to post a rear view, but here’s a side view. Not terrible, but definitely not as flattering as the jeans I normally wear.
I am hoping when I get the right size they will look better. I’ll keep you posted! I was hoping to find a more affordable jean that I can recommend to you all, so I’ve got my fingers crossed. AEO jeans are all my teen daughter wears, and they always look fabulous on her, but then again, she doesn’t have as much to disguise as I do. Ha!
Meanwhile, I do love how this outfit came together, so I’m posting it as outfit inspiration, even though the fit of the pants is a little off.
I love blush jeans with denim on top. I plan to wear them with my chambray shirt at some point, but for these pictures, I styled them with a grey and white striped tee and a denim jacket. This top is from LOFT last year, but they have the same tee again, just in different colors HERE.
My denim jacket is old, but I linked to some similar ones above. Forever21 has a zippered denim jacket, if you prefer that to buttons.
It is perfectly okay to let your t-shirt hang below your jean jacket. I get asked that question occasionally. Here’s how it looks from behind.
I accessorized with gold hoops and my engraved disk necklace.
I can’t wait to see how the smaller jeans look, and if they’re a bust, I think I’m going to go ahead and splurge on the Paige Verdugo that I’ve had my eye on all season. I’ve been hoping to find them on sale, but next week Nordstrom has Triple Points days (March 22-26) and that’s the next best thing! Ha!
