OOTD-I'm Watching You

Happy Monday guys! For once, I'm going to be happy to see Monday because I am one step closer to stuffing myself silly with food in just a few days, lol. I can't wait!!

While heading out for the evening this weekend, I decided to show off my new jeans. They certainly are bright, aren't they? I tried them on ages ago at J.Crew and immediately wanted to take them home with me, just for the color alone, but that $125.00 had me cringing. I have a good selection of designer jeans in my closet, but I don't recall ever paying full price for the majority of them. I stalked these suckers like a hawk, but this color never went on sale...until two weeks ago. The crazy thing is I took them off my radar because I had lost hope on getting a good deal, plus I really don't need more jeans. But all bets were off when they came down in price; I made these babies mine in a hurry. I couldn't help it, bright colors make me happy. And happy I was prancing around in my bright new denim and high heels, that I only wore them because I would be sitting down. I'm such a high heel wimp. ;)

What's your denim purchase persona? Do you like to buy designer or the more budget friendly options? If you buy designer, do you generally pay full price?

  1. i was checking out those jeans too.
    How did you determine your size? i am usually a 0 or 2 in cafe capris. TIA!

    Lovely outfit!

    1. Hmm, these jeans come in waist size, not number sizes. I ordered a size down than I normally get in jeans but only because I ordered the tall. I would tell you to order your normal size.

  2. I am glad you got those jeans. I really love the toothpick style and it's so comfortable. I want them in all colors too.

    1. Oh, there are definitely some delicious colors, so I can see why you'd want them all. I'm trying to stay away from the denim because I have way too many pairs.

  3. I love the fit of most JC denim on me (except toothpick, which I hadn't tried yet) but I buy most of mine on heavy sale or via Ebay. I just can't swallow the price of some denim, plus JC did away with the hipslung jeans, my fave!

    Have a great holiday week!

  4. So pretty, I actually thought those were a pinwale corduroy before I read the caption. I wear high end & low, as long as they don't LOOK cheap, nothing worse than tacky denim. But I hate paying full price, it actually makes me angry lol! My favorite skinnies though, are dark denim with stretch that I got at Lands'End of all places, marked down to $12.50.

  5. Love all the colors in this outfit! I've been debating if I should get those jeans or not. Ended up talking myself out of it even though the color is amazing.

  6. The color of your pants is so gorgeous!


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
