Skinnies, Rose Gold & Silver

Outfit Breakdown: Top: Altar'd State (old)/Jeans: Marisa Jill's/Sandals: Target Clearance/Handbag: Vince Camuto (Nordstrom Rack)/Jewelry: Premier Designs

Hello! It's another day, another outfit. Another success or another fail. What matters is that we keep it going. I'd say this outfit was a semi-success due to weather.  After heading out to run some errands I immediately regretted the skinnies. It's warming up around here and these babies are hot, hot, hot. I'm not quite ready for shorts (more on that in another post - maybe). So I think it's time for a drop in at Marissa Jill's to check out their latest in Judy Blue denim.  Do they make a light weight denim or maybe something with distressed ventilation?  

Like these? They are actually called "Chrissy Mid-Rise"!! Now that's funny. 

This may be too much...The "Sunny Exaggerated Destroy"

Plenty of ventilation there! All I can envision in these are my thighs bulging out the top whole, especially while sitting down.  Yup. Time for a store visit. Until then, I'll hunt through my closet for denim alternatives.

Other than a toasty feel, I enjoyed the look of this outfit. It was thrown together; the accessories an afterthought.  I recently learned that rose gold and silver blend well so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Glad I did!

Rose Gold + Silver = Fab!

What's your go to spring/summer jean? Or do you skip the jeans and head over to shorts? And do you wear rose gold and silver?

***Cupcake Adventures***

I know. Enough with the cupcakes! But I feel a need to make good on winning a cupcake a day for a year. Of course it's impossible to go everyday, but let's just say I'm getting to know the owners quite well in a short amount of time. I can't help myself. Sharing the winnings is a fun blessing, as well as an adventure to me. And my oh my are there a lot of birthdays in May! 

Red Velvet Cupcakes went to hard working, passionate men who love and serve youth in our community.  Their birthdays are a day apart. 

Other dude man was out to lunch...;)

Well, that's all for today. I hope you're week is going well and please comment away. I'd love to hear about your choice of denim (if any) for warmer weather.




  1. Love this casual look! Looking beautiful as always. Obsessing over your bag!

    1. It is funny, isn't it? I give most of them away, so now I'm beginning to crave cupcakes!!! I'm in a world of trouble!

  3. Oh, that top is just perfect! I am also loving those Chrissy distressed jeans. Good to see you are still having fun with the cupcake giveaway. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday.
