Red Jeans and a Fly Girl


STRIPED TOP - Truelight
RED SKINNY JEANS - LTB
STRAPPY WEDGES - Colin Stuart
BRACELETS - My Mom's (Indian town)
SUNGLASSES - Betsey Johnson
EARRINGS - My Mom's (vintage)



Today I made a trip to the Thrift store with an entire generational entourage.  I went to GW and SA with my grandma, my mom and my two little ones!  Princess Sparkles and Pigtails were actually well behaved (guess they're used to shopping).  It probably helped that my mom, Fair Isle, tootled around with Sparkles and let her pick out toys and $1 clothes.  Fair Isle would hold up various pieces and Sparkles would let her know which ones were pretty and which ones were not.  As for Pigtails, I just fed her A LOT of graham crackers.  My grandmother, Socks, didn't buy anything but enjoyed pushing around her cart and taking a nap on one of the sale couches in the middle of the store. 

I was inspired to wear my new red jeans (yet another birthday gift from Fierce, Fedora and Fancy) after seeing Jenn from the Suburb Experiment and her cute laid back outfit.  I started out with something similar then sorta morphed it into...not sure what style it is...kinda JLo in her fly girl days?  I was excited about these jeans because I know they're super versatile, in fact, I think I'll do a 3 Ways to Wear it post on it later!  I paired it with this striped top that I bought from a local boutique that was closing down.  I got it for $3.50!!!

Anyway, it was a long but fun day.  I always enjoy visiting Fair Isle and Henley, and it was nice to spend some time with Socks!  (For Mother's Day I'm going with Fair Isle and Socks to a Tea Party/Fashion Show, can't wait!).  We may all enjoy thrifting, but something we're not thrifty on is spending time together as a family!

I like it! I can't wait to see your 3 ways - I'm up for gathering more inspiration for the red jeans. :) I went on a thrifting trip today too - with pretty much the same kid issues. The 3-year-old was pretty happy looking through everything I put in the cart but it's a good thing I brought a baggie of Cheerios to keep the 9-month-old entertained.

you're a very wise shopper. Those trousers really look great. If you were inspired, I'm inspired too. I might try that look next time

I like your belt, it really stands out with the trousers. But it's still balanced all in all

Love the red skinny jeans - what a great way to inject color and pairing it with the black and white stripe top is perfect!

I love all the red pants I've been seeing around the blog world. I'm holding out for the perfect pair of red skinny jeans or red trousers. In the mean time, I scored a pair of fun sea foam green jeans on super sale. I'm looking forward to trying out some colored pants in the near future.

Your red jeans are so cute I need to invest in a pair. I actually like the chain belt it makes your accessories pop more especially the bracelets.

I spent some time with my mom, aunts, uncles...etc and grandparent on Sunday. It was too much fun especially when my g-pa fell asleep on the couch..Lol

Tara said...

Love this outfit! I wanted some colored denim, but I totally chickened out when I went shopping and settled for a pair of gray jeans. I figured I'll have to work my way into a brighter color :)

Hope you had a fabulous Mother's Day! (And yes, I'm fully aware of how late I am...seems to be a theme with me lately!)
