Torn jeans for fall

torn jeans fall 2020

wearing: pale green and gold earrings / fall lipstick / black boxy tee (under $15) / black belt with snake buckle / black bucket bag / torn skinny jeans / fall nail polish / chain link bracelet / loafer slides (similar under $150) /

I cannot believe I am saying this; torn jeans are hot for fall.

We enjoyed a short reprieve from the destroyed denim trend over the past year. That reprieve is over. While I enjoyed looking at clean, intact denim for the past year, there is something about torn denim for fall which intrigues me. Perhaps it is because we are all a little torn inside this year, so seeing torn denim for fall just feels right.

I have to admit, I am loving the character of torn denim. The destroyed knees, and frayed hems, have been in and out of style since I was in middle school. There is something edgy about it; not to mention the tears offer some free air conditioning during the fall months. Fall seems like it would be a cool season, but once the morning fog burns off, we can get temperatures in the 80’s, 90’s, and even 100’s. Is it winter yet? Asking for a friend. . .

This pair of torn skinny jeans is super comfortable; and I love the variation of the frayed hems. They work well with both flat and heeled footwear. Right now, while temperatures are still warm, I love pairing them with my loafer slides since it offers a fall vibe, while allowing me to stay cool. If you don’t have a pair of loafer slides yet, what are you waiting for? Seriously, they are classic and versatile. You will love them!

I wore this outfit out on a walk with my family in downtown Saratoga. The city “hid” six, large metal acorns around the downtown area, so the kids had fun searching for them. Turned out the “hiding” places were on top of planters or benches. haha We also enjoyed seeing the new parklets for outdoor dining. I was in love with the parklet for The Plumed Horse, pictured above. It had chandeliers! Fabulous!

The fall 2020 season is also bringing us a 90’s MTV vibe. This oversized, boxy tee is reminiscent of 90’s hip-hop, and I am here for it! After all, us GenX girls made the 90’s happen. My teens may think this is their trend, but it’s really mine and ours. HA! So let’s enjoy the resurgence, and rock our boxy, oversize tee’s, with patchwork denim or torn denim! We got this!

What do you think of the return of torn denim for fall? Will you be rocking this trend?

Thanks for stopping by!

Feeling spring vibes in a spring trench coat

wearing: blue and silver earrings / lipstick / black twist tee / black belt / spring trench coat / spring nail polish / Chloe bag / spring jeans / Gucci slides /

Ooooh, it’s starting to look a lot like spring over here! The groundhog was right! The Magnolia’s are blooming, white and pink tree blossoms are flourishing, and the flowers in my front yard are starting to peek out of their green buds. The sun is shining, and offering us daytime temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. Of course, since it is still winter, the mornings are hovering in the 40’s, and at night it is quite cold. We are getting there!

It feels so close to spring! The spring vibes during the day are causing me to pull out my new spring pieces before I have figured out my spring wardrobe! This spring trench coat is perfect for cutting off the morning chill. It’s lightweight, yet heavy enough to keep me warm with just a tee underneath during our winter mornings. Then, I can take it off during the warmer hours, and put it back on when the sun starts to set, and temperatures drop dramatically. Plus, spring trench coats are a hot trend this year, so you know I will want to rock that!

As we move into spring, denim washes are getting lighter. Hemlines on jeans are starting to hit at the ankles, or be cropped. Look for styles which will show off your fabulous new spring shoes! I have not looked into spring footwear just yet, but slides are definitely hot this year. Thankfully I have my go-to Gucci slides which I love wearing every spring and fall season. They are easy to put on, and offer enough coverage to keep my toes warm. They are great for transitioning from winter into spring. Love them! This pair will definitely be in spring capsule wardrobe! Stay tuned for that. . .

How are temperatures where you live? Are you getting a peek at spring yet?

The softest skinny jeans for a cozy winter

wearing: blue and silver earrings / lipstick / white knit turtleneck / black belt / black knit wrap c/o Chico’s (on major sale!) / soft skinny jeans c/o Chico’s / spring nail polish / Chloe bag / boots (sold out, also love this pair) /

Ooooh, Chico’s has a new denim style! I have been a fan of Chico’s denim for quite some time. They always use ultra soft denim, and their jeans keep their shape after washing. So, I am super excited about their new skinny jeans!

I was thrilled to find a surprise box on my doorstep earlier this month. Chico’s had sent me a pair of their new skinny jeans to try. I was thrilled! How did they know I love their jeans??

The new skinny jeans from Chico’s are made from a really soft and stretchy denim fabric. They are very comfortable, and after washing them twice already, they have kept their shape and color. Love!

As we move from winter into spring, denim is giving us a few new styles to wear and love; thankfully the skinny jean is one of them! Actually, skinny jeans are the only mainstay in the world of denim trends right now. So investing in a good pair will carry you from season to season in 2020. It’s the most classic style on trend right now! In addition to skinny jeans, spring will bring us high waist styles, skinny cropped jeans, wide leg trouser jeans, and cropped classic fit jeans. Skinny jeans are the only style you can wear now, in the winter, and continue wearing into spring and summer. It’s the ultimate denim style for staying on trend, and not having to buy new jeans every season!! You know I love a good investment buy 😉
