Have you seen the new brightly colored jeans that are all the rage for spring? Who says that our children get to have all of the fun? The flowers are blooming, the tornado sirens are blaring (that is how we know that it is spring here in Alabama), and it is high time to add a little color to your life.
I am partial to the red. It feels nautical.
Do you Polyvore? It is my newest online addiction (because that is exactly what I am missing in my life, new ways to goof off on the internet). I whipped up these collections for my color jeans board on Pinterest. Even my toddler is into it. Her sets are all pink, all the time.
I know what you are thinking. “Katie, there is no way that I am wearing turquoise jeans to my kid’s baseball game.” No worries! You don’t have to look like you are channeling Joseph and his amazing Technicolor dreamcoat. Brightly hued jeans can add a pop of color in a sea of neutrals.
Huntsville needs a Tory Burch store, doesn’t it? Bridgestreet is getting an H & M, and I am very excited about that.
You do not have to spend a bunch of money to find cute color jeans. Target currently has several in stock. And while most color jeans are skinnies, I have seen color jeans with wider legs and in larger sizes. Go on, rock those red jeans, mama!
