Fabulous for Less Under $250: Spring's Colored Jeans
When making a list of what to buy each season, for me, most important is versatility and comfort. Being a mom, my clothes have to work for me on and off the job. With denim playing a big role in my wardrobe, I knew colored jeans would be a fun trend to experiment with this spring. As for how often I can wear them? Certainly, not as versatile as medium or dark-washed jeans, but there's very little guilt at this price.
Get the Look: For a day of errands. Shopping, post office run, or picking up the kids from school. Where we live, it's spring/summer-like year round. We can go from sandals to boots all in the same season. But for spring, wedges are a favorite. You can't go wrong with a shade of nude. Love it with jeans, shorts, maxis, or mini dresses. The straps on these Charles by Charles David are great as they're designed to move with your feet. I think it looks really chic with these green skinnies. A camel colored sweater or cardigan is the basic that pulls this look together. I accessorized with a printed scarf in a contrasting yellow. It feels unexpected and playful; this one is light and airy. A crossbody is another must this season and essential for a day like this. Again, in a shade of beige for ultimate versatility. Add a cool ring or pile on friendship bracelets to finish the look.
Note: If heels aren't for you, ballet flats are also a fabulous option. Adore this leather bow pair by Steve Madden.
