Denim Daze

Skirt The Rules // Faux Fur Trimmed Coat

Getting dressed in the morning is usually my favorite part of the day … that is, until this time of the year.  When it’s cold enough to see your breath in the air or frost on the car, I can barely manage to pull myself out of bed let alone put clothes on!  For the next two months, finding the balance between warmth, comfort and style is key.

Skirt The Rules // J.Crew Chateau Parker Coat in Gray

So when Lee sent me jeans to try on a few weeks ago, I was A) excited to throw on an outfit that didn’t involve leggings and B) pleasantly surprised at how comfortable their denim is!  I promise you, their Slimming Stretch fabric is a winter wardrobe game charger.  The denim is super stretchy, contoured to fit and above all else, feels so good.

I loved the saturated hue of this straight leg pair and embraced the timelessness of the denim with a simple sweater layered over a plaid shirt.  Between the faded wash and the pops of plaid and leopard, it felt like the perfect balance between casual and cool.  I’ll be over on their blog styling another denim look this week, so be sure to check it out!

    Winter styling is always the toughest!!!

    Can’t believe you took your coat off for some of those shots, when there is obviously snow on the ground!

    You must have been freezing 😀

    Right? I remember when getting dressed was fun and it didn’t involve a million layers and then a coast on top of that to completely hide the outfit!

  11. I love J Crew and you outfit rocks. I always go to visit it when I’m in US. I don’t know why but in Italy there is any shop. Coat, sweater and shirt are perfect.

    Haha totally get you! Winter is the worst, you never want to get out of bed. And I live in Cali now so the weather is always nice but even when I was in Washington for only a week I couldn’t get even a single outfit picture done because I couldn’t hack the cold kkk
    Love the look, the jeans look great and love the coat

  15. I attended a Lee event here in Chicago a month or so ago and was really impressed with their jeans. You look adorable in them and I love your coat.
