I had a team potluck for Africa last weekend and this is what I wore. The rain brought cooler weather, so I took advantage of being able to wear a blazer and jeans. I love the idea of putting cobalt stripes and emerald together via this inspiration photo, but decided to tone it down a bit with neutral shoes and jacket. I originally bought a green pencil skirt from Express, but decided I would get a lot more use out of green jeans. These jeans are my fifth pair of colored jeans (I also have cobalt, plum, pink and lavender), and I still want to add yellow and turquoise to my closet. How many pairs of colored jeans do you own, and how long do you think this trend will last?
