Solidarity

Sweater: Forever 21 (shop)  |  Mint jeans: Target (similar, similar)  |  Heels: Target (similar, similar)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments (shop)

Not much to say today and not a lot of time to write either!  I will say that I loved this outfit.  However, I don't think that a lot of the people I wore this around knew what to do with it, the mint jeans and all.  Not because they think mint is out, but because they didn't know mint was ever a "thing."  They probably thought I was just weird that day, but if that was the case, oh well.  I loved it.  And I knew I could come back here for some solidarity, to the land of the free, where pants that resemble crayons, unnecessarily enormous statement necklaces, and leopard pumps are embraced.

*Edit: the first link for the mint jeans was broken but is now working.  They're $19.99 from Gap!

  1. I just got my mint jeans in the mail yesterday. I'm not a tiny person so I might have a little trouble pulling them off. You, however, look fabulous! I wouldn't have thought of the leopard pumps. LOVE that!! Thanks for inspiring me daily!!

  3. Love the jeans, love the combo! "Where pants resemble crayons" - maybe my favorite quote of yours!

  5. I usually don't go for pastel, but the mint and navy looks so cute. Also, your hair is looking particularly great in these pictures, I think. :)

  6. Mint jeans..possible crops are on my wish list... they look great with navy... I have all those same feelings everyday... at least you live on the coast, here in the midwest, pajamas are the outfit of the day here.... :(

  7. This is adorable! Are you concerned that you won't be able to wear the mint jeans once they are considered out?

  8. I have these same jeans and love them so much! I love that you paired them with leopard, I'll definitely have to try that!

  10. Haha...well, I kind of thought they were already "out" and I still wear them anyway, so...nope!

  11. Aw man, I do feel your pain. Well, you rock it with the mint jeans in the sea of pajamas. And come back here to blogland for some solidarity too!

  18. Audrey, you look so casual chic! I love your necklace! Maybe I forgot to tell you that I did enjoy SD a lot and your advice about shopping was very helpful. As I had saved for my trip it was ok to go bananas!

  19. Love the necklace!

  20. I <3 mint and navy!

  21. Daaang. Totally went to check out those mint jeans, because $19.99 is excellent and they didn't have my size. Oh well! I love your outfit! I definitely love that necklace!

  23. love the mint jeans! too bad the ones from gap are a little too neon for me =)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, dear. Your $19.99 Gap link sent me over there... the mint ones weren't left in my size, but I just ordered some lilac ones for $21.99 plus 25% off! Woo. Owning 4 different colors of jeans isn't too much, right? Also, LOVE this outfit on you. Perfectly simple and gorgeous.

  25. The second link is from Forever 21 with a bunch of sizes in stock!

  26. Thank you, Anna! You did tell me that your trip was great. Did you post any sort of recap on what you got? How was Target and Old Navy for you?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I still love that necklace! Why haven't I gotten it for myself yet?!

  28. I wonder if mint will be one of those things that we look back on in decades to come and wonder how it ever came to be. For now, though, I'm all over it.

  31. MINT IS NOT OUT! (I hope.)

    I love the simplicity of this outfit, and how you were able to bring it up a notch with the mint jeans and necklace :)

  32. i love the blue with the mint! The day I wore my kelly green jeans to my office, people had NO idea what to do with me. I probably shouldn't have paired it with my polka dot too (too loud statements together) however I LOVED the outfit and thats all that matters!

  33. Love the mint and navy!

  34. Totally honest, not sure how I feel about the pumps. However, this is one of my favorite outfits from you ever! Even if I'm not sure about the shoes lol.

    ReplyDelete
  35. "They probably thought I was just weird that day." That is such an accurate description of what I am sure people think of me, too. The good news is that your jeans are fabulous and they look awesome with the leopard shoes and navy top!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This has got be my favorite outfit you've put together! Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lovely. I had never thought to pair these colors together, but you've convinced me that it totally works :) I love your necklace!

    I have those pumps and they are so awesome! Haven't worn them yet because it's been one snow storm after another here, but soon. I also love your necklace.

  41. This is probably one of my most favorite of your outfits and I can't wait to replicate it (although with mint shirt and navy pants). I'm pretty sure that some people in my Office wonder if I know what I'm doing, but I guess it's ok since I am the visual director and I'm supposed to be "artsy".

  42. I LOVE this outfit and would wear it today in a heartbeat!

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOVE! I want to order a sweater like that but I'm not sure what size to get. I'm usually a small but at forever 21 I don't always fit a small....Ahhh not sure what size to get! Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm usually a S or M at Forever 21 and I got this sweater in small. I have a small chest, too, but I still ordered the M because the S was sliding up my wider hips.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you SO much that totally helps me choose the size! I'll go with medium too! Thanks again! <3

    ReplyDelete
  46. I didn't need to know that. Ha.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Zappos pinned you in this one about an hour ago, Audrey! Good job.

    ReplyDelete
  48. SO, SO fantastic

    I think you have a great eye for color, and the fit of your clothes is stunning. Don't listen to the haters. <3

  49. I just love this outfit! Simple but interesting... with a special twist.
