The Tiny Heart: Jolly Green Giant

2.27.2012

Jolly Green Giant

Well, I finally gave in and jumped on the color denim bandwagon. When these first started appearing in stores, I thought, "Ridiculous, they look like they belong to the Jolly Green Giant. Who would wear that?!"

 

 Cardigan-Express (similar), Top-A&F (similar), Jeans-Target (HERE), Necklace-Pure Jewel Designs (HERE), Shoes- Target (similar)

Color denim was a foreign concept for someone that loves wearing black. You can take the girl out of New York, but you can't take the New Yorker out of the girl. And New Yorkers don't do color! 

Well, I am eating my words, people. You can call me the Green Giant (or Gumby or the Green Hornet) now because I love these pants!

How do you feel about color denim? Were you slow to warm up to this trend?

  2. I LOVE colored denim. I was so tempted to buy a rainbow color collection but held myself together. As of late I only have a cobalt pair. These green ones look awesome on you and I love how it is a softer palette, almost pastel will will transition perfectly into Spring!

  3. I totally love the colored denim! I really want a pair of red (I have for awhile now...just can't find the right ones), and pastel for spring! I love the way you styled these green ones! The floral top is perfect!

  4. I love the colored denim. I have a red pair and I am currently on the hunt for blue or green. I've heard that H&M has some good pairs and I just saw that Ann Taylor Loft's spring line has a few pairs.

    1. I have to recommend these Target ones! It was a nice surprise because Target jeans usually are too big in the waist for me but these fit really well...and I loved the $22 price tag!

  5. Hahahha, I'll go with Gumby, just kidding! I love the color denim trend... I hopped right on that bandwagon... and I'm currently rolling on the printed denim trend too (yikes!). It's fun to wear colors!

    1. As you can imagine, printed denim scares me even more than color denim! I'll be staying away from that trend for now...maybe in another 6 months I'll be singing a different tune :)
