Day 7: Conquering Colored Denim

day 7

What I'm wearing: H&M blouse, J.Crew sweater, Zara red jeans, Banana Republic outlet sandals, Forever 21 pearl earrings

I used to be so afraid of colored denim. I even considered returning these pants after I bought them, but ultimately decided it was time for me to try something new. I always thought that bright denim was meant for girls with stick-thin figures, and as someone with more of a pear shape, I would never be able to pull it off. But during my time here in NYC, I saw more and more girls wearing colored jeans and was dying to try the trend for myself. So I threw all preconceived notions aside, and here I am, wearing my red denim proudly! For this look, I kept the top half neutral, but I can't wait to pair these pants with more brights. So lesson of the day: Don't just assume something won't work for your body type. It doesn't hurt to try things on in a dressing room; if it looks silly, you're the only one who will be seeing it. If you really want to try out something new, go for it!

I totally love this look! The red jeans look great, and I love the sweater/blouse combo with them! I'm on the hunt for colored denim at the moment, and excited to finally get my hands on some!

I'm nervous to try out this trend too, though I love it on other people. So thanks for be braving and trying it for "real" girls.
