How to wear colored jeans

When I first wrote this post I titled it "Colored Jeans.... Must or Bust," but since then I've run out and bought a pair and they are definitely a must!  This fabulous pair I found from Anthropologie are not only super cute, but they go with a ton of different things in my closet.  For those of us on a beer budget, it's great when you can get one staple item for the season and pair it with items you already own.  Here's a few of the outfits I came up with.

 Pair them with a crisp, white button down, matching jewelry, and beautiful blue pumps.  These happen to be a Kate Spade pair and they are too die for!

 I posted a few months ago about this denim shirt I found in the Anthropologie sale room.  I love how versatile this shirt is.  Here it is paired with the colored jeans, a white camisole, and a pair of casual wedges.

 Pair them with this $38 navy tank from Anthropologie and you get a super comfy, shopping or beach outfit that won't break the bank.

So...... colored jeans.  Will you be wearing them?????

Top 5 Hair Products of 2012

Ask the expert stylist...
Stephen Bertram from Trim Classic Barber

What are your top five hair products for the new year and why?

1) Rich Repair by Goldwell Shampoo and Conditioner.  It helps restore the cuticle back to it's natural porous position creating more manageable, softer, shiny hair.  The conditioner can double as a leave in treatment if you need more repair. 

2) Hair Play Makeover Spray by KMS. Spray at the roots.  It soaks up excess moisture and allows you to go longer between shampoos while helping to maintain color and overall health of your hair.

3) Air Power Hairspray by John Sahag.  Very light with a nice hold and memory without freezing hair in place.  Remains movable for today's done, but undone styles. 

4) Young Again, by Kevin Murphy.  It revitalizes the youth and luster for processed blonds.  Simple remedy that fits into your daily blowout routine.  Put it on before blow drying and you'll be amazed at the restored shine and moisture and overall glow of your hair. 

5) Kevin Murphy's Color Bugs.  It's in the same family as a hair mascara.  Allows you to put in fun streaks of purple, pink, orange for a night out that washes out the next day.    Ideal for blonds!

You can find these products at Trim Classic Barber in Nashville, TN

Now..... what are your product must haves for the new year?  I want to hear about them!

My favorite gift cards...Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Tory Burch to name a few!

Did you all get some good gift cards this Christmas?  It seems like it used to be tacky to give money or gift cards at the holidays, but now, it's one of the most, if not the most, given and received gift.  I don't know about you all, but I'll take a gift card any day over some gift that I won't or can't use.  Some of my favorite gift cards this year came from Anthropologie, Tory Burch, Banana Republic and Starbucks.  I can't wait to go out and use these cards to buy a new fabulous spring wardrobe.....and Starbucks, well that was used the very next day!  If gift cards burn a whole in your pocket, as they do mine, please let me know what you all intend to buy with yours.  Here's a few of the items I have my eye on for spring.  Happy Shopping!

Now I just need a really cool scarf to tie these two together.  Any ideas? 
Regular Price $59.99-$98.00
Banana Republic
Did you know Banana Republic now has an entire page online with items less than $100?  Perfect for all of us with the beer budgets!!!


This foundation "provides economic opportunities to women and their families in the United States."  Purchase this cuff and a portion of the proceeds go towards her foundation.  Way to go Tory!!!
