Fall trend alert: colored denim reigns supreme

Bonjour ladies... I am ecstatic that my friend AJ is filling in for me today. I think AJ and I have my favorite blogger friend connection - we met on Instagram y'all, and you know how much I love those tiny little pictures! She is also an Arkansas girl, shoe connoisseur and lover of pugs (even has her own little pug cutie!)... long lost "sole" mate I tell ya!

I know I'm not the only one who is pushing fall. The stores have sweaters out, the boot fairy has visited my house at least three times in the past week, and I'm ready to trade in tank tops for scarves and despite the temps still being in the 90s, I'm ready for my pumpkin spice latte, dang it! One thing I'm not ready to give up from summer is colored jeans, though. So I'm styling these JustFab teal skinnies three ways for fall...because trust me, everyone is still going to be wearing them (and they look awesome with boots! wheeee!)

For outfit #1, I chose an Old Navy printed sweater (they have some cute ones this season!), and contrasting colors in this Limited Necklace and Sole Society flats. Finish it off with a slouchy bag and you're ready to hit whatever the weekend brings.
Outfit 1: Sweater, Old Navy. Jeans (Signature Skinnies), bag (Caper), JustFab. Necklace, The Limited. Shoes, Sole Society.
For outfit #2, I wanted to a dressier outfit, well suited for a girls night out or date night. My formula for dressing jeans up is pretty straight forward - blazer, sparkles, and tall shoes. Top it off with a knot and hit the town.
Outfit 2: Top, Limited. Blazer, Target. Heels (Sarada), JustFab. Clutch, XXI. Ring (Rose Palace Dome Ring), JewelMint.
 For outfit 3, I couldn't help myself, I went full fall and paired the jeans with one of my favorite sweater vest/wrap/thingies and threw on a scarf and boots. It'll be a few months still until I can even think about wearing this, but I wanted you guys to see how cute colored skinnies will be for the rest of the year with boots!
Outfit 3: Top, Forever 21. Scarf, sweater, Limited. Boots (Nabila), Clutch (Hot Spot), JustFab. Ring, Lia Sophia.
So there you have it! Three ways to rock colored jeans post summer. If you're anything like me, you bought every color this spring and summer so I know you'll be looking to remix them all year round!

Big thanks to Jessica for hosting me today! You can find me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pose if you have any questions about colored denim, and drop by anytime at AJWearsClothes.com!

Oh man - one day I am trying to extend Summer, the next I am dreaming of Fall... this "transitional" weather is messing with my emotions... but I think AJ has just pulled me over to the Fall side... love me some color jeans & boots and can't wait to try out some of this delicious inspiration!
