Well, I had so much fun with my red jeans project that I decided to do a round two! But this time, with my green jeans!
When I first saw these greens jeans at Gap, I squeaked. No, really, I let out a little yelp! They were already sold out online, and my local store had just a few pair left. Oh, and there was an incredible storewide sale going on 🙂 The sales people said that, much like the red, they can’t keep these green jeans in the store. They’re selling too quickly to keep them stocked. So I am happy I grabbed a pair, and I think I’ll wear them all spring and summer! Not only is green my favorite color (well, most days. I admit that I am a bit fickle, though), but it makes me feel all happy and nostalgic. I cannot look at this particular shade of green (kelly green) without thinking of Ireland. It reminds me of some of the most beautiful scenery that I’ve ever laid eyes on.
The point of this project is exactly what it was for the red pair, only with an additional challenge. As with my red jeans project, the goal was to pull anything out of my closet that would work with my new pair of jeans…without buying anything else new. This can be very challenging, if you’re anything like me, because you don’t feel like your closet is full of the latest and greatest. Especially after spending just ten minutes on Pinterest and seeing all of the fabulous things that people are wearing! But I digress.
This time, I gave myself an additional challenge! Rather than using some of the same tops/vests/jackets that I used with my red jeans project (which was tempting since some of those stripes would have also looked great with green), I decided to use only items that I had NOT already used in the red project. Huge thanks to my hubs for doing another style project in our photo booth for me!!!
So…here are my 15 outfit combinations with my kelly green jeans!
