About ten years ago, I absolutely hated jeans! That’s right everyone’s favorite, go-to, life-wear was my worst nightmare. I just was misinformed and believed all jeans were light blue denim, mom-jeans, which had to be saggy in order to fit! If you had asked me then if I ever saw myself wearing jeans to work, I would have scoffed at your suggestion big time.
Dark denim trouser jeans were introduced to me by Stacy and Clinton on WHAT NOT TO WEAR and I would wear them every day if I could. This was another one of those things that I had to try them on to be convinced that they were slimming and stylish. I wore a pair once to a football game and one of the moms asked me why I was so dressed up! Such is the power of the dark denim jean.

Today’s look is just one of the many ways that I style them for teaching, but what is so great about this jean is that you can wear it almost anywhere. I have worn them to work, church, casual functions, shopping, luncheons…and I have never felt out of place. By the way, this Jones of New York animal print top was purchased at the resale shop in Blanco, TX. I wrote about on Monday. Gigi talked me into it!
I also think it is perfect for Silverstyle’s Trending through the Decades: Animal Prints Challenge Who knows how old this top really is, since I bought it in a re-sale shop, but one thing is for sure, animal print is ALWAYS in vogue.
