While walking down Haight Street and wearing these pants the other day, a dog came running up to me (and Milo, who was accompanying me per usual) to greet us. His owner – who looked as if he’d perhaps come to Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and never left – trailed behind him. “Sorry!” he said. “Timmy really likes purple.” I’d never gotten fashion feedback from a canine before, but there’s a first time for everything, right?
One of the things I’ve been liking about this season’s colored denim trend is that it brings more color into an ensemble in a natural yet unexpected way. I’ve been trying to think of my mint skinny jeans as I would a regular pair of blue jeans in order to come up with looks I might otherwise shy away from, and thus far I’ve been pretty pleased with the results. It was a little chilly (read: not sweltering) the other morning so I reached for my stack of denim and favorite orange E&J tank and layered on my go-to chambray button-down, but honestly it felt a bit tired. Traded out my bluejeans for greenjeans, and suddenly I resembled one of my favorite frozen confections – success!
