Colored jeans can be a fun piece to add to your summer wardrobe that will make your current outfits look like new! 

I found a cute & fun pair of yellow jeans from Loft and they are a great fit and inexpensive! Right now they are around $79 but I got mine for 50% off with a coupon. I plan to pair them with the following:

  • a fun print top
  • a black & white stripe shell
  • a white tank and cardigan
  • a blazer
  • a lightweight sweater
  • a jean jacket

By adding one key fun pop of color you can instantly have a new array of outfit choices.  Colored jeans are going to be my new go to piece to add to any outfit to make it look like new! Check out EverLane, the Gap, Loft, or Old Navy for some color choices.  

Honestly it’s been YEARS since I wore jeans with color. Again, I was told it wasn’t something a plus size gal should wear.  In fact, when I was a kid I REALLY wanted a pair of Dittos. Who remembers Dittos!?  In the late 70s and early 80s they were the “it” pants to have but there was one problem, they didn’t really come in plus sizes way back when.

I vividly remember asking my mom for a pair, going to try them on, and they didn’t fit. I was heart broken. So I did what any tween I knew would do…I went on a fad diet until I could fit in a pair. 

They were powder blue and I LOVED them. They were my favorite jeans and I wore them almost every day until the day I fell and skinned my knee. That was the last day I wore my Dittos because they had a hole in them so my mom said I couldn’t wear them anymore. We didn’t wear jeans with holes in them. LOL!

Now I am all about wearing what’s comfortable and what I feel good in. I love these new yellow jeans! How can you not smile in them? They remind me of sunshine and my first pair of Dittos. 

What’s in your wardrobe that you love? What piece(s) makes you smile?
