The jeans* I am wearing are a very light wash. I usually don’t wear jeans in that wash as a darker wash is often more flattering and versatile because darker jeans can even work in many work situations or for dressier events. But I wanted to add some lighter colored jeans to my wardrobe as I thought they would be a nice change for spring. Plus, they are really, really comfortable.
Dressing Up Jeans and a Cardigan with AccessoriesWith the light wash jeans I wore a black turtleneck and a long black cardigan. Without any accessories, the outfit was basic and a bit boring. To add some interest I added my multi-strand faux pearls. I always like white pearls against a dark sweater.
I also wore my rose gold flats. They were an unexpected find at Banana Republic in the fall (I believe they were reduced from $100+ to less than $20), and I haven’t had a chance to wear them much yet.
Finally, I carried a statement bag. The bag is Gabs, an Italian brand that’s very popular in Europe. I bought a green Gabs bag when we visited Germany in the summer. This one is a Christmas gift from my sister.
Outfit Details*: Jeans*, Long Cardigan*, Flats (similar splurge*), Gabs handbag (I like this*, this*, and this*).
I think the accessories took the outfit from basic and a bit boring to interesting.
Bacon and Beer Classic at Levi’s Stadium
I wore the outfit to the Bacon and Beer Classic at Levi’s Stadium where Andy was a judge.
We got to taste some decadent bacon dishes (It was veggies and salads the next day, and I made sure to work out extra hard at the gym…).
We also got to hang out in the VIP area and visit the visiting team’s locker room and media room.
Plus, we snuck into the empty stands and took a photo; apparently, we were not supposed to...
Finally, we had some fun on the slide and giant shoe.
