Meet Sandy!

Hi everyone!  I'm Sandy of Sandy a la Mode and for today, Yi-chia and I decided to do a little bloggity-blog swap.  A little bit about me... besides blogging for a hobby, I love shopping (duh! who doesn't?), chevron, polka dots, stripes, mint, pink, yellow, bubble tea, ice cream, cupcakes, trying new foods, taking pictures, and making my 8 month old baby boy laugh.  My blog is all about my fashion, inspiration, life, being a new mama, recipes, and an occasional craft.  


OK that's enough about me, let's talk about colored jeans!  Yi-chia and I decided to give you guys a little lesson on how to wear your colored jeans into Fall.  Because is it just me, or did you guys also acquire like 10 pairs (and counting) of colored jeans in the past few months?  I have mint, purple, red, white, black, yellow, cobalt blue, raspberry, rust, and mustard.  Yea, usually when I like something, it kind of turns into an obsession.  I hope I'm not the only one, right?  I see you nodding.  Anyways, I've decided to pair my mint jeans with a pretty knit sweater and booties.  Add in some chunky jewelry and your outfit is complete and you are ready for the chillier weather.  Feel free to tuck in your colored denim into taller boots or wear them cuffed (like I did) on top of ankle boots.

Thanks Sandy for showing us how you styled your fabulous mint jeans.  Now be sure to head over to Sandy a la Mode to see how I styled my coral jeans for fall!

Hi Sandy. I am guilty with the colored jeans frantic buying, however I miss on the mint because I can't find the one that fits me good enough.

The floral print is so cute with the mint, I love the pastels! I am ashamed to admit I only have 1 pair of color denim! I hopped on that bandwagon rather late. I'm planning on more pairs to my wardrobe for fall :)

Sandy, I really like this look, mostly because I've been trying to thing of way to wear my booties and mint mint jeans together. The combonation of the mint of the gray is really lovely and romantic with a little edge from the booties, then the gold chains and the floral top keep the look going.
