outfit: florida girl does denim

August 6, 2014

I’m not sure why I’m already feeling Fall. Maybe it was that Nordstrom anniversary sale or that Target had a row of boots last week? Florida girl here, battling insane humidity and 95+ degree temperatures, and yet, I’m dreaming of fall. Surrounded by palm trees. Can’t explain it. However, when it comes to fall, I often gravitate toward greys, blacks and darker denims so thought I’d do it up Florida-style to show off a new pair of denim on the blog.

I got these jeans last week at Target; for as much as I shop at Target — and particularly clothes — must confess this is my first pair of Target-brand denim. Not sure why but it is. Everyone in my office was so impressed that these were Target. Again, not sure why, but when denim costs just $27.99 new and yet “designer denim” tallies around $200 these days, you automatically look for flaws.

I couldn’t find any. The distressing and color is perfect — and not too exaggerated — reflective more of the photo above than the one below (must have been how the sun hit them to make them lighter looking). The material didn’t stretch out, yet is totally stretchy and comfy, and I personally like that the back pockets don’t have any detailing (age appropriate!). See below for what I’m talking about.

And, because, let’s be honest ladies, denim is as important from the behind as it is from the front. Excellent placement and size of the pockets — nothing is worse when they’re too small, too far apart or too far up the tush. Right? Right.  florida girl wears denim

    Wow, those jeans look waaaaaaaaay more expensive! I live in Florida as well and always find myself dreaming of wearing fall fashion as I see so many great styles out there. The reality is we still have several more months of this hot, humid weather – ugh!

    I have these Target jeans in two different washes and I love them. I can wear them a good 6 times before they need a wash to tighten back up.

    I’ve always been a fan of Target jeans. The sizing is always a little wonky but when I find a pair that fit it’s like magic:)

    Back pockets are so key! I love that these have no embellishments – clean lines make a big difference!
    It is amazing how you can get a great pair of jeans for under $30… why spend more?
