Wear It: Purple Pants with Mia Bella Photography

Mia Bella Photography
This is our final week with Mia Bella Photography.  It’s been so much fun having my outfits professionally photographed that I think we should all send notes of love and admiration to the very talented lady behind the camera and beg of her to continue photographing our outfits each week.  You with me?
In the past few weeks you’ve seen me play with color, get dressy, and go vintage, but for my final outfit I chose to dress down in a casual every day look.  I love to pull on a fun, flirty dress or skirt, but the truth is that 80% of the time I’m donning a pair of comfortable jeans.  Usually they’re of the blue variety, but like everyone else, I am digging colored jeans lately.  For me, I’m particularly digging these purple jeans.
What do you think?  Are you a colored jean fan?

I highly encourage you to take a peek at Mia Bella Photography and the Mia Bella Facebook page, and hit the LIKE button while you’re there. She updates her page daily with amazing photos from her photoshoots, and if you’re a Louisville local, she also updates session openings and special pricing opportunities. For a limited time, she is giving a free 10x13 image when you book a session and mention DIY. Mia Bella specializes in senior, family, and newborn portraits. I’m thinking she should also go into the fashion blogger market.

Kim and I post our outfits here to show off our thrifty and handmade wears. Plus, we like cute clothes. We link up each week with The Pleated Poppy, Whatever Whenever Wednesday, Not Dead Yet Style, Real Girl Style and Casual Friday with a bunch of other bloggers in blogland doing the same crazy stuff we are.

    I'm a big fan of colored jeans, and I really like the subtle shades these offer!

  15. I don't wear them, yet, but I'm a fan of colored jeans. Those are very original - and I like them with the oxfords. Nice. Great photos.

  16. Loving these colored jeans! thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  17. Julee, I love how you paired up these light purple pants for fall. Gorgeous as always!

  18. although i love colored jeans i only have one in turquoise for summer. when i wear jeans in winter i'm the classic blue jeans type.
    your casual outfit is great! i love how you paired the jeans with the wingtip shoes. your photos again are marvellous, you are a good model.

  19. I've been looking for shoes EXACTLY like that for work...I haven't found the perfect pair yet, though. And I would love having a pro photographer around to take my outfit pictures. :)
    I've been wearing colorful jeans for two or three years now...I'm so happy that they're currently in 'style' so that I can easily buy more pairs!

  20. Love the jeans, of course, but your Breton top brings back memories. Not sure of it's true color, but on my computer it is a lavender-grey. I had one that color, and cut like yours when this style was first big, decades ago. I wore it to rags, and it always made me feel like Jean Seberg (dead movie star, way before your time. But she was cool.) Thanks for bringing back the memories! You look wonderful.


I love reading your lovely comments, thank you! Please leave me a link to your blog so that I may pay you a visit, as well. I try very hard to follow back all of my readers!
