Mom's Must Have Summer Items Series - Week 1 JEANS.

Hi Everyone and Happy Friday!! Summer has been kicking in high gear for a while now and I'd say it is even more necessary to stay Comfortable while keeping Cool. For the next few Fridays in a row The Beautiful Agnes from Vodka Infused Lemonade and myself will be styling several Summer items of clothing that we think each Mom should own in her closet. =)

This first week we are doing Jeans. Of course, every woman should have at least 2 pairs of well-fitted Jeans, one light wash and one dark wash. But I believe this is even more necessary for a Mom. I decided to show you My Newest Jeans two different ways from Day to Evening. I decided to try a trend that is coming back on Style (from the 80s days) & purchased a pair of Acid Wash Jeans. While they are definitely noticeable, the best part is that they fit so well. And they are like a Straight/Skinny pair Jeans which is my go-to-style when it comes to Jeans.
In the Day Outfit I cuffed my Jeans and paired them with a Girly, Color-block Tee & Electric Blue Jelly Sandals with Neon Circles in the front. I added a Round-Buckle Belt, some Fun, Teardrop, Dangly Earrings (they are very Light), a couple of Fun, Neon Bracelets & a Long Necklace. I even dressed up my Sock Bun with a Silky Scrunchie which ties on the bottom like a Bow. While in the Evening Outfit I left my Jeans Long & Lean, wore the Mint Blouse with Tigers printed on it, an Elegant & Dainty Silver Chain Necklace featuring an Electric Blue Fireball & some Mint, Oval-Shaped, Semi Precious Stone, Post Earrings. I kept the hair in a Sock Bun once again, added in a couple of Fun Glass-Beaded Bracelets and as far as Shoes I wore Heels - Cork Peep-toe Pumps. I also added in an Envelope, Glittery, Faux Snake-skin Clutch. I also want to let you know that almost everything I have on in these 2 outfits is new: the Jeans, the 2 Tops, the Fireball Necklace, the Neon Sandals, the Neon Bracelets, the Ponytail Holder, both pairs of Earrings & the Clutch. So, in a way I am showing off all my New Purchases from June, too. I guess I did a challenge within a challenge and not only did I style my Jeans in 2 ways, I even wore a lot of my June Purchased items. What do you think of each Outfit? Do you prefer the Day or the Evening Look?
