Challenges: Jeans and Accessories

Today I am trying to show a jeans outfit for Jess ( KUT From the Kloth with side stripe detail of black faux leather and a fall accessory for Katerina of a large silver leaf pendant worn on a chunky silver chain. The pullover is welted and worn with a bit of a side tuck to create a diagonal line across the front. I wore a black open textured pullover, navy sparkly socks and pewter booties and bag. (1-3).
Yesterday, the pictures ( 4-6) are mainly to show the black Hoxton released hem jeans from last year’s NAS with taupe...EF silk long sleeved simple top with a taupe faux leather open jacket, also from last year’s NAS, and taupe suede SE booties, taupe leather tote and scarf with color block design of taupe, black and grey. The silk top was worn tucked under the jacket. I felt the neutrals looked seasonal and the scarf has an autumn look

    Joy, what a creative way to cover two challenges, you nailed it!

    Both outfits look fantastic, but #1 is my favorite on you; the all black and silver stand out and black is one of my favorite clothing colors ;) I see a belt for your accessory too and love it, what brand is it?

    Joy I love those jeans in photo 3. You look amazing.

  • Jane replied 1 year ago

    Great outfits! I love the warm colours in the second outfit.

  • RainB replied 1 year ago

    Love the jeans in 3. Lovely outfits!

  • Katerina replied 1 year ago

    Both outfits are superb! I love the silver leaf against the black background, completed with the bag and shoes. The jeans are fantastic too. 
    The second outfit is a fabulous autumn look - great scarf/jacket combination and very you!

    You are rocking this combo of jeans and accessories! Both outfits are great, but the black with the side striped jeans gets a slight edge towards being a favorite from me.

    You look fabulous.  I love the jeans, but I adore the pendant.  

  • Aquamarine replied 1 year ago

    Great job, Joy. The second outfit is especially fab. I am enjoying these challenges and try to participate even if I don’t post photos. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow, Joy - both outfits are super!  I love the jeans and nod-to-fall pendant in #1, and the cascading layers and colors in #2 are great - especially the yummy texture of the silk top! YLF in both!!

    Nice! I kinda love those leather trimmed Kut jeans — do you have a Find for them?

  • RobinF replied 1 year ago

    Great outfits, love the jeans with the stripe. Also, you look great in the warm tones of #2.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all for your kind, encouraging comments. Janet, the Kut jeans are from Nordstrom Rack about a year ago. I don’t know if they are still around. I added a find to this post. I liked that they expanded my jeans collection and added something different. I like wearing them with black and have a black sweater with some shine to it but it is still too warm to wear that sweater. The faux leather really looks and feels like leather but machine washes beautifully..
    Jess, you do see a belt with the first outfit. It is black smooth leather with a simple silver buckle. I do not see what brand it is but I probably bought it in the Nordstrom’s men’s department.
    Katerina, I cherish the sterling silver pendant as it was from a friend who died after a long battle with cancer.

    Joy, these are exceptional - I cannot pick a favourite! YLF!

    You are stinking cute. Both looks are great! Second outfit is KILLER. Those light neutrals are yummy with your hair. 

  • bonnie replied 1 year ago

    Both outfits are terrific. The leaf pendant is beautiful.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you Torontogirl, Angie and Bonnie. Angie this light neutral used to even be better with my hair, but it has gotten whiter.

    I like those jeans very much, great stripe, but your pendant is the show stopper.

  • shevia replied 1 year ago

    Two great outfits! Pendant looks good and the second one suits you beautifully!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Opaline and Shevia. I felt that I looked like i’d Tried in both these outfits.

    Joy, you deserve a star on the jeans walk of fame (right next to Janet in her boot-cuts!) You look so very modern and ‘cool’. I like the shorter bob hairstyle, too. Chic!
