Just because I like to keep things interesting, I thought I'd introduce something new to Southern In Law - a Style series. These are just going to be fashion tidbits every now and again for something fun and different.
Let's be honest here, I'm a bargain queen. I buy clothes on sale and I'm not afraid to say I buy clothes from Kmart from time to time. Why? Because I don't care where my clothes come from, as long as I like them.
Having Jesse live so far away means our money goes towards plane tickets or saving for things we'll need in the future, rather than luxury items. This is why I decided to start posting fashion tidbits on Southern In Law - because I know I'm not the only one whose wallet goes running for the hills the second they click onto a fashion blog.
Sure, I have a few luxury items, but they've been chosen for specific reasons - like a staple skirt that I'll wear for years or my real pearl jewelry pieces, bought simply because that's what I love.
Fashion shouldn't be about the price tag or what designer's name is plastered all over the place. It should be about what you love and what suits you, your personality, and your figure.

In stores at the moment, you can find lots of printed denim. Floral prints, geometric prints, swirls, animal prints - you name it.

But how do you pull them off without looking like some kind of walking billboard or drawing attention to the wrong areas?
To put it simply - how can a normal person wear a printed jean?
I think the best thing to remember with printed jeans is not to introduce any other patterns - you want to look for plain, solid coloured accompaniments (in this case a top and blazer) so that it doesn't become any busier than it already is.
Where can I find them?
- The jeans are the Baroque Tux Jean from Cotton On ($49.95)
- The bag is the Cindy Belt Tote from Colette ($49.95)
- The sunglasses are the Glamour Quilted Oversized Sunglasses in Nude from Equip ($21.99)
- The blazer and top are random internet finds (if someone knows where to get that top - please tell me, because I love it!)
So tell me, have you tried the printed jeans look?
if not, will you?
