Dress Up Your Denim

jacket- forever 21, top- Target, jeans- Plato’s Closet, shoes- Old Navy

This outfit is from a couple of weeks ago when I participated in Dee‘s Dress up Your Denim Challenge.  The idea was to wear at least one denim piece and create an outfit that would work for both day and night.  I kept things pretty casual here- I think this would be a cute outfit to go shopping in and then for night, throwing on the leather jacket gives it some edge.  Check out how other people styled their outfits here!

In other news, I had a good weekend just relaxing and hanging out with my friends.  On Saturday, my roomie and I walked to the yarn shop to pick up some supplies and it was so fun to see all the new yarns they had in stock!  Plus the weather was nice, so the stroll over there was great.  Then at night, we threw a party and the theme was Real Housewives of New Haven.  We dressed up like we thought the Real Housewives would and there was plenty of wine to go around!  Reality TV is such a guilty pleasure! :D

Tell me: Do you watch reality TV?  If so, what’s your favorite show?

    I only have farmer vision so there is about 3 channels to choose from! So I don't really watch too much but I love me some celebrity apprentice. I don't know what it is about that show!

    Now about this outfit! I love the simplicity of it. Makes it totally put together but with some edge! Very Pretty!

    Yes I did! Though I don't really like musicals, but the storyline was amazing and Sara Ramirez was perfect.

    Thank you very much Casee! I watch way too much TV, haha! :) Yep, I don't think Bravo has had a really good fashion-related show since they lost Project Runway and I don't get the Style Network so I'm not sure what they offer!

    You did such a great job with this look! I love the leather jacket and how it works with the purple. I don't really watch reality TV – I don't think I've ever really tried it! I like random episodes of The Rachel Zoe Project, and of course Project Runway. I wish there were more shows with a focus on the fashion industry but whenever I check the Style Network and Bravo it's always really bizarre stuff that I don't have an interest in. Haha.

    I'm so mad that I ran out of time to participate in this challenge! Oh well, you and the others did such a great job, you didn't need me at all! ;) I adore your top!

    Sounds like your weekend was fantastic. Did you take pictures of your outfits at the party? We'd love to see! The only reality TV I watch is the Amazing Race. Does that count?
