fall back

denim days are here again! though you often see me in dresses for outfit posts, the truth of the matter is that denim is a very important staple in my daily wardrobe, and at the risk of sounding slightly silly, i happen to be very serious about my denim. obviously fit is the most important factor, but it’s always a bonus when you know you’re buying a quality product from a trustworthy brand. so when james jeans offered to send me a pair, i obviously couldn’t resist. the brand was founded by james and his wife seun here in california, and each pair of jeans are handmade and designed in the u.s. this particular pair is constructed of a warm brown coated denim, adding a beautiful lustre for an almost leather look. and they have quickly become a favorit for fall.

today i pulled them on in my very best early autumn outfit. the skinny fit of the pants with the hems rolled up made me feel a bit mod, so i went for a sort of beatnik-in-the autumn outfit. the california leaves don’t change colors with the same splendor as they do on the east coast, so i like to channel the season with warm autumnal shades of rusty red, burnt orange, and chestnut brown.

to celebrate the season, james jeans would like to offer you 25% off all purchases with code “JJ001” now through december 31!

wearing: james jeans twiggy coated jeans in java, vintage mary janes from pretty penny vintage in oakland, asos coat, l.l.bean signature sweater, j.w. hulme mini legacy bag, vintage hat, nars lipstick in heat wave

  1. I love this outfit – you’ve transported jeans beyond the everyday to a real classic sophisticated look. These jeans fit you perfectly too. I live in skirt and dresses because I find it so difficult to get the perfect-fitting pair of jeans but I’ve clearly just been looking at the wrong brands!!

    1. wow, thank you! that is quite the compliment! and i know what you mean. i also agree that often times dresses seem the easier route, but once you find a good pair of jeans, you’ll want to wear them every day. the key is definitely in finding brands that work for you! for me, that usually means a slightly higher price point, but it seems worth it if you get a lot of wear out of them.
