Most readers probably aren’t old enough to remember a character on a certain kid’s TV show that ended in the 1980s. But I remember Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans, so when I saw these minty skinny jeans, I bought them and added my own twist!
Colored jeans comes and goes every few years, but it’s always been in my closet. In a sea of dark wash denim, the fresh green color is a nice change of pace. These jeans are from Chico’s (only $6.50 at Goodwill) and could be worn rolled up, like I have done here, or tucked into boots for fall or winter.
A sheer, flowing white blouse by French Connection is perfect on it’s own or layered under a jacket, sweater or blazer. For these still-cool spring days and nights, throwing on the gold, white and pink striped cardigan by Black House White Market (ironic something from Black House White Market is gold and pink!) adds warmth and style.
I tied the look together by adding accessories in the same color palette. A gold and mint chunky necklace, delicate gold flats from Tahari (which were new with the tags for $99.00!) and a pink hobo bag by Etienne Aigner complete this casual, clean look.
Keep your eyes open when shopping at Goodwill. You never know when style inspiration can strike! And tying an outfit together with your accessories gives you that polished look – even when your outfit is based on an 80s kid’s show!
