the green jean debate

When I saw this look on the Anthropologie website I immediately loved it. Kelly green is one of my very favorite colors and I loved how bright and fun this outfit was. However, I wasn’t about to drop over a hundred bucks on a pair of green jeans right now. Or ever.

So when I found a pair of kelly green skinny jeans at a consignment store in town that fit perfectly, I immediately grabbed them! Spending twenty dollars on a “trendy” fashion item you love is way better than spending a hundred! Plus, these jeans are soooo comfy and I know that I’ll wear them all Fall with knee high boots and a blazer.

Initially, I was sort of worried I looked like an elf pairing my green jeans with red heels but oh well. Red heels are always necessary. Even if you look like an elf in July! I wore this outfit to book club and a pizza dinner with Adam last week.

What else would you wear with green jeans other than a plain white shirt?

green jeans: consignment

heels: TJ Maxx (Franco Sarto)

top: Forever 21

bag: consignment (Michael Kors)

necklace: Forever 21

bracelets: mom’s closet <—best store out there

    Major score!!! I am so in love with those Anthro jeans but like you they are way out of my budget for green jeans! Your find looks fabulous on you though. I used to have a pair of kelly green pants and I go SO many compliments on them. Hope I can find a cheaper pair too!

    As for other ideas of what to wear – I’d just play around with different tops. I was amazed at how many colors looked great with my green pants. In a way, green is almost like a neutral. If you think about it, green is the backdrop to everything in nature – so most colors end up looking pretty good with it!

        What exactly is a “Consignment store” – anybody?? I don’t shop often for several reasons (a.k.a dollar bills).

          A consignment store is a place where people drop off their new of gently used clothes/shoes/purses that they no longer wear or like. Then the consignment store sells them, and if they are bought, the person who donated them gets a cut of the profit. They are similar to Thrift stores, but are often “higher end.” Typically consignment shops like name-brand merchandise etc. Also, some consignment stores will only sell items that STILL have the tags on them or have clearly only been worn once. They want items that are as “New” as possible. It just all depends!

          I hope that helps!

    Now – can you please come shopping with me so maybe I can have the same kind of luck finding great deals like those jeans and purse? I feel like every time I go to consignment shops, everything cute is either not my size or everything in the store is dowdy. I need your luck!

    Think of the colors green occurs with in nature, and how well it goes with them. It would go beautifully with pinks and purples, and is less striking with blues. If you didn’t want to go down the crazy-bold-color route, do like you would in a living room: pick a neutral base color and add colored accents, like a cream top an orange pattern or orange bangles.

    Question from a foreigner: what is a consignment store? Is it a second-hand store, or a TJ Maxx type place?

    • Reply

      It’s a second hand store- but people get paid for their items that they bring in to sell, based on a percentage of what the item sells for.

Maybe some pink if you’re not too afraid of the watermelon effect. And browns–you can see from the Anthro pic that certain browns are a good choice.

    cute! I’d probably *try* pink, as to blend with the red shoes (since it seems that you were pretty sold on wearin’ em)…but with fear of looking like a watermelon, I would probably consider a navy blue…a neutral, but with zing. Plus, unlike black and red which can read either dated, racey, or just cheap (though can also be done extremely well) I think a navy exudes sophistication. Yellow pumps with a navy shirt and those green jeans would be amazing…. ugh, *swoon*. GREAT FIND!

    I love that you said red heels are necessary. My sister and I say the same thing. We each buy a pair of red shoes for every season!

    My reaction to the first photo was that those jeans were absolutely hideous… but then I saw the second photo and you look FAB!!

    grey is a boring answer, but grey and green are fabulous together. orange and green are also pretty rockin, as is purple, which you might recall from elementary school art class and the good old color wheel.

    I adore this! Good choice of colors–I love that yellow striped shirt because I have an ongoing love affair with stripes. I really enjoy reading your blog and especially more so now with these fashion posts. I love food blogs, but I love fashion and incorporating the two makes your blog stand out to me.

    I LOVE what you paired them with, the yellow and the stripes totally work and I never would have pictured it if I hadn’t seen you put it on!

    love it!!! I like that you paired the jeans with a yellow top instead of plain white. I think a bright color block shirt would also look supes cute!

    I usually wear darker green (like hunter green or olive) but I pair my green shorts with either black, brown or grey tops, and quite often lavender and burgundy shades.

    I’m so jealous you found green skinny jeans elsewhere! I have been eyeing that exact pair from Anthro but I too cannot bear spending that much money on them.

    too funny! I used to beg my mom when I was 5 for green jeans (my absolute FAV colour!) and wore them every single day (until my mom ripped them off me to throw in the wash). I might need to re-visit the green jean phase at 27!

    Navy blue! I love navy blue with kelly green. Maybe maroon or something with maroon in it? Black? ( I know, not really a color). Pink might start looking a little too preppy, but what about a neautral shirt with a pop of either pink or orange?

    You look adorable!! I seriously wish I could pull off the skinny colored jean, but it’s not the best look for me. But those red heels and bag – to die for!

    I read Good Housekeeping at the gym this morning and remembered reading this post last week. There was an article regarding the comeback of colored jeans and they illustrated this by showing four different pairs ranging in price from $78 to $200+. You got a steal!

    Jenna, you are so beautiful! And you rock for hitting up consignment stores.

    I have mentioned it before, but I will again anyway…I have been reading your blog for years now and have seen you come sooooooo far in your writing and photography. I hope you are proud of yourself-you definitely should be.

    So cute! I would never have thought of the green/gold/red combo but it totally works…I have green pants and never ever wear them cause I think the white shirt is too boring. I’m gonna try to pull inspiration from this and get them out again!

    I LOVE colored skinny jeans. I just bought a turquoise pair on Bloomingdale’s and am absolutely obsessed with them.

    The green jeans are super cute on you! I’d try pairing them with a heather gray T-shirt or anything in white or pastel. The only color I never really mix green with is black (and this is hard for me, considering that I love black and typically think it goes with anything!)

    I am really enjoying this fashion thing… it’s making me want to copy-cat and add fashion stuff to my list of things to write about. 🙂 LOVE those pants, and even better that they were inexpensive. Also really liking your shorter hair – dare I say I may even like it better than the extensions?
