Blue my mind

When I saw these Hudson Krista Super Skinny Waxed jeans on sale, I couldn’t resist.


Double peplum:

Hudson Krista Super Skinny Waxed Jeans / Topshop (from Nordstrom) Peplum Top (Cream, size 4) /  Banana Republic Horsebit Link Necklace /  Zara TRF Snaps Blazer / Jean-Michel Cazabat Viena Booties / Material Girl Bracelet (more expensive version), Forever21 spike bracelet (similar), Urban Outfitters Redondo Skull Bracelet, Urban Outfitters Double Skull Bracelet.

If anyone is interested in these jeans, they run a bit small, probably about half a size. I decided to exchange them for a larger pair just for comfort’s sake and to prevent muffin top. Hopefully they aren’t too big. Also, I generally like a low rise, but I wish the rise was about half an inch higher. I didn’t measure (I couldn’t find my measuring tape), but they seem to be about 6.5″ on a size 24. Despite this, I absolutely love these. I’m trying to convince myself that I don’t need them, but my reasonable side is losing.

This peplum top is by Topshop that I purchased from Nordstrom online. I was planning to make my own peplum top, but I haven’t been able to get around to it, so I just gave in to buying one. I’m not happy with this particular top though. The material is too thin and doesn’t give it the structure I’d like so I’m hoping to find one in a ponte fabric. What I have en route is this ponte peplum top from Aqua by Bloomingdale’s:


If it fits, it will hopefully make an appearance on the blog soon!

    Hi AFD — I love those Hudsons on you!! Total keep. 😉
    Btw, I too bought the peplum top…after I washed it, following directions to a T, the quality dropped even more. Nordstrom’s is letting me return it.

    I think you should keep them too. By looking at these photos, they seem to fit you pretty decent. I wanted a peplum top as well but haven’t found one that I like so far =(

    Wow, that is certainly one vibrant blue pant! Definitely needed as a punch of colour against this drab winter weather..

    Anthropologie has a cute ponte peplum top on sale, but it is a bit more of a tank style:

    What a rich colour and they look great on you. My vote is – keep them!

    I have blue colored jeans exactly this hue, and I love them! They are so versatile I think. And I love your shoes. So cute. The zipper opening is a nice touch.
