Today we went to Avondale, Florida. It was a rainy day and Petersen A doesn't like rainy days -- water combined with red hair stains shirts! So our time there was mostly spent looking at dbDesigns and wandering around small stores to avoid said rain.
As for what we wore...Colored jeans seemed to be perfect for our first fashion post. Betches love skinny-colored jeans. Why, you might ask? Think pop of color with the comfort of wearing pants - rainy days are great for pants. (Sarah B may disagree because hers were a bit of a downpour casualty, to say the least). The benefit of colored jeans -- versus printed jeans -- is that it makes the classic jean trendy with the benefit that they are not soo trendy that when they "go out of style" they can't still be worn. Investing in a pair of jeans that are colored may be a good idea for the long run, since summer will be ending soon and fall fashions will be coming our way, find a color that is more season-neutral (such as greens, blues or reds). Matching your colored jeans with an eyelet linen top is a way to tone down the look to be comfortable yet cute.
