How to Wear DIY: Printed jeans and dyed wedges

This outfit, featuring those jeans I printed and the amazing wedges I dyed (is it too early for open-toed wedges and mint???!) is about the shape. Straight legs, short, puffy sleeves, tucked in... in my mind, I'm channeling Kendi and Rachel Bilson with this one. Seriously like years ago, someone printed this photo of Rachel Bilson in a tie neck short, puffy-sleeved blouse tucked into straight jeans. Remember?

Source: Cannot find original source!!!

It's bugging me that I can't find the original photo source, sorry 'bout that... I did try. But here are a couple pins that get at the same look!

Blouse: Gap via Goodwill. Necklace: Forever 21. Belt: Charlotte Russe.
Jeans: DIY printed! Wedges: DIY, dyed!

Hope I can bring these jeans, which I did in January, into spring!

So, uh, is it too early for wedges and mint??


  1. I think you look darling! Those jeans are so cute. Do you ever come up to Seattle? I would love to meet you and talk about clothes, hair, crafting, etc. Your home series has been such an inspiration for our townhome, we have a lofted bedroom over the living room and it all shares a wall/window so painting has been a challenge deciding what to do. But I am also a goodwill/craiglist/garage sale re-vamper type.

  2. Super cute! And it's almost May, so it's definitely not too early for open toes and mint.

  3. Oooh, I love this style. I never thought of wearing my printed jeans this way. Thank you!

  4. So cute. I really love how those jeans turned out!

  5. I'm not so sure on this one. I feel like either the pattern is too much or the shoes are too chunky. I would go with a neutral flat shoe with the pants.
