Faux Suede Skinny Jeans

I few weeks ago, before the cherry blossoms blew away in the wind, I debuted my new, faux-suede skinny jeans.

Pants: Swapped
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Fred Meyer’s
Cuff: Etsy
Trench (below): Swapped

I picked these up at a clothing exchange earlier this year. They’re so soft and, well, suede-like. A great example of how you can get the look and feel without the actual skin. Plus, these are stretchy and machine-washable. You can’t say that about suede. I picked up the same brand and style in gray corduroy too. I don’t know who dumped these terrific pants, but thank you!

I paired my pants with a simple long-sleeved t-shirt and threw on a scarf. I like the subtle elephant pattern of this scarf.

Nothing says spring like a trench coat. I threw a patterned coat (also from an exchange) over my outfit. It color-coordinated and introduced another pattern, which I like.

Green and White and Wet All Day

This month’s Everybody, Everywear challenge is green! I love green and actually have a few green pieces that I was considering, but the weather chose for me. It’s a rainy day in Seattle (no surprise there) so I went with my green satin trench coat. Don’t forget to check out how the others wore green!

I debuted this coat on my blog almost a year ago. The first time I wore it with blue jeans and white booties. The white jeans I chose today changes the look a lot, I think. White makes any color pop.

I always manage to splash water and mud up the back of my pants when I walk in the rain so I’ve learned not to wear white jeans when it’s wet outside. However, the tall boots will save my pants so today I tucked my jeans into them. Who says you have to save white for summer?
