Coated Denim & Houndstooth

It’s Friday people!!!!

I’ve been dying to try out my new coated denim.  Today, I decided to try these jeans in a casual Friday look that also functions as an easy day-to-night look.

Jeans:  Target (Available here)
Bag:  Express (Available here)

I love the look of leather, but due to personal beliefs, I choose not to wear it.  These vegan (and cheaper) alternatives are great because you get the nice lightweight feel of denim with the look of leather.  I did notice that during the day (after 8 hours in the office) the jeans started sagging in spots (as you can see in pics), but it didn’t bother me too much.

Blouse:  New York & Company (Available in blue and black here)
Blazer:  The Limited (Similar here)

Houndstooth plaid is a perennial fall favorite, and it is big for this fall.  I love this feminine blouse with the high-neck bow and peek-a-boo keyhole neckline.  Adding a blazer dresses the look up a bit for the workplace.

Cuff:  New York & Company (Similar here)
Shoes:  Target (Available here)

I added burgundy pumps for a pop of color and a little bit of extra shine.

With kids, I rarely go out after work, but I would definitely wear this look for a night out with the girls.  Take off the blazer and loosen the neckline, and the look is relaxed and subtly sexy.

Do you like the look of coated denim?
