It has been unusually warm in Chicago and I can’t get John Lennon’s Nobody Told Me, “strange days, indeed” out of my head. For my outfit today I took a cue from some street style I noticed while driving around on St. Patrick’s Day. Many women took the opportunity on Saturday to wear kelley green skinny jeans. Which reminded me I had a pair of bright blue H&M jeans that both Lauren and I own – we do that sometimes! We both thought royal blue was a good way to wear the trend, yet it still is a darker (more flattering) color you can always pair with black or grey. Today I was able to wear them with a t-shirt and slip on some wedge sandals. The colors violet and green may work the same way, but this blue shade is perfect if you are a Cub Fan!
