Red Denim + Floral Scarf

The Red Denim Diaries – Part One

This is the first post in my four-part series “The Red Denim Diaries”.  I love these jeans so much that they get a whole series of posts paying homage to their greatness.  My hubby got them for me as a birthday present.  He has great taste.  When I first saw them, I wasn’t 100% in love with them or sure that I would even wear them.  Now they’re a wardrobe staple that get put into rotation at least twice a week.  I’m surprised at just how versatile they are.  The red/burgandy color is perfect for fall.

This is the first time I’ve worn heels in a very long time!  I decided to get a little gussied up for church.  Couldn’t wait to get home and get those puppies off and my flats back on.

Definitely one of my favorite scarves I’ve ever owned.  I picked this up at Old Navy last year.  The colors scream fall!  Read Part Two of The Red Denim Diaries to see how I paired them with a chambray shirt and scarf.

It’s Your Turn:  Does your hubby ever buy clothes for you?  If so, do you usually love them or hate them?

  • I love this combo! The pink is so pretty! I wish it was still a little warm in Minneapolis so I could sneak in a bit of summer into my Fall wardrobe!

      Thanks Rubi! That’s the great thing about Texas (or maybe it isn’t), I get to transition a lot of my summer clothes and keep wearing them. Have a wonderful day!


  • Love this whole look, and you are so right. Red jeans are definitely a closet staple! My husband doesn’t do so well in the clothing department, but he has bought me so really great boots and purses. Heather

      Thanks Heather! Boots and purses are great gifts. Glad he does well in that department. 🙂

  • I adore my red jeans–but I think I put them away for summer. Now I need to fetch them out again. I’m also loving coated denim. Have you tried that yet?


    • PrettyOn

      Hi Nicole! I have not tried coated denim yet but I’d love a pair in black. They have a leather look without being too over the top.

  • love those shoes! and pants

    Love the scarf! I have a pair of plum skinnies that are one of my faves for fall. 😉 They are just so much more fun than blue jeans. 🙂
    And, no, my hubby doesn’t buy me clothes. Which is a very good thing. 😉 He does however, happily let me buy my own which is much better in my book. 🙂

    • PrettyOn

      LOL! You couldn’t be more right about that.

  • I love your red pants!! I need a pair myself 🙂


  • So cute! My husband has great taste so when he buys me things I always love them!

    • PrettyOn

      That’s awesome Katie!

  • I love the idea of doing a styling series around 1 piece.. super smart! I can’t wait to see what else you pair them with – they look super good on you!

      Thanks Nikki!

  • I love coloured jeans but as of yet have not been game enough to wear them. The way you’ve styled them here looks so pretty, I might just have to give it a try! 😀

    • PrettyOn

      Yes, you should try them. I wasn’t sure about them either but am so glad my hubby made me take the plunge!

  • Alison, this is soooo cute!
    Love your color jeans…perfect scarf & heels!
    Too bad they weren’t too comfy cuz they look great!

    • PrettyOn

      Thanks Jeannie! I used to be able to wear heels all the time, the closer I get to 40, the less I can tolerate them!

  • I love these colors together. Very unique.

  • Nice! Talk about a husband who can pick a trend. 🙂 I’m pretty sure my boyfriend would be lost if he tried to pick out clothes for me, haha.
