Several weeks ago I took a shopping trip to Avenue and tried their new Butter Denim line in a few colors. One that really stood out to me was the beautiful teal hue. This rich blue-green tone is perfect for when I want to have the relaxed feel of a jean and break away from the expected blue denim. Fall is a time for me to wear jewel tones like this. Not only are these jeans a great color, they are super soft and stretchy without being too clingy. I am wearing the skinny version in a size 18 of the Butter Denim. They also are available in straight leg and select colors in bootcut. The texture of the denim is quite different from regular jeans being that they are much smoother. The interior of them are almost suede like. They have a zipper and button closure with belt loops like most jeans, having faux pockets in the front prevents extra bulk in the tummy area. They do have real pockets in the back though. For some reason the pair I tried on in store seemed to have a shorter rise and shorter inseam as I am wearing these up close to where my stretch belt lands and rolled them up two times. I am short waisted so this is typical for most fit in pants.To complete my new fall outfit, I chose a patterned top that has a bit of the teal color in it. Over the top I layered this chunky knit cardigan. To complete the look, I added a stretch belt under the bust to give some shape, a fun fringe handbag, a no-heel taupe bootie, and simple initial necklace. (FYI-this necklace is a perfect gift for the holidays!)Ray and I took our lunch down by the harbor and took in the sights of all the boats. It was super windy otherwise I would have been sporting my floppy hat. I am glad I didn’t because I think it would have flown off into the water.I want to give a big thanks to Avenue for gifting me these fabulous jeans that will be getting a lot of use this fall and winter. I am thinking next time I will wear it with a wine sweater and knee boots. And for another look, a black & white cardigan, gray tank, and heeled booties (when my hip gets better).
