Turning Heads #Linkup: Denim Trend Look 1- Kick Crops and New Jacquard Colorful Block Heels



Hello Ladies,.. Ive some trying times lately with muscle pain in my shoulders and arms and  hands with joint pain.. Not great for a blogger who likes to write! I need to let you all know something. I try to visit mostly everyone on linkup day: I do have to take breaks and it does take me about 4 + days to comment on everyone ; I love seeing your outfits and reading your posts.   I would love to visit you more during the week , on your blogs, just letting you all know! If anyone has suggestions…


Today, however,  I am sharing with you an outfit I have wanted to put together for a bit. I know you are not used to seeing me in jeans, but I couldn’t resist the kick cropped style. I have seen it on many bloggers and love the raw edge and style, especially with a heel. I think the block  heel is the way to go for me, as with the pointed top and a bit of height, lengthens the leg, and gives me stability. Not that I will be able to walk around long in these, but when we go to eat, winebar, symphony etc, these will be great.  I also love a block heeled ankle boot with this style jean.  Soon, on the blog, I hope to do a series of posts on Denim trends for Fall and how I style each pair. I also will be sharing transitional outfits for Fall. ( several looks in one week)


I love the raw edge cut on these jeans! Seems waiting was a good thing, as I found these kick crops on H&M for $13.  I  have bought a few items for Fall, but it is a bit premature here, as I mentioned, the heat. So, I stuck with some basics and things I knew I wanted to add to my closet. ie. a few more pairs of denim, moto jackets and several pairs of shoes.  Speaking of shoes, these 1.5 inch green purple, and rose floral jacquard block heels caught my eye! I am a big fan of ASOS, and these were staring right back at me, waiting for me to hi” place order”.



This colorful floral necklace is from Zara, got it from hubby for my Bday! Green tank blouse from The Limited.



One of my favorite mesh metal bracelets C/0 Chaos NY, Clutch by Treesje, watch c/o Obaku Denmark


Bit of that green color in my earrings -played up in the block heels.


I love an all white look for summer, and neutrals, however, today I was due for some bright colors!

    You look fabulous in those jeans! I love your beautiful emerald green top – I thought the necklace was part of it at first. I’m looking for one in that exact colour but can’t find one anywhere that’s fitted but isn’t a plain, basic vest. Your shoes are stunning…I’ve been so inspired by your Asos shoes purchases that I had to make a cheeky little shoe order myself 😉

    So sorry about your pains Jess, taking care of yourself is the most important thing. Just do the best that you can and that’s all anyone can ask of you. Hope you feel better soon.
    On a lighter note, you look fab in those jeans and that green is your color. Looks amazing on you with your beautiful hair.

    So sorry to hear about the pain you’ve been in, Jess! Looking at these beautiful photos you would never know it. You look stunning! I love that you’ve tried the cropped, frayed-hem denim look! It’s a fun change to see you in jeans and looks so fresh and modern on you! The beautiful green top with that fabulous necklace compliments your coloring perfectly and those shoes!!! Love!

    I have several pair of the cropped, frayed-hem jeans and have been wearing them a lot this summer. I love that they look equally great with flats, a heeled sandal or sneakers. As I said above this style just feel fresh and modern right now.

    Hope your pain eases soon. Take good care! xox-M

    Gorgeous shoes! So fun to see you in these denim kick cropped jeans. They look fab with green top and your birthday necklace is very pretty. It is extremely difficult to find the time to answer comments, visit all link-up posts and plan/do actual blog content. I’ve been drowning in this department myself lately. 🙁

    First, I have to say I love all your looks, but for some reason this one really floats my boat!! The shoes just sing to me and that necklace. Maybe also because I’ve been loving green lately—it’s so fresh & bright!!
    I was thinking about your conundrum with the muscle issues—-and I’ve come up with the solution: you need an assistant!! Either that or cloning? Sounds far fetched, but maybe you could “train” a young high schooler who want to know more about blogging? Just a thought…

      Thank you Jodie! Glad you like the look. I want to do a sereis on different jean styles for fall. I have a large collection of jeans, even though I have not worn them alot on the blog. I hope to change that for fall. So true! Assistant, I could dictate, they type! thanks for the idea 🙂 xx
