Our 16-year-old has been asking for forever when I’m going to collaborate with True Religion jeans and I always told him probably never because everyone knows True Religion is for rappers. It’s a great look for 2 Chains, but their marketing team probably isn’t looking for a 40+ hippie mom of two.And then, lo and behold, True Religion called (emailed actually). They were doling out denim to a few lucky bloggers, whad’ya know. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that the brand’s offerings were much broader than I had given them credit for. Next thing I knew, the whole family (sans husband, who would not be convinced) was decked out in True Religion. How unexpected.Here we are, frolicking in our jeans in our overgrown backyard. Even my off-shoulder top is by the brand, and I like that it can be worn tucked in or out. The jeans (sold out, similar here) also have some versatility in that you can wear them pulled up for a higher waist, or more relaxed around the hips for a slouchy boyfriend look. And aren’t the multicolored buttons, embroidery and raw hem of Frida’s dress adorable? Below, she is torturing playing with a rolly polly bug, wary of anyone trying to confiscate it. WEARING: Shoes: Freda Salvador; necklace: Sheila B; belt is vintage, similar here and here; bracelet is from Susquehanna Trading Post; rings are from Blake Trading Company in Estes Park, CO.
