Tomorrow Is Cast Into The Oven

J Brand asked me if I would like a pair of their haute hues collection and silly me, I accepted. I was pleasantly surprised to put them on and not have excessive bunching around the ankles; the usual woe of short girls that can not be solved by heels alone. But really they ought to be calling these "hot hues" because I am now convinced it is sheer insanity to wear jeans even for 10 minutes in summer in Virginia (see how pink my face is in these?). Who conceptualized a pair of pants/jeans for summer? No matter the color, I don't think it suits the season. So my review is rather flawed because while they might normally be comfortable, all I could think was, "oh my goodness, I'm melting, please let me get back inside and throw on a sundress and then press my face to an A/C vent!" I am beginning to doubt the sanity of everyone I see not wearing dresses now...

  3. Such a true story! Pants are SO hot in the summer. I do quite like the color though - I wonder how these jeans would do on someone with larger thighs. Maybe I will have to find a local shop to try a pair on at...

  5. Jeans are definitely too hot to wear during the day. You could probably get away wearing them in the evening though, especially if you are going some where with AC - like the movies. =)

  6. I definitely thought you were nuts when I saw the thumbnail... glad to hear you talking sense!

    Although to be fair, I'm pretty sure those jeans would work in some climates, even in summer. The UK springs to mind...

  7. Trousers in too hot weather sounds horrible! They'd definitely do nicely in the Danish summer weather though. I love how you styled them with the graphic tee and a red bag!

  8. The colour of these is quite fantastic, I am sure they will be fab for during the run up to winter. You will be colourful and of course, not over heating as you are now in the sunshine !

  10. I agree, I am in Texas and jeans of any kind in SUMMER are craziness! The jeans look good though.

  11. Fellow short girl here (4'11" to be exact! Eek!) and boy do I know about the bunching fabric thing. Amazing that those fit so well!

    As a denim traditionalist, I'm slowly warming up to the idea of bright colored jeans. These look great and have watered the already planted seed. :)

  13. The color of those pants is great. I love your hat too!

  14. I love the color for summer, but I have to agree any fabric constricting my legs in July is too much fabric. BTW I listened to your sister's podcast (I'm located in Atlanta) and I found it really inspiring and it motivated me to start blogging again! And your voice is cute ;~)

  19. Glad to see you wearing a pair of jeans for a change. But, I can understand you, summer heat & long trousers are far away to be a good mix.Even, here with a "cold" summer (20ºC/ 70F aas average), I find difficult to wear them between June & September. Only, in cold nights.

  20. even with the heat, you still look amazing.
    lovely casual outfit.

  21. They look great on you! Maybe leave them until it gets a bit cooler though!

  24. It's so funny because I went from last summer living in Las Vegas where only stupid people wear pants during the summer (you would just burn up and sweat through them anyway), to now being in SF where there has been a grand total of like 2 summery type of days, and it was only like 80 degrees. I've been wearing so many pants, it's so sad. I need an in between weather place! I don't find it so odd that you're wearing pants like some of the others. I think this was actually a perfect way to wear them! Especially with the T!

  25. This outfit is so cute! I love the colour of the jeans and the bright bag! This would work well over here in London right now-it's not so warm for us! xx

  26. I'm from Virginia, and when I was in high school and college I was sooo self conscious about my legs. I wore jeans every day. And it was sweltering, just heinous. And while I still prefer jeans to anything else, nowadays I'm the first person to pull on some cut-offs. Too hot to worry about your legs (even though I blind people, mine are so white)

  27. I love this outfit! But HAHA yes I agree-- I wore a pair of jeans the other day for grocery shopping and all I could think was WHY DID I THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA OH GOD I'M SUFFOCATING. I never realize how much I'm used to dresses and skirts until I try to wear pants during incorrect weather.

  28. I seriously won't even consider wearing jeans until the end of October. I live in Georgia now and I used to live in Virginia so I can safely say Georgia summers are infinitely more horrible! I think it's the addition of extra humidity and the fact that we don't really get distinct seasons. I miss Virginia weather so much. The fall is perfect there. Those jeans look awesome on you, though! Maybe they'll be nicer once the weather starts cooling down!

  29. Those jeans a brilliant though.

  30. I kind of agree. I live in Florida and while it is boiling outside and a thousand percent humid, the A/C inside makes make naked legs and bare arms break out in goosebumps. I'm a sucker for summer dresses in layers 'cuz then you can brave the out of doors and the inside too!
