Patched Jeans and a Burst of Red

songofstyle_patchedjeans2

When I’m not traveling, my days in L.A. are really busy since I still work as an interior designer. Sometimes it’s hard to juggle both blogging and my design job but because I’m so passionate about both, it’s so worth it for me. I always feel like I’m scrambling last minute or rushing for outfit photos though due to lack of time. Thankfully, one of the cool projects I’m working on (will share soon, i promise!) is located in downtown L.A. so I managed to shoot these photos only a few blocks away from the job site.

I used to never carry big bags, but since I have so much to carry to work, lately I’m all about the bigger bags. This one is from Schutz, and I had my sketchbook, tape measure, laptop, giant DSLR, and my other necessities in it. The bag is big, but not bulky and also not heavy which is exactly what I need. Plus, I really like the shape of the bag and the pop of red. Best of all, the bag is reversible and is two bags in one. If I’m in the mood for a tan/brown bag, all I have to do it flip the bag! So smart!

Should we also talk about how major these jeans are? I don’t know where to start.. From the patchworks to the strategically placed zippers, to the cuffed hem on the bottom of the jeans, there isn’t one thing I don’t like. Also because there are so many different colors in the patches, I can easily match the colors and wear different colored tops.

  45. how cool are those jeans! x

  46. Qué pantalones tan bonitos! Nos han encantado!!!!

    Son originales y diferentes, eso sí, nos puede servir de idea para customizar los nuestros!!

    El rojo de los tacones y del bolso combinan genial con el estilo final del outfit. La tendencia tartán viene pisando fuerte y la combinación en negro no está tan vista! ;)

    Un beso desde el equipo de Villarrazo y feliz fin de semana!

  47. I love this look! It’s such a dilemma. Big bags tend to get heavy because you can fit so many things in them but smaller bags just aren’t big enough sometimes. It’s when the bag itself isn’t too heavy in those situations =)

    I follow your blog and love seeing it every time, you are beautiful and do a great job! I would like to possibly purchase the Schutz Mary triangle bag you carried in this photo shoot but the website does not allow you to click on that specific bag or to find out how much it is in US$? I love the two color flip it inside out! Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
