Toothpick ankle jeans in garment dyed twill + chambray + bubble

Linen-cotton chambray shirt: Banana Republic, summer 2012
Toothpick ankle jean in garment dyed twill:  J.Crew, summer 2012, other colors here
Bubble necklace in kelly green:  J.Crew, here
Cece ballet flat in tortoise:  J.Crew, summer 2012

I was super excited when I ordered this green jeans on popback for $49.99 (these are a 28 Tall for reference) a couple months ago.  But when I received them and tried them on, the first thing I thought was that I looked just like Will Ferrell in Elf.  All I could see were really long, green elf legs.  So I folded them and put them in my jeans stack, unsure if I'd ever wear them, and unable to return them as they were final sale.  But when when I went to Old Navy the other day to pick up some clothes for my boys, one of their ads featured a woman wearing green jeans and a chambray shirt.  It looked so fresh and preppy that I immediately decided to copy the look.  I wore this for a casual dinner out with friends and kids last night, and I loved how it turned out, elf legs and all.  It's like I had to build up my bravery to wear them, and now I love them!

Tell me, do you ever have to work up courage to wear a bold clothing item in your closet?
Thank for visiting!
