Get the Look: Winter to Spring with Camo Flower Jeans

Share Button

I am styling a pair of camo flower jeans as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I purchased the camo flower jeans from Sears to highlight how to get the look to transition from winter to spring.

Once again I have been been completely surprised by fashion. Something I thought I most likely couldn’t (or wouldn’t) wear ever has turned out to be an amazing look!

I’ve seen camouflage or camo pants everywhere — it took me a while to warm up to them, but even then I hadn’t actually “approached” them. I kept playing around with ideas on how to wear them and how I could get the look in my head, but had not taken the initiative to get out there and try them on.

However, my motto on this blog and in my life has always been to TRY IT ON before passing on it.

Sears had a variety of colored and printed denim — more than I expected really. Then my eyes landed on what what was a mix of flowers and…hold on…CAMO!

I believe these jeans were made for me. They were not the traditional camo pants I have been seeing everywhere and the burgundy and dark brown flowers add a touch of femininity and give it a spring time feel.

My mind immediately began formulating different outfits, especially to transition from winter to spring and rock the camo look I had been admiring and slightly fearing from afar.

The best way to wear camo flower jeans the rest of the winter and then in the spring is to start from the bottom up.

Start with the shoes. In this case, I added a pair of suede booties with a low heel, a blue button down shirt and a blue sweater poncho — which are both part of my mamá uniform. I took my everyday basics and turned them up a few notches.

To complete the look, I applied a blood orange lipstick which is a spin off of the traditional red and perfect for a fresh end of winter beginning of spring look.

The outfit was a hit at my son’s 5th birthday party — my mother looked down at my jeans and said “¿Son pantanlones estilo militar?/are those military style pants?” Giggling a little because she wasn’t sure what she was looking at.

It was actually quite funny, she didn’t know the word for camo and never thought I’d be wearing them. Eventually after checking them out a while longer she said “Se ven bien. Me gustan las flores/They look good. I like the flowers.”

This was my favorite look, but I have styled the camo flower jeans in a variety of ways. Mostly with boots since it is cold, and the button down shirt.

Once it gets warmer tuck the jeans under (if they are too long) to cut off right at the ankles, wear flats or moccasins and a loose grey or blue blouse under a leather or jeanjacket or blazer.

You can double layer if you want and go for the leather and jeanjacket together!

As for us mamas, wear the jeans like any  other — don’t be scared. Like I said, I teamed it up with my comfy button down shirt and poncho that I’ve had for ages!

If you look closely, there may even be a milk or snot stain somewhere. That’s just life!  No need to run out and shop for new pieces, just play around with what you have and look fabulous at home, at the playground, at a playdate or for date night!

As I mentioned earlier, your makeup needs to transition as well — I’m personally liking the blood orange look. The one I’m wearing is Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss number 12. It’s a fresh and vibrant color and a bargain too — only $5!

      ¡Gracias Carla! Espero que estes bien — cuanto te falta??

  • DC Celine

    I’ve been eyeing camo skinnies every time I’m in a store, but, like you, hadn’t gotten around to trying them out. This is exactly how I’d want to wear them. The mix is dressed up, modern casual, and I love it! Love the lipstick, too (wore mine today in the snow!)

    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      I’ve been checking them out for a while, but figured, I’ll pass on this one. But when I saw the flower mix at Sears I thought they were made for this mama!

  • http://www.amotherthing.com/ Katie @ A Mother Thing

    Those are seriously adorable! I can think of so many ways to wear them!!

    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      Thanks Katie! Right now it’s all boots for me as we have snow and it’s cold, but come spring, cute flats or sandals. Hope you and are well! :)

  • Magdalena Wiewiora-Cox

    Not my style but I like how they look on you!

    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      Thank you! I was scared, but the flowers made it seem less harsh :)

  • we3ramirez

    I never would have guessed Sears…so fun! Makes me think I might be brave enough to try printed pants!

  • Sandra McKinney Rivas

    I am not a camo person at all, but I think the flowers make this look much more feminine. I love the way they look with the sweater. I do have a pair of printed paisley jeans that I finally felt brave enough to wear last year. I will definitely be investing in more printed jeans. They’re such fun!

  • Mariana Azuero

    You look great! I haven’t tried printed pants yet. Might in the future :)

  • Paola Romero

    I like your style!! Nice!!

  • Nicole Elliott

    I picked some floral print denim up from Sears and I loved it but I missed these ones! They’re wild but you’re right that on they’re super cute! I would have never thought to pair them with blue on top but it all balances out quite nicely, too funny about your mom too :) #client
