I typically hold out a bit longer before breaking out my denim, but after a few chilly nights, these jeans by Max Jeans felt like the perfect choice.

They are incredibly soft and very stretchy, and since I missed out on the grey denim last year, I was very happy to see these in 'limestone grey', which works now while I'm still embracing summer, and will be an equally good base for more autumnal shades when the time comes.

For sizing, I am wearing the four, though according to the size chart I would be an eight, and yes I did hem these about three inches, as I'm only 5'2" and I did not care for how they looked when cuffed.

Finding stylish, yet comfortable denim can be quite a challenge, but this pair gets my approval.

  1. Lydia you are simply gorgeous in this outfit! The peplum adds such a great shape and the denim is a great transition into fall!

  2. I love the jeans on you - the fit looks great! The top is also a perfect shade of navy and I like the unlikely pair with the grey jeans.

    Oh and that necklace. Love!

  3. I love that color and how you paired them with navy! Such a great combo :D
    And I agree, good fitting jeans are hard to find!

  4. That Peplum fits you to a tee and the gray jeans are a must have.

  5. Beautiful blue peplum top! It looks wonderful with your grey jeans. I know all about trying to find jeans the right length - not easy.


  6. Finding good jeans that fit well is tough! I'm still on the hunt for a pair of grey jeans. These look fantastic on you!

  7. I am sucker for some awesome peplum and skinny jeans! Thes look fantastic on you.

  9. These do fit you so well! I haven't pulled my jeans out yet, I'm not sure I remember how to style them, it's been so long!

  10. Gorgeous use of the grey denim! I thrifted a pair for myself right after I had Reilly--but in my "old size" as I am bound and determined to get back there someday. Hopefully grey denim won't be "out" by then.

  11. I really, really love the colour of those...and the fit looks perfect.

  14. In love with your beautiful top!!!!

  15. Ahh these look so great on you!! The denim is so perfect for the upcoming fall weather :)


  16. Amazing peplum dress!


  17. Grey jeans… i like these and had not considered how very easy to style and mix they'd be.
    Tell me something, since you were the one that inspired me to get a pair of red jeans. Do you still wear yours ? are they still trending.

  18. Beautiful look! That clutch is one of my favorite things ever - I drool every time you feature it :)

  19. You look stunning in this outfit! Loving the necklace :)

  20. Cute jeans, and I love the peplum top!

  21. Those jeans are so cute! I love the muted grey color, especially for fall. I'm also 5'2 and have a hard time cuffing my jeans. I prefer the long, lean look ;)

  22. I love the color of those jeans! It's so perfect for fall, but you made them work well for end of some with your pretty neutral accessories!

  23. Fabulous jeans Lydia and I love your peplum top with it. Nice outfit!

  24. I love your jeans. I have been wanting a pair of gray jeans but haven't found a pair that fit me just right. Jeans are definitely a fall staple.

  25. And this is why I love being able to read reviews on blog - size charts are a mine field! Even when you know your measurements, it's impossible to be sure where you'll actually fit in. I love gray denim but never think of it as particularly summery; you've definitely proven me wrong with this outfit :)

  26. Grey jeans are my favorite! Love then with the navy! Gorgeous as usual!

  29. Your gray jeans are awesome and fit you perfectly. I am loving them paired with navy. And the necklace is to die for in this particular outfit - meaning it looks very great with it.

  30. Love Max jeans..worked with them a while back and LOVED the red jeans they sent me!!! Those fit you to perfection.

  31. I'm thinking I need a pair of grey jeans for fall too! These look great on you.
