We don't get much of a winter here in Texas, which makes me crave spring clothes way before the season actually starts. These colored jeans are totally a spring color. I dyed them by hand using Rit royal blue liquid dye. They didn't exactly turn out royal blue, but I really like the periwinkle shade. I feel like I'll get a lot of use out of them come spring, but why wait! While the weather is starting to warm up, I've already started to get some use out of them.
