Feb 9th, Just Jeans and a Sweater

 After wearing a dress yesterday, 
today I’ve decided to go with jeans. If you are regular reader you’ll know I’m a huge fan of jeans- especially my skinny jeans- but sometimes I want something a little looser.

Introducing the ‘sort of’ skinny jeans.

These are similar to my Madewell Skinnys, but not quite as tight. They are a perfect alternative to anyone who is not ready for the super tight skinnys. The straight leg is still slimming, but they don’t look painted on. Since my sweater doesn’t cover my bum- this is important!

I’ve paired them with a simple brown sweater. On the right I have on mom jeans and a buttoned up cardigan and tennis shoes. This look just sort of seems blah. I wouldn’t look twice at me!

On the left I’ve re-worked it by switching out the matronly cardigan for this cute sweater with these fun sleeves and detailed pattern. I’ve also added a necklace and replaced the tennis shoes with these cute leopard flats.

My goal isn’t too look like I just came off the runway, my goal is to look like someone who has put a little effort into her look- and I think this does.

This sweater is much more interesting than the boring cardigan.

By the way, I’ve started a Facebook page, if you’re interested, click here!

Nov 2nd, What I Wore Wednesday

I’m linking up with both What I Wore Wednesday and Work it Wednesday– so if you have time, be sure to check out these other great sites.

Today I am showing my denim skirt worn 3 ways. Speaking of 3- I’ve mentioned this before but I like following the rule of 3. By this I mean I try to always have 3 items in the upper half of my outfit.

In my first look I’ve paired it with a black t shirt, silver necklace and my furry vest, affectionately named ‘the dog’ as seen here. I like this look because it’s edgy, yet doesn’t seem to far out of my comfort zone.

On the right is my next look- where I’ve paired the skirt with this brown sweater. To follow the rule of 3 I have a tank under the sweater and a necklace. This sweater has a lot of interest because of the pattern down the middle and the sleeves. Paired with brown boots- it’s a classic and safe outfit.

Lastly I’m showing a weekend look. I’ve paired it with a long sleeve pink t shirt over a white tank and then layered my white vest over for warmth. I’m wearing casual tennis like shoes- perfect for running errands or standing on the sidelines.

This skirt is a good alternative to jeans.
Love my dog!!
This sweater would look cute belted too.
