I haven't had a lot of time to think about clothes since this whole mess began, but I took today off work and decided one of the ways I would treat myself would be with an outfit creation session.
I bought these jeans a few months ago, but I've struggled to wear them.
My biggest issues are footwear and the cuff.
I think in a previous life I would have worn these jeans with a pointy toed boot with a bit of a heel. The sturdier shoes my feet demand haven't felt quite right.
I also haven't yet figured out the wider cuff I see many wearing. I've toyed with it here, and also with a narrower, double rolled cuff. It's what I'm more accustomed to with a skinny, but I am not sure about it on this wider leg. Will appreciate all feedback on what might work here.
- This is a bit aspirational because I'm a bit too rolly in the middle for the white tee. But I wanted something springy and simple with the yellow Docs.
- Navy striped tee and camel topper. Topper looks less pink IRL. Yellow Docs for fun.
- I pulled out a pink H&M knit top I hardly ever wear and paired it with a favourite scarf that has sadly been a bit of an orphan. I love its mix of cream, orange, yellow, pink...Makes me happy.
- I think this BR Outlet boyfriend blazer is going to need its own session. I thought it would be great with jeans, but I'm not so sure if these ones re right. Veering into frumpy territory?
- Swapped in my black Blunnies and a simple black tee to see if that would help the blazer feel a bit better.
- Long cardigan and black tee
- Green cardigan as my only pop of colour
- Imagining warmer weather, I tried a new cardigan over a closet orphan sleeveless blouse
- Orphan blouse with green cardigan. I'd wear the green cardigan every day if I could... It's so happy! Tried the narrower double roll cuff here. Thoughts?
Thanks for looking. All suggestions and constructive comments welcome!
Now all I need is somewhere to go.:-)
