For my third day of torontogirl's no jeans challenge, I intended to follow karen13's idea of composing a second outfit with my olive trousers.

  • The planned result was photo #1 : olive trousers and beige t-shirt with lace trim, paired with a sky blue blazer. Accessorized with a cream lace scarf, brown booties, army green bag and citrine earrings (hard to spot on the photo). It was the first time I paired those colors together, and I really liked the result.

Then reality ensued - as illustrated with a corner of our garden in photo #2.
There was a heavy snowfall this night (unusual for our area) and the long, untucked trousers I had planned were not an option. I needed tall boots! And I have only two pants options that work with boots : horse riding breeches or my one and only pair of skinny jeans. Of course, I went for the jeans.

  • The actual outfit for today is photo #3. The situation allowed a more casual look than my usual silhouette, and I jumped at the opportunity of wearing my favourite casual item : an army green utility puffer vest. I paired it with the skinny jeans and my trusty country boots, and a black sweater over thermal underlayer. I took the army green handbag but wore no jewelry.

Now I have to negociate with myself to assess whether or not I fail the no jeans challenge today. I do wear jeans, but skinny ones rather than my usual bootcuts, and I did compose a work outfit without jeans...
