If I Was Your Boyfriend

Happy weekend, everyone! Here’s a little something I put together to wear to class earlier this week. These boyfriend jeans were my repeat item (it’s the end of week 3 of the remix challenge…craziness).

I’m pretty excited about these jeans. Why? Oh good, I’m glad you asked. Well, I’ve always been a fan of the cuffed baggy jean look on girls…in theory. But I was skeptical of trying it myself due to my – shall we say – efficient size. Thanks to the Olsen twins, we’ve all seen what few favors baggy clothes lend to a tiny person, and I’m not rich enough to pull off the homeless look like MK and Ashley.

Anyway, I happened to go in New York & Company the other day and saw they had these jeans called “slim slouch.”  At first I thought that was a ridiculous name, because how can jeans be slim and slouchy at the same time? Well, it turns out…like this. They really are slim and slouchy, and I love them! Super comfortable too. I don’t shop at NY & Co. often, but I might have to start buying more jeans there! My pant-fitting challenge (we all have one, right?) is that my hips are quite a bit wider than my waist, so I always get that big gap in the back of the waist band – handy for storing snacks but otherwise annoying. If you have that problem too, you should try NY & Co. (and let me know if there’s another store I should be trying)!

Use Your Imagination…

aztec4Remember that time I announced my love for geometric Aztec/Southwestern prints? I saw this sweater at Urban shortly after and it became my new favorite. Lucky for me, Santa checks my Pinterest boards and he left it under the tree for me. Santa’s awesome like that.

I actually wore this outfit on vacation the day we visited Asheville, NC, and my parents and sister drove over to meet us for the day. We were so busy gallery hopping, eating, and checking out the winners of the national gingerbread competition, that I forgot to take photos before the sun went down! But I loved the outfit so much I recreated it back home in Indy for some pictures. Just pretend the snow’s not there and imagine some hippies in the background.

I’m Intrigued…

South by SouthwestI don’t know where this whole Aztec and Southwestern print trend came from, but I’m kind of diggin’ it. I have yet to add any of this geometric fun to my closet, but these are a few things I’m eyeing. The BB Dakota sweater (No. 4) is my favorite. Personally, I wouldn’t go head-to-toe Aztec, but some of these items might be fun to throw into my polka-dot-and-animal-print-heavy wardrobe. Gotta try new things sometimes, right? Right, Sarah. You’re always right.
