On Sunday I went to an Oscars party. I always watch the Oscars, but I’m pretty sure it was the first time in my life I’ve left my house to do so. It’s kind of like the first Christmas you spend away from home…You’re nervous it won’t be quite the same, but it still turns out to be fun. Because it’s Christmas. I mean the Oscars. Anywho.
My goal with this outfit was to be equal parts “it’s a special occasion” and “I’m going to sit on a couch eating junk food and judging people.” Sounds like a good occasion for the faux leather leggings, doesn’t it? I thought so. And because I’m still doing the Take One remix, I repeated this necklace from the day before.
Speaking of the Oscars, did anyone else notice a glaring lack of necklaces and lipstick on the red carpet? It was all bare sternums and bare lips. If you looked at the pictures above (and 90% of the pictures I’ve ever posted on this blog), you can probably guess how I feel about that. Lame.

These photos were taken at Holliday Park in Indianapolis.
When I was in middle and high school, nobody wore cropped pants. It was either capris right under the knee (what were we thinking?) or flared pants that were at least an inch too long. Anything else, and you were wearing “highwaters” and basically committing social suicide.
Times have changed and I’m so glad, because I love the cut of these pants! And I can continue loving them because the bottoms of them won’t get torn up and dirty from dragging the ground.
So…how many years do you think it will be until these are highwaters again? Be sure the let me know because I don’t want the kids at school to tease me.

Yes, you just saw this vest a couple days ago. I don’t care. I’m not trying to impress you. But I mean…I really hope you like me or whatever.
I’m always looking for oversized sweaters appropriate for wearing with leggings (as leggings are not pants and therefore your crotch should be covered), and then I end up being less than enthused about how the oversized sweater looks so oversized and sweatery. In the past, I’ve added belts or chunky necklaces to add some visual interest, and now I can add this vest to my list of things to offset my big sweater. That’s right: I’m using sweater #2 to offset the sweateriness of sweater #1. You never know what amazing things you will learn when you visit me, huh?
