My Thursday Threads

Today’s outfit is far from my most inspired, partially because halfway through getting dressed into a REALLY cute outfit (that you will see tomorrow), I remembered that I needed to wear jeans today*.  So I fell back on something easy:

  • Black Coldwater Creek Knit Jeans
  • Black Coldwater Creek drape-front cardigan
  • Patterned Tank from Kohls (no longer available)
  • Black Josef Seibel Shoes
  • Tiffanys Bracelet (old)
  • Necklace (gift) which is hiding in the neckline of my top
  • Filligree ring (Charming Charlies)

I have to wear jeans for a fun reason actually; after work today the local animal shelter I volunteer with (Arizona Animal Welfare League, aawl.org) is doing a “stress reliever” event on campus.  We bring a bunch of puppies out to campus during finals week and let the students play with them.  It’s actually a neat event for everyone.  The puppies get some socialization, the kids get some stress relief, and the organization gets some visibility (and often new volunteers).  However it starts early enough that I needed to be able to just change into my volunteer t-shirt and go, thus the jeans.

    I like the simplicity of this look! you can’t go wrong with jeans, a pretty blouse, and a cardigan! 🙂 Thanks for linking up!

    I sound like a broken record here, but again, I think this is one of your cuter outfits too. The focus is on *you* not the clothing, if that makes sense.

    I have to admit I actually gasped in dismay at when I saw the dressing room post – do those blouson things look good on anyone, ever? OTOH, I do think you could rock the pencil skirt with some heels.

      Oh, I like this one too. I think today’s outfit came together nicely for something last minute.

      And I know about those tops; I am sure that somewhere there is a girl who can rock that look, but it ain’t me. I’m just really unclear about how she would be shaped. I mean if you put that on an hourglass shape, you lose her curves other than the sharp in at the waist.

      And I agree that I could pull off a pencil skirt, but it really didn’t feel like “me”. That doesn’t mean I’m afraid to show off my legs. I cycle hard for those calves. You’ll see tomorrow something more in keeping with my personality and style.

    What an awesome event! Love the print on your top. Some days just call for jeans.
