I had to rush off for a meeting this morning and didn’t get a chance to blow dry my hair. It shows, particularly in the full length picture. Definitely a bad hair day. The pictures were also pretty fast, which is part of why I’m a little crooked. (It was actually the camera that was crooked, but…)
- Black Michael Kors Boyfriend Cardigan (Marshall’s)
- Black tee (Lane Bryant)
- Purple slim-leg “jeans” (Coldwater Creek)
- Scarf (Marshalls)
- Naot Retro shoes (Zappos)
I’m coming to the conclusion that the word “jeans” on the coldwater creek site is used quite loosely. These are a nice, khaki-weight stretch denim with no visible stitching; that means the jeans aspect is primarily in the pocket design, which isn’t really visible most of the time. For that reason, I wear them to work all the time. What I love about this particular design (and plan to go back to the site for pairs in at least 2 other colors) is that the light-weight will make them completely appropriate going into spring and summer.
I’m still not entirely sold on the skinny leg jeans, but it is hard right now to find wide legs and I am finding that certain silhouettes look better right now with a slim leg. Not all of them, but some looks. I think part of it is that I’ve become accustomed to that look; I see it all the time, both on blogs and on campus, so now it is less painfully obvious. I do think that it looks better if the pants aren’t skin tight, though. When I’m walking these actually have a little room in the thigh and I think that makes the whole thing look better.
I’m off this afternoon to go to a routine doctor’s appointment and then shopping at a particular marshall’s which is way away from my house but always has the best stuff in town, so keep your fingers crossed and send good shopping thoughts!
