what I wore : plaid + polka dots

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

details
sweater - Modcloth (a few years back)
jeans - Skinny jeans c/o Macy's
camera bag - Jo Totes
lapel pin - Pintrill

I can't believe near the end of December this is what I'm wearing. Don't get me wrong, out on the pier it was COLD and windy - if you couldn't tell by my hair. But seriously, for this time of the year, this weather is amazing! As much as I've been sulking about it being cold, it could definitely be a lot worse. Snow has been few and far between this year. It's strange.

I think this might be my new favorite outfit, at least for now. Ya know, until next week when I have a new favorite. Hah. These are the same jeans from this post, I kind of can't get enough of them. In high school I owned a ton of different colored jeans but really had no idea how to style them. In fact I probably just wore them exclusively with Nirvana tshirts. Eventually I wrote them off as something that were hard to wear. These are my first colored pair since then and I'm having way too much fun trying them with just about everything in my closet. I really like that the color is still kind of normal, it's not too outrageous but adds a touch of fun to an outfit. Must get more colorful pants!!

On an unrelated note, I can't believe Christmas is at the end of this week. Guess who is 100% unprepared. ME. Whoops. Hope you have an awesome day, maybe one you don't spend stressing about the fact you need to shop for just about everyone still.

  4. Since now you know that we have the same pair of boots I want to ask if it keeps your feet warm long enough in the cold. I have been wearing mine for a week now I think but I'm usually indoors so I couldn't tell. Anyways would it be weird if I said I have a pair of jeans in a color pretty close to this one you have? Well I said it haha. I actually wore them today with the boots! :D

    P.S. Love the vibrant hair color!
