Jessica Simpson Jacket (thrifted)
Old Navy Tee Shirt
Levis (gift from my grandma)
Dooney and Burke Handbag (thrifted)
I wear skinny jeans far more often than I wear bootcut jeans because trying to wrap your jeans so that your chaps will zip up in not fun. (Jeggings are usually pretty comfy to ride in as well, they move well and usually don't have seams that will rub on your legs.) My grandmother who is also an advid thrifter, found these jeans, along with some awesome leather jackets, at her local thrift store in Colorado. She brought a whole box of clothes and horse related items up with her this summer and she was sweet enough to give these jeans to me. The jeans are in really good shape, I don't think they've even been worn. (And thank you so much grandma!)
This out is a redo of this outfit I wore last year. I've always been a jeans and tee shirt kind of girl but with trying to move my style out of the "teenager" zone and more into an adult look, I sort of lost my way as how to wear such a simple outfit.
Not a huge amount of changes but wow, do they make a difference. Darker wash jeans look more saturated and balanced with the utility style jacket and I swaped the fussy blouse out for a simple gray tee shirt. (You can never go wrong with a gray tee shirt, they're even better than that holy grail of all tees, the perfect white tee.) Rather than a hat, I went with a patterned scarf and some simple boots to complete the look. And look at that, I apparently dyed my hair to match my scarf. It's a good thing I don't have a purple scarf, I'm not sure I could pull off lavender hued hair.
I should mention that Ev took the photos, he was really sweet and listened to me. I had a very particular mental image of what I wanted and he did a great job of capturing that on camera. Thanks hon and I'm sorry for being so bossy.
