While they are quite comfortable, these jeans are perhaps not my most flattering pair. They are supposed to be boyfriend jeans but boyfriends don't usually have my shape so they are just baggy in some places and tight in others. They are probably not doing me any favours but they aren't horrendous either. They were not at all expensive and I should maybe not hang onto them but they are so comfortable and soft. Maybe I should just not go out in them. They are loose in the thigh but tight in the calf, which I suspect is largely due to them being meant for someone shorter and so the leg opening would be closer to the ankle. On me they are attempting to be clam diggers. Maybe clam diggers are okay. I have two pairs of them. Keep, donate, only wear around the house-your thoughts?
Today I wore another super soft item, my military inspired jacket which is much silkier than any real military clothes would be. I really wanted to wear the jacket with a skirt or dress but couldn't get my act together and get out the door in time. I love the little white sweater, the jacket and my purple scarf, but the jeans, I am not sure about. I think I like all the individual pieces more than the ensemble. And using fancy words like ensemble don't make it look any better.
Someone (I cannot remember who so if it was you, do step forward and take credit) left a comment on a blog once saying it is nice sometimes to see someone's mistakes or mediocre outfits and not always the stuff that worked best. Perhaps there is some value in going through the thought process with someone else to see why they rejected an outfit. I have lots of rejects. This could be my specialty. I could be the blog representative of What Not To Wear!
My shoes always look darker than they actually are in the photos. These shoes are a sort of taupe/brown with a bit of a purple undertone, not the dark brown or black they look here.
