Cheating on my skinnies…


90% of the time I wear skinny jeans.

a) Because it feels like I’m wearing sweats (if you get ones that have stretch, which all of mine do!)

b) The inseam on them is usually more conducive to my shorter legs, or they look ok scrunched at the bottom or rolled!  Which all boils down to NO HEMMING!

c)  I can wear them with flip flops, flats, or boots (aka any season!)

All that said.  I love the look of a wide leg jean.  I’m really into the super wide leg, but found these mid rise (thought I’d NEVER go back there!) wide leg jeans from Citizens of Humanity at a thrift store ($7!) and figured I’d try them!1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-1

Not sure if it was the same trip, but I scored these Jeffrey Campbell wedges at the thrift store too (less than $10)!  If I ever put on a heel (for non going out day wear), it’s going to be a wedge.  Not sure why, but they are just so much more comfortable.1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-2  This top is just a glorified T (yup, still staying true to my jeans and t-shirt uniform!)1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-3

Then to dress it up a little for maybe a date night or client meeting (if you have a little more casual work place environment)…add a cropped leather jacket and another pair of leather wedges!1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-41Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-6 I know that nobody will really see it, but I’m a sucker for cool lining 🙂 1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-5blogCUHWideLegCremeTop-61Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-8 1Blog CUHWideLegCremeTop-9Maya cheated on her skinnies too 🙂1Maya100wksOveralls-1On me…
