Ok, I’ll admit. This outfit might seem a bit out there. I was rummaging through my closet looking for something, and came upon this jacket that I thrifted about 2 years ago for…$3.50!!!! I mean, what the what!?! WHY don’t I wear this more often? It’s not only fun, but it’s ridiculously warm. Almost too much so on this day. And, it just adds such a fun element to a fairly simple outfit. Oh, and I got a compliment on it from a pretty hip mom while we were playing, so…there’s that! 🙂
All that to say. I keep forgetting about this jacket/thinking it’s too dressy and out there for me to wear more often, but then…why not?!! Why don’t we wear things that make us feel fun more often? I’ll be honest. I felt too self conscious to wear it to pre-school pick up, but WHY??? I think I might get my nerve up to do it later…maybe. 🙂 Life’s too short not to wear things that we WANT to wear because we are afraid of what other’s might think! Ok…AND these jeans are actually from my favorite denim maker DL1961. Their 4 way stretch is any mama’s dream. Ok, it’s anyone’s dream. I’m wearing them in almost half my posts! They were having a ridiculous sale (extra 25% off sale price!), so I thought I’d introduce the Huz to a pair. Then…realized that Maya was outgrowing the pairs that she has, so…I bought a new size up for her. THEN, I realized that I could save $10 in shipping if I bought something else (am I the only one that does this??). Um…SOOOOO I took a chance and bought a pair of size 16 girls jeans for a steal. I’ve bought a few kids jeans from thrift stores in the past, and LOVED THEM!!! In my experience size 14-16 usually equals a 26-27 in women’s sizes, yet they are a FRACTION of the cost. Oh, and they are usually a higher rise, and a lower inseam (my legs are ridiculously short for my frame!) All that is a win for me! And, for anyone who is a size 27 or below! ESPECIALLY for those that are petite! I feel like they have to get so frustrated, and can only hope that most have thought to shop in the girls section without being embarrassed!! I say shop wherever you can find things that fit and make you feel good! And then, she was off…. 🙂 We’ve been so lucky getting blue sky breaks lately!!
Love that jacket on you!! You should wear it more often! And yes, wear what makes you feel good. I’ve purchased some hot pink dresses and am too scared to wear out but I will do it once spring comes around. Happy Monday, Lauren!
Thanks Leyla! And I know!! There are so many things that just sit in my closet, because I think… “Really, I should be wearing comfy jeans/shoes and a simple top right now, because I’m not really going anywhere/doing anything. Everyone will wonder why I’m dressed up!” Well, really, who cares. Why can’t the answer just be, “Because I want to feel GOOD!” I’m going to try and say that more often. And I cannot wait to see you in the hot pink dresses! WOO HOO!! xx Lauren
You look great, I really love those shoes! they look like some Swedish hasbeens shoes I’ve been dying to own
Thank you! They are very similar! They are from Sven. These particular ones have a bendable base, and are RIDICULOUSLY comfortable!!! I love all clogs, but the bendable base option takes them to a whole new level! I think they offer it on a lot of their clogs too! SO many fun styles! 🙂 xx
