Back in my old spot for today's pictures, and I'm not a huge fan. I couldn't use the living room and it was freeeezing outside so this was my only option!!
Yesterday I wrote about my new style challenge: a week of wearing jeans. Unlike a lot of people, I almost never wear jeans. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know I'm a real dresses and skirts girl, occasionally extending to shorts or leggings. So when I wore jeans for an outfit post last week, it was suggested that I only wore jeans for a week. This is a real challenge for me. Even today, day one, I found it strange to get used to wearing and styling jeans. I don't have a huge collection of tops and shirts- I usually rely on skirts and dresses to bulk out my wardrobe. It was strange to actually wear jeans too. Today was a bitterly, bitterly cold day in Duluth and I really felt it even through the denim. Plus I felt really, really casual. I always describe myself as perpetually over-dressed but today I felt, well, regularly dressed. Finally, I really, really love these jeans because they fit really well without the looseness of jeans that have been washed too many times, but they are also super-tight, the way skinny jeans should be.
This outfit came to me before I went to bed last night, but it didn't quite turn out as I expected. This scarf is awkward. I wore it wrapped around my neck for most of the day but it's so thick and chunky that it doesn't really go around right. I tried it loose for these pictures but I hate wearing a scarf and being able to see my skin underneath!! This top is massively too big, which doesn't help either. I do adore this scarf though, I just need to find a way to wear it. Does anyone have any great scarf-tying techniques?!
I've worn the combination of this top and cardigan a couple of times together, I really like mixing up mustard yellow and bright blue. Especially as this is one of the few tops I have that isn't just a simple tank top. I was going to wear my black jeans today, but I thought I'd be brave and wear my blue denim ones. I was asked today why I only wear skinny jeans, well, seeing as I don't really wear jeans I don't really feel the need to own a variety of styles I find skinny jeans most versatile and aside from a cropped jeans, they're really the only style I like.
jeans- new look
blue top- topshop
scarf- forever 21
Not much to report today really. I went to my friends' house yesterday to watch the Superbowl, which was a lot of fun. Then today I have just been to class and done homework and the usual boring things. I have a midterm on Friday!! How is that mid-term?! I'm sulky because I normally see my boyfriend on Monday nights but he's still away until Wednesday!! Think it's going to be a night in with my books and a mug of hot chocolate!!
What do you think of Day One of the jeans challenge? Any advice for the rest of the week? See you tomorrow for more denim fun :]]
