The devil is in the details
Mmm, don't really like this outfit. This coral top looks great tucked into a skirt or shorts, but with jeans it makes me look like a large, human tent. Which is not a good look. I am definitely not the right shape to pull of loose, baggy layers. Unfortunately, it was boiling here today and (still!!) bruised knees and limited 30 for 30 options had me stuck in a bit of a rut. These cropped jeans are the only thing in my arsenal that cover my knees without needing tights, and I needed a lightweight top to avoid over-heating. I thought about tucking it in like in this post, but it just looked weird. But hey, it kept me cool, if huge-looking all day!!

I've mentioned before my total inability to wear jeans and today was no exception. I just don't really suit jeans. It's not even about jeans being casual or not my style- I just can't really pull them off!! I see so many girls looking fabulous in jeans and I wish I could look good in them, but they just cling to my thighs (not my favourite body part) and generally make me look a lot more bottom-heavy than I would like. Maybe I haven't found the right pair yet? Who knows. I am much more comfortable, and feel much better in a skirt or a dress, or even shorts. However, Erick loved it when I did my jeans challenge back in February. He loves me in jeans because he likes me to look a little more casual. When I told him about the woman who let her boyfriend dress her for a week his response was "I'd probably just have you in a bikini. Or sweatpants and a hoodie." Men, eh?
Today has been pretty boring. I went for a walk to a vintage shop that's just opened. Half an hour later, I find out it's closed on a Monday. Damn. So I walk all the way home. The hat here was actually as much about protecting myself from the heat as an accessory. However, I have big stupid headphones so I had to keep balancing it on my head over them!! I spent the afternoon getting some articles finished and taking pictures. Yep, my life is dead exciting. But hey, I'm happy :]]
Have a great Monday!!
