This Fall look reminds of my childhood days rolling my pant legs up so I could race and play with the boys in my neighborhood. I would roll those wide leg jeans, (yes I’m a 70’s baby) or cords up in a second to race them on my bike, on foot and occasionally to hand out good ole mind changing “so you think you can beat me because I’m a girl” beating.
Then one day, when I was about ten or eleven years old, all that changed. I came home from school and my cousin who was living with us at the time, brought home a friend from school. He was the cutest thing I’d ever laid eyes on. This was the first time I worried about being pretty. I remember thinking how glad I was that I looked pretty because it was picture day at school. I’m gonna’ leave the rest of that story for another day, but let’s just say thirty years and four sons later, he still makes me glad I look pretty.
Although I have always loved all things frilly, I’ve never been a girly girl. I don’t subscribe to the wear once philosophy, I believe in building a wardrobe that serves many purposes. I am most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt. So this look is inspired by my favorite wardrobe items. A well fitting pair of jeans is a curvy girls best friend. If they are the right cut and fit it will show off her assets and camouflage her flaws. When paired with these fringe wedge heel booties, (photos cannot capture the fabulosity) and my favorite swing blazer, this look has just enough pretty to soften the tomboy without losing the comfort. I love this swing blazer because it’s comfortable and versatile. This one fits right down to my hip, so it camouflages my mutant
characteristics (the second belly) lol. The large cuffs also lends itself to the coulattes trend of this year.
Between the comfort of this look and the fit of my jeans, this look has the right amount of pretty to keep my inner tomboy feeling Pretty yet comfy!
The jeans are flared leg, which I have said before are one of my favorite fits, because it accommodates my thick thighs. (similar).
The blazer is from my closet. (similar)
The shirt is a cami of which I have a lot in every color and length.
The booties are from Ashley Stewart or (similar)
I chose sparkly jewelry because I love the ideas of what I call “pretty hard” it’s like wearing this large pave sparkly necklace with jeans and a tee. Or adding a dress over your jeans.
Bonus: Pretty Hard Look
How about paring your favorite little black dress, old faithful obi belt and the same jeans.
By wearing them long it adds a little more ‘pretty’ but their still the same comfy jeans.
Whether you are a girly girl or a pretty tomboy, have fun with your look and keep all things pretty.
