“No one will see how clumsy I am”

Last weekend, I was fighting off the beginning of a cold.  I wanted to stay in pajamas all day, but the fridge was pretty bare, so I had to make myself presentable to head out to the grocery store.  I didn’t blow-dry my hair this day, so it was kind of doing whatever it felt like.  I tied it up in a scarf and threw together a comfy outfit that would still let me feel chic.

The most important aspect of this outfit for me is my newly cropped skinny jeans.  I altered these jeans awhile back into long skinnies, but I found that I was often cuffing them, and that the silhouette wasn’t very flattering uncuffed.  I also found myself being more and more drawn to cropped ankle skinny jeans and trousers.  I decided it made more sense to alter what I already had than to go out and buy something new, and now I love these jeans so much more.  Hemming those few inches has made them so much more flattering on me.  I’ll be wearing them a lot more often now.

I didn’t realize until later that this ended up being an all neutral ensemble.  This is pretty unusual for me, because I usually love to have lots of color in my outfits.  I wonder if it was some sort of reflection on how I wasn’t exactly feeling up to par this day?

  2. I am very impressed with the ankle skimming skinny jeans!. I bought a straight leg pair last summer that are actully a bit too long. I tried turning up the cuffs but I thought that made me look short. So my jeans may soon look more like your jeans…

    I really enjoyed the seven random things about you. You did such a great job on your jeans and even though your outfit is neutral I really like it! Love the scarf as a headband.

    LOVE the neutral outfit (I’m partial to them myself), and the scarf is so cute on you!

    Also, I have contemplated wearing my dansko mary janes with cropped skinny jeans, but never tried it. This post has convinced me to try it soon! So cute!
