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?
