Mostly I am currently finding plain old jeans played out, especially bootcuts. And now I present to you an outfit featuring bootcut jeans.
Seriously, that's three outfits in a row with these pink pumps? Something like that. I was inspired to pair sequins and plaid after seeing a great outfit featuring both on the You Look Fab forums. I have a hard time putting together outfits with jeans, and this one is no exception. I'd like to try sequins and plaid again to see if I can improve!
This sequin tank is one of four I own, and although sequins might seem a bit much, my tanks are in frequent rotation. I think it's just an easy piece to include to punch up an outfit! This blazer is an old one I found a long time ago on Orfus Road on a trip to Toronto. We don't have Wet Seal in Canada (to my knowledge) but this blazer was mysteriously sitting alone in a giant Urban Planet outlet. I think a long string of pearls, real or fake, is an excellent item for anyone to own. They're just so versatile, and often when I can't think of what to wear with an outfit, pearls are the answer! These jeans are a remnant from my grungy undergraduate student days, but there's nothing I like better than trying to make strange old pieces found in the back of my closet work. xD
