Sweater: Thrifted (Anthro) — Jeans: Thrifted — Shoes: Payless — Scarf: Fab.com (Practical Impact) — Earrings: Vendor on campus — Ring: Asian Art Museum
This outfit wasn’t really doing it for me until I added the scarf. Before, it was just an uninteresting sweater and jeans, but now it’s an uninteresting sweater and jeans with a scarf!
Well, okay, the sweater can hold its own most of the time, but I wear these jeans constantly on weekends and they rarely make it into outfit photos. They’re comfortable and easy to wear, but don’t feel especially compelling to post about.
Maybe it’s the straight legs? I used to be all about flared jeans, but I can’t wear them anymore without feeling dated–which is probably just as much due to my associations with them as it is to current trends. Put on a pair of wide-leg jeans and BOOM, I’m back in high school.
So perhaps straight-leg jeans aren’t far enough away from my teenage uniform to feel interesting and stylish. Who knows? If I can’t plumb the depths of my own mind, I certainly don’t expect anyone else to. (Except maybe my therapist.)
