With all my attempts to be taken seriously in the business world and attempt to not get asked for my hall pass in the teaching world- I think sometimes I'm missing out on the fact that I'm still pretty young and rarely dress like a 20 something. Some Friday nights I go on dates and think, ya, so dressing my age! I enjoy these rare moments

Everyone has raved how they loved their boyfriend jeans after trying...amen! It took me a while to find a pair perfect for my figure..but I've been a fan and had to remind myself to wear other pants since this purchase!
Jeans: Aeropostale (who would have thought) $20, Shirt: H&M $30, Shoes: Target, $13, Belt: Thrifted, $3, Sweater: NY&Co, $15, Flower: Anchor Blue, $1
I don't know if you knew this, but I'm a cheapskate! I resent paying more than $30 for anything....but then something happened. I have a weird body- there I said it. I'm super petitite and super curvy at the same time. I have abnormally huge thighs, and an abnormally small waist....I'm just saying jeans and I have to compromise. The usually hurt my thighs if they don't fall off up top and visa versa! However, picking up the running this year has shaped the thighs slightly...so I decided it was time for a splurge! I wanted some jeans that fit pretty darn well, and decided I was willing to add an extra 0 to the amount I usually pay...uh...that's in the back of the 30. Imagine my joy to find my perfect pair- still a splurge- but for only $100! Thank you Miss Me for making jeans that stretch a little in the butt and thighs in case you have some curves. Thank you teenage stylist for convincing me that a little bling is fine and that I didn't look like a student. Afternote: She lied, between the jeans and a Hollister T I've never been asked for my hall pass by collegues so much in my life!
SOOOO- usually I'll tell you to invest in a CD, usually I'll say thrift if you're a shopaholic- usually I'll put my outfits in that under 50 category (----> over there----->).
BUT for this item only- GO SPLURGE! My thighs have never looked so normal! My butt has never looked so good. Yes, I hate my lower middle, but not in these babies!
Jeans: Miss Me, $100, Shoes: Last Chance, Shirt: Hollister, I-Feel-Hot-In-Jeans-Attitude: worth every penny!

Do you know why I like fashion blogging? Lots of reasons- but here's the main one I sometimes forget about: sometimes I have days were I think an outfit is totally working, take a pic, and realize that a certain shape or color is so blah on me. Sometimes I have days when I walk out the door thinking things like "Can one really put bright orange, muted gray, and cobalt blue together and still look professional? Not to mention does this even work on my frame? Is this boho or business or quirky? Can you do biz/quirky/boho blends? Are students going to stare at this? Will my business cohorts think less of me for wearing something so bright and out of the box?" I didn't love this outfit until I uploaded pics, just like I like many until I see how they just don't work (I try not to post those unless I'm desperate!)
That is the reason I do this, love comments as I do, love the social aspect of so many cool fashionistas out there- I love finding what works, what doesn't, and whether risks or new ideas were something to try again:)
Any amens out there?
