Three years ago, if you had shown me these jeans I would have scoffed at the idea of wearing them in public. Now look at me. It’s funny how perspective changes. I think it’s a combination of exposure to all sorts of insane outfits through reading style blogs and magazines non-stop, plus the experimenting I have done this year to discover what cuts flatter my frame best. Although I do still wear clothes I find more interesting than flattering from time to time, and these high-waisted pants are more acceptable trend-wise nowadays, I still don’t think I would have worn these had it not been for blogging and reading others’ blogs. I think there’s also a little bit of me liking stuff other people think is ugly, too. And humor. I think mom jeans are funny. Ugly or not, it’s the truth. I wore this. All day.
My friend Rachel from Maine sent me this awesome necklace she made, and I think it was the element that tied the outfit together. You can find her stuff at Kouklamou Designs, and she’s got lots more where this necklace came from!
