Posing Like I Mean It

Today I decided to see if I could pull off looking sophisticated in these super casual-feeling jeans.  Did I pull it off? Not sure.  I still can’t shake the feeling that I’m late to class whenever I wear flared-leg jeans. Too nostalgic. Guess I’m gonna have to make new, more sophisticated memories in these jeans. Maybe I will make a business deal or sell something while I wear these. Then everything will change!

Well, I gotta go now because the cameraman just got a “Humpty Dance” record today that has the song remixed four different ways. I’m trying to teach Penny how to dance. Or at least watch while I dance. So far the results have been mixed. 

Blazer: theory, Blouse: Zara, Jeans: UO, Shoes: Clark’s, Socks: UniQlo, Earrings: Kendra Scott

    I think the blazer and the jacket really do dress the jeans up. 😀

    I'm not one for jeans, but you look incredible! I think you would be able to rock the highwaisted jeans as well. :)

    Wait, flared jeans are out? Boot cut? I can't do skinny jeans. You're more dressed up than lots of my co-workers. I like your sheer top. And, red shoes are always a nice touch.

    great blazer! and lol humpty dance. that song was huge at summer camp when i was 12. i love finding silly stuff like that on vinyl!

    I like the jeans, especially with that blouse. It's giving off a 70's vibe. You might feel more pulled together if you add a fedora or funky necklace.

    Thanks for visiting my blog again! you're right, the syringe for cleaning wisdom teeth sockets post-op is strangely satisfying, especially when you get good enough at it that it doesn't ricochet off your teeth and onto the bathroom mirror. haha

    You look WAY better than those girls who are always rolling up late to class in their flares. Promise. I think the best way to make 'em sophisticated is to just go with the whole seventies vibe… chunky platforms, silk blouse, blazer, floppy hat, the whole bit. As a side note, I love your writing, it always makes me crack up.
