I haven’t been warm since August and that seems like a really long time ago. It’s been frigidly cold here on the fringe, so cold cars don’t like to start and people’s pipes burst. Twelve below zero is not for the faint of heart.
And today was our big warm up – thirty-six degrees and rain. Great. Just great.
But you didn’t come here for a weather report, you came here to see what I’ve been wearing all week. If I were completely honest, I would have taken a picture in my big, fluffy pink robe, because whether I am dressed for bed or for my day, the bathrobe goes on like a full body mitten. There’s nothing like wearing head-to-toe fleece in January. The fashion experts would never recommend it, but I would.
I wear these boots every single day. I love them to bits, but I wish they were fur lined. I am seriously considering buying a pair of furry boots for the really cold days. I run a few degrees cooler than average and my feet are the first to freeze.
Any recommendations on really warm boots?
I think this outfit breaks a lot of fashion rules, and honestly I’m not wild about the sweater; however, it is extremely warm. The sweater is wool, so I don’t mind if it makes me look bigger than normal. I should have worn a necklace, but oh, well.
Here’s the big fashion no-no. I am wearing boots and boot socks with jeans that aren’t skinny. I know it’s against the rules, but when I find a pair of skinny jeans in husky, I’ll buy them.
I made another pair of boot socks by cutting the arms off an old sweater. Such an easy and thrifty idea.
Sweater: ? I forgot. Shirt: Hand-me-down, Jeans: Kohl’s, Boots: Dr. Martens
I felt as cold as I look.
Pants: Kohl’s, Shirts (both): Hand-me-Down, Necklace: a gift from my husband (years ago – purchased at a consignment shop)
Pants: Kohl’s, Sweater: Hand-me-Down, Jacket: Thrifted, Necklace: Francesca’s
I was watching ice fall from trees, thus explaining the dumb look on my face.
I like colored pants. It may seem like you can’t wear them with a lot of things, but you can. As far as I can figure, they go with everything.
And I had my statement necklace long before they were popular. Just saying. I think the fancy girls are copying me.
Ma Nouvelle Mode is hosting a special day all about how to wear colored jeans. I’m not sure my pants are technically jeans, because they are corduroy, but I figure it’s close enough.
Here are a few ways I wear color on the bottom. I generally dress very casually, because I live in a place where people wear pajamas to the grocery store. Just sporting day wear makes you look all fain-cy.
Have you hopped on the fancy pants bandwagon?
What’s your favorite way to wear your colored jeans??
