This is another one of my favourite outfits to throw on in replacement of leggings and a hoodie. It takes absolutely no more effort ( it’s still two pieces of clothing! ) but just looks much more put together. I’m not a huge fan of jeans, like every girl since leggings became a thing, let’s be real. But I own 27 pairs ( embarrassing, I know ) and I NEVER wear them. Ever.
I don’t really have a reason. I just don’t do wear them. I don’t know why. BUT I am going to.
I wore jeans to school on Tuesday and I felt a huge sense of accomplishment. <<<< please tell me you feel this way when you put on jeans instead of leggings…
I paired my favourite ripped jeans with my gray Converse and threw my fav black leather coat overtop. I love these particular jeans because they are super soft ( not jeggings though ) and fit like a boyfriend jean kind of. They aren’t as baggy as bf jeans are but they are still pretty loose fitting. They are perfect for all of the holiday treats that I plan on eating, and the cookies, and the hot drinks with whipped cream please because they will allow you to still wear them if you skip on your AM work-outs and indulge in the cookies. <<<< seriously people, don’t listen to me – indulge in the work-outs and skip the cookies.
BUT CAN WE TAKE A MINUTE and focus on the shoes. These are my favourite shoes for reals. They’re so comfy and cute and I LOVE the gray colour. I also have them in navy blue and burgundy and I have the classic white in hi-tops too because my love for Converse runs deep ( I also have a Tiffany Blue pair because so cute, but they don’t get the love they deserve ). I wear these gray ones all the time though. Absolutely obsessed and MUCH cuter than Uggs.
For those of you who don’t have super cold falls, you wouldn’t need the leather coat but this outfit still looks so cute! I love all of the different ways you can wear plaid flannels ( ++ post to come on this SOON yay! ) but lately I am loving tucking it in to jeans. I think it makes it look like you tried a little bit harder and I’m all for this.
I put the scarf overtop because I love scarves. I hardly ever leave my house in fall/winter without a scarf. I just love how cozy they are and they are cute too. This ones one of my favs that I got on sale at the end of last winter for $5 so that makes me love it even more.
Even though this outfit isn’t as dressy as my first two, I still love it and it’s super easy to wear. I guarantee you all have these basic pieces in your closet so put them to use! I hope you are enjoying this little series and you are feeling inspired to get out of your Uggs and sweatshirts even for just one day of the week. I still have dresses, denim on denim and my absolute fav VERTICAL STRIPES ( love love love ) coming up over the next three days.
If you’re not loving the fashion posts, next week I’ll have a mix of different ones and not strictly fashion promise!
Happy hump-day… It’s one day closer to FriYAY!
