This outfit was the outcome of a handful of “why don’t I do that?” moments.
It all started with a post about a striped sweater over at See Anna Jane. I noticed that the sweater she was writing about was tucked into her jeans. I’ve seen sweaters tucked into skirts, and sweaters half tucked into jeans, but rarely do I see sweaters fully tucked into jeans. Is that just me?
Shirt: Banana Republic / Jeans: 7 For All Mankind / Belt: Express / Boots: Sam Edelman
I decided to give the look a shot. Granted I used a jersey shirt instead of a sweater, but I still got the same vibe.
It’s a 90’s jean advertisement vibe. Haha.
I’ve struggled with these boots for the last little while. I was so used to wearing bootcut jeans with them, that when I only had skinny jeans to choose from they sat unworn in my closet. Caroline at Unfancy did a post a while back on cuffing jeans with ankle boots. I read it and originally wrote it off as something I couldn’t pull off.
Fast forward to last week and I saw one of the younger librarians in town with cuffed skinny jeans over her booties. Suddenly it didn’t seem so out of reach.
I kinda like it.
Have you gone out on a limb and tried anything new lately?
