So here's me, wearing 4 layers on top and 1 on the bottom:
black denim jeans: Forever 21
turquoise tee: Soul Flower
button up top: JCPenney
boots: Doc Martens
These jeans are super tight; they are my skinniest skinny jeans. Before I started the 30 for 30 challenge, I had been wearing these pants all the time, so I of course included them in my 30 items. But now I'm wishing that I would have picked another skirt instead of these pants. They are so tight! and it's cold out! I should have realized that winter is well on its way, and that I'd probably want to layer some leggings under my jeans as long underwear so I don't freeze. sigh.
That said, I'll have you know that I am also kicking myself (ha) for not choosing my warm, insulated winter boots. But they're just not as cute as my Docs! and I thought I could get away with wearing my Docs this winter. But today's 25-degree breath of frozen tundra made me change my mind. But let's see if I can at least get through my 30 days. I picked 'em, so I should be stuck with 'em. It's only fair.
These are my deliciously warm winter boots:
On another note...
I know accessories and jewelry can be really great for transforming an outfit and making it unique. The only problem is that I kind of suck at accessorizing. I can throw on a scarf, or a necklace, but anything more and I feel over-accessorized. Like I'm trying too hard.
I have these 3 cute waist belts in a light brown braid, shimmery gold, and dark brown with gold rivets. I've attempted to wear them 3 times: I succeeded once and the other 2 times I took them off immediately after I got to work and had a moment of panic that I looked overdone.
Would they look cute on me? How can I wear them without feeling like I have a grandma gut sticking out the bottom?
