You would think I’d be sick of these black jeans after wearing them for the remix challenge for the past two weeks.
Oh, but no. I’m still in that honeymoon phase with them.
Not that they’re new — they’ve just been in storage for the summer, so I haven’t seen them in a while.
I love that feeling when I pull an old favorite out of storage and get excited about it all over again. It’s like getting something new without buying anything.
While I actually think black jeans are seasonless, I kept them in storage over the summer because (a) for the most part, it was too hot for jeans in general, (b) that smokey black color lends itself to fall, in my opinion, and (c) I wanted that excited-all-over-again feeling when it was time to pull them out of storage.
(By the way, in case you’re wondering, “storage” is just a basic plastic tub in our guest bedroom closet.)
Anyway. Back to this outfit.
I’d wear this anywhere, anytime.
Not only do I love the neutral color and drape of the sweater, but it’s also somehow both warm enough and cool enough for the temperatures right now. Although, during the warmest part of the day, I’d shed the sweater and tie it around my waist — I have a simple tank on underneath.
Same story with the ankle booties — they keep my toes covered and warm if needed, but since they’re low profile they’re also cool enough for a warm afternoon. Plus they are wildly comfortable / walkable for a three inch heel — which I’ve about decided is the max height heel I’ll ever wear. I mean, never say never and all, but I’ve bought a few four inch heels in the past, and no matter how cute they are I just don’t wear ’em as much as my lower heels or flats.
So how about you? Pulled any pieces out of storage lately? Did you get that excited-all-over-again feeling? What do you think about this super simple outfit?
