Oh hey again, supermom jeans! These guys are currently taking over the bottom half of my wardrobe.
They may be on constant rotation now, but it was a different story when I first got them. It took me a few days to figure out how to wear them in a way that felt true to my style.
Has that ever happened to you?
It happens to me regularly, don’t feel bad. But when I’m figuring out a new piece in my closet, I start here:
I sandwich it between familiar pieces I feel mega comfortable in.
Like how I did here, sandwiching these supermom jeans between the most basic grey tee, a simple black cardigan, and my beloved clogs.
And suddenly, it doesn’t feel like I’m trying too hard. It doesn’t feel trendy. It just feels like … me.
Try it the next time you’re unsure how to style a new piece, and let me know how it goes.
Switching subjects, I loved what you guys had to say in the comments of yesterday’s post about adding warm color to cold weather outfits. I particularly loved your suggestion on adding color via your beauty routine instead of your clothes — like wearing nail polish or a bold lip color.
I’ve never really worn lip color before, but that just may have to change soon. There’s also this tiny part of me that wants to go a shade lighter with my hair to take this whole “lighten up the fall + winter” thing even further. Look out, I’m getting crazy over here. We’ll see.
No post tomorrow, but Thursday’s post is going to be fun — I’m sharing what I packed for our recent trip to Seattle. Got any questions on packing light? Let me know in the comments and I’ll try to answer them on Thursday.
