I know I’ve mentioned a few (million!) times that I have a bit of an obsession with jeans; although that doesn’t necessarily mean denim in general, because – as you may recall reading – I’ve more or less accepted the fact that jean skirts are really not my thing!! At any rate, it probably won’t come as a huge surprise that these skinnies I’m showing off today are a brand new addition to my ever-evolving denim collection.
Why am I forever a pushover for another…and another…and yet another pair of jeans?? Truthfully, that’s rather difficult to define!! Maybe being the ultimate go-with-anything and wear-just-about-anywhere “basic” has something to do with it. Or maybe it’s because there’s hardly another basic out there that comes close to jeans for the sheer variety of options available. There are different washes, colours and silhouettes galore, embellishments (or not)…the list is virtually endless.
And even with all those choices, there’s still always the next new and oh-so-cool design idea or finishing detail to covet!! Although whether or not they’re designer has never been important to me – in fact, I find way more styles to love at H&M and Forever 21 than I’ve ever found in a store that stocks nothing but the latest, and much more expensive, “it” labels. Spending a mere $25 like I did for these jeans versus (potentially!) ten times that much?? Kind of a no-brainer in my books!!
I’ve got one of my fab faux-fur jackets and some leopard-patterned pumps going on here, too…plus my favourite, perfectly worn-in camouflage shirt and cozy mohair beanie!! Is there any better look than one made up of pieces that are both chic and comfy?? While a denim and hoodie combo could easily read über-casual, I’ve elevated the look with these statement heels, some luxe texture…and a little touch of jewelry bling. ‘Cause with Christmas right around the corner, it’s now or never when it comes to getting our fancy on!! 😉
(P.S. Speaking of Christmas – remember to stop by for visit on the Big Day for my special holiday look!!)
