Colored and Patterned Jeans for Spring

3 Apr


JUSTFAB Signature Skinny Ombre $39.99

Over the past few weeks I’ve been completely uninspired to get dressed in the morning.  When I tried to figure out why, the answer was simple.  I hadn’t cleaned out my closet in over a year (where I usually do it every 6 months) and much of what I had I simply didn’t like anymore or didn’t fit.  I thank Crossfit for that.

So I finally did a big purge a few weekends ago and sold off most of what I was getting rid of, which then gives me some funds to buy new stuff!

The thing I was needing the worst to complete my wardrobe after I cleaned it out was new pants.  None of my pants fit properly anymore because of Crossfit.  I couldn’t get anything up over my quads anymore.  So first thing I decided to shop for was some new jeans.  Luckily my job is business casual, so I can wear jeans so long as they aren’t standard blue jeans.  Colored and patterned jeans are totally acceptable in my office, which is awesome because this spring that’s exactly what’s on trend so there are tons of options!

These are some of my most recent additions you’ll see on the blog soon enough.  I can’t wait to wear them all!

JUSTFAB Signature Skinny Printed in Black and White Snake $39.95

hmprod2H&M Slim Regular Jeans $29.95

Can’t wear these to the office, but they’re great for weekends.  I’ve been wanting ripped jeans for a while and these were inexpensive enough to try the trend without breaking the bank.

I actually got these in a super cool black colored lace overlay version.  Couldn’t find it on their website.

Leggings and Boots

1 Nov

Lazy Leopard
What I’m Wearing / Levi’s Jacket (via Crossroads Trading Co) / Alloy Sweater / Tightsplease Leggings (c/o) / JustFab Keira Moto Boots (c/o) / Cornelia Guest Handbag

All I’ve been wearing lately is leggings and boots.  It seems I get lazier and lazier as I get deeper into my 30’s.  This morning when I was getting ready for work (yes,  I’m even wearing them to work, super lazy) I near had a panic attack when I saw I was down to my last clean pair of leggings for the week.

Tightsplease had contacted me not too long ago and generously offered me my pick of an item from their store to check out. Didn’t take long at all for me to find these leopard paneled leggings on their website and before I knew it they we’re here for me to try on. Perfect choice for me considering they’re leggings plus leopard, which equals awesome.

Another new acquisition I’ve been wearing non-stop are these moto boots from JustFab. I’ve been wearing heels so often the flat boots are a welcome break.

I met the JustFab team at the LuckyFABB event this past September and I was stoked all their products are coincidentally vegan. Not only are they vegan, they’re chic and inexpensive too. Since getting these boots they gifted me with I’ve bought another pair of knee-high wedge boots and a hot leopard and yellow clutch I can’t wait to use.  Those boots go perfect with leggings as well, which means no one will see me in normal clothing while in public for quite some time.

What are some of your new favorite “lazy day” wear acquisitions?

{What I’m Wearing: Denim Moto Jacket: Levi’s (via Crossroads Trading Co.); Tee: Gap (via Buffalo Exchange); Jeans: Mavi; Heels: Target; Bag: Cornelia Guest}

I wore this my first day back to work after my Denver to Chicago trip. Anytime I’m functioning on near zero sleep and can’t think, I always wear black. You just can’t go wrong with it. I had picked up this awesome tee while in Chicago so it worked perfect. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn it was now almost sweater weather in NYC, so I threw on my new denim moto jacket (also a Chicago find) and ran out the door to work.

What followed I seriously couldn’t make up.

I go out to my car and guess what? Some jerk broke into it. The timing of this couldn’t be more ironic because I was just telling Bex the day prior how rare it is to have cars broken into in my neighborhood. Go figure. Oh, and the vandal didn’t take any of the valuables, they left them in the car. The only thing they took was my proof of insurance and registration. What… the…hell? It’s like their primary goal was to make life as inconvenient as possible for whoever’s car they broke into.

After having to file a police report (because of the missing documents, I needed proof in case I get pulled over while waiting for new ones), clean up the glass and vacuum the car out, I finally got into the office. I go to turn my computer on and it doesn’t turn on. It’s totally dead. So I got to spend the rest of the day waiting for replacement parts to arrive to replace its power supply. I got zero done.

I eventually get home from work only to have to take a parking spot a block away because all the street parking is taken by heavy machinery. Guess the city decided this week was a good week to replace our sewage pipes. Yay!

Trying to remain positive, the backhoe did make an awesome photo backdrop.

I totaled up each item I’ve worn during this 30 for 30 challenge and I realized I have yet to wear two items! I hadn’t worn my long sleeve cardigan or my regular skinny jeans. Since my chosen footwear up to this point wasn’t appropriate for a concert, I instead decided to pull a wild card and break out these booties to wear to the Soundgarden concert.

The hubby and I are huge 90’s grunge fans and Soundgarden is at the top of our list of favorite bands. We were beyond stoked to hear they were doing a reunion tour. At the concert we were too lazy to push our way all the way upfront, but did end up with great seats to enjoy the show from. They sounded exactly the same as they did on their CD’s, so we left the show very happy fans. My favorite part about concerts are the crazy light shows, and this one had no shortage of them.

Are you going to any concerts this summer? I love summer for all it’s concert choices.

Sunday Shirt

{Shirt: Vintage from Buffalo Exchange; Denim Shorts: H&M; Sandals: Alloy}

This shirt is ridiculously comfortable and perfect for summer.  It’s not see through, but  the breeze travels right through it, keeping me cool.  So it’s a go-to item for me on weekends.  I also wore this shirt the previous Sunday during this 30 for 30 challenge, so I hereby dub it my Sunday Shirt.

This is what I wore Thursday of last week.  My husband and I attended a fundraiser that evening to benefit the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary.  It was held on a rooftop here in Williamsburg, and there was amazing vegan hor d’oeuvres, cocktails and entertainment.  We had heard about the event last-minute the night before, and after hearing it was going to be held so close to home we had to swing by and check it out.  All the proceeds are going to go towards repairs and improvements for the sanctuary’s duck pond and pig barn.  I have yet to actually visit the sanctuary myself, but being it’s only a two-hour drive north of the city I’m making it a goal of mine to get there before the end of the summer.

All in all we had a fantastic time and I had to opportunity to meet and network with more vegans from the area, which is always fun.

I had attempted to take more photos at the event, but again we had gray, crappy weather and none of my images came out well.  Here’s hoping the weather breaks sooner rather than later!

I noticed when putting this post together that for the vast majority of my photos for this challenge, it’s been all rainy and gray outside. I don’t know what the hell is up with this weather, but by the looks of it we haven’t seen sunshine in ages. That or the sun only comes out when I’m at the office and then disappears on my ride home for the evening.
