Frigid Friday: Boxy Sweater & Bootcut Jeans

Finally, the weekend is here!  I’m pretty excited it might be the end of the freez-ocalypse too.  It’s been so cold in my office lately – I’ve been opting for chunky cozy sweaters.  Here’s my latest fashion illustration for your Saturday enjoyment.

Today’s Illustration:
boxy cowl neck
Express (or $ LOFT & $$$ BCBG), leather belt J.Crew (or $asos), denim Levi’s (or $ asos and $$$ Bloomingdale’s), stamped initial necklace (or $$ Max & Chloe), chain earrings Club Monaco (or $ asos), lace up ankle bootie Steve Madden (or $$$ Tory Burch), nylon tote Michael Kors (or $ Zappos)

I’m not sure why – but I dusted off my bootcut jeans and have been rotating them in my wardrobe recently.  I guess I’ve been thinking about trying to get the most out of my clothes.  And, re-discovering something in your closet is almost as good as shopping.  And you’ll feel proud of yourself for getting the most out of your clothes.

I actually got these jeans for free (from Levi’s launch of  “Curve ID”) so I got  something I wouldn’t typically buy, bootcut.  I’m partial to skinny – but I like how this style paired with a cropped top and heels elongate me.

I’m still not sure how I feel about Curve ID; they classified me as “bold curve” which is not something that typically comes to mind when I consider my silhouette.  But – I do like the concept behind the line: every body is different.  Maybe I’ll head back to Levi’s and try another style in “bold curve.”

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the weekend – VNg and I are off to Atlantic City for continued birthday celebration.  (More on that later.)
