Fashionably Late?

Monday, September 21, 2009
I was late for work today. Sleep was too good...but it almost cost me. I had this outfit mentally picked out the night before but still not sure if it works.

I'm a little iffy on the jeans now. They look like leggings, but they're not. So I feel like I have to cover my crotch area. I just used the word crotch on my blog...... At least I wore my "leather" jacket today! Love it love it love it.

  2. love the faux leather jacket, so cute! i was almost late for class myself today because i overslept. i love your jeans, and if u feel they are a tad "legging-like" then wear longer tops, or even layer, since you get to enjoy cooler weather :)

  4. I really like the jeans, i dont think they look like leggings, and you can tell theyre not because of the gather on your lower legs.
    I do the same thing as you buy mentally working out an outfit :)
    Youve put this outfit together well, always looking effortless Elaine!

  13. the jacket is great! i love the balance it brings to the femininity of the top and the pearls. i didn't think about it until you said it but i suppose the jeans do resemble leggings for some reason. maybe a little more contrast or a darker denim on the bottom next time? you look great!

  17. Love the outfit, and those jeans with that shirt are awesome. But I know what you mean about Skinny's sometimes feeling like leggings. Love the pearls. I've been looking for ridiculously long faux pearls for a while now, would love to know if you have any ideas on places to look.

  20. It rocks. I love that in every picture I know exactly where you are. Sigh. Short-lived nostalgia for that campus. But very short-lived: then I remember I'm glad I'm done. :) You look fab. That shirt and the pearls combo is one of my favs.

  31. The outfit definitely works, I love it! LOL, now if someone googles "crotch" you blog may come up :)

    Yes definitely give the long dresses a try! Luckily I don't have to have them hemmed but even if I did I'd probably still buy them :)

    Better late than never ;)

  32. The combination of ultra-feminine pearls and soft pink shirt were PERFECT compliments to the tougher looking leather jacket and edgier gray skinnies!
