In the Wool and Rain

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
It was cloudy today and the forecast called for rain. I probably shouldn't have worn my wool blazer but I wanted something cropped and structured with my wide leg jeans....

I feel like the blog world jumps for joy any time I opt for something other than my skinny jeans...especially the more conservatively modest crowd. I like my skinny jeans and if you don't like me wearing them, I'm sorry because I still plan on wearing my skinnies.

  6. I love the last photo of you - simply stunning! Boot cut or skinny, you always look fabulous in your jeans!

  7. I love your skinny jeans!! I didn't know skinny jeans were not modest - they still cover everything up. These jeans are great too!!

  8. I think I know where you got that comment from about your skinnies! They honestly don't even look that tight on you. I don't like it when I see jeans clenching women's butts too tightly. I think that's where the problem arises.. no matter what type of pants.

    I don't look good in them anyway, so I haven't really worn my skinny jeans too much. I guess if I did, I'd wear them more often with a long shirt or a short dress. That's just because my behind is so prominent, and I can look fat with it :-/

  9. love this! it is refreshing to see you in wide leg but i do love the skinnies on you, too :)

  10. i like skinnies, but i am on the hunt for a good wide leg - bell bottom jean!

  11. LOVE that blazer! Lookin good! We had rain all day here.

  12. those arent really wide leg pants, they are more boot cut. a true wide leg pant would have probably looked better.

  13. Love the navy T-shirt...with the necklace and blazer you adding a fabulous chic to this casual outfit...I love your effortless style.

  14. Oh that windswept closeup is so lovely! And I think wool is nice to wear when it's raining because it can be more waterproof than a trench.

  15. Ilove you in skinnies, I think they're prettier than wide leg jeans, though I like them too. :)
    Oh, and right now I'm so happy that I finally got black flowered tights for me to wear here in this always-sunny-and-hot country! And I feel so close to you just because you have the same pair, can you believe it? Hahaha, I promise I'll take a picture and post with an elegant outfit later! :) Have a great Thursday!

  16. I didn't know people thought skinny jeans were immodest! I guess I can see why, but they are so cute! And look fantastic on you! But I like the wide leg jeans too, especially with that jacket!

    ReplyDelete

  26. navy blue striped top with the blazer is great on your!

  27. Skinny jeans are nice, but I think wide leg jeans are much more glamorous! For short girls like me, the appearance of longer legs is great! Cute outfit, as usual, my dear!

  41. This outfit looks great. I won't lie. I usually hate flared pants. You, however, are pulling them off. I supposed I shouldn't be surprised though--I think you can wear anything and make it look chic.

  42. I'd wear the skinny jeans if I had the shape, but since I don't, I'll leave it to people like my sister. Haha.

  43. PS: bought a pencil skirt from Tulle...I think it was you who I heard about them from. Anyway, it's the only purple thing I own, and the only pencil skirt I own, and it's pretty fantastic. I have a feeling I might start to expand my skirt collection soon.

  49. I think all of your outfits are a) marvelous and b) modest. You are true to yourself and your standards and that is what should matter.

    I love that blazer with the stripes.

  56. I'm afraid the wide-leg jeans remind me too much of the polyester outfits my mom put me in for school way back when. Shudder.

    ReplyDelete
  57. love this simple outfit on you! i don't understand what's so wrong about skinny jeans i mean...they still don't show much skin and they're definitely a lot more easy to style everyday, so just keep on wearin' them because you rock everything you wear!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love my skinny jeans and I wear them all of the time. There is nothing wrong with wearing them. Stick to what you like and you will feel beautiful! And look beautiful too, as you always do!

  68. I had no idea there was an issue with your skinnies!? How bizarre. It's not like they're see through. Or shredded and you're flashing bum cheek or something.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Honestly, I jump for joy every time I see a fashion blogger wearing pants, period! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I heart your skinnies! I wish I had a pair like that! :(

    I love your jacket, but I hate getting caught in the rain with wool - I end up smelling like a wet dog all day!

  73. The outline of a woman's [fully covered] leg, zomg scandalous!!1! gah.

    I think there is room in a modest warbrobe for slim-fitting pants. Your skinny jeans seem to keep you well covered. If your bum were hanging out, then that would be another story! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  74. who would have a problem with anything you wear? that doesnt make sense at all you always look great .. keep wearing what you like you always look awesome

    ReplyDelete
  75. Girl... If I had your type of body I would wear skinny jeans ALL the time!:-p
    I wish... (sigh)...
    Love reading your blog and see how much you "pull" off out of a "skinny" closet!
