30 for 30 Day 1: Girl About Town

8 Nov

Jeans:  GAP

T-shirt:  H & M

Jacket: LC Lauren Conrad @ Kohls

Scarf: H & M

Shoes: Marshalls

Sunglasses: Rayban Wayfarer

This is my first outfit for Kendi Everyday’s 30 for 30. I wore this on Saturday afternoon running errands and grocery shopping (read: buying wine and renting ‘The Last Song”, ’cause I’m classy like that). While I’m sort of meh about the outfit,  I really like the contrast of the flowers and the stripes, I think it makes each of them pop. We finally have fall weather in Texas, so I threw on this jacket to stay warm warm and tie the look together. On that note, rant time: Houston, I know it’s getting chilly, but for reals, you DO NOT need a FRICKIN’ PARKA to go outside. It’s like 65 degrees out, sweater weather and it’s amazeballs, not the end of times. Rant done.

Anyways, I bought these jeans a few weeks ago from the Gap and I love, love, love them. They’re comfortable and slightly straight-legged, which is fantastic for a curvy girl like me since finding a pair skinny jeans that do not make me feel like my legs are two cased sausages has been my life quest for the past two years. And so when I put these on, I felt like I should have gotten a medal, they made me feel that accomplished. Hooray for having one life goal complete!

    Ooo, I love the stripes and floral scarf. That’s my favourite pattern combination (:

    Love the mix of stripes and florals. And lol at your mini rant. People in NYC are the same way every time there’s the slightest change in seasons.

      I don’t think so, I think I got it last spring. But H & M always has vibrant, fantastic scarfs to choose from!
