What I wore this week: skinnies & stripes

I want to try to get back to my what I wore posts...
and linking them up with Lindsey...
So here's to a new year getting dressed in real clothes more days than wearing yoga pants! :)

top:  Gap
belt:  Abercrombie {super, super old}

You guys.
Why haven't I been wearing skinny jeans all along??
Why was this amazing secret kept from me??
I don't know what took me so long to get on board.

My 1 year old has been wearing them since birth.
But she is much cooler than me.

heart tunic:  Old Navy
skinnies:  Target
balloon:  stolen from older brothers

They're awesome.
I had a some Old Navy coupons and a gift card burning a hole in my pocket.
And JoAnn's is right across the parking lot and I was already there.
So I got brave and bought a pair.

And then raced back the next day to buy three more.

They're my new love.
Comfy and cute.
Why did I wait so long??

stripey top:  Old Navy {from the fall}
leopard flats:  Lucky Brand {emmie flats} 

Do you wear skinny jeans?
Do you love, love, love them??
In case you couldn't tell...I do!

stripey top:  Old Navy {old...I actually rescued it from my "to be upcycled into baby clothing" pile!}
metallic flats:  Lucky Brand {emmie flats}

The camera strap cover in all the pics was made by me.
A simple tutorial on how to make your own is here.

  1. So cute! I love the look of skinny jeans but as I'm not as slim as you, mine are not comfortable!! But I wear them anyway! Lol x

  2. Yes! I love the ON rockstar skinnies too! I just got a corduroy pair too. You look great!

  3. I love my one and only pair of skinnies (come spring I'll have another capri pair in green!). They're a much skinnier friend's maternity pair. So comfy LOL

  4. Good job of looking cute and trendy! Love the rescued top too.

  5. Yep, you look cute in your skinnies. I can't understand why it took you so long to get on board with these. They are cute, comfy and easy. I love my ON Sweetheart skinnies with boots. I'm 54 and my kids are surprised I can still look "cool"! (It takes work tho which translates into no sweets and plenty of walking!) Your daughter looks like an absolute doll in hers too!

  6. I LOVE skinnies! I have several and even ventured out big time and got a colored pair! :) I am the same and would never have guessed that I would love them like i do!

    Love your blog, I am new follower, but not really.....I have had your blog in my favorites for quite some time. :)

    Take care!.....jodi

  7. ooh those look good on you! I'm juuuust getting on the bandwagon too. barely!

  8. Your outfits look great! =)
    and your little girl is so cute!...love the fact that she stole the balloon from her older brothers!
