Been working on my backlogged outfits from the past two months, finally ready to post some! I normally go week-to-week, but this time I thought it'd be fun to link back to some of Angie's blog posts. It has been interesting looking at my outfits as variations on a theme, since week-to-week and day-to-day they vary quite a bit. So! Here are a few recent outfits I've worn featuring various BF jeans. Clearly the semi-tuck reigns supreme.
#2/3, 06.25 (work). This blush linen baseball tee and destructed ultra-faded BF jeans are extra slouchy and slubby together, so all of my usual structural points: exposed skin (neck, arms, feet), refined pumps, and semi-tucked with a belt. I think this would've been a bit more urban feeling with my hair up but I was in a soft mood so I left it down. After wearing that crossbody bag a day or two, I re-realized that I don't like shoulder/xbody bags (after buying two, bah) and have since shortened the strap and relegated it to hand/clutch mode only.
#4/5, 07.07 (work). If this outfit looks familiar, that's because I loved it so much I wore it again just 10 days later to meet Shevia ^^ This version is more casual with the sandals (thanks Mo!), and glam in a different way with the giant crystal earrings and pomp-pony. All kinds of metals mixed in here: silver, rose gold, bronze -- the only thing missing is plain ol' gold ;)
#6/7, 07.22 (work). I had noticed that I was working my new purchases much more heavily than other things in my wardrobe, so for this outfit I pulled all older pieces except for the shoes and clutch. This base is a combo that I have worn several times, and it's always a favorite. Mixed textures (silk, large knit, denim, leather, sequins) and mixed critters (zebra, snake); I almost wore peacock earrings to add an additional critter but at the last minute swapped ^^ Changed things up by donning a plum lippie instead of my more usual summer go-tos (pink, orange, or red).
#8/9, 08.08 (work). Another outfit working older favorites, this time except shoes and belt. Was in a more boho mood so left the hair extra soft and curly, and popped on my longest earrings ^^ Last year I wore my white pumps with this outfit, this year I am enjoying the additional color and texture depth these gray suede pumps add (plus there's still plenty of white with the belt and clutch). One of these days I'll try something else, but for now I'm still happy with my usual lip color when I wear this violet sweater: orange. At least this day I went bright (bordering neon, even if it doesn't really show in the photos), versus the softer shade I'd usually wear.
#10/11, 08.17 (weekend). I had expected that both this linen sweater and these faded BF jeans would get a lot of wear this summer, but we've had such a wonderfully warm summer that neither have come out much at all! Can't complain too much about that ;) I definitely skew gold with my metals, but for this day I went (nearly) all silver with the belt, earrings, and shoes. Since the outfit is a bit grungy I chose soft hair and a light pink tinted lip balm.
