What I Wore Wednesday

Two looks for this week's What I Wore Wednesday.

Two looks that are basically the same.

Except not.

The thing is, once I find a basic style I like I tend to wear it often with only a few tweaks here and there.

I love the look of skinny jeans with blousy shirts or layers (in the fall), but I've always had a hard time finding a pair of skinny jeans that don't stretch out and bag around my bottom and knees after approximately 30 minutes. I have one pair from Banana Republic that I've had for years and every other pair (that's right Target and Old Navy, I'm talking about y'all) have gone on to be Goodwill's problem.

Then, thanks to Shaeffer at Pinterest Told Me To, I discovered Vigoss jeans.

And the angels sang.

They are stretchy but don't sag and bag. They can be worn cuffed or straight with flats, boots or heels. They are very reasonably priced. They are cute and comfortable. They have flattering stitching and distressing. 

It's like I had to order them.

Here is the *clean* (meaning a little distressed with whiskering but no holes) version first, which I wore yesterday.
Vigoss jeans: Nordstrom
Pleione blouse: Nordtsrom (another one of Shaefer's must haves) (snagged it during their anniversary sale)
Leopard belt: Target
Nude flats: Payless
Kimberly necklace: Stella and Dot

Here's the more distressed version of the jeans which I wore a few weeks ago:
Orange blouse: LOFT
Green belt: J. Crew Factory
Green earrings: Stella and Dot
Nude wedges: Kork-Ease (the most comfortable shoe EVER), Zappos
Watch: Michael Kors

I almost didn't give these jeans a whirl because they are juniors and are a skinnier fit than I usually wear. Maybe a 44 year old mom shouldn't wear skinny jeans, especially someone who actually has, you know, legs, hips and a butt. But I am. At least sometimes.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

  1. I love both of your outfits and if the jeans fit (and look appropriate), wear 'em!! You look great and if I saw you out, I'd be jealous of just how cute your jeans are. ;)
    Also, I completely agree about Old Navy and Target jeans - yucky.
