OOTD :: of Monday metamorphosis

monday rest

Gave you two option for comfy footwear here. Pick your poison.

JMC said she wore jeans “every. single. damn. day” and she didn’t sound too thrilled about it.

Now, I’m not one to defend routine/monotony, but as a working mom, I do so look forward to weekends when I can shlep around in my boyfriend jeans. Perhaps JMC didn’t mean to disparage jeans per se; maybe she just needs a jean reboot.

And since I’ve already talked about wearing items more than once before laundering, I feel no shame about revealing that I intend to remix my fave pair of boyfriend jeans for the next three days this week. Why? Well, a) to prove to JMC that jeans every. single. damn. day can be fun and b) because I’m still on vacay, people, and I’m feeling extremely lazy.

Today, then, we begin with jeans and that all-time wardrobe staple: the Breton shirt. Every gal should own an iteration or three of this top because not only is it extremely comfortable and easy care (most are cotton or cotton blend, JMC!), it’s one step above a regular tee and can easily morph you from homebound hausfrau to errand running ace in a matter of seconds.

Some mommies might cringe at the sight of any sort of heel, but I SWEAR that these are like wearing flats.

All it takes is switching out footwear, donning an infinity scarf (a busy fashionista mom’s best friend), and half tucking that tee and you’re ready to grab the groceries and pick up the kiddies while looking cas and polished at the same time. If you’re feeling sassy and/or chilly, throw on a utility jacket for that third layer and now you’ve ramped up your look even more.

Now wasn’t that easy-peasy?

:: Just the facts, ma’am ::
Top – Gap
Jeans – Jennifer Lopez @ Kohl’s
PumpsJanine @ Payless
Flats – Old Navy

Jacket – Conversation Pieces
Scarf – gift from my mom

NOTE: It was super gusty outside (25mph winds) so I’m trying a new space for my pics. Sadly, I’ve realized that outdoor light is best, and my shots are sub-par, even after tweaking them in Photoshop. Ah, well. Y’all get the point.

  1. Yes! This is exactly how I live – I wear the base of an outfit around the house and throw on accessories, jewelry, and nicer shoes when I go out.
    I wear jeans most days too, but I have several different styles & colors, so I don’t get bored with them. Maybe JMC needs some colored denim?

  2. And…. roll up the legs of your jeans. Very well done. I agree with you, low heels can be very comfortable. Found you through Jan (Fort Smith Stylista).
    Looking good.

    • Ahahaha! You noticed! Yep, I’m a HUGE fan of the rolled up jeans which is funny because all style advice folk say for me not to do so because I’m so short and stumpy. Thing is, I have marvelously thin ankles that I love to show off, so rolled up jeans are de rigueur for me. Didn’t do so for the “at rest” photos because I was trying to channel my inner SAHM but it just didn’t work, did it? Ah, c’est la vie!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
