No, I am not in combat, did not just sign up for the military, and am not inhabited by another being that is not “Jess”. I have looked through so many blogs, and having seen so many of you in combat jeans/pants, I decided to step out of my comfort zone of dresses and skirts and buy a pair. In a sense I am in combat, trying to “combat bad fashion”.
There will be no further steps I take, I will not shave my head, start doing 100 pushups in the middle of the night, or wake up at the crack of down to fix the corner of my sheets or polish my boots. This is it! Truthfully, I don’t wear pants often as I have a sensitivity in my legs from my illness, that usually they are not as comfortable on me as skirts and dresses are. SO, I decided I would buy one size up from my normal size, wear them baggier, like a Boyfriend camo pant. As, I was walking to take this photo shoot, I did realize something. Generally if one goes up a size, one needs a belt. So I was holding them as I walked down the street, but a belt is an easy solution.
I did like these on everyone I saw, so I took the leap. I decided to get them because they are stretchy and soft, and just plain cool!
I wanted to pair the pants and boots with a more feminine top or sweater as to off set the camo style. I decided to pair it with a blue chiffon rose cardi for more of a mix with a feminine touch to contrast with the pants. Hope you like it!
