31 Dec Waxed Jeans
Well, here we are, and let’s just say, I took a 180 and am wearing something you don’t see me in often! I saw them on so many girls, I really had to go try them on . This wasn’t a Christmas gift, just a purchase I havent had a chance to wear yet. You all know my style, more of Monday’s post, with skirts or dresses, but I have been thinking I would like to wear some jeans, and when I tried these on, they were so comfortable and cool, I had to lay that plastic down!
I have seen these on many bloggers, the waxed coated denim, and loved the look, but wasn’t sure I could pull it off, due to the sensitivity in my legs. However, when I tried them on at Loft, they were soft and light, not constricting. I also ordered a size up as I wanted to give them a looser look and have the ability to wear them as a boyfriend jean, rolled up if I wanted. I love that they look like leather, yet aren’t. So yes, “Edgy” is a term that is not used to describe my style much now is it :-)) ! One of my goals several years ago, for PT was to wear jeans, as silly as this sounds, i just wanted to get to a place to where they felt comfortable on my skin. I find a looser fit works better for me, so Boyfriend jeans, or a similar style. I bought the top later, as I had been looking for a plain crisp white top, as I think it is a piece we should all have in our wardrobe, but wanted some extra “bling” on the collar to dress it up.
I tried it on with my peplum black top, kind of like a vest, and it seemed to work well. I styled it with the denim, and discovered that I really liked this edgy, cool, jeweled look. What I love about the top too, is that there i s no need for a necklace, as the black stones acts as one, as one’s eye is drawn to the neck. The jeans are pretty skinny at the bottom, so boots would work, but I decided to pair the outfit with my 40s pumps with grey flanel, the shoes-only-worn-for-the-blog-shoes. So, being that tonight is New Years Eve, we will go out earlier, then come home to watch the ball drop.
So, as my style is more classic with vintage vibes, I decided to branch out a bit today and try these cool waxed jeans.
Now, to find them in white…
What is your “edgiest” look? What are your plans for tonight New Years Eve?
