Sunny Side Up


Sweater - ASOS, Woodstock Jeans - Hudson, Shoes - ModCloth, Bag - Melie Bianco, Belt, Hat, and Bracelet - vintage

I have always been a die-hard skinny jeans girl, but I am always up for trying something new. These Woodstock Wide-leg Hudson jeans are . . . super wide, a style I haven't sported since grade school, but I was attracted to the idea of testing them out once again. It was instant love as soon as I pulled these on. When you go wide, you most definitely never go back. hehe. They make me feel free-spirited and a little bit bohemian. Perfect for a lazy weekend stroll. I am happy to say that I have found a new way to change up my leg wear when skinnies feel too monotonous. Leave your legs room to breathe and roam, I say! Life is to short to get stuck in a rut. Who knew that a pair of wide-leg jeans could have such an impact on one's outlook on life?!

I found this vintage hat a few weeks ago at the Salvation Army Boutique in Santa Monica, and it has been my go-to piece when I don't know what else to do with my hair (which is most of the time). I just had to sew this brown ribbon around it to get it back into tip-top-shape. A hat always makes an outfit look that much better. I think I need more wide-brimmed ones in my life to get me through those oh too many bad hair / I don't want to brush days. Thanks hat. You are a lifesaver. Kisses to you. Oh, and cable knit sweaters are basically da bomb. Can't get enough of the cozy little suckers.

I have some very exciting things in the works for the start of next year, but I don't want to say anything until it's all finalized. All I can say is that I am very, very happy and thankful for the opportunities that my blog has brought me, as well as all of your support along each step of the way. As you can tell, the weather has been delightfully warm lately and I am taking advantage of it as much as I can! The weather complements my mood, which is bright and sunny.

These jeans are great, they definitely make a change from the fail safe skinnies. Perfectly paired with the cable knit.

I did a shoot last year which was very seventies themed, and I wore some gorgeous wide legged jeans a little like these. I was pleasantly surprised by how good they looked! And I can imagine that pair is really comfortable..
I love the jumper too, cable knit is always very classic. Looking forward to hearing more about the exciting things happening next year.

Taylor said...

I love your flares. I thought I was a die hard skinny jeans girl too, but then I tried flares again and now I can't stop wearing them... felt very much like I was in 9th grade again at first, though. Unexpected warm weather in December is always nice.

PUNKIE said...

so simple but so damn chic! love this look!

Poster Girl said...

Hats are my go-to accessory for fall and winter. They always get you noticed! Like you, I'm also trading my skinnies for flares and wide leg silhouettes. Very chic!

You make amazing finds I must say. Ha oddly enough I always use to wear leggins in grade school now I wear all boot cut. Funny how that works. Though I think skinny looks better on other people than me. They just make me look like an upside down pear.

I love this! So pretty! M. U look good in these jeans.

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

On another note, I listened to your "Die Alone" Video and your voice is not to believed! I didnt expect that voice and tone to come out of you.. why are you not a singer?!!!!!!!!!
