Holey Knees

In the spirit of moving on from winter, here is another outfit I won’t be able to wear anymore. Although I prefer the warmer weather, I do love a good cozy sweater (and scarf!), so I’m a little sad to put these two away.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but distressed jeans are all the rage now, and I kinda love this pair I have from Target. My only complaint is that I wish the holes weren’t right at both of my knees. It just kinda feels weird, and my favorite part of the distressed look is the white “strings” or whatever from the denim, and with holes at the knees, you don’t really get that look.

Guess I’ll just have to buy another pair with holes elsewhere! (Also, can we talk about how I was in elementary school the last time holey jeans were in, and I begged my mom to let me cut holes in the knees of my jeans? I’m old, guys – trends are circling back.)
1 - plaid scarf, sweaterHow do you feel about distressed jeans (or cozy sweaters)? Did you wear them the last time they were in, or is this a first for you?

Inspired Looks: Jack Frost

Okay, so this look really isn’t inspired, any more than any of my other outfits are.  But, I want to keep my Wednesdays consistent.  Just go with it.

It’s COLD, y’all!  I’m not used to this in November in Virginia.  I should still be wearing a light jacket, not bundled up in a coat, scarf, and gloves!

Of course, my office does have heat.  But, subconsciously, when the temperature suddenly dips, I feel the need to bundle up as much as possible.  Even if I then end up sweating most of the day.

This bulky sweater is one of my favorites – not only because it’s so warm and cozy and because grandma sweaters are in right now – but also because it legitimately belonged to my grandmother.  You know wearing her clothes is one of my joys in life.

I wore this on a gray day, so I decided to bring some color with my pants and scarf.  This scarf makes me feel a bit like the Chiquita banana girl, but I’m okay with that.  I wore a gray shirt underneath the sweater and gray pumps, since I had so much else going on with the pants and scarf, and I kept my accessories simple, so as not to compete.

Oh, winter.   My dry hands hate you, but my romantic heart loves the coziness that you bring.

Sweater: Grannie (I think from JCP originally
Pants: Kohl’s
Shoes: Payless
Scarf: Rue 21 (I know, it’s a cheap store – but, you can find really great accessories (especially scarves) for super inexpensive prices…so it’s worth a look now and then)
