Winter Break Purchase #2

What: Floral jeans
When: December
Where: JCPenney Outlet
Price: 5-7 dollars (I forgot the exact price)
How: The local JCPenney Outlet was closing, so my sister and I decided to check out the final sales. I went in looking for sweaters but came out with a new pair of jeans.

Comments I received:
"Are those pajama pants?"
"I like your pants."
"I'm feeling them to see what kind of fabric it is because they don't look like jeans."

Leggings as Pants

Yesterday, I tweeted "#teamtooscaredtorevealmybutttowearleggingsaspants," but today I changed my mind because leggings are probably the perfect winter bottom (The real story is it was so cold yesterday that I wore leggings under my jeans and was too lazy to ever take them off). They're perfect because they're so comfortable, and they cling to your legs to keep you warm. I also realized I have assets, so why not show them off? I mean, I can't be single for the rest of my life, right? Because these leggings are 3/4 lengths, I paired them with my long fuzzy socks to keep the rest of my legs warm. I'll also probably wear boots with this outfit because anything else would look weird. For the top, I added two necklaces to make this plain shirt flashier. This outfit has a very different style from the outfit I wore yesterday because it's more close-fitting and cuter. However, this outfit also gets me closer to looking like the common white girl. All I need is a Northface jacket and Uggs to complete this look. Too bad Northface jackets and Uggs are too expensive and mainstream for this blog (I would not be against owning those items if I had the money; I just wouldn't feature them in this blog).

Winter Break Purchase #1

Snowy weather dawned Charlottesville today, which forced me to wear shoes with traction. This is the first time wearing my new rain boots from The Shoe Dept ($16.97, Clearance section; did not plan to buy them at all; saw kids' rain boots on sale first, but they lit up). Having only slept one and half hours, I threw this outfit on with the intention of just keeping warm. I kept it simple with a navy sweater, but added detail with my coat and rain boots. I even mixed patterns, but kept the color scheme the same.
