Last night I spent two and a half hours shopping for my first blog conference outfit. I know to some of you that isn’t very long, but it’s much longer than I wanted to spend looking for one top and one pair of jeans.
I figured I’d go into Old Navy and walk out with what I was looking for 20 minutes later. Apparently, since it’s been two years since I’ve purchased a new pair of pants, I forgot the torture that is jeans shopping.
My size was the ONLY one that seemed to be missing from all piles of jeans in Old Navy. I tried on a few pairs there, but either they were way too big or way too small, or just right in the legs but with a tiny waist band that was too high and created a muffin top. Not cute.
Then I got to Gap and the style I wanted was the ONLY style not on sale for 40% off. By this time I was over the experience, so I went ahead and bought them anyways. But not after trying on what I was confident was the right size, realizing they weren’t, putting my pants back on, and then going to get the right size and try them on just in case. I hate pants.
So this is the look I settled on:
I’ll be wearing the boots, not the heels.
Yes, I know I’m a grandma with my sweaters. But I love them. Plus I want to be comfortable. Being over the top stylish just isn’t me.
Now what kind of jewelry should I wear with this?
