Switching It Up

 

jeans/sweater/tee: Old Navy (apparently I'm a walking Old Navy ad this week...),
belt: Kohl's, necklace: JCPenney, shoes: Target


The first time I wore these shoes, I paired them with this sweater.  (See that post here)  This time I wanted to switch it up a bit so I added these really flared jeans (hooray for those fitting for the first time since 2009!), then changed the look of the sweater by adding the belt.  I added a newer statement necklace, and headed out the door. Later in the day I read Merrick's post about elevating an outfit and realized that’s what I had done!  I must admit, I was pretty proud of myself. :)
By the way, I picked these jeans this morning because these shoes paired with skinny jeans made my feet look enormous.  As I said, it’s been a few years since I’ve worn them, so let me ask you this:  flared jeans – still in style or no?!

  2. Yes to the jeans! I do love my skinny jeans, but I have a couple of pairs of flared ones and I think if they are cut right they can still look really nice! And I LOVE these shoes.

    1. Shoes may be my new obsession! As always, I have to thank Target for great options at affordable prices, so I can keep adding to my collection. :)

  3. The mint shoes and tee give the perfect amount of color to your neutral sweater! I haven't worn my flare jeans in forever but I have seen them on some bloggers lately which is a good indication that they're back in style :)

    1. I'll take that as a good enough reason to add them back into the jeans rotation! :)

  4. Great outfit! I love the shoes and how you paired that amazing belt and statement necklace to take the whole outfit up a notch. I think flared jeans are always in style, and that's awesome that they fit for the first time since 09 - that is the best feeling ever! :)
