Swift

Second Chances, and a Trend Prediction

The last time I wore this sweater was here, and while I overall liked the look, there was something about the sweater that I just wasn't in love with. I thought it would probably be relegated to the back of the closet... and it kinda was.


The day this outfit was put together, it was late, I had to get out the door, and I just wanted something comfortable and warm to wear. This almost always equals a cardigan, and I thought I would give this one a go, since I have been always defaulting to my boyfriend cardigans too much.

I'm SO glad I did. Just goes to show, something that you might not love worn one way, you'll love worn another way! I have to admit that I don't love the photo, as much as I liked how it looked in the mirror, but I am still pretty happy with how it turned out. I liked it so much, in fact, that I think I am going to wear it on my next Girls Night Out. I know, I know... you're thinking, THAT outfit, for a Girls Night Out?
To clarify, the girls and I don't go to dance clubs, we go to the local pub. You can't wear bodycon dresses and fake eyelashes to the pub. Actually, scratch that, you CAN wear that to the pub. You can wear anything you want, but I've found over YEARS of intensive research at the pubs that nice-casual is the way to go. Nothing against dance clubs, I've been in the past, and I wouldn't mind going again in the future, but my vibe is a little more laid back at the moment. As I mentioned, on the last Girls Night Out, I wore this outfit. No boob, no leg, no nothing, and it was still one of our best nights EVER. My guess is that guys that frequent pubs are more inclined to less high-maintenance chicks? Just a theory. I feel here, that it would be prudent to clarify that yes, I am happily married, and all my conversations with gentlemen at the pubs end at banter.  I think the saying goes, "I'm married, not dead"?

And I've said it before, and I'll say it again. These Torrid boyfriend jeans are my

Absolute. Favourite. Jeans. Ever. 

I wish that I could find a pair of skinny jeans that fit in the waist the way these do... It could just be part and parcel of how boyfriend jeans fit, and can't be replicated in a crisper pair of jeans. Also, I kinda thought that they wouldn't work full length, and that they had to be rolled up to a capri length, but they totally work. Hell, if I wanted to wear tights with them, I could totally wear them into the dead of winter. But tights under distressed jeans is a bit too late 80s early 90s for me.

In keeping with the classic vibe of the sweater, I didn't go too crazy with the accessories or shoes. Just wore them with an old standby pair of rounded-toe wedges, some simple rhinestone studs, and a low-key rhinstone-pendant necklace. I am going to make a prediction, and forecast that the obsession with statement necklaces is going to abate a little, and delicate necklaces are going to be the next big thing. I can't really find them in the stores (I scoured the mall the other day), so it hasn't happened in a big way yet, but I think its coming. So, since I couldn't find them in the mall, I went to ebay. Even though it will take me about a month to get them, they are still totally worth the wait. They are EXACTLY what I am looking for, and they are cheap as all get-out.
Tumblr has really made me feel bad about using such gender-specific descriptive terms, but these necklaces look so delicate and lady-like to me. I really love that about them.  On the left is Golden Bar Paillette Beads Layering Necklace, and on the right is Trendy Multirow Gold Chain (style "cross")
Yes, I bought all of these. I know I probably don't really need this many of the same kind of necklace, but at less than $2 a pop with free shipping? I couldn't restrain myself. Top left is Celebrity Style Simple Tube Necklace Pendant (in rose gold). Bottom left is Horizontal Stick Noble Simple Bar Bone Pendant Necklace (how do they come up with these names?) And on the right is Trendy Multirow Gold Chain (style "horizontal bar")

Trying to stay a little true to the classic vibe of the sweater, I paired it with a low key set of studs, and a subtle rhinestone-pendant necklace.
