cozy sweater and jeans

It probably won’t last long, and I know it’s not the kind of cold most everyone else is dealing with, but it still requires us to bundle up a teensy bit (compared to our typical short sleeves, short dress, and sandals kind of days). The past few days have been predicting rain, but we barely got any. I don’t know why they are always getting it wrong in Southern California. Seriously.

I’m not typically a denim person. It’s not something I’ve ever splurged on. Actually, I did once, and it was on some maternity denim jeans when I was pregnant with Brave. During those nine months, I only wore jeans and t-shirts, anything else made me nauseous. Those pregnancy hormones are so strange, aren’t they?!

I love the look of vintage Levi’s 501s (like this), but it’s hard to find ones that fit me just right. I did thrift a pair not too long ago, but it’s slightly too big (I still wear them though). I like these boy jeans in a cropped length, but figured I could find similar at the thrift store. With new styles these days, I think most of it could be thrifted and for much less (or I just sew it). Plus, I’d rather save on clothes and splurge on shoes.

Take this sweater for example, there was this one from Piperlime that I loved, so I was excited to come across this similar cropped one at the thrift store. Score! These jeans were from the boys section and I love them. I’m short at 5 foot even, so I think the technical rules are shorties like me shouldn’t wear cropped boy jean style, but I say whatever to that and I’ll wear what I like.

on me: sweater (similar new, similar vintage), thrifted. jeans (similar new, similar vintage), thrifted. boots, piper lime.
