Jeans and blouses

I've been pretty slack at taking outfit photos, lately. I haven't touched a camera aside from my iPhone in what seems like months (but is probably less). But here are a couple of outfits that I've worn somewhat lately - this post has been sitting in my drafts for quite some time, as I keep forgetting about it. 

Both outfits include the new(ish) pair of jeans I've been loving (from Target). Some days, wearing tights and a dress somehow seems like more effort than a blouse and pair of pants! So, I'm glad to have at least one pair I can put on, on those days.

Aside from the jeans everything else I'm wearing is secondhand or vintage.

How amazing is this blouse? I love it so much. The pintuck pleats, the bright floral pattern on the black background, that pointy collar! Ahhhh.

I really wish I had a cute leather(look) jacket to top this outfit off. With the creepers and nearly-all-black, I feel like I'm going back to the outfits I would have worn nearly 10 years ago. Ha.

I love my hair a lot, lately. I'm generally just letting it do it's natural thing. I miss being a redhead but I love being a brunette, again, and it's just so much easier to maintain.

What do you wear on those days you want to be a little dressed up but kind of can't be bothered?

  1. These outfits are great!

    And, yes! I totally know what you are talking about. Lately when I get kind of grumbly about getting dressed I find myself in my uniform of a western wear shirt and Freddies.

  3. That floral blouse is amazing! It has a subtle Liberty of London vibe, but is more relaxed and cool - sort of like tiny flowers that play by their own rules, if that make senses. :) You look fantastic in both outfits, dear Andi.

    1. Thanks :) they're $40 and I'm not entirely sure what you mean? They're stretchy and I basically just leave them as they were. :)

    2. I find rtw jeans really baggy in the ankle, too much stretch in the material and too much length im like 5'4, so i always have to turn up jeans, what height are you?

    3. They're not baggy in the ankle but they do bunch up a little. It doesn't look bad because they're so tight but with certain shoes I do fold them up. I'm 5'3 :)
