Ok let me start off by saying I hate jeans that have what I call a “fake fade.” You know which ones I mean, right?
You know…those ones. The ones you see and you are like…no way have you worn those so many times that they are naturally worn in and faded like that. I just really can’t stand them. Which brings me to my outfit from the weekend. No seriously…it does.
I was, what you would call, a waste of space this weekend. Didn’t do much that amounted to anything, and honestly, it was pretty awesome. I love weekends like those every now and then. I did though get dressed and out the door for church on Sunday. This is where the fake fade jeans come in.
As you know, I had a baby in September and along with that gorgeous little Charlotte came a boatload of weight. Woo. Hoo. So in my attempt to lose the baby weight, I don’t want to keep spending $70 for pair after pair of jeans while I am shrinking and shrinking day by day (or month by month is more like it). In comes my Mossimo jeans from Target. Usually I am a fan. Inexpensive jeans, comfortable. Get the job done. Then, I saw my outfit pics….
Can we talk about whats going on from my knees to my thighs?? (which, by the way, happen to be one of my LEAST favorite parts of my body…why not accentuate them?!?!). Its the fake fade. How did I not see this? Why did my husband not tell me before we left the house?!?! Why didn’t anyone at church, being the good Christians that they are, not tell me?!?!?!?! (Oh right, probably because that days sermon was about not judging others…duh) Instead, I walked around all day with these ridiculous jeans on. Maybe its not as bad as I am making them out to be…right? Right? Maybe?
Bad jeans aside though, I was excited to wear this shirt. I got it on sale…no way was I paying full price ($80) for it. Neiman Marcus, you are awesome, but seriously…$80 for a shirt at Target? Don’t think so. I even think I could have gotten away with getting a size smaller, which kind of makes me do a little cart wheel in my faded jeans!
Once again, wasn’t sure how to wear it but knew I wanted it…like all my other clothes, it was laying on the floor next to my leopard flats….why not?!?! Another accidental pairing, just like this outfit.
