Ensemble: Dots & Chambray

Good Monday readers!  This outfit is actually from a couple of weeks ago.  I had some stitches in my leg, so I had to rock my flare jeans for a couple of days while they were healing.  I realized that I haven't worn them on a regular basis in six or seven years.  Oh, the joy of pants just slipping off instead of fighting to unstick them from my calves! 

Shirt & Sweater - Old Navy, Jeans - Gap, Flats - Payless, Necklace - H&M, Bracelets - LOFT

My brain actually had a hardish time coming up with ways to wear flared jeans after all of these years, but I ultimately decided most of my regular combos worked just fine, hence chambray and a sweater.  

Of course, once the stitches came out I went right back to my trusted skinnies, because really, they're much easier to wear with boots.  And boots in the winter in Chicago are important for ensuring you don't end up with little feet popsicles.  But perhaps my comfy flare jeans will come back into play once Spring decides to roll around.  Have you found any older pieces in your wardrobe you want to start rocking again?


  1. I live in my chambray shirt and I love how you styled yours! xo, Julie

  2. haha, I feel the same when I am peeling of my skinnies every night. I love flared too! They look good with the flats. Happy Monday!

    1. definitely perfect for flats! i think it's supposed to be warm(ish) tomorrow so i might break them out again.

  3. I found a great pair of gray-ish jeans in my closet that I totally forgot I owned. I'm definitely going to try to wear them again soon. Love your necklace, by the way!
