Green Jeans.... Fifth times a charm!

Here it is Friday already and I had such a great time working on my fashion last week that I decided to make an effort to think out of the box at least one day a week in regards to getting dressed. It's no shock that I LOVE clothes! But lately, the hustle and bustle of life has left me dreading getting dressed. My closet is a wreck, I can't find anything to wear, it's a vicious cycle.

Since it worked so well last week, I turned to the internets for some help. I am starting to think that my problem was too many choices.... so I narrowed it down to one clothing item I wanted to wear and simply did a Google search. This week's choice was the green skinny jeans. I pulled them out of the mess that I call a closet and got too searching. Open up google, type in green skinny jeans outfit and I was off!

I was on the search for a more casual outfit this week and two options jumped out at me instantly.



I started with the black option... I felt certain that I would love this. Black is slimming right? And it's a staple in my wardrobe. Plus, it's safe! 

Green skinny jeans, black shirt, ivory jacket, animal print flats, & necklace.... it should be love but it's just not! I think that I needed to follow the inspiration and go with black heels and a less structured jacket. Then it might have been love!

I was on to the second look but I did not have the khaki shirt so I decided to try a gray shirt. I was shocked that I preferred it to the black. Still not a wow but much better!

I had to throw this in for my sis... I always do a little head tilt when analyzing outfits!

Duh... I was missing the scarf from the inspiration shot. So much better! 
But now need to switch out the shoes.

Yellow flats. Much better than the animal print with the scarf!


I should have just followed the inspiration from the start! I am shocked at how much thinner the ivory top makes me look. Would have never guessed it! 

We have a winner and I hope you enjoyed seeing a visual demonstration of why my closet floor is covered in clothes! (that was especially for the hubs!)

    1. Thanks! They were a great find at Forever 21 since I was unsure how much I would wear them! The scarf is actually a metallic gold and has been a great closet addition also from F21!
