Denim is a favorite fabric for pants, jackets, and shirts, so I wear jeans several times weekly. The styling options are unlimited, and they are very comfortable. Sharing how I styled jeans this week might be helpful. The temperature was around seventy degrees, with mostly sun each day.
I avoid jeans with more than 2% elastane since too much stretch looks sloppy after a few hours. The slight bootcut or flare style is most flattering for my shape. Structured fabrics, such as denim, are much more flattering on my legs than pants made from soft, thin, supple materials.
The Tuesday look includes a pale blue button-up shirt with a merino wool sweater tied around my shoulders. The boots, bag, and belt are a rich cognac color. My mother had to run a few errands, including grocery shopping.
I had skin cancer a few years ago; thus, getting checked every few months is part of my routine. So on Wednesday, I had a dermatology appointment. I wore a jacket from White House Black Market last year and the new pumps I recently showed you. The no-show socks are here. (Sheec has a style of socks for every shoe!)
The young receptionist seemed to take delight in my outfit. She greeted me with a big smile and complimented how I looked twice. However, when I turned to take my seat in the waiting room, I noticed that, without fail, the other fifteen or so women waiting for their turn were wearing a uniform of sneakers, leggings, and a sweatshirt.
I visited Ulta in the mall to restock my brow pens here. This is the only brow filler I use now. It looks natural if you use a light hand, and it stays in place. I get the Cool Grey color, which blends well with my hair.
Another item from Ulta I always have in my arsenal is Nail Envy. This is the best strengthener I’ve found for my splitting nails.
The afternoon sun was so warm I walked for a couple of miles without a jacket on Thursday. Leggings and a long tank are sometimes my choices for exercising. There are many ways to wear leggings if you wish. For example, if I traveled, I could also elevate this base to save space in my carry-on bag.
I can hear your protests from here! However, the shoes are very comfortable even though they are sky-high. I usually wear them with long, loose-fitting black pants, so they don’t show.
