Jeans and a sweater: it’s that most boring of all outfit choices, isn’t it?

This it the kind of combination that blog critics would dismiss as boring and “un-blogworthy”: the kind of outfit that requires absolutely zero thought, and which most of us have worn at some point or other: maybe not in this exact colour combination, granted (I know a lot of you fear The White Jean, and I hear you on that: it’s nothing short of a miracle that these ones got through the day unscathed, seriously…), but, well, you’ve all worn jeans-and-a-sweater, haven’t you? Thought so.

It’s also, however, one of the combinations I feel most comfortable, and most like “myself” in: which is why I keep on going back to, even although I know it’s not particularly interesting. And actually, I’ll be honest: this outfit DID require quite a bit of thought – in fact, it was the result of one of those long, “trying on” sessions, which left my closet looking like a whirlwind had gone through it, and me stamping my feet in a tempter, while saying, “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR! WHY DO I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR?!”

Of course, I DO have plenty of things to wear: it’s just that, in this particular case, I was doing that “fashion blogger” thing of trying to pick an outfit that would photograph well, and be visually interesting, rather than just picking the outfit I wanted to wear, and knew I’d feel good in – which was white skinny jeans and a sweater. And I DID wear it, and I DID feel good in it – and, even better, without any prior planning on my part, it just so happened to blend in really well with the backdrop, too.

There’s a lot to be said for that good ‘ol jeans-and-sweater combo, folks: don’t let anyone tell you differently…

  • I love this outfit on you! It looks great! It’s really nice to see a variety of different outfits, rather than just ‘blog worthy’ ones 🙂 I love to see both ‘wow, she looks great in that I could never pull that off or be brave enough to wear that’ and also ‘wow, I’m going to buy that outfit now’ – if you know what I mean!?xo
