outfit post: 100% Thrifted (Neon + Camo)

There's no hiding it: Neon Sweater + Camo T-shirt + Wide Legged Jeans = 100% Thrifted.
My recent visit (ok, it was a month ago!) to the Goodwill has been gracing the pages of this blog lately. Boy, did those sweaters, coat and whatnot come in handy! Seen here for the first time: yours truly wearing wide-legged jeans. Seriously, I've been a devoted TEAM SKINNY JEAN player for years now, but this pair of stretchy creased denim pants really captured my heart. To be honest, I'm not sure what to wear with them or how to wear them so you may see some future fashion missteps. Bear With. Still gonna try. Today, they are paired with a vintage neon yellow men's sweater and a T-shirt found in the boy's department. The cardigan has been my constant companion (READ: been wearing it non-stop) for over 2 weeks now. And there's no sign of abatement. Expect to see more of it in the coming months; it's neon cheerfulness is my panacea for Seattle's cloudy grey days.

The pants were actually the first thing I noticed- those are such a nice fit on you! Unrelatedly, I had to google "animal print" at work today, I hit "images" and ten photos of you came up! Awesome!

I love this look! Wide-leg pants - they look great on you and I'm sure you'll become best friends. I love my wide legs now despite being intimidated at first. There is no such thing as fashion mistakes!

Vix said...

Perfection! I love the masculine tailoring of those trousers, the tough camo print and the girlie pop of yellow, they shouldn't work but they do, brilliantly!
Thanks for the mention, you are too kind to include me amongst such bloggging greats! xxx

Bella! Those jeans are really great on you....the fit is perfect! I know what you mean about finding something you love, but being unsure about how to style it. That happens to me all the time! :) Hugs! ~Serene

pastcaring said...

I think those trousers look fabulous, the shape and fit are brilliant on you. It's good to try something out of your usual zone sometimes, makes you look at yourself in a different way.
Love the yellow cardi too. xxx

I am loving the wide leg jeans on you! I never wear yellow, mostly because I have no idea what to wear it with, but you seem to have found the answer--that cardigan looks sooo good with the grey and black camo print.

Rudy said...

Thank you for your recommendation.I want to tell you True Religion Outlet store is also a good choice.

Shopping and the Goodwill or Sally Ann is among my favourite creative endeavours when time allows. Even more fun when done with a girlfriend. And fiscally responsible! As well as environmentally friendly!

Bonnie said...

I love you even more now that you are wearing camo. Camo is NOT just for hunters who sit in deer stands for 8 hours in freezing cold weather as ice drips down their backs from the trees. (Yeah, I've been there. It sucks.)
