The Basics of a Simple Outfit

denim-red-lips-outfit-05I’m going back to my style blogging roots with a simple outfit today.

I’ve been out of the jean scene for a long time. I had bought a pair or two after losing weight 2+ years ago but I just never loved the way they fit me and retired myself to the fact that I would live out my years in leggings because they fit my shape better.

But recently I got it in my head that I should find pants that fit my new body and I just happened to find some great jeans online (!) and took a chance on them. Thank God for that because now I can bug you guys with denim-on-denim outfits again!

    Hi Hannah! You look pretty. I love the pop of red lips in this casual outfit. I’m just curious. You look so tall. What’s your height? 🙂

    Looking forward to see more of your posts. Do you have an instagram account? Maybe we could follow each other. Let me know by leaving a comment on my blog or sending me a request. I’ll follow back 🙂 Thanks!

    Have a nice day!


    • Hey Shaira! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I am 5’7″ tall. So I’ve got some height on me! lol

      And I am on instagram as @hannah_rupp. 🙂

    I need to find a pair of jeans that make me realize jeans aren’t the worst! I don’t think I’ve worn pants in six or so years! What a feeling! These look wonderful on you and make you look SO tall!

    • Thanks, Jessica! Maybe ’cause I am a little tall? I’m 5’7″ I guess I’m on the cusp of tall.

      My sister is petite like you (she’s 5′) and swears by jeans from Delia’s. Apparently they’re one of the few brands that makes a true short inseam? Of course now they’re out of business.. but will be back this fall. I don’t know. It’s all so confusing right now!

    The quest for the perfect jeans is neverending in my case. So far, my favorite pair of jeans has been my maternity jeans, which just sprouted a hole in the crotch so I have to go searching all over again. Regular jeans… low rise shows off my undies in the back, high rise squishes my belly weird, any rise has a gap because of my hip-waist ratio, and maternity jeans take care of that since they’re elastic from the hip to the waist. Which is the best thing ever.
    Once I pop this baby out, though, I’m going to search for some high-rise jeans (like, retro ones). Because I think those would work better.

    Those look fantastic on you! Isn’t it awesome to finally find pants that work?

    • I’m also hunting for a pair of retro inspired high rise jeans so if you find some, let me know. I found a true vintage pair, probably ’70s, and while the fit is spot on, they have no stretch so I basically can’t move in them. (Hey, I only paid less than $2 at a thrift store so I’m not out much!)

      But anyways, I like my jeans like I like my leggings, extra stretchy! haha

    I love this! That coat is definitely something I’ve been wanting to invest in but I can’t seem to find anything for a good price.

    • I know what you mean! I had this sort of coat in mind and was willing to drop $$$ on it if I could find it online but never did. I guess the thrifting gods were looking out for me. 😉

  • I know it’s a little controversial, but I absolutely love wearing double denim!
