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!

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!

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