Style: Ripped Jeans & A Puffy Vest




jeans: old navy // vest: old navy // shirt: old navy // boots: sam edelman
// tassel necklace: target (similar) // bead necklace: vintage (similar) // 

An alternate title to this blog post would be "when I wore the same outfit last week and tried to pretend it was different." The truth is out: I mostly wear the same clothes over and over. I mean, isn't that kind of the point of clothes? As much as I love seeing cute/trendy/new outfits on other bloggers I just can't keep up. And that's fine. That was really the whole point of me starting a blog - to figure out new ways to wear my old clothes. So if you like seeing a normal-looking, late-twenties (reeaaaalllly late) lady wear the same clothes over and over, you've come to the right place. 

Also, I would say these jeans have been my most worn this fall/winter. A few years ago I would have scoffed at buying pants with holes already in them, but I am trying to embrace my (quickly) fading youth and go edgy. I mean, if a green puffy vest doesn't scream edgy, what does?

  1. I did that whole turn you hangers backward thing to see what you really wear. Yeah, I only wear like six shirts out of my closet.

    I think I own 1 pair of pants that isn't ripped. Is that okay at almost 30?

  2. It's funny you talk about wearing the same thing over and over. I feel like all of us have our favorite pieces we keep reaching for and tends to be those we pack. I've been very intrigued by a capsule wardrobe where you just have a small amount of clothes to wear pure season. Everything matches and all of it can go together. I'm not there yet but slowly working on it!

  3. I love this outfit and love that you're rocking the distressed denim. I've yet to find a pair that fits me well otherwise I'd be doing the same. Maybe that'll be a post pregnancy goal of mine.

  4. hahaha that is definitely the point of clothes! i have come to embrace that part of me, and everything in my closet is very similar. i'd rather that instead of only wearing 10 things out of 100.

  5. I love this outfit! Now you have me missing weather that would let me wear a puffy vest over a long sleeved shirt.

  6. I can relate to this entire post. Except that I spent most of my early/mid 20s trying to look like an adult, which meant dressing older than I was. And now that I'm pushing 30, I want to dress like I'm in my early 20s.

  7. That's exactly what I want to see! I do not relate at all to bloggers who never repeat clothing items. Plus, this is a pretty cute outfit. I am not generally a fan of vests on myself, but there's a few of you who get me seriously thinking I should try one...

  8. I see this outfit and I am so glad I never donated my green puffy vest. I love how it looks here! I have a really hard time when I see outfit after outfit on bloggers with all new items and never see those items again. Remix away Ashley!

  10. LOVE seeing your pretty face and cute outfits pop up in my feed! :) Totally wish I hadn't donated my green puffy vest to Goodwill last winter. :(

  11. I think it's awesome that you find ways to wear the same things over and over but in different ways. I need to work more on buying less other stuff and reworking what I currently have. I love the distressing on the jeans. You look awesome!

  12. we all wear the same things over and over, so don't feel bad for doing so! I'm trying to wear more of my wardrobe to justify keeping it all, as I find myself going for the same favourites over and over too.

  14. I love this! Mom chic and totally allowed on repeat in my book. At about the same age and life stage I'm into distressing for the first time in my life for the same reasons :)

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
