The Boyfriend Jean

Tonight TT and I went out and with all my brothers for Thai food.  Mmmm... for those of you in the fab city of Salt Lake, Thai Siam on State is where the good food is.  It's delish.  So fun.  Anyway, this outfit was majorly inspired by the Elaine at clothedmuch, she did a better rendition of this outfit.  But, what I LOVE about this piece, is the feeling I got by creating a NEW outfit, out of not new clothes. And it really is snowing in these pictures!

What I'm Wearing:
Coat: random find 2 yrs ago, at the Great Garb
White T: Victoria's Secret
Belt: TT's, brought home from his mission in Honduras.  *It's Iguana skin, eeek!*
 Jeans: True Religion (super baggy and super old, and therefore converted to "a boyfriend jean")

I feel like a ginormous weight was lifted from my shoulders today after going through all of my clothes.  Yes, I purged my closet.  I filled up 3 very heavy and very bulging garbage bags.  It felt so good.  Thank you so much Elaine for all your help and input!  So much appreciated.

Also, thanks to Gizelle for the blog award! She's given me the happy 101 blog award!  So, here are 10 things that make me happy.  NO particular order:
1. the Book of Mormon
2. knowing i had a good workout

3. spending time with TT
4. an ice cold Diet Coke with little tiny ice cubes

5. being with my family
6. taking pictures, making memories
7.  new mascara
8. disneyland
9. a defeated laundry pile
10. completing homework

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!

The feeling of a new outfit with old pieces is pretty good huh?
Wow - I wish it would snow. I've never been snowed on.
We're having thai tonight - we get it at least once a week we love it so much.. hehe.

Great post :)

I second the diet coke with tiny ice. I'd add a fresh lemon too!

You're so brave and so stylish, going for cropped jeans and bare ankles in snow! That's what I call fashion dedication. :)

1) You look so great in those jeans! Fun and chic outfit.
2) I think Thai is my favorite kind of food. You're making me hungry for panang curry...
3) Your photos look amazing with the snow coming down!
4) New mascara and a defeated laundry pile make my day too.

A diet coke sounds great right now! I want to know what you did with the 3 bags of clothes? Could I fit into anything you have? Maybe you should just dump my entire closet and go shopping with me. Sound fun?

Elaine said...

You are SO welcome! It was fun :) And thanks for all the clothes!! I feel like I went shopping and came back very successful! lol!
