are flared or bootcut jeans still ‘cool’?

Are they? It seems that boyfriend and skinny jeans are currently ruling the fashion roost, but I still like my bootcut jeans. And my thrifted military jacket thing. And I liked how my butt looked in my new ebay jeans.

I remember when ‘flared’ jeans first became cool, it was sometime between 1995 and 1996 and I was in 5th or 6th grade. I was happy to try these flared wonders. Before flared jeans, we wore tapered pants. They were pretty horrible. But trends change so quickly, I feel like I barely have time to enjoy them before they’re swept away and replaced with something new.

Now it’s your turn to chime in…are bootcut jeans still ‘in’ or is wearing considered a fashion faux pas?

You helped my style this tunic!

A big THANK YOU to all my lovely blog friends (and non-blog friends) who chimed in with awesome suggestions on how to style this tunic.

This is just one of the suggestions that you made: wear the tunic with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, wedges, a bunch of bracelets, and a belt. The other way suggested (worn tucked into a skirt) I will wear another time and post those pictures as well.

This ‘experiment’ turned out really well. Be on the lookout for more posts asking for your stylish input.

Outfit details:
Top: embroidered cotton tunic, Victoria’s Secret, old
Bottoms: David Kahn super stretchy skinny jeans, ideeli clearance sale $30
Shoes: Lela Rose for Payless wedge, old

Not quite the BOHO look I was hoping for (I didn’t have any fringe), but close nonetheless.

Hope you liked this outfit and happy tuesday!

manic monday shoe find

I am a tried and true lover of all things nautical themed. These Sole Society wedges remind me very much of that theme, with the blue and white stripes and the knot. I can’t wait for spring… it’s almost here! These Wendi wedges would look great with a solid colored dress or maxi skirt and top.
