{fashion files} I forgot how to wear jeans

I work a lot.  And the social functions I do attend, they happen right after work.  So naturally I wear my business attire out and about.  All the time.  Now I must say...I have pretty cute work clothes, but still I'm always 'dressed up.'  

I'm moving back to the US at the beginning of the year and I'll be away from the traditional corporate environment for a little while.  Super exciting but, I kinda forgot how to put together casual outfits!  Especially ones that are still stylish.  Leggings, Uggs, and a sweater...that I can do any day.  But fall/winter appropriate, casual outfits designed around a fantastic pair of jeans...I seriously think I forgot!  Thankfully Pinterest is full of inspirational ideas to help me out! 



My favorite looks:

What are your must-have pieces to wear with jeans?

I'm also bad at wearing jeans, but I love these looks! Great reference to start putting some jeans based outfits together.

Mae said...

@Frances Joy, I'm glad they were helpful! it's nice to have a starting point!

Lindsay said...

The same thing happens to me with work v. play clothes... I also find that since I spend so much more of my 'awake' time in work clothes, I hesitate to spend much on anything that can't be worn to work, i.e. glitzy tops, crazy heels, etc.
This definitely inspired me to build more fun into my closet!

Mae said...

great, Lindsay! I'm glad it helped with some inspiration! let me know how it goes!

Bibi said...
