Day Thirteen: Red Jeans & Mock Sweater



I’ve seen all the great outfit pins on Pinterest lately with the red jeans and pants. And I love the red jeans. I really do. I just wasn’t sure if I could pull them off. I mean, I’ll be honest here, I always try to camouflage my lower half. I played soccer for almost 2 decades of my life and I have thicker thighs and having babies gave me hips to match. Yay. But I put on my big girl panties and gave the red jeans a shot. 

over sized black & white sweater + red pants + black combat boots = fall/winter perfection :)

Inspiration Pin

 I love the sweater but I don’t have a black and white striped sweater so I had to improvise. I do love the black with the red though, it’s really striking. I really surprised myself because I love the red jeans. I tried several brands until I found one that I absolutely loved. I’m so glad I gave the red jeans a shot!



1. Red Skinny Jeans: H&M (sold out)- OPTION 1 & OPTION 2; bought for $19.99 on sale

2. Black & Gray Striped 2-in-1 sweater: Faded Glory for Walmart- HERE; bought for $13.94

3. Black Tall Boots: Zulily (not available)- OPTION 1 & OPTION 2; bought for $14.99

4. Red Statement Necklace: Walmart (not available online)- OPTION; bought for $5

I never used to shop for clothes at Walmart but I’ve noticed in the past year that they have some really cute stuff. Now I don’t expect it to last for years but I get tired of stuff so quickly that I only need it to last for a couple of seasons. The sweater is really soft and comfy and I might buy another one. I’ve also noticed how inexpensive the statement necklaces are at Walmart. I’ve added a bunch to my collection and at only $5 each I don’t feel guilty about buying all the colors.
