Casual Saturday Fashion & Your Weekly Round Up

June 30, 2012·

You guys, I love social media. I posted this picture on Instagram last week and said “VEST OR NO VEST”? Sometimes I am super indecisive when I get dressed and sometimes something as simple as adding or removing a VEST can make or break an outfit.

So, I posted this picture and the question to the Instagram / Twitter / Facebook universe and oh boy did I get a TON of responses:

vest or no vest? - still being [molly]And consensus was? VEST.

I would be lying to you if I said I wore this outfit this week. It is TOO DANG HOT to be wearing something like this right now… BUT, I did wear this LAST week when it was a little cooler.

Some days I just don’t want to get “fancy” or “trendy” when I get dressed. I want to wear my favorite jeans, my favorite red Sauconys, and an old t-shirt. And then I might want to fancy it up with a vest.

Sue me.

But seriously. These jeans? Thems real old these jeans. I wanted these Dojo Seven Jeans forever when I was in high school. But I didn’t exactly have $180 to spend on jeans. So I stalked eBay and bought these puppies for $12 in 2002.

Since then, I have patched them not once, not thrice, not four times… but SIX times. I have patched these jeans SIX times.

Okay, I lied, I didn’t tell her to keep quiet, I just told her to patch them. They’re my favorite jeans ever and I refuse to get rid of them.

And these red tennis shoes? They’re 10+ year old Sauconys and I love them. I know tennis shoes aren’t “trendy” but guess what? I could care less. I LOVE THEM. They’re so comfortable. And BRIGHT RED. I mean, how fun are they? 🙂 Sometimes a girl just wants to wear her favorite jeans, her favorite tennies, and a t-shirt.
