One month later to showcase 2 outfits!

I will officially publish this blog and start posting the link!  Hopefully I will get back into HTML and create an actual layout.  I have one pair of jeans, two places I wore them to with different environments.  The jeans I am showcasing are from Crossroads Trading Co.  All the clothes are second hand clothes and there are some amazing things here for a fraction of the retail price.  The jeans are by William Rast and usually go for $180+.  When I tried them on, they felt like a perfect fit.  I could never afford paying $180 for a pair of jeans but I can see why they are worth that much!  I absolutely love the feel and fit of the jeans.  Crossroads Trading retailed them at their price of $34.99 but they were on sale for "half off."  I bought these jeans in what I found as perfect condition for a final price of $17.50!

I first wore these jeans on my weekend vacation in Seattle with my best friend, Alex!  Seattle had some light rain and a cool temperature of about 57.  The jeans are a simple dark blue skinny jean style.  The top is a long 100% cotton brown tank with a black boyfriend cardigan.  I topped it off with a cream beret.  A very simple and comfortable outfit to make my away around Downtown Seattle.  The city's style felt very casual and almost very hipster for my taste but the outfit blended easily and worked well with the misty weather!  The beret is made of very soft material and the black cardigan displays Victoria's Secret "LOVE PINK" in studs on the back of the cardigan.  The tank is made of ultra soft cotton and feels so light-weight when wearing it.

The second time I wore these jeans was on a beach date with my boyfriend, Dan!  It was a nice warm day in Manhattan beach.  We just did the whole "long walks on the beach" sort of thing and I rolled up the jeans in 2 cuffs so my jeans wouldn't get wet; failed on that part!  I wore the jeans with a white tunic top with a beaded and gold round stud design.  I also wore a black cardigan with this outfit but not a bulky boyfriend cardigan but a shorter 3/4 sleeve light cardigan with gold buttons.  I decided to also show off my every day purse!  I love my Junior Drake purse and take it with me almost everywhere.
