How to Wear DIY: Everyday... DIY mended jeans
So, if you have ever wondered how to mend the holes in your jeans--well, really, if you've ever wondered how to mend holes in jeans and still wear them and look normal!, I hope I can be of service. For a weekend day of perusing Powell's (Portland's amazing bookstore), deli lunch at Whole Foods, and two simple birthday celebrations!, I felt great in these jeans with a few other faves, new and old.
And thank you, Powell's garage (one of the most terrifying places to drive ever), for the background. ;)
Coat: American Eagle via Marshalls. Sweater: Marshalls. Bag: Old Navy. Boots: Target via Goodwill.
What makes this outfit for me is the "S" initial necklace and new tortoiseshell watch--both gifts to myself right before Christmas. 'Course you can't really see them in these pics, which were rushed so forgot to do close-ups!, but here they are on my Instagram. The necklace is my cheapie version of the stylish monogram necklaces that have been so big lately... those are spendy, though, like $60+!! I was so excited to find this one on sale for $4.99 at Kohl's when I ran in on Christmas Eve Eve. They're that price online, too, and come in silver or gold like mine.
So I guess the moral is... how to look chic in mended, holey jeans? Pair with new and old fave pieces and enjoy the weekend!!
