Bootcut Boot Camp Day 3: Fun With Grunge

Just running errands. Oil change for the car. Chiropractor. Probably some returns and maybe a pop in to see a tailor about slimming my trench coat sleeves. The jacket was an afterthought, since I thought it was warmer outside than it really was, but I'm okay with how it turned out. It's been a long time since I busted out a flannel!

ETA a closeup pic of my Japanese double-waistband jeans! These were everywhere when I visited Japan in 2006. I immediately knew I wanted a pair and checked the price on every pair I saw. Most were $200+ (bank breaking for me back then), but I finally found these for about $30. They are DH's absolute favorite jeans of mine; he thinks the are the most flattering thing in my closet and even supports the idea of having a copy made in a dark wash someday.

    Ohh my kind of spring look! There is something perfect about pairing blue flannels with bootcut jeans, isn't there? Must keep this in mind for when it warms up! Also totally still digging your silver snakeskin bag :D

    (Aside #1: I was gone last week, Bootcut boot camp == wearing bootcuts for a week?)

    (Aside #2: When you say "double-waist jeans"... do you mean it has two waist bands? I must see details!!)

    The colors are so vibrant on your flannel shirt. You look great.

    BJ, your wish will be granted this Thursday! I'm so excited. I'm going to combine these three for a chunky, almost-blunt, long, fringy, "twixie" (somewhere between my bob and a traditional pixie. :)

    Added a pic and short story about the jeans up top!
