Dressing up jeans and a T-shirt

A discovery I made during the past year. I hate skinny jeans. I mean hate them. Why am I pulling myself into a denim form of a legging that I really just want to not wear as soon as I’m wearing them? Hence my movement into wearing the jeans I actually am fine with, which are straight leg or bootcut. Straight leg I can do with them being a bit shorter, but bootcut have to hit 1/4 inch above the ground and no more. But, I digress as this post is not about bootcut jeans. It’s about straight leg jeans and how I wore them this week:


And yes, I put on shoes! As if I am going out. Which I am not. But if I were, I would wear these. All of these pieces I’ve had for awhile, so here’s the closest match for jeans, cardigan, T-shirt, and shoes. And, I’m also sharing my favorite red lipstick:

This is NARS Cruella. Listen. I don’t usually wear red lipsticks because I find them to be too high maintenance, but this one actually wears well. It’s going to transfer some:

However, for me, it really only came off noticeably if I ate oily food, or put a gloss over it. If you can handle wearing it matte, it’ll stay for a good while. I reapplied once after lunch, and it lasted through the end of the day and a 3 mile run, where it was boiling hot out. My other suggestion would be to get a lip liner to line the outside to prevent feathering.
