Atypical Me

Whenever I wear jeans it is the opposite of a "throw it on a go" wardrobe choice. I intentionally wear them on days when an activity calls for them or I want to feel a little anonymous or normal. I find it much more easy and comfortable to fling a dress on and trot out the door. However, I've worn jeans a couple of times lately and I thought I would do a little showcase of atypical style for me.

Also, I've been experimenting with braids lately...it is definitely a learning process; I think I should invest in some hair product like spray or gel to help me keep them intact! My daily hair process is to air dry and then brush it...really lazy. I really like this style, but it felt a little too saccharine to wear it with a dress. Although, by the time summer rolls around I'll probably be comfortable looking Heidi-esque. I'm quite ready for summer too, it felt like spring on this particular day and I swear it was the first time I saw the sun in weeks. My outfit pictures from last week and even Monday were taken either in a brief break from rain, or while getting rained on!
Outfit details:
Neneee cardigan
Current Elliot jeans
DIY shoes
I don't go out often, but here's a typical "night out" look for those times that I do. Miniature heels or flats are a must because I love to dance and I'd rather be comfortable with a dash of sparkle than over-the-top. I've been told I dance well and I've been told I dance like a Charlie Brown character and I'm still trying to figure out if those are mutually exclusive!
Outfit details:
In4mation shirt, gift from Tofu's Closet
sequin skirt from some shop in Greece

Bloch wedges via Giltfuse

  4. i love the going out outfit, simple yet really unique.

  5. Gasp! The Clothes Horse in jeans?? It's atypical, but with that jester cardigan and braids, it's a unique ensemble-- I love it.

    And of course dancing like a Snoopy character is correlated with dancing well! :)

  6. Both outfits are very stylish - I have to say I think you look great in jeans! I like how you still made your look so unique with the beautiful hairdo.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, jeans fits you well :)
    But I like more your sequin skirt outfit, with this shirt and nylons is absolutely great :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I always love the little gif images you make.

    The bottom outfit is wonderful, by the way.

  9. love the atypical outfit! that field your in is gorgeous :)

  10. How great to see you in both jeans and that night-time party outfit! Love the sequined skirt! Is it just me, or does it have a somewhat draped effect?

    I almost never wear jeans, but I was thinking about it yesterday - and this is great inspiration. Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Your hair is awesome! I love the black skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I used to wear jeans loads but I only really do now when I'm mooching about at home (like today!) as it's very chilly. I'm a little bit in love with that cardigan! And the going out look, love the sparkle. I went out the other night just for a quick drink and it was freezing and pouring with rain so I wore a skirt but layered up and wore my fake fur coat....only to find all the girls that were out were in teeny tiny bodycon dresses with no tights, no coats.. Ok, I must be getting old and sensible but blimey!
    Anyway, I wear flats or small heels out too so I can dance without looking like I'm in danger of toppling.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You in jeans! That's a.. frist? Second? But it's good :) love the braids and love the effect on the going-out pictures :D

    ReplyDelete
  14. Your braids look adorable! Did you use the tutorial I posted? And yes, hairspray helps. I'm all about the Aquanet when it comes to braids!

  15. I like your look with the jeans...those are the perfect shade and style, too!

    Your sequin skirt is perfect, and the shoes look lovely!

  17. I love your braids! They make me wish I had long hair again.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Haha! You wouldn't think is weird to see someone in jeans.I think is good not wearing jeans all the time.I personally love your style.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your braids I think they came out great. I also and head over heel in love with the picture of you and the grass blowing around ever so sweetly.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love the studded detail on your jeans, as well as the Bloch wedges!

  21. it's really cool to see you in your more atypical outfits! i think you look great in jeans... and that sequin skirt is fantastic! your hair came out great too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. i dont really wear jeans either...unless if the activity calls for it like you said. theres a lot more coordination and time that goes into an outfit with jeans whereas a dress you put on and just emblellish. my friends always ask me if i even own jeans haha!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great cardigan! You are cute with a braid too and that gif is so nice!

    Peace and love!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, I think it was a good choice to not wear the 'Heidi-do' with a dress :) It would have been cute, but I like it this way more.! I also like your going out outfit. It looks super comfy and fun to wear. Thanks for sharing. :D

  26. some days its nice to wear jeans, but I agree, its totally easier to wear a dress. but on chilly days I'll be darned if I can barely get up to even fathom trying to look cute. I'll be going to zara today to rummage through their sale and find some cute pants instead of jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I adore both looks and how they're so atypical of your normal style.

    It's fun to mix things up!

    Gorgeous gif with the grass.

  28. I rarely wear jeans, but I'm wearing them today to travel. You look lovely with the braids(another of my recent loves) and your going outfit is unexpected and lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those jeans look great on you! That graphic t-shirt is awesome, and it definitely makes the outfit more than just "jeans and a t-shirt". Love it!

  30. I LOVE how Charlie Brown characters dance! haha

  31. I just love everything you're wearing & those pictures so beautiful...

    ReplyDelete
  32. awesome post! The milk-maid brains have been making an apperance on quite a few blogs lately, they are super cute! It's nice to see a post for jeans too, I have trouble with jeans, either they feel too boring, or the fit is usually off. Your going out clothes look similar to what mine usually are, and dancing is always fun!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Makes me wish I had enough hair to braid!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, the motion blur is terrific. You make me want to be brave enough to wear red lipstick. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm really loving the braids and seeing your hair like that makes me wish mine was long enough to give it a try, hopefully by the summer it will be!

    ReplyDelete
  36. love the braids, it fits you so well!
    and on my gosh- i love you second outfit set, perfection!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your hairstyle! I wish I could get my hair to cooperate so I could actually braid it, let alone do a Heidi style. You look great in jeans, it's definitely different but still you! That cardigan is too awesome for words! And you look so chic for a night on the town! I actually find myself dancing like Peanuts characters too sometimes; there was this one dance in one of the movies, either the Christmas or Thanksgiving one, where you kind of bob back and forth.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love that hair style, it really suits you. I wish I could do mine like that, but I can only just manage to do a straight braid down my back and even that looks dodgy.
    Lovely blog, have a great day x

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jeans can be so hard. I always feel so sloppy in them. You look super cute and casual. Way to pull them off!

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's nice to see people's night outfits- I should do it more often, too, since that is when I get to play the most. And I feel you with the jeans- I feel like I have to be a lot more careful with how I accessorize and what shirts I wear etc because the jeans tend to be forgotten in the overall look. That cardigan is really fun and I love your braids. I plan on doing that when it gets hot as well, to get it off my neck and I don't much care for a ponytail.

  44. I love the braids! It's such a surprise to see you in jeans, but I think you look really cute.

  45. Heya, I've nominated you for the 'Gorgeous blogger' award. I think you style is so cute, and really thought out! ^_^

  46. I know exactly what you mean about the jeans. I feel much more comfortable and natural wearing a dress or skirt any day. But I will put on jeans if it's practical or if I'm trying to blend in.

    Love the braids... and you look great in jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Peanuts gang is a happy dance kind of group- maybe it's that.
    Love your hair, so lovely.

  48. You look great! I love the t-shirts in both looks. Coincidentally, I just bought a new pair of jeans this week! I haven't worn jeans "regularly" (read: more than once a year) in years, but these might change that--I love them so. I still feel like I'm wearing more of a costume in jeans than anything else though...
    Awesome sequin skirt as well! xo

    ReplyDelete
  49. it's kind of surreal to see you in jeans! haha.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just started my first interior design internship, in which Fridays are jeans day. I *never* wear jeans, but last Friday I did, because I didn't want everyone saying "You know, you can wear jeans on Fridays..." That would've gotten old fast. I know what you mean about the anonymous thing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. top outfit is nice of course but i LOVE the bottom combination!
    i dont usually comment your blog so it kinda shows how much i love these outfits to make the effort :)
    cutee blog you got going on here x

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lovely as always, wish I could make jeans look this stylish.

    And I have to second the comment that it's kind of surreal to see you in jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I loooove the Heidi braids! I used to do that all the time when I had hair. I do really miss that versatility.

    ReplyDelete
  54. i completely agree with you, i actually find it more difficult to wear jeans than dresses or skirts! and i seem to have a similar hair routine to yours - ie, not much of one at all. you look great in both outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Its neat seeing you wear outfits that you may not always were on the blog. Both styles are cute - I adore the cardigan. I tried the braid style last summer. Always had a hard time keeping them in place. I might give it another go, once it gets a little warmer - I need my long hair to keep me warm, lol. You look adorable as always!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Effortlessly chic, as always, in everything! Love those Betsey tights - they are just too adorable! x

    ReplyDelete
  57. I bought a sequin skirt on etsy and I have shortned a little, I have to wear it (I always forget it). Love your outfit with the jeans and the braids look so feminine with that outfit :) pretty !
    Me too I'm ready for summer and all those great summer dresses with no tights and cute sandals :):):)

    ReplyDelete
  58. That cardigan so motivates me to get knitting.And i like the touch of sparkle in the second outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I know exactly what you mean... a dress and tights seem so easy and comfortable; a jeans is a real decision (I also find the fabric often a bit hard. Bit of a wuss, that's me...) But the jeans suit you wonderfully. Sabine x

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love both outfits!!!!!!!!

    And that photograpy is awesome!!!!!!!!! at night! So rad!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love both looks! The braids are beyond stunning.

  66. Omg I've been told I dance like a Charlie Brown character too! We must take it as a compliment...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Awww! Love love love! You still look unique with the cardigan, haha :). But girl, that's a good thing!

    I must say that the braids are a magnificient look on you too!

    take care, teri at tintedseaglass.blogspot.com

  68. i think you look lovely in jeans and i love the way the braids spice things up.
    and that two-colored cardigan is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  69. you braided your hair! it looks great :] curious how you saved the sequins for night. was that intentional, 'cause i always have trouble wearing sparklies during the day, too.

    ReplyDelete
  70. i've always wanted to try braids! i'll bet you'll be rocking them all summer now! and it's so cool to see a night outfit, if i hadn't seen it i wouldn't have been able to imagine it but your outfit is so 'you'! i love the sequins with hearts

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love the sequined skirt and the adorable braids! Always experimenting with new trends !

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love the braid! I know what you mean about wearing jeans, but I really do love wearing them. I'm trying to break out of the habit though.

    ReplyDelete
  73. i'm like that with jeans too!

    Your little sequined skirt and stockings are quite lovely. Are those little hearts patterned on the stockings?

    One thing i've found when i braid my hair is that if it's a little damp it holds much more neatly, even once it has dried.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love those jeans! I've been looking for a pair like that for so long. Also, your night out outfit is way cute!

    ReplyDelete
  75. love your sequined skirt, great going out look. I always have a hard time with that category. and the charlie brown compliment is adorable. I tend to just bounce around haha

    ReplyDelete
  76. i fell like jeans are always a bit of a cop-out, even though i do wear them as a sort of throw-it-on and go outfit. i love the sequin skirt/tights combo you have going there though!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Love both of these looks! Your hair is so adorable here, I'm loving all of the braids I've been seeing lately.. adds romance to any outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I dont like wearing jeans either but I like how you still look put together while wearing them.

  79. Love the sparkly outfit!! It is so pretty, you look gorgeous with the red lips :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Even though, according to you it doesn't come naturally, you look great in jeans! And that sequined skirt is really fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I find it really hard to wear jeans, so I love to see how you've styled them here. The braid is gorgeous ! x

    ReplyDelete
  82. I feel exactly the same way about jeans. it takes so much more effort for me to wear them than a dress!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I really like your "night out" outfit, it's super cute but still looks really casual.

    And, if it helps, my husband and I incorporated the Charlie Brown dance into our first dance at the wedding. So...I vote that means you're a good dancer!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love the relaxed look... and especially that cardigan! amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. loveee these two outfits - not your usual choices but still completely "you"

    ReplyDelete
  86. love the hair in the first shoot!
    and in the second love the all outfit! like stylish, party,rocker adn femenine girl!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Lovely! Not just the outfit but also the photos of course! I always feel so repetitive commenting on your blog because I always say similar things (how awesome you are) but yeah, you're made of awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  88. even with the jeans- u have a very unique style!
    love the hair!

  92. Both outfits are amazing! And I love the braided hair. Can you please make a tutorial for that? I've been dying to try that style but can't find a decent tutorial. :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. i love those shoes. amazing outfit

    ReplyDelete
  94. i'm slowly getting to the point were grabbing a skirt is a lazy day outfit. It takes so much more creativity to do something new with jeans! I know I mentioned this a few comments ago, but the braids are fantastic. Hair crush! you almost make me wish I had long hair (which is really saying something)

  96. I need to start looking for more fields to take pictures in. THese pictures look beautiful. And I'm a hardcore fan of your braids...

    ReplyDelete
  97. The best part with the animated gif is not that the grass is moving in the wind, it's the fact that we can see you breathe! :)

    You look lovely in the braid. Maybe my hair is long enough for experiemntations like that again...

    ReplyDelete
  98. your hair process is still better than mine...I just air dry and DONE!

    Also, I've always wanted to dance like Charlie Brown. <3 but first, I need to learn how to simply dance...

  101. Girl,you look so beautiful with your braid!! Ohhh you should surely wear your hair like that more often:)

    I think I'm starting to want to do more things with my hair at the moment.

    You look so beautiful with the jeans and that 2 tone cardigan too.I'm wearing red nails at the moment too!

    And your night out outfit is really comfy and chic too.

    ReplyDelete
  102. ...now you have that "Despicable Me" song stuck in my head. Grr. :)

    I never would have pegged you for the Misfits tee shirt-type, but you totally pull it off. And the braids are great!

  103. Wait...that's not a Misfits shirt. Derp derp. Nevermind!

  106. love the two toned cardigan from the first set. i have problems with those braids too, they always tend to fall haphazardly off my head by the end of the day no matter how many bobby pins i use.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I think my hair is still to short to pull off that braid look - I think it looks super pretty. My hair routine is basically the same as yours, I am really lazy and I almost never wear product.

    Those wedges in the second outfit are extremely awesome. Such a bummer gilt doesn't ship internationally

    ReplyDelete
  108. Both of the outifts are lovely. I love your gif too, with the subtle movement.

    ReplyDelete
  109. a refreshing change. :) jeans are great! and yay! nenee cardigan! i love nenee. I've got my eyes set on her little pink high waisted shorts at her etsy store right now. Hopefully they'll still be there next week when I get paid! also, your hair braids are really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  110. God I love that cardigan. And what you did with your hair - unfortunately I chopped all of mine of recently, so it'll be a while til I can attempt to copy that look!!

  112. i love the braid, you really suit it. i tried it a year or so back but having black hair that is quite thin, you couldn't see it. made me look like a boy :(

    ReplyDelete
  113. i know exactly what you mean about wearing jeans. for me it requires much more thought then throwing on a dress or a skirt. I also only air dry and brush my hair!

    also, i love your going out look! i really enjoy the way the tee shirt tones the skirt and the shoes down a little while keeping the outfit eye catching and unique

    ReplyDelete
  114. You are adorable in both of these atypical outfits! I love your heidi braids with jeans.

    love, Jenny
    PS--I've been told by more than ten different people that I dance like a Charlie Brown character! I wonder we are dancing dopplegangers..

  115. Yeah, these 2 outfits are so atypical, but still so lovely! Love our braided hair.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Cute first look and rad second look! Love your milkmaid braid- I've been meaning to do that but I've been waiting for my hair to get longer! Love the t-shirt with the sequins- it's always a nice balance!

  121. Your braids turned out wonderful. I unsuccessfully tried to do a braid today and couldn't get it to not fall out. I think my hair has too many layers for braids. Oh well.

    Get some pomade if you get a hair product it tames those unruly flyaways without making your hair look greasy or stiff. This Aveda kind is my favorite when I can afford it.

    ReplyDelete
  122. you look so cute in jeans! it's such a different look for you! and you should do a tutorial on braids...i love how you did this one in your hair.

    (i am NOW just catching up on blogs...blahhh it's been too long!)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Oh, I had exactly the same hairstyle today! Wicked. It's weird to see you in jeans - in a good way though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love your "night out" outfit. I totally agree with you about being comfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  125. i think you look pretty in your denim and casual wear, just as you do in your skirts and dresses.
    the heidi braids are cute on you, too!

    some say you dance like a charlie brown character? i that's a huge compliment -- those guys have smooth moves, especially with the wild arm swings. did you know? they rave!

    I so want to try braids too, but I get so frustrated! So much hair!!!But yours inspires me to try at it again!
