Wear & Share: Casual Date Night

cool header-001Hey Guys & Dolls!
Last Saturday Mikey and I had a low key day: we slept in and Mikey woke me up to a surprise package from Torrid- their new boyfriend jean. Excited as a kid of Christmas I tore open the package and discovered they fit perfectly- both comfortable and cute in a  laid back kind of way. Until now I never embraced the “boyfriend jean” trend. I was worried that boyfriend jeans would make me look…dumpy. I remember wearing loose fitting men’s jeans all through high school because I thought I was unattractive and wanted to hide. But these are not the frumpy jeans of my youth! True, they have the lighter wash and holes I loved as a 90’s kid, but these are definitely cut for women- they hug here and there, but are loose and comfortable- I even got a “oooh cute butt” comment from Mikey. I also loved the rolled cuffs- perfect for showing off your shoes, your ankles… or roll them down -whatever.

I decided to wear them the rest of our laid-back day: doing the weekly grocery shopping, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and general lazing around…it was a perfect day. In the evening we realized we should probably eat dinner, so Mikey and I went out for sushi and a movie- one of those casual last minute dates that are sometimes much more fun than planned formal dates! We hit up Nama (nom nom, sushi and gyoza) and then saw “The Worlds End” which was quite good (I love LOVE Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.) Anyway, in between dinner and  the movie we shot this quick outfit wear & share video for you in the parking lot. It was like guerrilla fashion vlogging- cars coming & going, people looking at us weird, god knows what they thought we were doing… it was fun!

    I have been looking at that top on ASOS for ages! Now I must get it, it looks fab on you! Cora, I just wanted to say hi and thanks for being you. You are so beautiful and are a role model for me. You have helped me love myself as a plus size girl (and do great makeup of course) so I am very grateful. Lots of love from Australia!
