|YSL Montaig 105 Nero Sandals, Miu Miu Black Tote|
New York, NY
What made this outfit work was the accessories. I bought my first pair of boyfriend jeans this past week, and they're the most comfortable pair of jeans that I've ever worn. They're the AG Ex-Boyfriend jeans aged for 9 years. I opted for these instead of the more distressed styles because I don't have a good track record with ripped jeans. I usually end up making the rips much bigger through carelessness, biking, and life. They feel like wearing pajama pants. Boys are so lucky that they get to wear jeans that feel like this.
I could have gone very country with these jeans, which I may do next. However, I wanted to imitate the queen of boyfriend jeans - no not Katie Holmes -- Janet Jackson. And she is known for her rocking urban looks.
I don't know how, but I actually think these things are a little flattering. I don't know if I'll wear them on a date, but I definitely think they can look great if you pull them off right. Though in terms of looking as good as Janet Jackson, my attempts were mostly in vain. The thing that looks the best is my bag, a wonderful purchase from Saks a few years ago. It can hold my laptop, camera and all of my gym gear. Here is my wonderful bag montage.
