How are y’all this fine Wednesday? I’m definitely feeling the effects of too many half-nighters, a cold, allergies, and a swamping amount of work today. Just made myself a coffee+milk+frozen raspberry+ice shake and I’m feeling a lot better. πŸ˜€

I’m wearing pants today since I had to go to the Chiropractor’s this morning. He can adjust me in a skirt, but I have to do some weird contortions and I feel more comfortable in jeans. πŸ™‚

Shirt: Thrift store
Tank: Penny’s
Jacket: Sears
Capris: Old Navy
Flops: Sears (I just realized I switched my nice leather-look flip
flops for these to work in the garden and forgot to switch back for the
pictures. oh well.)

I went shopping on Monday and found some new things! This super-soft-and-comfy jacket I scored at Sears for $4 and the jean capris were on clearance at Old Navy for $16.

I love the capris, but they aren’t very slimming across my backside so I was glad to discover my new jacket covers the jeans enough to make them more flattering. πŸ™‚

As I was trying on pair after pair of jeans on Monday, I realized that the best fit-without-a-belt style for me was low-rise. They sit right above my hips and fit nicely on the back waist without gaping too bad. Maybe y’all already have this figured out, but don’t just discount low-rise jeans as being immodest next time you’re hunting; many of them actually aren’t low at all! πŸ™‚

Are y’all excited for the One Skirt | Three Days | Three Bloggers party this weekend?! I’m stoked! I think I’ve finally figured out which skirt to wear… it’s one I don’t think I’ve ever blogged.  I haven’t worn it since last May since its not very flattering so this will be a fun challenge! πŸ™‚

  1. I have a question about pants. What advice would you offer to keep your pants up when you bend over?
    Thanks, Britney

    1. That is hard! What I do is just as I squat or bend over, I pull my jeans up a little bit so they're tighter in the thighs and that gives more room to bend, if that makes sense. I also always wear a tight tank when I wear jeans so that I can pull it waaay down over the top of my jeans and help them stay up, keep the back from gaping, and covering up any other problems. πŸ™‚

  2. Hey, Olivia! I just wanted to pop in to say that you are doing a great job blogging! I read all your posts, though I seldom comment. I have especially enjoyed your Q&A posts. Keep up the good work!

  3. Super cute! I love your sweatshirt! ^^

    I hope your allergies get better! My whole family and most of my friends have been hit pretty bad by them this year, though I'm ok so far!


  4. Oh…such a nice outfit! (and I liked your flip-flops!) πŸ™‚ I know what you mean about the cold, allergies, half-nighters, and too much work! πŸ˜› I've been dealing with insane insomnia, a terrible cold, allergies….and trying to get all my school work done in time for the end of the year! Hope you feel better soon!

  5. Love your outfit! I have a similarly-draped cardi that I bought on clearance from Downeast & have been wondering how to style it now that it's warmer out. Your earrings are super pretty as well & I love the contrast of purple & green. Did your sister make those?

  6. Very cute!!!! Love the shirt and jacket! Love your hair! The shake sounds delicious!!!! We went shopping last night and I got a pair of black flats and a pair of sunglasses. I needed both badly!!!!
    Love, Katie

  7. You look so pretty! I love this outfit, this is something that you would probably find me wearing. And yes, low rise jeans? You can wear them. πŸ™‚ I typically just wear long shirts/tanks with them so they won't fall off of me.

  8. Low rise jeans always fit me better as well. I think it just depends on your body type. And like you said up there ^^ I usually wear super long tanks with pants to cover everything properly when I bend over! πŸ™‚

  9. YAY!!! Tomorrows the one skirt event thingy!! I'm super excited to see what awesome creative outfits you come out with! I love the purple jacket! Keep up the good work. πŸ™‚

    1. *gasp!* You're right! It is!! I need to get working…Olivia, is it all right if I wear a pair of pants? πŸ˜‰ I am just a jeans girl…if the weather's nice, I will look into wearing a skirt! πŸ˜€

    1. I've discovered that the whole trick to making jeans flattering is the pockets. Certain shapes, sizes, and decorations can make any rear look good. Unfortunately, those are really hard to find. πŸ˜› Yes, it is frustrating… thus why I wear skirts most of the time! πŸ™‚
