Real People, Real Style: Anne
Anne, in Gap t-shirt, Citizens for Humanity sleeveless cowl neck fleece shirt, and Paige Premium Denim jeans in the Rising Glen style
Anne describes her outfit this way:
I'm a basics kind of girl (okay ... "woman," I'm 30, I should just accept it) and prefer to run after my munchkins in jeans and knit tops of all hefts and weights. I like to keep my bits covered, too. What I like about this outfit is that it is - to me - an example of balance. It's still basic and comfy, but not too frumpy nor too trendy. The cowl neck "thingy" is a twist on a sweater vest/sweatshirt, the Gap t-shirt was $2.97 on clearance and the jeans? Well, those were a splurge, but they make anything I wear with them look one notch better than usual (and make my butt look gooooooood) ... and that's worth the price tag right there. They also have a 9.5" rise and still look sexy, which is rare in the designer jean underworld.
My favorite thing about this outfit (other than the jeans, which are FANTASTIC) is the vest, which Anne described as "Matrix-meets-sweater-vest." I like that she has added that unexpected extra layer, which really kicks the whole jeans-and-a-tee outfit up a notch. She could also wear that sweater with a short sleeved tee or by itself, under a great jacket. Anne is living proof that being a mom doesn't mean giving up your style and flair, and that comfortable, practical clothes can still be funky and stylish.
Anne is currently trying to find a spring jacket; you can see her current choices here.
