Sixteen Candles

One thing I've learned so far from this round of the 30 for 30: I should have included one more pair of jeans. After looking at the recap of my first fifteen looks, I see clearly that my two pairs of jeans are my most-repeated items. Simple math could have helped me figure that out. Typically, I wear jeans on Fridays and Saturdays, and at least one other day of the week. So three out of seven days for thirty days means that I'm wearing jeans for at least twelve days total. So jeans should have made up about a third of my choices for bottoms, but they make up less than one fourth. So if you're tired of seeing the same two pairs of jeans over and over again, just blame my mathematical oversight.

If all of those fractions made your head spin, I apologize. But I'm married to a math teacher, so sometimes it rubs off on me a little. I just wish it would have rubbed off before I chose my clothes for the 30.

  1. Oh hon, don't fret. I actually kind of love seeing you mix up the jeans. As a girl who currently only owns two pairs of jeans, I can tell you that you are doing a far better job of mixing it up!
    I am a fan of that cardigan!

  2. No, not tired at all b/c I LOVE the jeans you have. They make me feel like there IS hope for well-fitting jeans. :)

    And I figured if ANYONE picked up on my title, it would be you :):)

  3. Love love love this outfit! I love jean-outfits :) I'm trying to wear more skirts and actually I've found that in the winter with rain I don't want to wear jeans so much, it's weird!

  4. i actually always wear the same 2 pairs of jeans anyway lol

  9. I don't mind seeing those beauties a few more times, the jeans look great on you. As does that adorable cardigan, love that gorg colour + loving the way that you wrapped your belt! xx veronika

  10. Don't be silly! No one's judging you here. I wear my jeggings all the time, too, and no one complains (or notices!).

    If you want to mix it up, maybe try wearing a casual skirt on the weekends. I did that this weekend and it worked out nicely :)

  11. I want those jeans. you better be careful. All your posts make me want to come and raid your closet, haha.

  12. Only three days a week? I'm think I'm lookin' at about 6. HAHA

  13. No issue with the jeans issue here - ha! I put in only one pair, but it hasn't been much of an issue, or has it? I think my cargos are more of an issue for me - ha!


I really appreciate hearing from you!
