No, I’m not a double D cup, but I’m wearing double denim! I bought these jeggings in the sale for like 7 euro at New Look, and I immediately had all kinds of ideas as to how to style them: with long and loose fitting tops! Airy blouses in summer, plaid or layers in fall and big, chunky sweaters in winter. I didn’t like the whole jeggings trend at first, but after seeing calivintage rocking the look multiple times on her personal blog, I was won over by her gamine, retro take on the jeggings. VERY me, totally inspirational. And then I thought of my new style icon, Alexa Chung. Yes, apparently I’m quite a late bloomer when it comes to realizing something/someone is actually awesome. Maybe I just need the time to figure out if I REALLY like something instead of just jumping on the bandwagon? Anyway, I just realized that Alexa Chung is awesome. I love her hair, I love her Chloe Sevigny esque careless girl vibe and I love her weird shoes. I would love to see her eat a sandwich or two though, but that is her own beeswax. I remembered seeing her once in a denim shirt – very tight denim pants combo, so I just swapped the pants for jeggings et voila! These shoes were perfect with the look: clunky, high and kind of a statement shoe. I love em dearly.
So that’s it! Hope you enjoy the look, and thanks so so much to all the commenters and new fans!
