woodsy chic

What I’m Wearing…

* Cozy blue knit sweater I found at the Bass outlet store up here when I was shopping for my mom
* Tweed Coat is my DIY Sleeveless Coat from a few years ago
* Old Levi’s 501s
* Cognac suede boots by Sam Edelman
* Square tortoise shell sunglasses by Stella McCartney

I’ve had these jeans since the ’90s. They remain folded neatly in my denim pile [usually near the bottom] because they fit fabulously and you just don’t find vintage 501s that fit fabulously that often. They were, in fact, my mom’s boyfriend’s way back when… and when the knees ripped out, he gave them to me… and twenty years later [WOW I CAN’T BELIEVE I JUST SAID THAT] I’m wearing them again. If he only knew, lol.

There’s something about a great pair of men’s Levi’s 501 jeans that can fit so perfectly and be so flattering in certain eras and then not at all in others. The waist on these comes up pretty high, but not ridiculous. In fact, the waist actually fits snugly, not muffin top territory, but just right, while the rest of the jeans fit rather loosely. I tend to gain/loose 5lbs pretty regularly. If I’m anxious or stressed out, I tend to be 5lbs under {which is probably the weight I should always stay at} but when I’m unworried and happy, I eat more, thus 5lbs over. And in that small lb area, these jeans can either fit comfortably or be a total nightmare. Today, they feel alright 😉

    Holy crap. There is nothing I don’t love about this outfit. So perfect. What I wouldn’t do to find those perfect 501s. Omg. Plus I have the perfect coat to diy this! I’ve had the coat for years & the sleeves have always been a tiny bit too short. It even has a removable fur collar! I can’t wait!

    Love the color of your sweater. Nothing better (almost) than comfortable jeans! Great looking outfit.

    Hi Maegan,

    So glad you are getting back to your outfit posts. That’s what got me coming back to your blog initially and that’s what’s keeping me around now. You have great style!

    Maegan! This has absolutely. Lathing to do with your post- except that I think you are wonderful and chose thing one for my plea.
    PLEASE pull some strings with your croc people, and have them bring back the all cast luxe duck boot!! I’ve been waiting months for them to be restocked and come to find out they DISCONTINUED them!! My freezing moccasin covered feet can’t handle our Canadian snow. Could you request they make one more gorgeous boot, size 9 ?

    You are the reason I came to love them in the first place.

    Sigh.
