Outfit

Last Friday a very crazy and revolutionary event happened- I decided to wear jeans. I couldn't believe the reaction I received at work, so many people commented on my different wardrobe choice, it really was one of the major topics of conversation in the office. The last time I wore jeans was probably at least a year ago and many of you have probably never seen it on my blog. I usually don't like to wear jeans because they're not particularly girly, they are obviously more casual which often doesn't fit with my dressy style and I actually find skirts/dresses much more comfortable. However, I think coloured jeans and the amount of pink in this look counteracts some of the issues I generally have with pants. This outfit is my attempt to making jeans as girly and in accordance with my personal style as possible. Another reason behind my outfit choice was my desire to wear this jacket. It's a piece I purchased last year from Dangerfield but I never have enough opportunities to wear it. I've tried many combinations but it simply doesn't suit dresses or skirts and can really only be worn with jeans. I love it; the colour mix is very unique and the boucle texture is extremely beautiful. A boucle design always reminds me of Chanel which then creates a classy and luxurious feel. I am always drawn to this type of material. Following on from the Chanel inspired and pink theme, I added my pink look alike Chanel handbag which y sister in law got me from overseas. I wrote about this bag here and how I think it's an excellent version of the original. I'm often surprised when people make comments about how there is only one Chanel and the look alike versions are no comparison to the real versions. I understand that's the case in theory and the real Chanel is definitely my dream bag but for most average people such as myself there is no way in the world I would have a spare few thousand dollars to spend on a bag. It isn't even an option so it's really a choice between a look alike version or nothing and I know which I'd prefer. I had a lot of trouble accurately reflecting the colours in these photos. When I view the pictures on some computers the jeans look very pale and on other computers they are much brighter. They are actually very bright and neon in person.

Girl, this is the first time I see you in skinny jeans. I love the neon pink of those. But the gorgeous boucle jacket, the purse and pumps are the stars of this outfit - I think. Looking stunning, Imogen!

Enjoy this week gorgeous girl! <3 Ada.

Shybiker said...

Ha! That's a funny reaction you got. Your co-workers must expect you to wear dresses all the time.

The pretty colors make this outfit as girly as any dress.

Ali Hval said...

You can always rock the most spunky patterns and vivid hues, you know that? :) I love how much of a surprise your outfits always are. That jacket is absolutely gorgeous and I love how you pulled out the hot pink from it with those skinny jeans. I hope you have a very lovely week! <3

Ayana Pitterson said...

That outfit is definitely girly! I absolutely love that blazer and have been searching for a similar one for ages. I didn't realize you had a thing against jeans:), but this one doesn't even remind me of a jeans to be honest. Great outfit.

Imogen you definitely achieved a girly look for jeans, I love it.... you look adorable. If I drove instead of busing for over an hour each way I would wear dresses every day. I only own one pair of jeans ... I usually wear dress pants;-)

This is such a cool jacket, and I love the handbag and pumps to match. It looks like it has many different colors in the jacket, and I think that's why I admire it. It is so stylish, and I love it.

you look absolutely fabulous in this outfit! Those pink jeans look great on you and the jacket is to die for. That being said, I understand why you don't wear jeans. I had a period in my life when I didn't want to wear jeans at all because they seemed such an obvious choice. Now I do wear them, but that period helped me to try out new things and I ended up liking different styles...Anyhow, you do look great dear!

This is such a great outfit, and the jeans really keep with your feminine style!

June said...

OMG I'm loving everything about this look! The shades of pink are so nice and your pants are glowing! I totally understand not wearing jeans for a year because I barely wore them for many years too. Now I wear a baggy pair during summer when I'm running errands for the comfort factor. BTW in spite of being all pink, you make this look edgy rather than cute. And that is a good thing :) Totally agree with you on the lookalike bag point. I'd rather have a similar design then spend a bomb on a bag

Olivia said...

It's funny because in the last blog I visited and commented on, I was saying how every girl needs a pair of pink jeans. I think we have a lot of tops that would go perfectly with a pair and it would make you look instantly chic! You, for an example, pull off pink jeans quite nicely! I'm not really a fan of wearing jeans either..too short...and stick to mainly wearing dresses and skirts. But sometimes, I really do like to branch off and wear the occasional pants. It's a nice change! You totally rock those pants and should consider wearing them more often:)

Vita said...

Haha yeah, people tend to go crazy when they see someone who normally only wears dresses and skirts in pants. It still is very much "you" though, with the bright pink and very elegant jacket and bag.

Haha, I feel ya bro - the last time I wore jeans was in January, I was hungover and slipped some on to go to the shop to get some hangover food. I then came back, took them off and sat in front of the TV eating for the rest of the day.

That jacket is stunning on you! :) Such a pretty piece :)

It's good you could find some jeans that fit in with your personal style :) Have you tried the jacket with a LBD or a neutral coloured dress? I'm sure it would look lovely worn like that too! :)

Hope you have a great weekend ahead!
