How We Wore it// Fashion Collaboration// Jean shopping is the worrrrrrrst

A few weeks ago, Brooke emailed me and asked me if I wanted to join in for a little fashion blogger collaboration thingy.   I said yes, of course, you fool! The idea was to copy a look from a favorite blogger (Sasha from Moilogy) using pieces of clothing we already had in our closet.  Several of us would do it, and then all share our looks and link up to each other's blogs.

Here's the thing.  I know I am not a fashion blogger nor will I ever strive to be, pretend to be, or want to be a fashion blogger.  But sometimes it is fun to accept a challenge, like the one from Brooke, to wear something a little bit different.  Expand your fashion horizons, you know?

I especially enjoyed doing this little fashion project because I haven't exactly felt on top of my fashion game since having a baby.  None of my jeans fit anymore.  All shirts must have quick and easy access to my bosoms which feed my baby.  I am home twice as much as I used to be.  All this translates to a lot of baggy sweat shirts and yoga pants for the win.  Cutting edge fashion, basically.

So yah.  It was fun to get dressed and challenge myself a little bit.  Fashion is weird.  I love it and hate it.  Like who says we have to look nice?  Why can't sweat pants be enough?  But then at the same time, I feel proud when I look good and put together.  But sweat pants!  It's an emotional roller coaster.

Anyway, here's the pics. Eat your hearts out, peeps.

The original....

And the copycat...

Shirt: Old Navy
Jeans: American Eagle
Sunglasses: H&M
Shoes:  Don't know, don't care.

I can't wear those jeans anymore, fyi, because the holes have gotten way too big, but they were the perfect jean and now I'm mourning their loss.  I went jean shopping this week and it was the worrrrrrrrrst.  I found nothing to please me.  I like a jean that has a tight leg, a tight(ish) butt, but a roomy waist and thighs.  I'm so sick of the skinny jeans that are uber uber tight on my waist, and I hate the baggy jeans that make me look like I have no butt.   Is there no best of both worlds that doesn't have huge holes down the pant legs?  DO I ASK TOO MUCH? 

Please send jean help.

And as always, a big thanks to Aubrey for doing her thing behind the lens.

Now go see these bloggers' unique take on Sasha's look.  E'ryone did it!
