On Saturday, I went geocaching with a friend. It was tempting to wear jeans, considering the amount of outdoor exploring we'd be doing, but it stuck to my guns and tried to pick functional dress wear.
Dress & tights: hand-me-downs
Jacket: Forever 21
Boots: Merrell from REI
Even though the dress and tights look fancy-ish, I didn't mind if they got mucked up, since they're hand-me-downs.
There were parts of this outfit I ended up liking more than I thought - the jacket with the dress, for instance. It also looked cool if the jacket was buttoned up, which I've never tried before. I didn't really like the boots and tights with the dress though. I don't know if it's because I'm not a huge fan of black tights - they often look dowdy or formal - or if the dress hit my legs in a spot where it would look better with flats. Anyway, this outfit got the job done - we found four geocaches! Whee!
On Sunday, I went to a Packers party. Jordan and I don't like watching football, but I thought I could dress in one of the team's colors as support anyway.
Sweater & scarf: hand-me-downs
Leggings: Forever 21
Does anyone else prefer leggings over tights? I don't know why I find them much more comfortable. Maybe it's the thicker fabric? Anyway, I love these long leggings from Forever 21. My other pairs are mid-calf and thin, which isn't ideal for most outfits.
Two down, two to go!
