Looking Cooler than I Am in High Waisted Skinny Jeans, a Leather Jacket, & Boots

Happy Monday! I wore this on Friday for a pizza buffet dinner with Jeanie and then a night out with friends. I don't wear jeans super often because I have so many other clothes I enjoy wearing, but I really like these jeans. It's hard to find a cheap pair of modern high-waisted jeans! Next time I see a pair like these at Forever 21 I'm going to snatch them up because these are really not built to last.

I paired the jeans with a tie-dye-ish top I got on clearance at Target and my black faux leather jacket. This jacket is proving to be a trusty item in my wardrobe. I'm sure I'll be breaking it out as soon as possible next fall. My boots here have served me well for well over a year now and they actually aren't that bad for walking around downtown all night. (I even made it through some epic white girl dancing at a bar that only plays 90s music.) My feet only hurt the next day! I think that's a success for heels.

top: merona - target | jeans: forever 21 | jacket: ashley by twenty six international - ross dress for less | boots: xhileration - target



Jeanie told me I looked cool in this outfit. This is as cool as I ever look, so feel free to bask in the wonder of this. I was definitely sending a false vibe of coolness throughout the night! Luckily my friends know the truth.




For my makeup I decided on smokey gray eyeshadow with thin black winged liner on the top lid and bright blue smudged along the bottom lid. My lipstick was a mauve Wet n Wild shade. I can't stop playing with makeup lately! It's so much fun!




I'm on spring break this week so I'll be both relaxing and catching up on school work. Sounds pretty exciting, right? Maybe there'll be a few fun outings thrown in throughout the week. I hope so!

Have a great start to your week!

My week started off with rain and a car with oil leaking from it. LAAAME.

Haha, that was depressing. I guess it could be worse. I did have a class cancelled. That's kind of nice! ;)

But yes, I totally love these pants on you! I'm the same way about wearing pants--why bother when you have so many pretty dresses and such? But you totally dressed these up! I hope you can find another pair before these wear out (but they're still looking new as ever, if I may say!)

Love the colors of that top, and your eye makeup! The boots look great with high-waisted skinny jeans! :)

I LOVE your eye makeup! I've tried the bright-color liner before, but I can't seem to find a good shade for my skin color. I'm thinking I'll try some bright purple. Purples usually look better on me.
But that blue is gorgeous on you!
And you DO look cool! I especially love your boots! Happy Monday!

This is such a fun take on classic college girl "going out" clothes. The high-waisted jeans are fun and you really made them modern with the ankle boots and colorful blouse. And your makeup is lovely as well. Perfect for a Friday night!

Congratulation on making it to spring break! I have about another week or so. So close!

Your makeup and hair look beautiful! I love that mauve Wet n Wild shade lipstick and your thin black winged liner. Your mascara is perfect - and what big blue eyes! Your fuchsia and blue pussy-bow blouse is very pretty. - good for you getting it on clearance!

I noticed your pretty make-up immediately! I don't know the littlest thing about make-up, but I absolutely love the bright blue you used on your bottom lid :) It compliments your beautiful blue eyes :) And it totally matches the hints of blue in your top! Lovely look Jamie, and I am in desperate need of some late night dancing myself! I need some time off of work! x

You look really great in pants! I think that these make your legs miles long, especially with those awesome heels!
