AJ Wears :: Mom Jeans

I never thought I’d willingly seek out mom jeans as a fashion choice, but here we are. I’ve been a little obsessed with Anine Bing and her style, and the whole tucked in tee and high waisted jeans aesthetic was really resonating with me, so when I saw these jeans on sale I had to try them.

Of course, they had to be shortened. And they ended up taking in the waist too to make them fit absolutely perfect - and I. Love. Them. By wearing them with a bodysuit, I truly transported myself back to the 90s and lived like an extra on the Friends set for a day.

Except I left “The Rachel” back in 1995. What a mistake that one was.

AJ Wears :: Pink and White

Still catching up on all of the outfits I never posted on here. Mostly so I can pin them, and link items I think you guys might like. Definitely to justify the $10 a month I spend on hosting.

Like this one, that I wore to work, even though it’s probably a little extra for work and any qualified business casual expert would say that a spaghetti strap is completely inappropriate for the office.

But as I said on Instagram. Anything can be work wear if you just don’t care. You do you, bb.

AJ Wears :: A Fluffy Red Coat

I’ve officially dubbed this coat “The Elmo Coat.” It’s ridiculous, it’s bright, it’s actually SUPER warm. You’ve already seen it on Instagram a few times if you follow me there.

I wore this out one night and the restaurant hostess said I looked like Cruella de Ville, if she lived on Sesame Street. AND I. AM. HERE FOR IT.

The thing about wearing a super fluffy coat is that people want to pet you. As long as you’re prepared for that, it’s otherwise a fun and rewarding experience. You also have to be prepared for constant whispers behind your back. Some will love it, some will hate it. Some will try to pose with you, thinking you’re the Times Square Elmo. Own it, girlfriend.

But most importantly, never forget where you came from.
