An Old Blue Jeans Outfit for Weekend Running Errands

Today I present a nice weekend look to run errands, get a coffee, or just go to the mall. I am wearing my old blue boyfriend jeans with a cashmere sweater, a gingham shirt, and my Harley Davidson booties.I bought the jeans a year ago and it is my favorite pair.

Alter pieces to be more “you”

The Carhartt shirt originally had one breast pocket. However, I do not like pockets when there is only one. I nevertheless bought the shirt as I fell in love with its nice color and it had the best quality of the gingham shirts I had looked at. Thus, it seemed easier and faster to take the pocket off than continue the search for a look-a-like without pocket.

I often alter clothes I buy. I already knew in the store that I would twig the shirt to be fully my style. Do you alter pieces right away when you bought them for other reasons than just fit (e.g. shortening a hem)?

Styling Outerwear

I am a strong believer that outerwear is nothing but another outfit. Consequently, it has to be styled too. Or better, it is fun to style outerwear too. For running errands around town I wore my short black shearling coat with a cable knit scarf that a girlfriend of mine made for me as her farewell gift. The scarf adds some posh as it looks like a collar.

I added my Pippa bag as it is very roomy so I can benefit from not taking a plastic bag. Plastic bags ruin every look. There is a reason why high end stores have these fancy paper bags with satin ribbons as handles.

In Fairbanks, no such stores exists. However, many stores in town give 5 cents back or an extra point on the frequent customer card. I like (their) being conscious about the environment and even being awarded for it is great as well.
