I don’t usually document jeans and tee outfits here on the blog. I don’t really know why. It’s not like I don’t wear that type of outfit, it’s just not the type I usually photograph.
This past weekend, Old Navy was hosting a pop-up shop in both Harvard Square and Boston to showcase their Rockstar and Boyfriend cut denim lines. Not to mention, the sweet Kendi was also there, helping out with styling sessions. Now, I already own some Rockstar skinny jeans, and really love them. But after receiving this lighter wash pair at the styling session, I think I’ve re-discovered my love for the classic jeans and tee outfit.
Plus, this tee glows in the dark. So there’s that :). I couldn’t help but rescue it from Boo’s donate pile. I mean, how could you let such a gem go?!

I dub this dress color Sunset Orange. Apparently the people who painted this wall thought the exact same thing.
I have had this outfit by Beth of B. Jones stuck in my head for forever now. No really, I just sit there and think about that outfit sometimes. No joke. And yet somehow it just dawned on me the other day, that I have all the components to put a veeeeery similar outfit together myself. How did I not realize this before?! It made me so excited!
And also - this outfit made me feel like summer.
Ever since I started making weekly garments for Design Diary, it has also motivated me to tackle projects in my own to-do pile. The pattern and fabric for this dress has been sitting around for quite some time now, and I finally got around to putting it together. It might be a little late in the season to be making a plaid, flannel dress. But at least the bright colors make up for it and make it spring appropriate.
And now I’m even more excited to finish more garments in my project pile!
