My Everyday Style Vol. 5


I CUT MY BANGS! I lasted a whole year! That deserves a medal or something, growing out your bangs is no joke. I enjoyed trying out a middle part and I actually even started seeing past the 5th grade Jen with it. At the end of the day though, bangs are more my style I think. There have been some “why did I cut them?!?!?!” days, but for the most part I am happy I cut them. I kind of want to cut the length now as well (like this or this).

Let’s talk about this sweater shall we? It is pretty much pure magic. It also works as the best nursing cover! Bonus! I’ve been wearing it pretty much non stop with these black skinnies. I think ever Mom and Woman for that matter should have a pair of high waisted skinny black jeans in their closet. You can spend a lot on a pair if you want or you can buy these rather inexpensive ones from UO. They are by far my most favorite pair. They have the right amount of stretch, the perfect rise and come in 2 lengths.

p.s. did I fool you with my purse? guess what? it’s a camera bag!! Hello, coolest bag I own now.

  1. I have that sweater in both colors (b&w and the red) and I’m OBSESSED with them. Most comfortable item of clothing I wear. So easy too! You look fantastic! Love the bangs! xo

  2. what a perfect every day outfit!

  3. Love the haircuts you linked to Jen. I’m thinking of doing the same in the next few weeks, will see… I also feel like bangs are more my style! And I love, love yours on you! Plus – I’m SO enjoying your everyday style posts. Working from home, I pretty much live in outfits like yours, so this is fabulous inspiration + I’m thinking I need that sweater. Hope you’re doing great, girl! xo

  4. Love the sweater and your shoes look so comfy!

  5. What a great look. I love a long easy sweater like this and I really have to pace myself with how often I wear my jean shirt, I can’t get enough of how versatile it is.

  6. I practically live in my black high waist skinnies from UO!

  7. nice! I have a sweater like that and I love it!! πŸ˜€ love your outfit!

  8. Cute everything–I admit, I haven’t become comfortable in high-waisted anything yet. I think the SNL Mom Jeans sketch combined with being over 40 has me terrified I’ll end up with the worst MOM look. I need to keep trying! πŸ™‚
    And bangs–You know me and bangs by now. My perpetual life dilemma. HOWEVER< I admire those of you who look great either way. I really NEED bangs. it's just how God made me I guess. So, i'm happy as long as I can find some sort of stylish way to wear them.
    You look great!
    Much love–

  9. PS.. I think that sweater would look great paired w/ Finley’s cute black and white blanket I’ve seen in photosÒ€¦I dunno, just came to me. πŸ™‚

  10. That bag does not even look like a camera stylish!
    And those shoes..what a thrifted treasure!

  11. GAH! love the sweater. they don’t have it in my size at the moment, but I will now be stalking the UO site. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I could not agree more about BDG jeans. My favorite pair are also the beloved black skinnies from UO. I only heard of them by way of Shoko from I NEVER would have thought their jeans would fit so well, be comfortable, and affordable. πŸ™‚ You look great. I loved my bangs for about a year, but I’m trying to grow them out…I go back and forth. They’re so fun, but also work… haha Yours look great! πŸ™‚

  13. What brand is the sweater? The Urban link just goes to their sweater page. The sweater is super cute and I want to see if I can find it elsewhere!


  14. love the bangs, and I vote for the first hair photo. It would look good with your hair.

  15. AH! Love this outfit! I’ve tried bangs before and failed. Yours, on the other hand, look adorable.

  16. Bought that UO sweater in December and wore it for at least 5 days straight. Most comfy thing EVER!

  17. LOVE the sweater!

  18. I love this outfit! I especially love those oxfords. I’m looking for a pair that will fit my feet nicely and not look clunky.

  19. Can’t wait to add some black skinnies to my closet post baby!

    You look adorable and I love the bangs.


  20. I have the same camera bag without the studs! I call it my BAGURSE and it’s the best!

  21. That sweater is just stunning! I love it! And your bangs look fabulous too…I’ve just grown mine out but I think, like you, they are more my style.

  22. That sweater is seriously cool! And your camera bag… ahhh! You look great with those bangs!!
