I can’t stop wearing these pants! I last wore them on the blog here, but have probably worn them at least once a week since then. Which is hilarious because I have always hated wearing anything but a dress or skirt!
A few of my colleagues have even commented on it: “Jen’s not in a dress!” “Oh my gosh, Jen’s wearing pants!” “Jen, you look so…casual!” 🙂
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s the new me. I sometimes wear pants now!
As I mentioned in my other post, the second H&M sells these in other colors, I’m buying ALL OF THEM. I would also love if they did this style in a full-length pant. I think it’s the combination of stretchy material, flat front, and side zip that do it for me.
As I’m writing this post, I’m thinking to myself “I hope I actually look good in these…otherwise my readers will be wondering why I’m gushing about them so much!”
Well anyway, enough talk about pants. Let’s move onto this adorable striped top. I’m in love with the cute back detail, and to be honest this is another closet item that gets lots of wear.
There’s nothing new in this outfit to feature except….
…my 8-bit hair bow! Isn’t it awesome?! I bought it from the ThinkGeek booth when Dave and I were at PAX East in April. In other ThinkGeek news, I had the honor of being selected as their Action Shot winner on Instagram! I had tagged them on my Capcom Live outfit, since I had on a Mega Man pin and sprite purse from their shop.
I was featured in their newsletter AND got a $100 gift card! I can’t wait to pick out some new nerdy goodies 🙂
I’ll finish this post with a few pictures that further confirm that Dave rarely looks “normal” in photos on my blog. It’s his crazy attitude and fun personality that make me love him so much!
(Well, that last one is actually normal…and quite handsome if I do say so myself! P.S. He has the PAX East Limited Edition 2016 pin on his lapel)
