Classic

gold2gold5gold3gold1gold4


Pants? Joe Fresh Jacket? Thrifted Tee? h&m Shoes? Zara

Sometimes I'll have a fantastic outfit idea in my head and then, when I try it on, it's all kinds of wrong. I then give myself a little pat on the head and a cluck under the chin and tell myself 'better luck next time sweetie'. But I just knew that this one was going to be good. After all, a vintage wool red jacket and gold jeans are pretty much classic.
That said, the word classic can refer to a crazy wide range of options. Some call macaroni and cheese, classic and others call cranberry focaccia with turkey, pear, brie and a fine Dijon mustard, classic. Classic is in the eye of the beholder. And I beholden this to be classic. And I am also making up words...
I should take a moment to thank my little brother for taking these pictures. I found this location a few weeks ago and I've already used it 3 times. This time I spotted the security camera (behind me in picture 2), so I was rushing him. Between me hurrying him along and him losing interest and taking pictures of his car instead, I still think we got a few good pictures. I'll keep him on the family tree for now...

Indeed a classic pair Jentine! I am so mad at you, however, for continuing to look amazing in these metallic pants. I keep searching high and low for a good deal on metallic jeans to no avail. I love the gold paired with the red blazer. My boyfriend gets the same way when he's taking my pictures. But, you take some you give some, ya know?

Holy crap!! I wore the exact same outfit (almost) but with bright blue colored jeans. Leopard shoes and red jacket, striped black and white top!! Great minds think alike:)

Love stripes and leopard, the blazer is gorgeous! Think I have been caught on camera in the past, but we bloggers are harmless!

You look great. See that's the beauty about all this blogging business. I never would have thought to buy some metallic trousers, but now I am seriously tempted. Hmmz. Not so good for my wallet, but who cares :)

Love the blazer!

I love this! I wish I was brave enough to wear it, I'd rock the whole thing for a few minutes then chicken out and switch to black pants, love that you make it work!

Great outfit! I don't usually wear red and gold together because they were my high school's colors and that color combo gives me a bad association, but now I might rethink that based on your blazer and metallic jeans.
