Fashion Friday: Scratch


So I think I probably jumped on this colored jeans trend about 3 months late, but hey, better late than never, right? I scored these teal skinnies online for almost half-off though, so I figured what have I got to lose?


I actually think that these jeans would look awesome with some closed-toe pumps, but as I’m still recovering from Wednesday’s CrossFit session, I couldn’t quite stomach the idea. So t-strap flats it was!



Jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Shirt: Forever21
Tank (underneath): H&M
Shoes: Target
Watch: Fossil (similar, similar)
Flippin’ sweet mustache Necklace: Gift from my sister

This outfit, while being pretty standard weekend wear for me, actually had a very functional purpose. It was to partially hide the horrific scratch marks that Daxter left on my chest. Evidently he did not appreciate the way I scooped him up earlier.

Please ignore my super redface; it was like a zillion degrees.

He is lucky he’s so fracking cute, that’s all I gotta say.


Have a great weekend!


  1. I think I want to buy these jeans! Do they run small? I feel like skinny jeans always will.

    • They actually run bigger than I expected. I also always expect skinny jeans to run small, but I guess British sizing (since Dorothy Perkins is a UK-based company) is cut a little bigger? These are 12s and even with my weight re-gain, they slide on really easily.

  2. love the outfit! especially the watch. what’s with the mustache trend lately? a girl I know actually got one tattooed on her finger. it seems like mustache and bacon related clothing and accessories are all the rage. I tried to pull a mustache off for a hot minute, but I just looked like a creeper. oh well. 🙁

    have a great weekend! 🙂

    • Bahahaha, mustaches are quite the trend right now, and it’s one that I have happily been on board with from the beginning. But it’s true that in real life, mustaches (without an accompanying beard) are usually pedo-tastic looking. I’m sure some people can pull them off (Tom Selleck, anyone?) but it’s hard!

  3. Love the skinnies! Great color.

    Oh Daxter. There is something about schnauzer’s claws that are brutal. My parents have two and they can leave some pretty hefty scratch marks. Marks of love?!

  4. I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. I’ve been wanting colored jeans (yeah, I’m late on this trend too..) but I’ve been feeling like they wouldn’t look good on me because I’ve got a really curvy/muscular lower half (ok…I’m curvy all over, but especially my thighs/butt). BUT you’re a curvy girl too and you absolutely rock this look. Totally gives me the courage to buy a pair 🙂

    Oh and the pics with Daxter are too cute. I always turn into Bob the tomato when it’s hot too! haha

    • I used to be really wary of skinny jeans/colored jeans/really anything that draws a lot of attention to my bottom half because I definitely have a lot of curves going on down there. But really it was reading fashion blogs like Girl with Curves, who is always rocking them and looks great that helped me get over myself. (http://girlwithcurves.tumblr.com/post/29333201972/office-polish) Go for it!

  5. I LOVE the pants and the sandals. I’m thinking of hitting up Kohl’s, I heard they have cute skinnies on sale. Are those sandals new? I NEED those on my feet asap!

  6. UR a cute fashionista!!

    Gee, I did not realize how long your hair is this summer. Wow. Obviously, short or long locks …. looks great on ya!

    Love the pooch! Does that scratch hurt? Yikes. Try calamine lotion …. something soothing. {{Ouch}}

    As for the “skinnies” …. I have pink, yellow & white. Very cozy w/all sorts of tops and big sweaters.

    Happy Friday + weekend ya’all.

  7. love the jeans!! I just bought green shorts from old navy, I’m a bit late too haha

  8. Love the mint jeans! I checked out the Dorothy Perkins site – looks like they have awesome clothes at affordable prices! 🙂

  9. I’m obsessed with colored jeans and could care less if they came onto the scene earlier this year – so you rock your minties! Kohl’s had a ton on sale this weekend, I had to stop myself from buying a pair in each color 🙂
