Lavender and Blue Jeans

Wearing long lavender mohair cardigan with a white turtleneck under and jeans. Gold glitter mary janes and holding a small baguette camel purse.

Believe it or not there was a time when I would never wear an outfit like this.

My entire wardrobe consisted of almost all black pieces, no light colours, and hardly any jeans. That’s when I was working in NYC. Then I moved to the south, got married, and everything changed, including my wardrobe. It is now full of colour, texture, and happy memories. These jeans are very vintage Levis that I used to wear when my husband and I were first dating (over 10 yrs ago.) I pulled them out today and was excited to see that they still fit. I paired them with a white turtleneck, a lavander mohair cardigan last seen here, and my favourite gold glitter mary janes.
What do you think of this look? Do you have items that you haven’t worn in over 10 years? Are there pieces in your closet that hold happy memories?

Shoes: Miu Miu. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

    1. Thank you Julia. I was surprised they fit as well. Though it doesn't come easy as I've worked out practically everyday for the last 20 years :)

  8. It's amazing to know what a change of environment and marriage can do to someone's wardrobe. I can't believe your body has not changed in over 10 years!! Levi has amazing jeans that are long lasting! I love how you styled the jeans with the lavender cardigan, you look flawless! Have a lovely weekend dear!

  11. I have a lot of pieces in my wardrobe that are older than ten years (some t-shirts, mostly) and that hold a lot of memories, but I don't think I´d ever fit into a pair of jeans I wore 10 years ago ever again. At the moment I wouldn't even fit into a pair of jeans I wore ten months ago, but I hope that is only temporary.

    1. You have an amazing excuse not to fit into your jeans. I hope I have that excuse one day :)

  20. Our style seems similar, Lili, my wardrobe was mainly black, white and blue when I was working but that all changed when I got married. And how amazing it is that you still fit into your old jeans from 10 years ago? That would have given me a major ego boost! Haha!

    1. I still haven't had a child yet, so I'm sure all that will change once I do. But for now it does give a boost, though I do feel myself having to work out harder for it as time goes on :) Thank you Shireen.

  24. I'm like how you used to be. I wear black almost every single day since I live and work in NYC. What can I say? The stereotype is true! Your sweater is so lovely and cozy and that denim is a great save! The cut is very of the moment!

  27. This lavender color looks so pretty :) It looks lovely with the turtleneck and pointed heels :) Those Levis are still gorgeous after 10 years! I have quite a few pieces in my wardrobe with meaning, mostly ones I've acquired when I've been travelling

  29. Gotta love good quality jeans - especially Levi's. I know they're an expensive brand but they're such good quality that they're worth the money exactly because they'll last you years. They're lovely. And like you, I used to wear really dark colours but that has changed throughout the years!

    I love the colour coordination in this look!
