HOW I STYLED MY NEW SKINNY CROP JEANS

Hi everyone,
HOW I STYLED MY NEW SKIN-TIGHT CROP PANTS
Hope you are in good spirits and are keeping well.  The last couple of weeks were hard for me, I lost my brother who had been battling Alzheimer's decease for the past 6 years.  It was a terrible loss for the family but probably a blessing for my poor brother.

The news about the corona virus has been exacerbated by the fact that our regular grocery shopping has turned into a hunt for survival doesn't help to lift my mood.  I swear, I haven't seen supermarket shelves so empty since I left Russia 30+years ago.  First to go were the non-perishables, like toilet paper and paper towels and basic staples like rice, pasta and sugar.  Now people are buying and freezing perishables, like mincemeat, sausages and cold meat cuts.

And tough luck if you have a headache because all the non-prescription pain killers are gone from the shelves too.  Unbelievable.  I called my girlfriend in Odessa, my home town, and she offered to send me some toilet paper and whatever else I need.  If back then someone would've told me that one day our roles would be reversed, I would never believe it and yet here we are.

But enough of that, let's talk about OOTD 😃.  I have been a devotee of JBrand jeans for a very long time, there is something about the cut that even when I wear the most tight ones like these high rise skinny crop jeans, I feel very comfortable.  Up until now all the jeans that I bought from them over the years have been in one solid colour so this busy print is new for me.  I bought them during the summer season but it was too hot to wear them until a couple of weeks ago when the temperature dropped and I moved my shorts to the back of the closet till next summer.

I think that despite the fact that the print is quite busy, I can easily dress them up or down and wear them differently depending on the occasion.   Today's occasion supposed to be lunch in the upscale restaurant in the city where we were meant to meet my husband's friends from the USA.  Sadly, in light of the current state of affairs all around the world, this lunch as is their trip, went out of the window but "the show must go on".

You have seen me wearing this linen blazer before here, I am so pleased with it, I wear it with everything from jeans to silk skirts.

The top is quite new too, I couldn’t pass it for its sunny happy colour, it makes me smile just looking at it.

The D&G shoes, on the contrary, are so old that they might fall under description  "vintage" but I love them so much, I will wear them till they fall apart.  I wear them a lot, last time seen here.

The last but not least, please take a closer look at my earrings.  They are custom made from seed beads by a friend of mine who is extremely talented and everything she makes looks stunning.  I also asked her to make me a bracelet which I will show you when it's done.

  2. I'm so sorry about your brother Anna. It's such a sad thing. But I just adore these jeans. In fact, my mom just recently bought a pair like them, so I'm going to send this to her for inspiration.

  4. Hi Anna,
    I am sorry about the loss of your brother. These are hard times, but I am trying to keep positive and having the blog helps. Hope for you too. I LOVE this outfit! I am a big blazer fan, so your linen blazer looks great with the orange top and I love your scarf as well. I could use a few new Spring neck scarves. Those are some great jeans too! I love AG as well, always soft and comfy.
    thank you for linking!
    stay well!

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. My late aunt had alzheimers and I know first hand how horrible this disease can be. The state of the world is crazy right now, supermarkets are being wiped clean and it is just ludicrous. Hope you're keeping safe. Re your outfit, I just love those jeans. I am also a huge fan of J Brand jeans. They have a certain kind of comfort that is additictive!

  7. Very sorry to hear about your brother Anna. Very stylish outfit as always, loving the warm sunny colour of your top and those fabulous tangerine shoes. If it's any consolation we have a similar shopping situation in the UK. People have been panic buying, and the supermarket shelves are empty. The stores are working hard to replace the stock, but every day it's the same story. I was so relieved today to find that the local, small supermarket had a few fresh fruit and vegetables!

  9. This is a cheery outfit. I can see why you love the orange top (and shoes!). When I was at the grocery store last week, there was a lot of shelves cleared out, but there will still things left, too.

  13. They are such fun pants and I like the orange with them! It's scary at the shops! I'm the one that goes to get groceries, I feed the kids most of the time so I know what things I can substitute if I can't find things but it's getting to the point that staples are hard to find, even going to the shops twice a week (which is more often than I want to go to be honest!). I'm hoping things calm down soon but even with the limits I'm seeing a lot of empty shelves :(

    Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp :) I just posted this week's linkup, I'd love you to join again! :)

    Hope that you had a great weekend! :) We had a quiet one at home of course!
