Kind of Mime

Top: H&M
Jeans: CJ by Cookie Johnson
Bag: American Vintage
Shoes: Jessica Simpson

I don’t wear jeans very often and I wear them for blog photos even less often, but I liked this simple outfit so I decided to post it today. I got these CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans with my employee discount when I worked for They are the softest, most comfortable jeans I’ve ever owned. They also fit really well and don’t gap in back or slide down too far when I sit or bend down.

A horizontal-striped top always seems like the natural companion for these jeans, resulting in a sort of mime look. I found this top recently at H&M and I think the colors, stripe width and length are pretty much perfect. And this red bag is new to me, yay! I was pretty excited to find it in the American Vintage store on Melrose for $16 since I’d been looking for a simple red bag forever.
