More than Jeans and a T-Shirt

I've always been a prissy girl.
Pink, ruffled, girly- when I was a little girl, the frillier the better.
To potty train me, my mom put ruffle bottom panties on me. That's it.
I didn't want to soil my pretty panties, so I didn't.

My style is ever evolving, but a little sass or girlie flair has always been an ingredient.
When it comes to 'Plain Jane' jeans and a t-shirt, unless I'm painting or cleaning house, you won't see it on me. Call it the curse of the prissy girl. I just can't do it.
All it takes is a little something to go from 'Plain Jane' to touch of sass.
Oh and a friend to make you laugh thru a quick 'hey, before I leave your house, snap a few pics for me?' photo shoot.

favorite boots-best hand me down ever

Sometimes a kick pleat and ruffle blowing in the wind are enough to make a plain pairing feel like a 'put-together' outfit. Is it still a kick pleat if it's at the top of the back of a jacket? You aren't kicking anything....but it kicks out the fabric...what is it really called?
It was so windy, I couldn't keep my hair out of my face. My five year old thought it was hysterical the wind nearly blew me over...but Oh the sky is such a glorious shade of blue in the desert when the high winds blow all the clouds away.

How do you wear jeans and a t-shirt? Dressed up? Dressed down? Accessorized?

Linking up with Lindsey and Nina this week.

It's HARD for me to toss on jeans and a t-shirt too. So I usually 'dress' it up a bit. Love your scarf and asymmetrical vest. That would work for me too. Curse of the prissy girl... I totally GET that.

HA! I love the pics by my front door. ;) So funny. Why do we always end up laughing hysterically when we take pictures?
I think you've made ME not be able to throw on jeans and tshirt so easily anymore. Bad influence? Good one? I'm not sure! haha. LOVE that cropped little jacket!
