I feel Scholarly - Purple Jeans

Firstly, thank you Beth Goodrham from Style Guile for featuring myself and 3 other bloggers (Avril being one) for a piece she wrote for here Brit Mums Blog. I am among some very chic women bloggers.  I was very honoured you chose me because I want to be like you (and Avril) when I grow up my blog.

Today's outfit makes me feel like I should be a professor on a university campus.  Now I went to the University of Waterloo, and anyone who knows anything about Waterloo (at least when I went there, and I have been told not much has changed) knows the school was/is fashionably challenged. I'm sure my professor look would cause a bit of a stir. I'm wearing purple jeans, that is just crazy.

Sorry for the above tangent, stroll down memory lane, back to today.

I bought these jeans last year and I wore the hell out of them last year and they are in regular rotation this year as well. The thing about coloured denim is you need to stick to hues that will easily move into your closet. Dark purple goes well with all my basics and easily fit into my wardrobe. If I'm going to be honest almost any colour is going to fit into my wardrobe, for some other wonderful ladies this may not be the case. Please think of this when choosing colours.

  1. I love pairing up a denim shirt with a blazer - it looks chic, but at the same time cool and quirky. These trousers match it perfectly!

  2. Cute loafers. Sophie x


  3. Love the blazer! :)

  4. Such a rad outfit! The jeans are the icing on the cake, I'm following you now.

  5. I love those purple jeans! They are gorgeous! And your blazer is so classic!

  6. Iva, you always look so sharp and nicely turned out. I think I might be getting slightly jealous over here...just sayin' ;)

  7. Great outfit Iva…love the blazer with the denim shirt - defo going to try that some day. Thanks for telling me about the Britmums feature….I didn't realise until I read your blog post! That was so nice of Beth :) Avril x

  8. Lol, I went to Waterloo too (late 90s early 00's) and it is super fashion challenged. Pjs and Parkas are the norm. Maybe jeans & a tee for the Bomber.

    Love the outfit!
