OOTD | Old and New Friends

Tell me. Why is it so hard to style shredded boyfriend jeans? 

I spent the bulk of last night with piles of shirts on my bed. My mind organizing this beautiful mess, wondering how to look effortlessly decent. Despite endless scrolling through Pinterest, I found nothing. Boyfriend jeans are tricky. The only baggy jeans I have, and ripped as well. 

Three hours passed and I gave up. I tossed the shirts on my already messy floor, and fell into deep, dead slumber. Shredded Boyfriend Jeans are a beast I cannot defeat.

Yeah, still haven't.

My friends gave these jeans and the bag for my birthday. Both from Something Borrowed, Zalora. This is because I "don't have nice clothes." They say with a smile, and hope I start dressing cooler. Jokes on them, because I dressed like a mother in attempt to be cool than actually cool.

At the suggestion of my own mother, I brought a pair of flats in my bag. Aware of past experience with long walks and longer heels, I knew I would need it before the day ended. The beautiful black pumps were five inches of masochism. My feet turned red with blisters. Perhaps the false sense of confidence from artificial height isn't worth it.

I'm kidding, it was worth everything. Towering over friends feels nice, almost powerful.

I spent the day out with friends, gallivanting around my town I rarely explore. 

It's been ages since we spent time together. It was nice to reconnect and enjoy the company of old friends. Almost as if time lost was found. Almost, there was still a lot to discuss. Work, life and the hullabaloo that none of us could comprehend. The day was not meant for work, life or hullabaloos. It was meant for laughs, disappointing mozzarella sticks and long walks. 

The day ended so quickly. As if time found was lost again, with so much to discuss about us. Old friends with so much to talk about, but so little time. I keep myself optimistic though, knowing I have their numbers stored in my phone. They're a call away if we ever needed to talk. Perhaps then we'll have plenty of time and a plethora to discuss.

So how do you keep in touch with old friends?

  5. Yeeeeees, I love this look! If I didn't look like such a Hobbit, I'd totally rock the ripped jeans.

    How do I keep in touch with friends? With uni friends, I'd say Twitter. Others? Facebook now and again. But we rarely meet up to be honest.

  18. I feel you girl, boyfriend jeans are truly tricky but you nailed this look. In the words of my sister I love how you styled your hijab with this look, the colour is so flattering as well. As for the heels the confidence is always worth it but I always make sure I take my flats.

  37. I've lost touch with so many people and that's always hard to accept, I guess that just happens in life. Though I keep in touch a lot with my closest friend who I've been friends with for 18 years as we meet up regularly and talk over the internet. Such a lovely outfit by the way, I think the top goes really nicely with those jeans! x

  38. Loving those sunnies! They are perfect!!

  42. You have definitely conquered the beast! Your outfit looks Tumblr worthy. I generally keep in contact with friends via Whatsapp and try to meet every mid-term break. Or just have a catch-up session at home because most of the time you just need a good old' cup of coffee and each other. xx

  43. Great look

  44. five inches of masochism .. I love that phrase. I might even use it myself in conversations! :D

    You look great in your version of ripped jeans and high heels! :)

    And I do keep in touch with friends of high school and university.. but that's because all of us are really good friends. So even a full year can go by.. and we still will have fun and a drink and a good chat! :)
