Casual Outfit for a Soccer MatchLast weekend, we went to the San Jose Earthquake’s season opening game at Avaya Stadium. I’m normally not a big sporting events watcher. However, I have to say, going to the game was a great experience. The view from pretty much anywhere in the stadium is fantastic and there is a big food truck meetup right inside the stadium. The only problem was that it was colder and windier than we had anticipated.
I don’t own any Earthquake gear (nor can I imagine myself ever owning any), but I wanted to wear a casual, yet put-together outfit for the occasion. And out came my grey leopard-print jeans. I have had the jeans for about five years and recently rediscovered them during a closet clean out. I remember debating whether to buy the jeans when I saw them in Germany; they were on major sale and fit well. However, I am normally not a fan of printed jeans, but the grey on grey seemed muted enough yet different. I’m glad that I bought them as the cost per wear is really low by now, and I enjoy wearing them (although I may forget about them for a while at times…). I paired the jeans with a grey long sleeve printed tee, my jean jacket, and a blue/grey leopard-print scarf. I also wore comfortable black flats as well as a delicate fringe necklace.
Two More Casual Outfits with Leopard-Print JeansI wore the grey leopard-print jeans and the jean jacket again later in the week on a day I was working from home, this time with a grey sweater, a purple scarf, and turquoise and purple jewelry.
And since I often get stuck on recently “re-discovered” clothing items, I wore the pants a third time. It was an unusually cold and windy day, and I paired the jeans with a plaid shirt, sweater, and my favorite grey jacket. Unfortunately, I was freezing all day...
Questions: What clothing item(s) did you recently rediscover? Do you ever think about what the likely cost per wear will be for an item when you purchase it?
