Color Coordinated Or OCD?

Tunic (usually belted) + skinny jeans + boots has been my go-to outfit formula for a while, but I never thought to pair it with booties until I saw a girl at work wear something similar. I like the silhouette, but I’m a little iffy about the details – namely, the colors. Like how the green of the print doesn’t match the teal/green of my jeans and how the tan of my boots is darker than the tan of my blazer.

So what do you guys think – is this a case to apply my OCD about matching colors, or does it work?

Mom Jeans

Today’s 21 Day Challenge prompt is “Jazz up Your Jeans.” My outfit is loosely inspired by this look from Anthropologie (loosely, because my jeans are more teal than green.) It’s not very jazzed-up – but when I tried adding a blazer or a light scarf, it was like, “Argh! I’m boiling!”  – so here’s what you got.

I thrifted these jeans along with the orange pair (apparently I was on a colored jeans kick.) I like the color, but the fit is… a little weird (the thrift store doesn’t have a fitting room.) Have you ever seen the Saturday Night Live commercial “Mom Jeans“? I feel like I need to stuff my hips like that to fit these, otherwise I would have this strange fabric bunching around the, uh, zipper area. Or maybe I just need to wear a longer shirt to cover it up. What do you guys think?
