Who Knew (See Jane Suprised)


I never thought I would be one to say the phrase 'cargo jeggings,' let alone buy a pair--recent interest in cargo pants was a big step in itself.  I couldn't help myself, though.  As soon as I saw them on a mannequin as I passed by American Eagle, my curiosity was piqued.  When I saw the price (under $20), I knew I had to have them.  This isn't my first pair of leggings disguised as denim material, but it is my first pair of cargo pants since junior high.

Anthropologie blazer, F21 top, American Eagle jeggings, J Crew shoes (here + here)

A year ago, if you could have told me that I would be buying green, cargo, jeggings (a cringe-worthy word in itself) from American Eagle, I would have demanded a refund of my future.  My how time changes perspective--I've been wearing these non-stop!

It's amazing how things change, isn't it? Heck, my younger self would have cringed at the thought of a leopard-print scarf. But you know what? I love it. Just like I love your cargo leggings - they're insanely flattering on you!

ummmm I love these! You look great (as always)! I actually dog-earred a sweater I saw in a magazine from American Eagle and couldn't believe it either. But for the prices...not gonna pass it up!

You're so right on about your cargo jeggings rule. Whenever I find myself sticking to a rule like No bright lipstick! No socks with open toed shoes! I'll try to go out of my way to break my own rules. Fashion, and even our own perception of it, is always changing.

nice american eagles..because they almost are comparable to the AG jeggings!

Alicia said...

You got a major deal on the cargo pants. Holy moses. They look so good on you and your shoes have been locked in my mind for about a week. Not good for my wallet.

Love the way you put the outfit together with a blazer. Totally amps it up.

ps-it's cold down here (at least for us) - in the 60's and has been raining off and on the past couple days.

xoxo,
Carrie

Those are so awesome! They look just like the J Brands that I love so much! (and these are much more affordable ;-)

Molly said...

They look super cute... and I HATE the word "jeggings" too. I bought a pair, but have avoided wearing them for fear I'll have to use that word. Ick.

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Anna Jane, the weather has been beautiful in Vancouver. Nice and crisp fall weather.

You should come and visit our city :)

Jamie said...

I actually love American Eagle jeans and the way they fit (I have 4 pairs!) but I agree I haven't owned cargos in years. I find myself wanting a pair desperately!!

AmyW said...

Those look great on you, and as a former sales associate who worked at AE when those came out, I can honestly say they don't look good on most of the people who tried them on - you're workin' it!
