Suspenders: Who Wore it Better? (2013 vs. 2016)
It turns out I'm a fan of the purple jeans/suspenders combo. I found a blog post from all the way back in 2013 of a young Rachel who had no idea that she'd spend the next couple years moving from one country to another...also wearing purple jeans with suspenders. Funny how when I only get a suitcase and a carry-on and a backpack to pack, those are the things that stay with me. (Another post has me wearing suspenders with a completely different outfit). Now the question becomes, who wore it better?
Worn with a t-shirt, sandals, and a long beady necklace, too! Different ones, but still the same general pattern remains clear. Funny thing is I only noticed the resemblance between this weekend's outfit and the one from nearly 3 years ago once I saw the photos. Either the lighting in the photos is drastically different or my beloved purple jeans aren't nearly as purple as the used to be, either, and they appear to be a looser fit these days, so perhaps the wash stretched them out, too.
I still like the turquoise tee better. Angel's always trying to convince me to wear colors like grey, baby blue, white, or cream, but the pictures seem to prove my hypothesis that such colors have a tendency to blend in with my skin. I love 2013's haircut but 2016's hair isn't so bad, either. It'll be better when the sis's boyfriend sends me my favorite blue color. The huge glasses are probably the biggest difference between the two looks, and although I'm slightly more open to being photographed with this pair of glasses than my previous pair, I still prefer the no-glasses look. Big glasses AND suspenders at the same time lends itself a little too obviously to the fake nerd look. And I'm anything but a fake nerd.
So, who wore it better? Or do you opt for a third option, yourself? Have you ever worn suspenders and blogged about it?
