Styled: Boyfriend Jeans

A good pair of boyfriend jeans are a wardrobe essential. A girl can never have too many different pairs of jeans. Boyfriend jeans go in and out of style, but right make an outfit look relaxed without trying very hard. They are often baggy with a low waist which is a very 90s type of silhouette for girls. Boyfriends jeans can offset dainty pieces like lace or crop tops to add a little something extra to an outfit.

It girls and fashion girls love boyfriends jeans so there’s plenty of places to look for inspiration. One of my favorite ways to wear distressed boyfriend jeans is with a baggy sweater and loafers. It looks effortlessly chic but not too relaxed where it becomes frumpy. There are tons of different washes, styles, and brands to check out so it’s easy to find the right pair.

If you haven’t considered them before or thought they were out of style here is some inspiration to guide you.

Victoria Beckham for Target

Just yesterday Victoria Beckham’s range for Target hit stores and online. I woke up pretty excited about adding some pieces to my wardrobe but felt a little overwhelmed. There’s about 200 pieces for women and children from clothing to accessories. When finally browsing I was still a little undecided.

I really like the choice of fabrics and find the colors to be charming. I don’t feel as though many of the items would be universal to my body type though. I do enjoy they fit cohesively with a runway collection she debuted a couple seasons back that I wrote about for another website. I was met with disappointment finding out many of the items were only available in store and yet no store around me. Until recently when I checked the website again to find plenty of the pieces were in stock.

I do love many pieces of this collection and they are slightly affordable. I think they are definitely worth the price just on looks alone, but I have yet to try any of them on in store. That said, I chose my favorites (although I really do also want a scarf) in case you need some convincing. I am seriously eyeing that retro mini skirt..it would be such a jump outside my comfort zone.

Shopping List: Las Vegas

Next month I’ll be heading off to Las Vegas for a little birthday trip (yikes). I’ve only been once before for 24 hours to see Jay-Z a couple years ago. Since I’m going with some of my closest friends I have tried to determine what it is best to pack. Granted their only answer was “all the sequins.”

I’m not much of a sequins girl but I made a list of possible things worth purchasing for my trip. Okay maybe I would consider a sequin top since this is the only place I can see that being acceptable. There are some things I already own but could upgrade seeing as this is a great excuse to do so.

Spring Shopping List

There are three factors that contribute to me wanting to go shopping. Either I haven’t bought clothes in a while (“a while” being relative), Zara is having a sale, or I have just cleaned out my closet of clothes I no longer wear. Fortunately for me, all three of these things are currently true so I’ve created a bit of a shopping list. This shopping list is a combination of spring trends and just a few other things I wish my closet currently had.

I bet you can gather which are the trends (this monochrome girl isn’t jumping at the bit to rock some yellow now is she?) and what are pieces I have my eye on. Huge spring trends include yellow, banker stripes, flat mules, and tulle. Every girl needs a good pair of mirrored sunnies and I’ll buy nearly anything with stripes (hi, blog name). I don’t necessarily need a new bralette, but Madewell has a lingerie collection I am absolutely obsessed with.

February Shopping List

The transitional fashion season is upon us. It’s not (that) cold anymore, but it’s also not that hot. It’s just….nice out. That really doesn’t stop me from online shopping or dreaming up everything my closet needs. Or what I think my closet needs anyway…

What Is My Closet Missing?

Ah, the discontent of my closet. A timely event that happens once every few months where I contemplate what I want to buy but probably shouldn’t. Whether it’s trendy pieces or upgrades to pieces I already own, there’s always something I’ve got my eye on. With the new year (and new year new me attitude) I’m considering the many ways to update my wardrobe and taking advantage of the sales.

  • Pleated skirt is the it skirt of the moment in the prettiest pale pink shade
  • Tote bag large enough for everything I need to carry around in life
  • Classic flats are a staple of any wardrobe always worth upgrading and updating because they are worn so frequently
  • Pink Blouse to add a little more trendy pink into the rotation
  • Nike leggings to replace ratty old loose leggings for hitting the gym (or running errands)
  • Statement sleeves are everywhere

What to Wear: New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is just a few days away, but for some, okay maybe just me, it’s hard to decide on what to wear. Sure, I’ve already written about sequins and shared some holiday party inspo, but when thinking about my own outfit I’ve been stuck in a rut. Do I wear a romper with a coat? Coated jeans and a sweater? That leather mini dress I’ve been eyeing at Zara for weeks? 

Choosing the perfect New Year’s Eve out truly depends on what your plans are. Of course, it’s going to be pretty cold outside and there’s a chance of rain which is disappointing to my plans (Which include spending a bit of time outside). Comfort (along with warmth) is essential because, like with anything, if you’re uncomfortable it will show. I think a short romper can easily been worn at parties taking place inside homes, restaurants, or clubs because the time spent outside will be minimal. Long jumpsuits are chic and can be worn anywhere while dresses are the most common choices for party attire.
