I’ve always loved the idea of ‘boyfriend jeans’. They’re those pair of jeans that are broken in just right, almost making you think you’re wearing your pjs. If done right, they should be a pair that are still flattering towards your figure. With my petite frame, I’ve struggled to find a pair of boyfriend jeans that I actually like. They are either too wide in the legs or saggy in the rear- making me look as if I was wearing my husband’s jeans. Thankfully after months (ok maybe a year) of searching, J.Crew saved the day (as they always do)! These boyfriend jeans are not only the perfect wash, but are flattering while still having that boyfriend/comfy feel. While they are great worn with a tee, I decided to dress mine up with some strappy heels.
I picked up this Free People dress a few weeks ago and new it would be the perfect addition to transition into Fall. While it has long sleeves, the fabric is still light and breathable allowing me to wear it during this warmer weather. It was the perfect outfit for wine tasting and exploring Sonoma this weekend. I can’t wait to pair it with some boots when it get’s colder-I have my eye on these beauties!
Without a doubt, I would definitely describe my style as being feminine or ‘girly girl’. I have always gravitated towards pinks, florals and lady like details and will never shy away from dresses or skirts. I love to mix my ultra feminine, soft pieces with items that are quite opposite to create different looks. This white skirt is one of my favorite pieces in my closet (last seen here). It screams ‘girly’ with it’s white pleats and black ribbon trim on the waist band. However, this faux leather biker jacket is more on the edgy side with it’s heavier fabric and silver hardware detailing. By mixing the two different pieces, I created a balanced look that is still mature and polished.
Tomorrow officially marks the ‘first day of fall’ , but I couldn’t resist over the weekend pulling out my hats and sweaters. Because this sweater is on the looser/slouchy side, I made sure to pair my skinnies with it to keep it balanced.
July 18th will forever be the best day ever. I got to marry my best friend amongst my closest friends and family. It was an intimate and magical day set in the Berkeley hills with a beautiful redwood grove as the backdrop. The day was filled with so much love and just looking back at these photos gets me teary eyed. I’ll spare you the mushy words though and let the pictures do the talking.
