The DENIM Guide


The DENIM Guide

Shirt: J.Crew. Pumps: Gianvito Rossi {similar style here & here}. Overalls: Hollister. Bomber: Rag & Bone {similar style here & here}. 
Boyfriend jeans: J.Crew {my $25 pick!}. Skirt: AG Jeans . Eyeliner: Stilla 'Stay All Day'. Shorts: One Teaspoon. Cap: Madewell. Shoes: Loeffler Randall {eyeing these for fall}. Sunnies: Illesteva x J.Crew.


Just in time for the weekend (and fall), I wanted to share some of my go-to denim picks that are easy, effortless, & require little to no thought to put together.

I must confess though I'm not much of a jeans kinda girl -I'd wear a pair of loose, pajama-like pants any day-, there's nothing like a denim-on-denim ensemble (worn w/ your favorite pumps) or a casual weekend look of boyfriend shorts & a loose chambray to effortlessly show off your fuss-free chic sense of style. 

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, (if a such pair exist), & just yesterday stumbled across my new favorite pair at Target! Yes, you heard me right. TARGET! For $24.99, I found the most comfortable pair of bf jeans I've tried on thus far & they came w/ all the right details. A perfect mixture of dark & light, skinny at the bottom, & just the right amount of shredding, I seriously can't explain just how happy I am to have found them!

I highly recommend if you're missing out on some of the denim basics shown above you check out my picks & their alternatively cheaper friends! I did my research & think you guys will appreciate!


HAPPY WEEKEND!

Rompin Around

 
 Hat: Target. Romper: Shopbop {similar style here & here}. Shoes: Loeffler Randall. Clutch: vintage.  Necklace: Etsy. Watch: Aldo. Bangles: J.Crew.
 
Despite the grey skies and almost fall-like mood of the pictures, it was about 75 and {eventually} sunny when I got my photos taken. I snagged this romper about 2 weeks ago from Shopbop on major sale and seriously couldn't wait for our next heat wave to surface. Though we're still waiting on that wave to rear it's (not-so-ugly) head, I took full advantage of slipping into this easy number because frankly, it was the only thing I actually felt like wearing.
 
Paired with my favorite panama and Loeffler Randall sandals, ya'll know the ones I wore, here, here, and here,  {and in a bunch of other posts}, I stayed true to what I know and kept this look as simple as possible. And if I don't say so myself, I think I look quite alight. LOL.
 
Happy Humpday!

Fall Forward

FALL FORWARD

:LEFT TO RIGHT:

Bite Beauty lipstick in 'lilac'. Zara sandals. Bauble Bar earrings. Warehouse fedora {< $50}. Mango sweater. Tory Burch W.O.C
Topshop skirt {similar style here & here}. Sarch Chloe ring. Prada sunnies. Nine West pumps {currently on my wishlist!}

You can probably tell from this post that I'm looking forward to fall fashion. Though the summers here in California are usually warm and sunny, it's been quite chilli lately leading me to believe that fall is just around the corner {even though it kind of is!}

Though there's about 60 some-odd days until it's officially fall, I have my eye on some pieces that I think will serve me well-- i.e. things that I'll be able to freely mix-n-match without a hitch-- . I'm not sure what's gotten into me lately but I can definitely say that my style is becoming a little more streamlined and polished.

 Maybe it's just me but something tickles my fancy when I look through my wardrobe and  feel like everything I own I actually love & can wear for years to come regardless of the trends! 

Happy falling!
