Girlfriend Jeans

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

       With the end of summer things are finally getting crossed off my list. My new place is starting to feel like home, all my paper work is done and delivered, I was able to attend all the fun summer events;) and now I can get new projects started! It’s been a stressful couple of months but if I’ve learned anything is that I need some ‘Me’ time, where I can focus on my goals and keep moving forward. I have many plans for next year so that will be taking much of my time, but I’ll try to keep up with my blog posts;)

For now I wanted to share with you my latest find, the Girlfriend Jeans. This fun reinvention has been around for a while, but I had yet to find the perfect pair.. until now! For those of you who are not familiar with the concept, they are the slightly slimmer version of the Boyfriend Jeans. The cut is just above the ankles, still a baggy look only more flattering and… I’m in love with them! To be honest, boyfriend jeans never fit me right but this new version is just what I’ve been looking for. I decided to style it with a button down shirt and wedges to balance out the baggy look;)

Love for Neutrals

          Lately I’ve been very inspired by soft colors. There’s something soothing about the cream and pale blue jeans combo that helps turn my busy day into a more relaxed & breezy one. I mean sure, Spring is all about the rich hues and Im usually the first to jump at any excuse to ad some color to my day, BUT lets not shy away from lighter tones. Its a classic that you can easily put an edge to, I dare you to reinvent neutrals;)

Fashion has always been a big part of my life so Im always on the look for new sources of inspiration, whether it comes from color, a new boutique, a twist on a existing brand or new designers out there. But lately I’ve been obsessing over one particular brand. Ever since Marissa Webb took over Banana Republic, the brand has evolved beautifully. Without going too far from what its base customer is used to, BR came up with a fresh + more chic look and Im definitely a fan! Its boy meets girl done right. Of course I couldn’t help but be inspired so here’s my take on it… with distressed jeans to keep it casual, nude heels and the organic feel of a lace blouse Im ready to go!
