I’ve finally got my hands on a pair of kick flare jeans to give a try and I couldn’t  be happier. I’ve specifically been eyeing these ones from Asos because the color and wash appeared to be right where I wanted it and the price was low enough to justify a try out purchase. The jeans are a light mid wash, straight leg, pricing at $48. Stay close for more on kick flared jeans and in the meantime shop a few others below:

Testing Basics |The White T- Shirt

As some of you may know, around this time last year I made my test on a few basics, starting with the plain white tee. Unfortunately the interest died out then but I’m ready to give it another try.  “So why begin with the white t- shirt?”, you may ask; I think of a plain white tee, as mentioned previously, as a blank canvas almost. It can be styled in more ways than I can describe making it a universal classic.

Here I’ve chose to style my Everlane Box Cut Cotton Tee casually and comfortable, which from what I’ve see is what most people go for when styling a t- shirt. The fit of this particular t- shirt is easier to style than I had expected. The box cut ensures that there is no shape at all which I’ve grown to appreciate. It looks amazing with jeans and those “boyish” looks.

It’s a no brainer that denim is a trend and a staple that will be around forever. We’ve seen from the most ground breaking of details and cuts like patches and frayed hems to the shockingly flattering silhouettes like mom jeans. With all these new and exciting styles to wear your jeans I always feel secure going back to my simple skinny jeans. Super wide legs will eventually fall out and maybe back in our interests a few times but a good tight fitted jean will last a lifetime, I believe. I’ts almost hard to believe there was a time we weren’t wearing them. I prefer a high waist dark denim styled with a classic white shirt.

In this look I wore my jeans with a shirt dress to show the versatility of something so basic as a pair of jeans. I chose gold hardware accessories to brighten up the dark look. Ballet flats would make a great alternative to the pumps for comfort. Add on a faux fur gilet for a colder climate.

The Basic of Basics

img_7069

Hello everyone and happy hump day! We made it halfway through the week and we’re awesome! Today, aka last week, I am wearing the basic of basics, denim. Denim is our timeless best friend, it never goes out of style and is ALWAYS on trend. And what better way to compliment a basic than with a basic? This day was all about comfort while walking all over campus and doing errands like a mad person and I chose to wear my Mango cotton tee. My H&M denim skirt are slightly stretchy, so they’re easy to walk in and don’t ride up much while walking long distances. Of course I am wearing my new favorite shoes, my Asos, on the go, mules. I added the denim jacket for that cool double denim look and to break up the monochromatic look. All of the pieces worn in this look are timeless, basic items that’ll out last most style trends and match with anything in my wardrobe.
