Hey guys! How’s everyone doing on this windy Thursday afternoon? Today I wanted to share a new favorite outfit of mine featuring my new pair of distressed high-waisted boyfriend jeans. I was very against this trend for a long time because I always preferred tight skinny jeans. I also felt that this style only looked good on taller women. I was surprised to find a pair of petite loose fit boyfriend jeans that fit perfectly. I love that these can be dressed up, or down and look vogue AF with a pair of heels (or booties). I definitely fit in with my hipster neighborhood (Fishtown). FYI, I’m linking all outfit details at the very bottom of the post.
I feel like owning one pair of boyfriend jeans is a staple in your closet. One of the things I look for when I shop for new clothes is versatility. Will I only be wearing this item once or will it become a go-to piece in my wardrobe? Of course I splurge on some statement pieces once in a while, but mostly I like to shop for timeless classics I’ll come back to for years to come.
These jeans are from American eagle (snagged them on a 50% off sale), my top is from loft, and my pointed pumps are Vince Camuto.
In my second set of photos, I wanted to show this outfit combined with some color. I firmly believe every woman needs a red coat in their wardrobe. Why? They are bold and completely timeless. They’re perfect for the holidays, the month of February, and all winter long. I purchased this red coat a couple years ago at Neiman Marcus (Trina Turk), so it probably isn’t around anymore. Also, I changed my footwear to make it more “street-style”. These booties were so inexpensive and remain my go-to’s for the cold months. They’re so comfortable and can be paired with many outfits. I received them as a gift last winter and the brand isn’t too well known (Carlos Santana). My Louis Vuitton crossbody bag was a gift from my wonderful mother for my 25th birthday. If you’re going to splurge on a designer bag, let it be on Louis Vuitton. You’ll carry it everywhere from work, to vacations, and other outings. Mine is the perfect mid-sized bag that won’t weigh you down or hurt your shoulders when carried like as a crossbody. Please don’t mind my facial expressions, I really have to work on those!
I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have a great rest of your day!
