Higher and Higher

By now I've gotten rid of almost all of my low-mid rise jeans. There's something about high waisted jeans that feels so right these days. Maybe it's about my age and wanting a little more coverage, but I'm finding a higher rise is so much more flattering. 

I've picked up a few from Citizens of Humanity on MAJOR sale but I'm also loving these J Brand options I've been checking out from good old T.J. Maxx

Will you be trading in your jeans too??

Denim Dreaming

Maybe it's this last heat wave of the summer or maybe it's all the stores with their fall fashions, but I find myself longing for cooler weather. I miss my jeans! As someone who (thankfully) can wear whatever they want to work, denim plays a huge part in my wardrobe. Shirts, vests, overalls, skirts; you name it, I'm down. 

I've rounded up some of my new favorite styles that are sure to get you through fall, winter and beyond. And of course, that won't break the bank.

Fall Wardrobe Essentials; Day 10

Whew! It only took over a month, but we're finally at the last day of our fall wardrobe essentials! Today is all about the anchor of all of the looks we've been talking about, and probably the biggest denim trend over the last year, relaxed denim.

From mom jeans to boyfriend jeans to high waists and dropped crotches, "relaxed jeans" run the gamut. If you're new to this trend, I suggest keeping the wash clean and on the dark side and adding a heel to balance out the extra volume. For those of you who've been on this trend for the last few years, have fun with destruction, exaggerated proportions and color.

Daily Deal

Today I'm sharing my all-time favorite cut offs from this summer- the destroyed boyfriend short from American Eagle. Do NOT think you're too old to shop at juniors stores! Juniors brands often knock-off high end denim designers like J Brand, AG, and Rag & Bone- and do a great job at it.

The relaxed, boyfriend fit and longer length here make these versatile for many body types. I actually bought 2 sizes- one in my normal size and one size bigger for a slouchier look. I love that these can be thrown over your bikini on the beach or paired with a chambray shirt and heeled sandals for a casual date night.
