I remember just a few years ago how big of a deal jeans were to me. I literally only wore super skinny black jeans, if they weren’t skinny I wasn’t wearing them. As time passed, I began wearing boyfriend/girlfriend jeans and eventually high waist mom jeans. Now, I practically walk past every pair of jeans in site when shopping. Don’t get me wrong, jeans are the easiest thing to throw on when all else fails but I’m okay with a little challenge when it comes to my outfits. Skirts, dresses, jumpers/rompers have been my go to’s lately. I feel less restricted and more myself.
Every now & then there’s a pair of jeans that catch my eye & make it impossible for me to turn away. Bell bottoms, culottes, any distressed and embroidered jeans always grab my attention & make me reconsider minimizing my jean collection. That clearly will explain my infatuation for these AH-mazing high waist-wideleg- distressed hem Free People jeans ! I was in awe from the moment I laid eyes on them. In 10 seconds I imagined all the different outfits I could put together based on this one pair of jeans.On this day I paired these babies with a orange button up blouse I stumbled upon at the Salvation Army, my new straw bag purchased at the Goodwill (I love the wooden handles), tan tasseled mules from Espirt, and a pair of STUNNING gold earrings purchased from Aldo’s! (Aldo’s? I asked myself the same thing)

I’m all about statement items that are also practical. I love being able to dress my outfits up or down and not be confined to one particular style. Be on the look out for me wearing these jeans with flats, sneakers, booties, you name it I’m wearing it.
If it isn’t easy to figure out I LOVE being a female, this post right here should finalize that thought. Yeah we have our tough days that I’m sure men will NEVER understand or be able to relate but that just makes us even more magical. Any who, when it comes to fashion, being a female is so much moreee intriguing. I mean we can kill it in the simpliest outfit when paired with the right killer heels & accessories but if you’re versatile like me, I like to throw on some kicks and an oversized men’s shirt, jacket, jeans, shorts, you name it! If it fits me then it works, men’s or women’s.
Versatility is a must when you’re a thrifter honestly, vintage items just don’t fit the same. For example, “mom jeans” aka 90’s style high waisted jeans run super-duper small, making it almost impossible to find the perfect pair if you have any type of hips or a booty. So shopping in the men’s area would definitely benefit anyone with any type of curves looking for vintage denim. If you’re going for the off the shoulder button up shirt/ jacket trend, you’re more than likely going to find the perfect fit in the men’s area as well. Let’s just face it, men can be good for something right ? ( haha just kidding)
On this particular day, besides my kicks, my entire fit was thrifted ! ( I love when that happens) I wore a button up cropped wrap top I purchased from the Goodwill thrift store, a pair of men’s linen pleated shorts purchased from the East Village Thrift Store, my favorite wicker basket bag also purchased from the Goodwill , & a pair of white Stan Smith Adidas I caught on super sale from Macy’s. I honestly love comfort, comfort will ALWAYS be key when it comes to me.
This past week I’ve really been enjoying my time to myself, accidentally, if that makes sense ? I haven’t had the urge to be on social media as much as I normally do, I haven’t been hanging out as much as I normally would & if I have to be honest I haven’t really wanted to. This gave me lots of time to think and focus on what’s most important, myself! Sometimes we need a mental detox, even if that means missing out on the latest gossip or passing up a night out in the city. I’ve been pleasantly happy, without force, no second thoughts, just happy.

The past few days I’ve really been thinking hard about comfort. As in, what are you comfortable with in your life at the moment ? Plenty of times we achieve a goal in our lives and we become comfortable with it instead of pushing ourselves for an even greater accomplishment. The thought of me feeling so comfortable with myself knowing there’s so much more to life, scares the shit out of me. Therefore, when I get this feeling of “comfort” I find a way to make my self uncomfortable. Discomfort keeps me on my toes, makes me more aware, and allows me to evolve into something even greater.

This past week I took a lot of time to myself to think deep and hard about a few things. Some negative & some positive, both playing a big part in my life. Along this journey of becoming a better me, I’ve concentrated a lot on how to change my mood in any negative situation and turn it into a positive. How can that be done you might ask ? Here are 5 ways to get out of a funk and start your journey to living your best life. Continue reading
If you had to describe your style in one word, what word would that be ? This is literally the hardest question I’ve ever been asked !(I’m not kidding) I admire anyone that could confidently answer that question without a second thought. I would describe my style as RAW, if that makes sense. Raw meaning, I wear what I feel like wearing, without anyone’s permission. Continue reading
How many of you guys missed Coachella this year ? Ugh I promise myself next year I will make it there, hopefully the line-up is just as good. The perfect weather this weekend slightly concealed the fact that I was stuck in New York. I threw on my – Continue reading
