When it comes to brand name denim, I’ve always been a Rock & Republic kinda girl. I’m also a very loyal gal so I seldom stray away from something that I like, so with that being said, I have never owned, or even so much as tried on, a pair of 7 for all Mankind jeans. Well…the other day when I was trying on jeans, my size only seemed to be available in a pile of 7 Jeans and so I gave them a shot. Holy smokes – where have these jeans been all my life!? (Well apparently everywhere, I was just too busy avoiding them) Not only did they fit PERFECTLY, but they have got to be the most comfiest jeans I have ever owned! (They feel like a nice pair of soft yoga pants – none of that stiff denim feel). I usually struggle with finding jeans (or even pants) with a proper waist to hip ratio for my body type and a lot of times I end up having to buy a size up just to get them over my hips only to be left with a baggy waistline. But not with these bad boys, snug as a bug! 7 For All Mankind indeed – I am a newly converted believer! Styled here with Nasty Gal summer staples (crochet knit + bralette).

Wore this to work the other day and the only reason I had on a jean jacket was to combat the frigid temperatures of the office. However, I ended up really liking how the denim jacket accented the whole outfit, and so I put it back on for pictures even though it was scorching hot. I’ve always enjoyed mixing pink and blue together for a cotton candy kinda look so I upped the ante a bit by throwing floral and leopard prints into the mix.

From last week wearing a vintage navy blue gingham skirt, styled with a lace back navy top and white ballet flats for an afternoon stroll. Threw in some leopard detailing for a little bit of pattern mixing to spice things up a bit. Sorry for the lack of posts lately but we’ve been enjoying our summers a bit much now that warm weather finally hit up here, and keeping the blog up to date has been a bit challenging. Check out my Instagram if you’d like to keep up in real time.

Spent the morning lounging downtown last weekend, wearing recyclables consisting of Zara skinnies, Aeropostale knit, biker jacket and moccasins. Really wanted to wear fancier shoes but had to accept the fact that > 4″ heels would not be most suitable for an afternoon of walking. But all was not lost as I finally got a chance to wear this beauty from Chocolate: a perfectly crafted cobalt blue crossbody with just enough leopard print details. Have to admit I am rather impressed with the amount of stuff I was able to get into this bag…with room to spare!
