It’s no secret that I love distressed denim. 99% of the time I’d rather purchase a pair of jeans with holes rather than ones without. Older people always ask me that ridiculous question, “did you pay for those holes?”….absolutely, I did.

Denim is one of my most coveted sections of my wardrobe (second to shoes) because they’re my comfort zone. For me, it’s part of my go-to look I discussed in this recent post. I RARELY get rid of my denim, because I know at some point they’ll be used again. Hang on to your denim, TRUST. There are 3 things I love most in a good pair of distressed denim; soft hand, a little stretch, & good holes. The next best thing? When your denim purchase doesn’t break the bank. I typically buy designer denim (only because my hips/legs are not proportional to standard sizing & they just seem to fit me better) but I recently bought these (under $70/selling out quick) for spring/summer because I have them in black (worn in this post) and I’m obsessed. The ones I’m wearing above cost me a pretty penny, but I’ve had them for 2.5 years now and worn them a million times (so obviously they’re worth it). My next two purchases will be these & these!

P.S. If you’re wanting the same look for an even more affordable price ($24-$50 range), there’s tons of good options here 🙂

Happy St.Patty’s Day y’all!!

A quick/way overdue post today on my obsession with leopard print (and furs of course) for you guys today! What woman doesn’t love this print? I love how this leopard print fur vest adds a little bit of sexy to any look. As promised, I’ve been keeping my out for furs that go on sale and I’ve found PLENTY! I’ve included some of my other favorite leopard print fur vests that are ALL on SALE below!

St.Patty’s Day is just around the corner, but I’ll be celebrating early so I’m looking forward to this weekend! I’m heading down to Houston to see my sister and we’re going to a pub crawl so that should be wild/crazy fun. Do y’all have any fun plans for St.Patty’s?

This is what I like to call an ‘Off Duty’ look — your go-to outfit when you have nowhere to be/nothing to do. If I didn’t have to leave my hotel room and bare the freezing temps, rest assured I would’ve stay in my PJ’s…but it was our only day off in NYC, so we took full advantage of it. And by full advantage I mean bottomless brunch with new Dallas blogger friends of Selah and Sam, roaming the streets or NYC, shopping, and doing everything we could to stay warm while doing so!

When I have nowhere important to be & I’m not taking blog photos, my every day look is pretty simple. I totally believe less is MORE (…well not always, but here yes).  In true tomboy fashion– jeans + basic tee +comfortable shoes = my go-to (I had to swap my tee for a sweater here because it was FREEZING cold). Something easy to throw on, comfortable, and doesn’t take a lot of thought. I hoard basic items in my closet because I know I will get the most use out of them! Oh, and anything soft or cozy…I can’t resist.

P.S.Did I mention how cold it was during NYFW?? I couldn’t feel my face while shooting these photos!!!!

What is your go-to off duty look? I would love to hear, please share in the comments below! XO.

CURRENTLY CRUSHING: FRENCH CONNECTION

French Connection 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

If you haven’t seen French Connection’s new Spring 2015 collection, this is what you’ve been missing out on. Above are my favorite picks (hard to even choose because it’s all so dreamy). Can we talk about how amaze this colorful splatter print is? I’ll take one of each style please!

I’m trying to start incorporating more simple staple pieces into my wardrobe & this pastel blue two piece set (top & bottom) are clearly at the top of my wish-list. I’m probably stating the obvious because I’m such a tomboy at heart, but the simplicity of a menswear tailored (2 piece matching) suit is everything to me! Lastly, I’m currently obsessing over these patent Ronan shoe boots that I took with me to a New York Fashion Week and wore in a recent post here. I got so many compliments on these!! If you get them, I recommend going a full size up. Happy Monday loves, thank you for stopping by! XO.

70’s Vibes at NYFW

This look: Inspired by the Spring 2015 70’s trend (yes, the 70’s are making a massive comeback). Oddly enough, my parent’s grew up in the 70’s and they despise all of my Jeffrey Campbell shoes haha. You either love or hate them…obvi I happen to love them because they’re so funky/different. Luckily I went on a JC platform streak about 4-5 years ago + I’m a shoe hoarder, so needless to say — I’m not complaining about this trend making a comeback.

I started off NYFW Day 4 attending the Tommy Hilfiger show. Let me just say, getting an invite to this show was a maj moment for me. I remember being at fashion week for the first time back in September and gasping when seeing all the Instagram photos following his SS15 show. Nobody puts on a production quite like Hilfiger does..it was literally an indoor football stadium using the field as his runway. Genius! From varsity motifs to classic All-American sportswear…this show was perfection. Little did I know, things would only get better that afternoon when I got to have cocktails & mingle with Mr & Mrs Hilfiger at the Dee Ocleppo handbag event/cocktail party (if you follow me on instagram — you know how bad I was geeking out).

P.S. This day was the most mild (if you can imagine that) but my ears literally felt like they were going to fall off. Mad props to the local’s that endure that weather for as long as they do.

XO.

Happy Monday Y’all!! A quick post on another casual look I wore during fashion week. If you can’t tell, comfort is a key component for me. These jeans are the most comfortable jeans EVER…I’m not even kidding, they feel like you’re wearing sweatpants. I’ve had them for over a year (the knee hole is from natural distress), but lucky for you they still exist. If you’re going to purchase a single pair of boyfriend jeans, these would be my recommendation.  I promise you will want to live in them!!

Justin (my photographer) told me I looked like a mobster, but I love everything about this look….actually one of my favorites thus far. It’s boyish, but a little feminine at the same time. P.S. these new French Connection patent booties of mine are the bomb. I can think of a million ways I’m going to style them and can’t wait to show y’all. More looks from fashion week to come and a re-cap of my trip to the Dominican Republic later this week. Happy Monday! xx
