DON’T JUDGE A TREND BY ONE LOOK

Details: Almond green bomber jacket Marshall’s, similar here | Embroidered weekender jeans c/o J.Jill, here |

I’ll admit, I really wasn’t a fan of the bomber jacket trend. Not the traditional bomber jacket, but the lightweight bomber ones. There was something about them that I couldn’t take seriously. It was an episode of Southern Charm where Chelsea was wearing this really cute metallic blush bomber jacket, that I said I NEED one. I went to so many stores, scoured the internet for something similar but there was nothing. I actually gave up and quit my search until I walked into Marshall’s and stumbled upon this Kensie almond green bomber jacket with black trim. It’s shiny–not exactly metallic, but it’s perfect. The weather has been so ideal for light bomber jacket weather, so you can imagine how much I’ve been wearing it. Then, there were embroidered jeans: another trend I really couldn’t get behind. I don’t know what it was about them that I didn’t like. I guess I kind of felt like they were tacky and outdated (not in a good way). Again, I was wrong. It just took the right embroidered jeans to change my mind. These Weekender jeans from J.Jill have blue and green stem flowers, making it understated and classy. I feel like when there’s a really bold color flower it’s difficult to style, but these go with everything. They”re super versatile and a really fun way to change up your wardrobe in the fall months. I guess I need to take my own advice and not judge a trend by one or two looks… you have to try it out for yourself.

What trends were you wrong about?

KEEP YOUR CLASSICS

There’s something charming about classic baby blue high-waisted denim. They remind me of Saved by the Bell, I always envied Kelly’s style and locks—vintage for the win. The other day I was flipping through Glamour Magazine’s September issue and I noticed that many of the looks for fall were minimalist and classic. It’s true, ‘class’ never goes out of style, your typical white top and blue jeans will forever remain an outfit staple. I’m all for taking on trends, even if they don’t have a long shelf life, but I think it’s more important to stock you closet full of pieces that can be worn for much longer than one season. This (old) ZARA sleeveless sweater top is one that I’ve had for about 2 years now, it’s so easy to wear. I especially love its high neck, and although it’s a knit it’s well fitted, not bulky or baggy. Speaking of well fitted, these NYDJ Sheri slim jeans are not made with lightweight denim, but they are undeniably slimming and incredibly comfortable. The lightweight denim is perfect for the warmer months, easy to navigate through the heat. So if you feel like you’re in an outfit rut, pull out some of your classics—you can’t go wrong!

MAGIC PANTS

DSC_0410 editedDSC_0413 editedDSC_0425 editedDSC_0448 editedDSC_0444 editedDSC_0443 edited 2DSC_0445 editedDetails: Ami Super Skinny Twill Optic White denim, c/o NYDJ, here  | Abercrombie & Fitch sleeveless black top, similar here | Halogen point toe studded t-strap flats, here |

I think it’s every girls dream to slip on a pair of jeans and instantly look thinner and sleek. What if I told you there’s a pant for that? That’s right, NYDJ jeans are designed to make you look one size smaller, they even suggest that you purchase a size down from normal. How does it work? Well, let’s get technical here, the pockets are strategically placed, all jeans are high rise with a patented criss-cross panel design that flattens in the front, not to mention their Lift Tuck technology does exactly that, lifts and tucks making your butt look FABULOUS.  At first I didn’t believe it either, but after wearing these skinny white denim pants for a day and receiving some positive remarks about how I looked, I’m a BELIEVER. They are game changing, and I especially love the three front zippers since they’re unlike any others I own. A simple sleeveless black top was only necessary, considering these jeans are already stealing the spotlight. Just trust me, you’ll never find another pair of pants that eliminates your guilt for skipping the gym.
