This season I’m looking forward to elevating my look a little. I’m partnering with Keds to do just that, by pairing fashion forward pieces with some of my more classic favorites.
Think runway meets the streets.
Like, with this look, lace isn’t exactly something that I own a ton of. I can honestly say that I can count the lace pieces I have on one hand, and even that’s being generous. But, when worn with casual, wear any and everywhere sneakers and my staple vintage inspired jeans, you get a look that is both cutting edge and trendy, yet minimalistic and chic at the same time.
My goal is to curate a fall wardrobe that can create outfits to take you from watching football, to apple picking, to wandering the city, to whatever.
It may not be spring quite yet, but Madewell just released new styles for the season. I would have tried a little harder to restrain myself, but with my trip to Palm Springs for Alt Summit next week, I felt there were a few things that would make my packing 1000 times easier.
So many good options, but there were three pairs that, for me, are major must-haves!
10″ High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Hank Wash | If you haven’t switched over to higher waisted jeans, then what are you waiting for? I wanted a pair of lighter washed jeans and these are perfection. Zero fear of showing anything no one wants to see when bending over in these bad boys. Plus they make it look like you have legs for days!
9″ High-Rise Skinny Crop Jeans in Bruce Wash| Cuffing my skinny jeans has become almost second nature. I’m 5’4″ and if, like me, you aren’t tall enough to be a supermodel, then these cropped jeans are the answer to your prayers. I’m really hoping for more jeans this length.
Destroyed jeans take a classic look to the next level.
They are also wicked expensive…and I’m broke.
That’s what makes diy so awesome!
Not only are they something fun to try, but that feeling of accomplishment afterwards, makes me feel like I can take on the world. And in these jeans, I can, now that I worked some diy magic on them.
I found (yes, found) a pair of Vigoss jeans that just happened to be my size. The only thing wrong with them is that they were missing the button.
I have distressed, ripped, and destroyed all kinds of denim in the past, but they never come out great. So I set my expectations low, by deeming my finds as practice jeans. But the results were far better than I could have hoped for!
Side note: Pay attention and don’t multitask when doing anything with a sharp blade. Sounds obvious, but I sliced my finger pretty badly and there was a lot of blood involved…No bueno!
