Stripes & Levi's

I was thinking about the things I wear on here, and realized there was kind of a sense of dishonesty. Not in that what I wear isn't my style, but I never really capture my day to day outfits. To be honest, what I usually post on here I really tried to put together and make look nice according to my personal standards. I don't think that's a bad thing necessarily because I still very much like the things I wear and I actually do wear them, by rarely do I post what I wear on more laid back days when I don't feel the need to put some whole outfit together. So here you have it, a good go to of mine of stripes and a pair of 501s that are falling apart.

Well guys, I did it. I found a pair of bellbottoms that weren't over $100. Seriously though, I searched all over in LA and could not find a pair, but just happened to find the perfect ones in a small little vintage store in Orange County. And I only spent $15 on these ones. So may that be a lesson that sometimes you need just a little bit of obsessive persistence when it comes to thrifting. Now I'm just trying to restrain myself from wearing these every single day during the week.

What's a Girl to Do

These pants are probably one of the best finds I've ever had thrifting. Never would I have imagined actually finding a pair in this style that actually fits my waist! Now, if only I could have the same luck finding a pair of vintage bellbottoms.

5 Ways I'm Wearing Jeans This Summer

To be completely honest, I really don't like shorts. I don't exactly know why this is because they used to be my favorite thing. But sometime over the last 1.5 years I began to really dislike them. I really don't find them that comfortable (maybe that's just me) especially when brands usually make them way too short so I'm constantly having to pull them down. And I just love jeans. So if you're anything like me, you're not quite ready to say goodbye to jeans over the next few months. Here are 5 ways I plan on continuing to wear jeans this summer:

1. The Culottes

Probably the closest I'd like to come to shorts. I'm looking to pair them with a strapless top, basically a skirt top, for the perfect breezy summer look.

2. The Cropped Skinny

I absolutely love the ankle-bearing skinny (scandalous!). And here is the genius part of this- no longer will your ankles be cold when you wear them! I'm looking to tuck in a bright top and wear lace up gladiator sandals with them, as well as a matching brown belt.

3. The Bellbottoms

I have yet to find the perfect high waisted flared jeans that aren't $200. But when I do, I'll be a changes woman. This style is obviously trendy right now, and I plan on channeling Jane Birkin with a good fitted t-shirt.

4. White Denim

My obsession with black as completely changed into that of white, which makes this white denim trend perfect. Of course I'm going to use them to go for a Parisian look (my favorite style), and throw a bandana in there. Bonus Points: find a pair of white mom jeans.

5. The Overalls 

Did overalls really ever go out? I don't know but I've definitely switched from being tired of seeing them to loving them again. However I will not settle with short overalls, they have to be long. I plan on embracing a tom boy style with them, but throwing in a fun feminine piece like this bag to kind of switch things up.

What do you guys think? How are you planning to wear jeans this summer?
