hot pink sweater & studded flats

sweater - via nordstrom / pants - h&m old / shoes - zara / bag - tory burch / necklace - forever21 / bracelets - kate spade & jcrew / watch - michael kors / rings - vintage & asos / shades - gucci

I swear outfits like these are literally my uniform, especially when the weather isn’t warm enough to be in my other uniform: a dress or a skirt. I loved how this sweater looks so conservative in the front and then BOOM its open in the back. Pretty awesome. I love wearing super girly bright clothes and adding a bit of edge to it to punch things up. These shoes from Zara definitely do the trick! I am so not a flats kind of girl; they just look so stuffy to me and it’s rare to find a pair that stands out like a killer heel would. With that being said I typically steer clear of flats – until I came across this pair which I’m absolutely head over flats in love with.  Not to mention they are comfortable enough to live in. They also come in a nude color. Seems like a good idea to have both. 
 ....and yes, sometimes I nonchalantly carry flowers in my purse.  ;)

boyfriends & parabul gurung

shirt - prabal gurung for target / jeans - gap / boots - anne klein / necklace - forever21 / clutch - south moon under / shades - h&m (old) / rings - tiffanys, sundance, catbird

The never ending search to find the perfect boyfriend jeans is finally over – thanks to gap! I swear any time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans there is always something off about the fit and I end up telling myself the trend is just not for my body type. But since I love this trend a lot, I very willingly tried on, oh probably somewhere in the ball park of my fortieth pair of boyfriend jeans - and they actually worked. I'm thrilled. I was super skeptical of them at first, I stood in the dressing room for a solid twenty minutes debating if the mirror was trying to trick me. But now that I have these, I can’t take them off. It’s like wearing sweatpants…but they’re jeans – quite the enigma I’m still trying to wrap my head around the whole concept. GENIUS.

If you don’t do anything else today – go try on these jeans.
