Trend Talk Tuesday

Add heading (1).png

From ruffles to patchwork, to button details, these denim skirts are all a fresh take on an old classic. As I’ve said previously, I swore off denim skirts well over a decade ago, but these beauties have me eating my words and then some! I love the super 70’s vibes of the patchwork and the more professional take with longer midi lengths and ruffles. They pair perfectly with both a simple white tee or statement top. Anyone else loving this trend?

 

Below are some of my current favs I cannot wait to try!

A New Take

Jeans are one of those clothing items I firmly believe you can never have too many of. When I stumbled across this pair right before the 4th I immediately fell in love! The subtle writing and designs all over give them a unique feel that separates them from the rest of the pairs already in my closet. And while they paired almost too perfectly with this red and white striped shirt just in time for the holiday, I know I’ll be wearing them all summer long in a variety of different ways—well, as soon as the temperature becomes slightly more tolerable. Anyone else still melting from SoCals latest heatwave?

Blue Lace Cami

Lace camis are a closet staple that I can’t live without!

Along with good denim, I believe that you can never have too many camisoles. They are the simplest way to elevate an outfit or even loungewear. I have a collection that spans many different colors and brands, but the one featured about was a gift from a girlfriend last year from the Goldhawk sample sale (she turned me onto the brand when she used to work there and it’s been my favorite for years). The silk and lace are perfect for adding a little extra something when you just want to wear jeans but want to add a bit of pizazz. I love layering them under a good leather jacket to play with the textures and style of the outfit–I don’t tend to like overly feminine looks. I also decided that it was too perfect to pair with these Minkpink jeans (last seen here) for an outfit remix before I part ways with them (although I’m still tempted to buy them).

🌬 Baby It’s Cold Outside 🌬

We’ve been experiencing an extreme (for LA) cold front and I’ve been doing my best to layer so I don’t freeze.

To distract myself from this hellish weather I decided to give one of my favorite pairs of jeans a little update over the weekend (last seen here) to spruce them up a bit.

I love the undone hem that’s been popular on skinny jeans for a while now, but couldn’t justify adding another pair of denim to my already large collection.

So I did the most logical thing—DIY project baby!

All you need are a seam ripper and an iron. It’s as easy as that! 

I was a little bit nervous about potentially ruining a beloved pair of jeans, but I must say I’m absolutely thrilled with the results.

Contrary to what my face might say in the picture above ☝🏻 (it was 45 degrees and I was trying to actively not grimace at the wind). 

Anyone else looking forward to warmer temps? This girl sure is!
