Crop, Crop.


An outfit from a couple of posts ago I was talking about denim and how much I love a good pair of skinny jeans – a definite must-have in every girl’s wardrobe. In this post however, I’m focusing on denim too but in a completely different silhouette. I’m talking about the straight-leg crop jean!

I’ve always been a little skeptical to try a different silhouette outside of my regular boyfriend or skinny jeans that I’m used to but I came across these crop jeans while shopping at Nordstrom and instantly gravitated towards the frayed hems.

I’m all about showing off my ankles and having special details so these were the perfect fit. The worn-in look totally fits my laid back style too!

How do you feel about the straight-leg crop jean trend? Yay or Nay? Share!

Fall season is in full swing and although I’m still craving to wear thick knits and jeans with booties, I have to settle with just wearing cute jeans since the weather in LA is still fairly warm. Kinda sucks!

Anyway, I bought a couple of new jeans from Nordstrom, my definite go-to shop both on and off-line. I teamed up with Nordstrom to showcase how I style some of my favorite denim. My first pick was a pair of skinny cropped jeans from AG.

When it comes to skinny jeans, I always make sure they sit a bit low on my waist so I can tuck in my shirts from the front. I also like them to be cropped because I love showing off my shoes and ankles… it’s my thing. *insert blushing face here*.

I always tend to gravitate towards distressed jeans with rips and all but decided this time to grab a pair that was the complete opposite. Instead, I focused on a super nice wash and the right fit. Stay tuned for what my next pair of denim is!

About a week ago, I showed you how I styled my favorite go-to skinny jeans in this post… kinda easy breezy with classic pieces like a white button up + oxfords.

For this week, I’m showing you how I styled this relaxed fit boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity via Nordstrom. I always change between skinny and boyfriend because for me, they’re the most versatile kinda jeans to have. These boyfriend ones sit right on my hip so the slouchiness is extra comfy, which I love.

A little stripe top, pumps and pop of color never fails to make any boyfriend jeans look good… yes, even if your own boyfriends hates them.

Loving all the new stuff Nordstrom currently carries, with the hottest trends to carrying classic pieces too. Their denim selection however is my favorite because its a wide variety of styles and they have some of the best brands, you can’t beat that!

Don’t forget to pick up your favorite pair… especially since fall season is already here!
