When I bought these jeans I was a little unsure on how they would be received. They really go against the denim trends of the moment considering they are a light wash and a flare leg. However, I loved the way they fit and thought they were a stand out piece – which is a little unusual for me since the majority of my jeans are pretty basic. Now after having owned them for about a year, I’m so glad I bought them. They are the perfect item to pair with other basics, like a simple blouse and navy blazer.
Don’t be afraid to buy things that might be a little against current trends if it’s something you really love. It’s these types of purchases that will help you establish your own personal style!
I’m really digging this necklace from Saressa Designs. I’ve worn it practically every day since it came in the mail. Nature inspired jewelry like this reminds me of my style when I was in college. I embraced the free-spirited side of my personality, and this definitely reflected through my fashion choices. A couple of years later, one of the resident assistants in my dorm told my best friend that he used to call us the “indie rock duo”. Ha! My style has developed still then, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love items like this!
