Blouse: Zara (sold out, similar version here, here & here), Jeans: AG, Heels: Express (sold out, similar version here), Tote: Old Navy, Watch: Daniel Wellington, Bracelet: Madewell, Necklace: Gorjana As much as we all love the thrill of adding a new item to our closet, there's something to be said about those existing pieces you continue to reach for time and time again - those tried and true staples that trigger an instant confidence the minute you put them on. For me, that combination usually looks a little something like this: a classic button-down and a great pair of black skinny jeans (I've tried countless...

Bodysuit: Express, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: Express, Purse: Madewell (similar here) If you told me a few years ago that I'd own a bodysuit one day, I wouldn't have believed you. Yet here I am, welcoming a trend with open arms that I never thought I'd embrace. I had always filed bodysuits under the "mom" category, somewhere next to overalls and unflattering "mom jeans," but as trends from the 80s and 90s started to reemerge and I saw how chic they could look when styled properly, my sentiment shifted, and I found myself on the hunt for said items. Fortunately, there's an abundance to choose...

I have these that I wear often, but I wanted some that looked more classic. I was beginning to think they existed only for those lucky few who score a vintage pair at a thrift shop, but I finally stumbled across this pair that met all of my requirements. The mild distressing and wash are exactly what I was looking for, and they have the same vintage...

Tee: Brandy Melville, Jacket: Zara (similar here and here), Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: Forever 21 (similar here), Purse: Old Navy (similar here & here), Bracelets: Madewell, Sunglasses: CRAP Eyewear On those days where I'm struggling to put an outfit together, there are a few looks I tend to default to. They usually consist of something easy, like a romper or dress if the weather permits. But lately if I have to wear jeans, it's going to be these. They're the most comfortable pair of denims I've ever owned, so I have no guilt about wearing them as often as I do. And they go with...

Crop top & pencil skirt

Top: American Apparel, Skirt: Lovers + Friends (available here and here), Purse: Brandy Melville (similar here), Heels: Express, Lipstick: Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in "Aubergine - eggplant," Nail Polish: Essie in "Mink Muffs" Crop tops are one of a few re-emerging 90s trends that I love but had yet to really incorporate into my own style. I've owned this one for a while, but hadn't found the right opportunity to wear it. Maybe because it's a little more revealing than most of my other tops, or because its wear is pretty limited to warmer weather, but for whatever reason, it's been sitting in my closet for the last year. I packed...
