Last Call for Summer 2014: Most-Loved Jeans

F21 Nautical Striped Top, F21 Boyfriend Jeans, Swedish Hasbeens Sky High Peep Toes, Free People Straw Hat
 Kavango River Bracelet c/o Hugssy, Lisa Rosado x Armed & Readi Tortoise Glam Studs,
 Jewelmint Ring, American Apparel Sunnies, F21 Satchel

Confession: I have a history of being a bit of a denim snob so it came as a total surprise to me that my most-loved jeans this summer were from Forever 21 for just under $25! You heard right! Your girl knows how to shop ;)

I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, asked for advice and couple of friends recommended I check out F21's boyfriend jeans. I went online to peruse their selection when I noticed this pair had 5 star reviews. Still skeptical, I went ahead and purchased them. I mean, 25 buckaroos for a pair of jeans!? Not much to lose! Little did I know these jeans would become my summer staple jeans, which I will definitely be rocking into fall with my super cute booties. 

If you are on the hunt for a great pair of boyfriend jeans at an excellent price point, definitely check out F21's selection, but act quick! They sell out very fast! Size tip: I went true to size opting for a more "girlfriend" fit (a little more fitted than the boyfriend), but if you want the boyfriend fit, go a size or two up!

Last Call For Summer 2014: Most-Loved Dress


Free People Clipperton Fedora, Cloak & Dagger Babydoll Dress, F21 Western Ways Booties
Karen Walker Limited Edition Number 1 in Black Critter

Oh, summer whites! So pure, clean & hot weather friendly!
You are perfection against a summer tan! I am loving whites this season and my most-loved summer dress has by far been this adorable white Babydoll Dress with neon & black stitched detailing from Cloak & Dagger.

This dress is the epitome of the perfect festival, beach & day dress! Super feminine, light and airy, which is exactly why I love to edge it out a bit by pairing this cutie pie with black accessories. Have a similar dress in your closet? Work light, flowy dresses into early fall and spring by throwing on a moto jacket or to keep it sweet & feminine with a cropped jean jacket!

I can't help but want to dance & prance around in the green, green grass under the hot summer sun in this easy, breezy little number!

Last Call For Summer 2014: Most-Loved Shorts

Free People Hat, Top & Cardi, Free People Lacey Denim Cutoff Shorts in Aero Wash, Lisa Rosado x Armed & Readi 
Boho Chic Necklace, Modern Vice Vintage Jett Booties, F21 Mini Flap-Top Crossbody

 I have a knack for purchasing multiple colors and prints of styles that I'm crazy over! Seriously. I've been prone to buying 2 or 3 of the same dress, tops, shoes & bottoms that I can't stop obsessing over.
Two brands that get me every-single-time: Free People & Modern Vice.

Last spring I discovered the sweetest pair of cutoff shorts from Free People and had about 3 different washes in my cart, when I reeled myself in and opted for one color--the daisy wash. I was proud of myself during the initial transaction but the hunger to obtain another pair haunted me all summer long. THANKFULLY, Free People brought back the best-selling Lacey Denim Cutoff Shorts in various washes so I immediately ran over to purchase my second pair in aero wash and guys, I still want more! Call me crazy, but they are so cute! I love the length and how they swoop so that they are lower in the front and back and a little bit shorter on the sides! I find that they are super flattering in comparison to most "cutoff" shorts.

This outfit personifies how to work in some of your summer gear & make them appropriate for early fall. Throw on your favorite basic tee, a long knit cardi, your favorite booties, your signature wool felt hat, the perfect accessories & out the door you go looking effortlessly cool & appropriately dressed for the slightly cooler weather ahead ;)

Hmmm....September 1st is right around the corner. I may have to use my annual FP birthday discount promo code on another pair of these shorts! :P
