Simplicity

It seems like I've been indulging in a ton of new denim these days, from COH to 7FAM, Rag&Bone, etc. but seeing as how I have always been a fan of that "plain white tee and jeans" look, this new pair will certainly be worn for many more days to come. I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of distressed jeans in a grey shade and I finally found them in the J Brand 620 skinny jeans. Some may say a look like this is too boring or simple but some days just call for something easy. Adding a patterned scarf and my favorite necklace made this the perfect outfit for a relaxing Saturday afternoon.

These 620 Skinnies fit perfectly and I find that a good pair of jeans should fit you in all the right places. Jeans should be flattering and give you a shape that you're proud to show off. It's okay to do a little denim dance to get into them in the morning, but no one likes having to pull up their jeans throughout the entire day. Knee rips seem to show off the right amount of skin at the right place in order to elongate the legs. I love it so much that I may have to start "knee-ripping" some of my older jeans. Pairing these with a plain white tee will always work and if you want to dress it up, just add a statement necklace or scarf, pick the right shoes and just go for it! Have a great rest of the week, everyone!

  1. I love those booties, they're super cute. I have a bit of an obsession with camel and chestnut boots. I have a million pairs, but not even one black pair. Perhaps its time to invest? You can never go wrong with a classic t shirt and jeans. Have a great day, its chilly here in Jersey!

    1. Thanks so much! I got them for a steal at Zara, I've been indulging in tons of black shoes this season too. These booties were only $99 and I'm sure they're even cheaper now that there's a sale. :) Thanks so much Ana!
