HELLO AND HAPPY SPRING! Today’s outfit is a big step for me – I’ve been trying this whole “not wearing so much black” thing and it’s been very, very difficult. Not only is this outfit perfect for spring, but it’s also feminine enough while still being casual and comfy!
There are a few specific pieces of this outfit that I especially want to touch on today: my jeans and my little pink flats. But before we get into all that, I want to point out that J. Crew Factory’s sale is on sale (*squeals*), making my scarf only $10 (I just ordered the pink one). C’mon, if you don’t jump on that, you’re crazy!
I’m at the point that I wear jeans basically every day, but what can I say – I love them. I picked up this pair a couple weeks ago because I love, love, loved the raw hem on them and I have been living in them ever since. They’re super fun for date night and give an edgy feel when paired with a feminine off the shoulder top and chunky heels. They do fit snug at first (& even after you dry them!) but they do stretch out a bunch, so I definitely recommend sizing down! I bought my regular size only because I didn’t want to wait for them to come in the mail in a smaller size, but I personally don’t mind the stretch! They’re comfier and give off a “girlfriend jean” vibe but don’t feel like they’re falling down even though they get baggy in some spots!
Other denim I’m crushing on:
Another one of my go-tos lately has been these darling pink flats. I’m not one that typically reaches for pink, so these flats came as a surprise to me. I had been absolutely lusting over the grey ones, but when I saw the pretty pink-y blush color up in person, I just knew I had to have them. And guys, they’re so freakin’ comfy!! I never chose the right times to wear shoes for the first time so naturally the first time I wore them was on into work (a train ride and a 15-20 minute walk to my office) and even wore them on a walk during lunch, and guess what!! Not one blister, not one achey toe. NOTHING. Praise. Even though I typically go a half size up when I wear anything with a pointed toe, I did stay my regular size in these. I found the larger size had a little *too* much room around the side of my foot!
