back to basics



I feel like these photos look like fall with the olive bag, red wall, and pants. But I haven't given up summer. I've just been focusing on finding really good jeans lately because I've been in desperate need of well fitting denim and I finally found some! 

I can't remember the last time I bought jeans. I know which jeans I bought, but I don't remember when and while I still wear those jeans, I've never loved them. They're well made and I would recommend them because they hold up well and still look like new. However, they just don't fit me well. Finding denim that's made for you as an individual is hard. 

I prefer mine to not have a ton of stretch, the more they slide down the less comfortable they become for me. The higher the cotton percentage with just a small amount of elastane allows for just a hint of stretch. Or 100% cotton where there isn't much stretch at all. Perfect.

Here's  an article about how denim's constructed if you want more information! ]

I found these jeans at Nordstrom Rack a couple of weekends ago and I've been loving them! They are so comfortable, have a tiny bit of stretch, but don't fall down! They're 98% cotton and 2% elastane. They're ankle length with a simple raw hem. I wanted something interesting, yet subtle.

The tee I'm wearing is marked down for $5.99 and I'm obessed with it. It's a great basic with a little extra, I love having tops like this in my closet! They're the easiest to accessorize with your favorite shoes or a fun bag. Or both, like I did here.





see you wednesday!
