It’s STILL NYFW and I’m STILL not there. But I had so much fun dressing up in fashion week worthy looks. But sometimes, keeping comfy is significantly more important, which is what I was going for with this look.

I’ve fallen in love with boyfriend jeans. It took me forever to jump on that trend but now I’m so glad I did. These are super easy to dress up with some nice heels and a blazer or down with a chambray like this.

Sunday evenings are always a fun night to go out to eat for me. Not a lot of people are out, restaurants are usually slightly empty, and it’s a great way to regroup and relax before the start of a new week.

The tradition harkens back to my childhood a little. Every Sunday night, my grandparents, parents, and me would go out to dinner. We had a list of old favorites and occasionally went to try new places. It let us catch up with each other, stay involved in each other’s lives, and really bond. While it doesn’t happen every weekend anymore and it hasn’t been that group in years, I still get a glorious blast of nostalgia when I’m eating out on a Sunday night.

This top is one of my favorite finds of the summer. “Closets are for shoes, not lesbians.” It’s super duper soft, has a really unique open back, and offers a statement I stand very strongly by. I just love it! It’s by vfish designs, who I found at Andersonville’s Midsommar Fest in June.

Zoe particularly enjoys going out to eat with us and we’re always searching for places with dog friendly outdoor seating. The phone call “Can I bring my dog to your patio?” is a frequent one in our household.

The Perfect Distressed Denim #skinny_trf

I feel like from the moment you begin blogging, you’re almost required to own a pair of perfectly distressed denim. Whether boyfriend fit or skinny, a pair needs to find its way into your closet at some point. After blogging for 9+ months, I have finally found said perfect pair of jeans at Zara.

It was literally love at first sight. I turned around, saw them sitting there on the rack, and all but screamed with joy. First pair I grabbed was in my size and it was off to the fitting room for me. Absolutely perfectly fitting.

Come home, beautiful.

Absolutely wonderful! They’re comfy, they work with casual outfits but can just as easily be dressed up with a pair of heels and the right top. These have very quickly become the most versatile piece in my closet.

Now if only I could wear them to work.

Added bonus for the post, stacking rings!

I have this problem where my ring size is super small. Like, my engagement ring is a 4.5. I just have suuuper tiny fingers. So stacking and midi rings that should fit higher up on my fingers just don’t. But I’m okay with that. I like having the stacks where they are.

I know some of them look really tight in the photos. Let me tell you how toasty warm it was the day we shot these. My fingers were pretty gross all day.

Anyway, back to jeans.

I cannot contain my excitement with these. I’ve been wearing them literally every chance I get.

Going out for dinner? Jeans. Going shopping? Jeans. Dinner with friends? Jeans. I’m in love!
