If you were to look through my (rather extensive) collection of jeans, you’d mostly find designer denim, usually in a skinny fit, in various washes and rises. But nestled along side of the pricey pairs, there is a brand you’ll see repeatedly that has a much more accessible price tag. I’ve been wearing Old Navy jeans for years and years and years. The mid-rise Rockstar skinny jeans are my JAM. In fact, they’re the only white jeans I will wear. I have about 4 pairs! And then there is the pair that I wore all throughout this past fall, with a slightly distressed ankle hem and one single knee slit, that I ended up buying another pair of, you know, just in case.
I am so impressed with all of the new spring washes and styles of the Rockstar Skinny at Old Navy. You know I already have a pair of light grey jeans (last worn here), but I actually picked up a pair of grey skinnies during my last trip to Old Navy because they’re 100% more flattering on me than the designer pair I already had in my closet!
Old Navy denim is super soft and honestly, such great quality for the price point! They’ve actually been recently improving the technology of their jeans, too – like these new “Stay-White” jeans that actually repel stains & spills so they stay white, no matter how messy the day gets. Total game changer, I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair! There’s also the new “Sculpt” fabric that shapes your bottom half and creates a remarkably slimming fit. Designer-like technology and great fits for a really accessibly price… You can’t go wrong! In order to keep my jeans routine from feeling stale, I am always on the hunt for cool new ways to wear denim!
Nothing is more essential in your wardrobe than a good pair (or few) of jeans. I’ve always been a denim girl, but working from home has only increased my can’t-go-wrong-with-jeans philosophy. Jeans tend to be my go-to for almost any occasion – dressed up for a work meeting, my usual travel attire, running errands on the weekend, and even a night out on the town. I love dresses and skirts, but I have a really hard time finding pants that fit me properly so I tend to stick to some type of denim when the occasion doesn’t call for a fancier hemline. Just a little note about the Rockstar Skinny Jean – It’s available in a high-rise, a mid-rise, and a low-rise so you can find the fit that’s best for your body. But, like I said, I’m usually a mid-rise girl.
Jeans are the perfect foundational piece for incorporating your spring pieces into your wardrobe, even though it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet. February is always that month where I couldn’t be more over the cold, the grey skies, the snow, and the wind. It’s that point of the winter where getting dressed everyday starts to feel beyond monotonous. It sort of feels like “been there, worn that,” you know? February is usually when I long to update my wardrobe, but I refuse to buy anything that’s meant for cold temperatures. I’ve got my sights set on spring and there’s no turning around!
I just picked up this shirt and this sweater and I’ve been wearing the combination of the two non-stop. I bought each piece to wear individually this spring, but the layered look is much more seasonally appropriate for right now.
This boyfriend-style high-low hem shirt is going to get a whole lot of use this summer.. It’s the quintessential wear-with-white-jeans top that will give you that effortless, but put together look. (Just pair with your favorite sandals and a printed clutch or colored crossbody!) It’s just the right amount of gauzy without feeling transparent and the extra-long back makes it fun to layer. I can see myself wearing it as a bikini cover-up to the pool and beach this summer, too! It’s perfectly oversized and super lightweight… A must-have for warm spring days!
The kimono sleeves on this oversized, textured sweater make it so easy to layer shirts underneath, but it will definitely be a stand-out piece once the weather warms up, too. I can picture this sweater with denim cut-offs and boat shoes on a chilly beach day, and also layered on top of my printed floral-print dresses on cool spring mornings. I’d also love it with a pair of white jeans and leather sandals for an effortlessly chic look!
