Classic Jean Skirt

Jeans skirts have been around for a very long time! They have never really gone out of style. Just the way you wear them has changed. Right now a great look is pairing them with a collared shirt and cute heels. This outfit is a great example of how to pull the look off! The shoes here are from Charlotte Russe and share a striking resemblance to Christian Louboutin Jefferson Platform Sandals! But these are much, much, more affordable and just as cute.

The Skinny Jean

The Skinny Jean, everyone thought it would go away after being in style for a season. But they are still around and now it looks like they may be here to stay, at least, for a while! At first I was not a fan, but I have embraced them and now see they have potential when matched with adorable heels! And when you shop around, you can find the perfect pair that is flattering to your body!

Classic and Comfy

Look of the Day:
This outfit can go with many occasions. Work, dinner, weekend, etc. I think its great for summer because you can enjoy the warm weather in this cute lace cami, but keep warm when you decide to go inside and the AC is booming! Dressing in layers is very smart for summer because of the AC. You don't want to catch a summer cold! But you still want to break out those cute summer clothes. This outfit is also a great example of mixing your designer pieces with non-designer pieces. And how it all comes together in creating a fab look!
