In the past year or so of my life (at the old age of 27), I’ve become a very adventurous jeans-wearer. It started last year with cropped, flare jeans then I went back to low-waisted jeans after swearing off them years ago, and NOW I am wearing mom jeans. Never thought I’d see the day where my hips would fit into mom jeans & I’d actually be into it. Alas, here we are. Not a mom, yet rockin’ the look.
I saw Tanya Burr, one of the cutest UK ladies around, wearing mom jeans & i thought dang, those look good. So I finally decided to stop by Topshop this week and try some on for size. Obvs I liked em’ cause they’re at home with me now. Also top tip — try on everything you can at TopShop and you’ll be surprised at how much fits! I tried on stuff I generally would never wear and was pleasantly surprised. That being said, I was frugal with my choices, but if I had a party go to (or tons of money to spend) I may have gone home with other things!
Okay back to mom jeans. These ones areeee from Topshop and they’re surprisingly comfortable and soft. They hug the butt nicely, but also I don’t really have one & they accentuate that a bit. Oh well. I’m not in this for people to stare at what could’ve been. Am I right? I just want to buy what I like and right now i like the high-waist 80s cowboy/mom look. For some reason (prob the light wash) these remind me of my grandpa who was a true texas cowboy to the core.
What jeans are you into these days? Keep me fresh & young and tell me in the comments below. Seriously, I need help. Also check me out on instagram — I’m now using #liketoknowit so you can shop my photos!
I’ve had Warby Parker Glasses for going on five years now (maybe longer) and somehow I’m only just now on my third pair. That means I went wayyyy too long without getting a new prescription. But times have changed! My third pair of Warby Parkers came in the mail this past weekend. Short story: I love them.
If you don’t know anything about Warby Parker… where have you been? Only slightly kidding. Warby Parker is a glasses store that basically brought affordable designer eyewear to the table, while also working with nonprofits to provide a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair of glasses sold! So if you buy a pair, someone else gets one! Awesome company. Other cool things to note:
- They are opening a store in Heights Mercantile (a brand new shopping mecca in the heights)!
- They have started doing eye exams in some of their stores – which is awesome for people like me who are too lazy to take multiple steps in getting glasses.
- They do a free home try-on for those of you who don’t have a local store!
My go-to frames for the past few years were the Percey style, which I honestly considered re-buying. They’re such a great shape! But I knew I wanted to try something a liiiittle different. These frames are the Begley in whiskey tortoise! Still very harry potter vibe, but a little bit more hexagonal. I’m into them, can you tell?
When I was in Austin last month, we stopped into the Warby Parker store and tried on probably a million pairs of glasses so that I knew what frames I would want. There are so many awesome pairs (like these, and these, and these) that I may start buying glasses more frequently.
You know, when I stop being a poor millennial kid.
Oh hellooooo, welcome to summer in Houston where it’s blusteringly hot & the summer storms roll through. When it’s not storming, it’s incredibly beautiful but too damn hot! Good thing we’ve got no shortage of white linen-y shirts to wear around while we sweat, right? That’s my go-to anyways. Been preppin’ for white linen night in the heights all summer and thank goodness I went over to the Nordstrom annual sale with my lil personal shopper, Sara, whose job was to find me the perf summer outfit!
Not only did Sara walk around holding all the clothes for me to try on, she also made me try on things I normally wouldn’t. And lo & behold who walked out of Nordstrom with two items that she would never have tried on if she was alone — me. Yo girl got her birthday, summer outfit AND a great light top for steamy Houston weather. The best part about this top is that it’s got elastic around the bottom so depending on how sweaty you’re getting you can continue to raise it up to catch that breeze. 😂 I love me a good crop top and this one def fits the bill.
Can’t forget my most fav jean shorts of the summer that I got from Anthropologie but are ALSO at Nordstrom now. They’re the perfect wash & fit like a glove. Can’t forget your most needed accessory — a nice, cold glass of ice water. I was sucking it down while taking photos cause ya know. Hot. What’s your go-to summer outfit?
