Trying on mom jeans for the first time | moddie blog

Trying out mom jeans for the first time

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!

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!

Summer Outfit For Being Poolside In Houston

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!

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.

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?

summer hat + jumpsuit | moddie blog

Tis’ the season for a summer hat + jumpsuit

GUYS, I bought a vintage, summer hat the other weekend and ever since I’ve been dreaming about how to wear it. How many outfits can I get away with wearing it with? Denim? Linen? Silk? Anything seems possible with a straw hat (now that I mentioned silk – that sounds AMAZING). I’m so thrilled. It’s throwing me back to ACL days where I borrowed a straw hat from my friend Brenda and let her pin it into my thick hair, trusting her to make me look like a pixie dream girl. Well, straw hat, I’m back.

I got this particular baby from Merch and Market, the coolest little place off Westheimer near Montrose. I took a selfie in it (of course) and then plucked up the courage to ask how much it was, even though I was pretty sure it was $100+! Turned out it was only $35, so I took that as a sign that it belonged on my hat wall. I put it on while wearing my yellow rainboots and BAM — a match made in heaven.

  I bought this jumpsuit at Emerson Rose literally yesterday (eeee!) and am SO happy I did. It’s so comfy and light — perfect for Houston summer. Also, not very expensive! I’m going to wear it every day with different shoes (and my summer hat) and not give AF about anything else. That’s my fav kinda fashion. Are we into it? Lemme know. 😉

Happy Friday, all! If you’re interested — check out my Houston weekend guide, and get busy this weekend! Getting out and doing fun things in town is my FAV and I want you all to join! So get in on the action and click HERE, and have all the fun this weekend! Also, get a summer hat. I promise you’ll love it.
