For The Love of Fashion (See Jane Wear)

My family has always joked, "where did you come from?"  Well, I assure you, I am on of them but they're referencing my love for fashion.  Sure, my mom and sisters like to shop but they've never been avid Vogue readers or willing to spend a month's rent on a bag (guilty).  I've been like this for as long as I can remember--and as long as they can remember, too.  When I was in 7th grade, bootcut jeans were the new thing.  I needed them.  I dreamt about them.  I knew life wouldn't be complete without the jeans that I saw all the cool highschoolers wearing.  I begged and pleaded for my mom and sisters to take me to the mall to get my first pair of bootcut jeans--tight in the butt with a perfect flare below the knee (my mom couldn't get over that these jeans were back in style and felt the late 60s were haunting her).  They took me to New York & Company and I'll never forget buying that first pair of jeans I so desperately needed.  It ignited my obsession for fashion and for that I have my mother, sisters, and New York & Company to thank.

In my opinion, the brand has done a great job of evolving with the times.  Their styles are current but they still carry the classics that appeal to people like my mom (see her picks below).  I'm loving this modern funnel-neck crop top and this floral sheath dress--check it out!

How To Wear A Boyfriend Shirt (See Jane Wear)

rag & bone/JEAN oxford (on sale! and shop boyfriend shirts HERE), BDG white jeans (only $79! and shop white distressed jeans HERE),
Aquazzura heels (shop red heels HERE), Clare V clutch (shop Clare V HERE)

When wearing a boyfriend shirt, I like to pair it with super skinny jeans or if I'm feeling adventurous, some boyfriend jeans on bottom.  I sass it up with a super feminine shoe and lip, just so I'm not completely androgynous and there we have it:a way to make menswear not so mannish.

Simple Jewels (See Jane Wear)

Old Navy dress, Kendra Scott necklace (c/o), Kendra Scott bracelet (c/o) + bangle stacks, Chloe heels, Clare V clutch
You might know by know that I'm a minimalist when it comes to jewelry--the same diamond studs, the same watch, day in and day out.  Kendra Scott is known for her dazzling, statement jewelry pieces (which, as a jewelry novice, can intimidate me) but I'm impressed by the summer 2016 line.  She has great, new pieces that are minimalistic perfection (in various metals) that are made for someone like me.  She still has the bold, fancy necklaces that go great with a party dress but I love the soft, simple metals that van virtually go with any look.  Be sure to check it out for yourself!
