Mom Jeans

My name is Emily and I'm addicted to mom jeans. This newly discovered addiction happened when I decided to buy an updated version of my favorite pair of ASOS jeans (black high waisted with ripped knees), but in a lighter wash and wayyy higher rise. It's so funny that the once heinous trend of the 80's and 90's that our moms wore to showcase their butts in the most unflattering of ways (visions of pancakes evoked here) has now become super sexy and modern for the ladies of today. Is it just that our butts are more perky these days (thank you, squats), or are the jeans themselves just cut in a more curve-friendly way? I don't know, but I'm into it. I don't think there was a single day last week that I didn't wear these bad boys, and with this look I decided to go for a casual-yet-not-so-casual day to night feel. I cannot recommend investing in this style enough - trust me, your bum will thank you.

Camel Blazer

This look is pretty different for me. It's sort of.. I want to say.. preppy? In a weird way? I don't know, something about the nautical stripes paired with the camel makes it feel super classic and traditional to me (which totally isn't my usual look, but I'm digging it). I guess you can't always live in skin tight black outfits, right? 

I'm also giving this keychain pom pom thing a try. Love that this one is kind of edgy - black with silver hardware makes it feel not so girly to me.  I rarely go for tailored pieces like this blazer but as I get older I'm starting to understand the importance of investing in staples. When you get in a weird style mood and want to change it up, you can on a whim. Voila!

Playing With Proportions

Quick and easy outfit. I loved pairing these two asymmetrical pieces together. The thigh-high slit on the skirt kept things balanced and a touch more flattering. I'm not one for bright colors (obviously), so to add a pop to the look I went with my trusty CV clutch. It's just the right amount of print to keep things interesting. Since the proportions were pretty long and heavy, I went with a high bun to give my upper half some space. Easy peezy.

Keep It Simple

(Top: Nordstrom | Pants: ASOS | Heels: similar | Shades: ZeroUV | Jewelry: Luv AJ)

Since I work from home, I tend to overdress to simple occasions like lunch with friends or a casual meeting. On most days you can find me in my favorite ripped knee jeans and Nike's, so I really take advantage of any reason at all to dress up. I love this outfit because it's almost mindblowingly simple - just a crop top, high waisted pants and pumps. But somehow it feels dressy and sophisticated (but still sexy, duh). I'd even wear this look to date night - sometimes it's fun to leave something to the imagination, ladies.

Chic Sexy Neutrals

Lately I've been dreaming of a wardrobe full of basics, nothing but knits knits knits and muted color palettes. My daily uniform basically consists of different versions of this look - tight on the bottom and oversized on top, paired with a killer shoe to dress it up and to flatter my short legs. High waisted jeans always make me feel a bit sexy and certainly flatter a lady's bum. Oversized boyfriend-y type sweaters are always so sexy to me too, even though they're not skin tight. I think it's the effortless, I-just-threw-this on vibe. I've never been much for prints but I do love how this mini bucket bag adds a subtle pop - this one was designed by my lovely friend Erin, and comes in a plethora of yummy hues.

A Little Leg

(Dress: Tobi | Jacket: Zara, similar here | Booties: Forever 21, similar here)

A little thigh high slit never hurt anyone, especially when it comes to this little grey ribbed number that I wore from daytime to drinks last week. It goes perfectly with an oversized denim jacket and neutral booties for a look that doesn't turn (too many) heads, but can also look pretty badass with a cropped moto and heels for some bday drinks at the Viceroy. Topped it off with 6 inches less of hair and a fresh color - loving the mom hair vibes these days.
