Boyfriends and Flatforms

Happy late July 4th everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend -- despite the hurricane...
I am a recent convert to the boyfriend jean trend, and boy, I am in love. It might be difficult to picture yourself in jeans that sag around your waist, and don't exactly flatter your behind, but with the right cut and color, they add a great casual flair to an outfit.


I styled these jeans from American Eagle Outfitters with a pair of black flatform wedges. The wedges have wide straps and a chunky bottom - they are super comfortable and have a retro quality to them. Flatforms are great shoes for those who aren't yet comfortable with wearing heels casually. This pair has a cushioned insole which makes it feel like I'm walking on a cloud.


On top, I just put on a basic cream tank top which adds some femininity to the look. This balances out the boyish bottom half of my body.



My new favorite sunglasses!!! They're matte black with subtle leopard spots, and have mirrored lenses. From American Eagle, they were only around $15! A steal, and they are light-weight and comfortable. I tend to prefer inexpensive sunglasses as I don't have to worry about losing or breaking them, especially when I wear them everyday.


If you look closely, you can kind of see my little brother in my lenses...

Thanks for reading my loves! I really appreciate all your comments and I try to respond to all of them. Have a wonderful week <3
