They are SO practical, totally neutral and super flattering. We broke up recently, and I have to tell you, it’s been AMAZING.

Lately, I’ve been mixing up my style: light wash denim, bleached jeans, and even some acid wash chambray. In particular, I am loving these distressed slightly bleached jeans from One Teaspoon. I sized down on these {wearing size 25, usually 26}, and they are the perfect fit. My other favorites are a super super skinny rag & bone pair. I got both via Poshmark, naturally.

So tell me, are you guys into rocking the bleached jeans look? What do you pair it with to avoid looking like a blast from the past?

Head to toe: Karen Walker Perfect Day Sunglasses, Isabel Marant pour H&M top via Poshmark, Naja lingerie, Rampage blazer via Macys {crazy super old}, kate spade “creme de la creme” bangle, Gorjana Mila Cuff {c/o}, One Teaspoon Awesome Baggies {bleached jeans} via Poshmark, Alexander Wang Devere Bag, Zara open toe booties via Poshmark, Essie’s Tart Deco nail polish

I recently read an article that claimed women over 30 should not wear leggings. IMO, there’s a time and a place for everything; I definitely think leggings can be done and be done right. Even if you’re over 30 {Oh, the horror!}

I’m not saying I wear them out for a night on the town, or even to the movies. But I DO definitely wear them around as casual weekend wear, futzing around the house, dashing to the grocery store, lounging around and cooking dinner on a Sunday night.

What do you guys think? Are leggings part of your arsenal?

Relatedly, the Teeki Leggings featured in this post are like my new favorite thing. Just bought my second pair and couldn’t be happier. Here’s why:

  1. Hello, Fashion + function
  2. All Teeki Leggings are made from recycled plastic bottles, making them eco-friendly.
  3. They are remarkably lightweight. I swear it’s almost like wearing a second skin.
  4. Big on comfort. I love how comfortable they are, no weird riding, sagging or pulling.
  5. The Teekigram instagram account is wicked fun

Watch for a how-to post for leggings coming later this week!

So then there was that one time I got a spray tan for Vegas — my entire body broke out in an eczema flare so bad I needed a 2 week course of an oral steroid to suppress it. Since then, I’ve been staying as covered up as possible and moisturizing like a fiend. Good. […]

While I was Not-Blogging

19 June 2014

So it turns out that while I’ve been not-blogging, I’ve had this post WITH edited images sitting in my drafts for over a month. Cool. So here’s something I wore one time. Like a month ago, hopefully it’s still relevant for you. Honestly though, sometimes you just need to 1. unplug and 2. go for […]
