Mosaic

The Minxies are loving unexpected layering pieces this season- like these Neuw Denim Overalls. Gone are the days of only associating overalls with memories of romping around in the garden as children or painting your kitchen walls the perfect shade of salmon. Here we have paired these dark-wash overalls with a simple white long sleeve and black ankle booties from Frye. What really ties the entire look together is this Tracy Reese Overcoat, adding interest and warmth without completely over-shadowing the understated foundation. And can we take a minute to completely process how beautiful this Matt + Nat Crossbody bag is?! For those who have never crossed paths with this glorious brand- all of their pieces are made from 100% recycled materials. This vegan line puts an entirely new spin on what it means to be ethical and, still, incredibly fashionable and timeless. Sometimes it pays off to stick your nose out and see if there are any new spins on well-loved classics like overalls and leather accessories. You may just be surprised!

From the Archives: Relax Into Boyfriend Jeans

We’ve pulled one of our favorite summer posts from the archives because a look this good deserves a second chance! Check out “Relax Into Boyfriend Jeans” from August 2014 below:

boyfriend_jean North Carolina’s summer spell is upon us. 

The past few days have been the hottest yet and we find ourselves desiring  our easiest outfits. As the temperature rises, comfort takes top spot on our priority list. Try pulling on skinny jeans in the late August heat, and you’ll agree, something more relaxed is calling your name.

So, we’re welcoming back our favorite boyfriend jeans from Level 99. The perfect (and oh so comfortable) alternative to your go-to skinnies. 

Level 99 Boyfriend JeansBoasting a vibe as relaxed as their fit, these boyfriend jeans are comfortable enough for the hottest days and cool enough for night. 

We like to offset the masculine feel of the denim with a pair of killer heels, like these Playtime Slingbacks from Seychelles. Pairing fancy footwear with casual jeans is an excellent and unexpected way to work dressier shoes into your day-to-day look.

boyfriend_jean-3Going for something more effortless? Try pairing them with one of our favorite recurring trends- a luxe sweatshirt top. Easy to style and comfortable to wear, this top from RD Style is just the thing to keep you feeling good from sunup to sundown.

boyfriend_jean-4There are still long summer days ahead, so dress to enjoy them. Stop traffic. Take that detour. With your trusty boyfriend jeans you’ll be ready for whatever awaits!
