As much as I’d like to pretend, I’ve never been that “jeans and t-shirt” kind of girl. Blame the fashion lover in me or blame the 1,000 degree Louisiana summers accompanied by school uniform falls and springs that I grew up with, but I just never fell into that cool girl category. Fast forward a few years (and a few states), and jeans are a pretty regular staple for me. Even in the summers in Southern California, the hottest of days will inevitably be followed by a chilly and sometimes windy night by the beach. It takes a few outfit changes a day. (Something Eric finds ridiculous, but he’s a boy. He doesn’t understand. “Get a jacket,” he says. A jacket doesn’t go with this outfit. But anyway…) I bought these chambray jeans a few years ago (a total steal at Marshall’s), and they’ve been a favorite ever since. They’re lightweight enough for warm days and easily pair with an oversized sweater for evenings. And recently, I totally broke my “cheap girl” rule and got one of those expensive tanks or tees that everyone talks about. (Mine above is Current/Elliott.) A luxury, yes, but ya’ll – I’m obsessed. It’s super soft and slightly sheer, but not annoyingly so, ya know? Maybe that’s me. Paired with my favorite jeans, I’m in love, and (whaaaat?!) I may just be that jeans and tee girl after all.
