    What to Wear With Mom Jeans

    TOP: H&M  (similar)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SHOES: Abound (Nordstrom Rack)  |  BAG: H&M  |  NECKLACE: Gift           I have been a longtime fan of mom jeans.  I feel like the trend kind of started out with boyfriend jeans.  They were much baggier, often had lots of rips, and lower waistline.  I didn’t really like those, not going to lie.  Once the trend migrated to mom jeans, I hopped onboard.  The waistline of mom jeans is higher and they are a bit more narrow.  I really love them now.  I own 4 pairs and they are normally the only style of jeans I wear.  I do…

    Tie Dye by the Water

    TOP: Target  |  JEANS: Asos  |  BAG: Ted Baker London  |  SCRUNCHIE: Anthropologie (similar)  |  BELT: Thrifted (similar)           I feel like I am stuck in a styling rut.  I think I wear mom jeans too often.  I wear one of my three pairs most days of the week.  They just make a lot of my outfits look the same.  Of course I like how they look, I just get in the habit of wearing jean and shirt combos.  I guess it doesn’t help that it’s been pretty chilly.  It’s too cold to wear skirts or dresses.  Also, it feels weird wearing tights in a warm climate.  If you…

    Victoria Beach in Floral

    TOP: Target  |  JEANS: Asos  |  BELT: vintage  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society  |  SANDALS: H&M  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx           This past week one of my sisters visited me in California.  We did some fun things, including going to one of my favorite beaches.  This beach is Victoria Beach, in Laguna.  It’s so pretty and has this old “pirate tower”.  We also did a whale watching boat tour, where we saw hundreds of dolphins.  I have a video on my Instagram page!  It was incredible.  I plan on going again in a few months when it is more into whale season.  The weather was really nice that day so…

    White Cotton Blouse for Fall

    TOP: Topshop  |  JEANS: Asos  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society |  SNEAKERS: Target           This outfit combo came together last minute after I finally got my Topshop order in the mail.  I bought a bunch of clothing from Topshop for my birthday and it took two weeks to come in.  I have never had a clothing order take that long to ship? Anyway, I got this top and I think it is beautiful.  It has some floral embroidery and lace paneling.  I also got this backpack for my birthday.  It’s from my fiancĂ©.  I needed a new backpack to hold my camera when I go out for the…

    The Flower Fields

    TOP: Target  |  CARDIGAN: H&M  |  JEANS: Asos  |  PURSE: Kelly & Katie  |  SHOES: Massini  |  SUNGLASSES: Marshall’s  |  NECKLACE: Rocksbox  (code:fancyfashioncastlexoxo)           Happy spring! Since it’s officially spring, I wanted to find a flower field.  I found out about this place “The Flower Fields” from Jaci’s Instagram page: @jacimariesmith.  It’s near San Diego.  The day before Easter my fiancĂ© and I went on a day trip to San Diego to visit this place and La Jolla Cove.  It was a really perfect day.  I wore this top that I got for Christmas.  It’s layered velvet and the color is beautiful.  It’s from Target.  I am…

    New Outfit & New Home

    TOP: H&M  |  JEANS: Asos  |  BOOTS: Primark  |  PURSE: Lulu’s  |  SUNGLASSES:  Marshall’s            I wanted to do a post for Valentine’s Day today but the outfit I wanted to wear needs to be altered.  I decided to post about this outfit instead.  I got the top for Christmas from H&M.  I love it because it’s like a basic striped shirt but then it has the shoulder ruffle.  I am always attracted to black and white stripes and probably have too many striped tops.  They are just so easy to wear.             I am shooting in a new location.  I…

    Floral Embroidered Mom Jeans

    SWEATER: H&M  |  JEANS: Zaful |  SHOES: Sperry  |  PURSE: Expressions NYC           It took me a little while to get into the mom jean trend but now I love them.  What I like about them is that they aren’t as baggy as boyfriend jeans, and that they have a high waist.  These are especially cool because of the floral embroidery.  The only thing is that they are a little baggy around the ankles, so I might alter them.  I am also considering cutting them where they are cuffed and leaving a raw hem.  Let me know what you think.

    Styling Mom Jeans

    JEANS: ASOS | TOP: Halogen (Nordstrom) | SHOES: Wanted | SUNGLASSES: ASOS  | PURSE: Kelsey Dagger Brooklyn | TASSEL KEYCHAIN: T.J. Maxx            Happy Tuesday! I have been obsessed with these mom jeans from ASOS.  I got them a couple of months ago and they are so perfect.  I love how they are casual but feel cooler than skinny jeans.  I paired them with this new embroidered top.  I think the two look really good together.  Normally, I will wear these jeans with a top that is more cropped or tuck part of my shirt in.  The waist is high-wasted, so it can look a little bulky if you…
