Fashion? That’s a tricky subject for me. I’m one of those girls that doesn’t even know the brand of my favorite pair of jeans (I know, who does that!).I may not be able to recognize your new Kanye West shirt, but there is something I can tell you and it’s a secret that the women in my family have passed down from generation to generation, so listen up! (Read up?)
You can get by with one rule alone: find items that highlight your best features, disguise what makes you uncomfortable, and create the features that you wish you had! *high fives self*
That’s right girls, that’s all you need to know! That rule will get you through every fashion trend, every season, and will carry you through to old-fashonista-age.
My wardrobe staples typically include: a solid pair of jeans that I always feel great in, a pair of boots that take me to next level fierce, and a fun scarf… well, that’s just because I’m always cold - and scarves prove that fashion can be functional, too.

Every girl out there knows that finding the perfect pair of jeans is akin to finding the Holy Grail. You look amazing in them, they highlight all your best features, and if you’re lucky, you can still breath in them when you button them up, amiright! Until they start making designer yoga/pajama pants (Karl Lagerfeld, I’m lookin’ at you), you gotta find something stylish, yet comfortable, to leave the house in. With that goal in mind, jeans are my #1 go-to. Hold it in, pull it back, push it up - the right pair of jeans will do all of this! Plastic surgery pants? Maybe. But the truth is that the perfect pair of jeans are basically like having a good diet & exercise weaved right into denim, then strategically placed on your body. They do all the hard work so that you don’t have to.
Almost equal to my #denimlove is a fierce pair of boots. There isn’t much that can’t be accomplished with an above the knee, flat boot, and that’s real talk! They’re casual, they’re flirty, and girls - they really do go with everything!
There isn’t a skirt, pair of pants, or dress that you can’t work with the right pair of boots. If there’s one thing I adore, it’s making things easy on myself in the morning.
When you combine boots with jeans, clothes-magic happens (yes, that’s a thing). They pull an entire outfit together and you look like you put a lot more effort into getting ready than you actually did.You can’t beat that. Now just slap on a scarf and you're good to go. Bam! Fall outfit in 3 easy steps!
The only thing left is my #1 accessory that all of you girls already have… a stunning smile. *awww*
Jeans. Boots. Scarf… conquer!
