J.Crew has done it again; they have redesigned their jeans to perfection. They have not only added stretch to the toothpick jeans, they have also added new styles and washes throughout their collection.

It’s no secret I am a J.Crew lover. I have owned a few different pair of their jeans in the past but mostly boyfriend type jeans. J.Crew skinny’s are now on a whole new level, from distressed to black to my personal favorite the parker wash.

The lime eyelet tank is also a J.Crew sale rack find. When trying on and buying blouses from J.Crew make sure you always try them on and don’t be afraid to try down a size. Boxy is the trend but can make you look bigger than you are. I can go down up to 2 sizes in J.Crew tops just to eliminate the extra fabric around the mid section.

Vests make everything better, and army green is my new neutral. A plain outfit can be taken to a whole new level of style just by adding a vest. In the winter it usually has fur, but even in the summer army green and denim dominate the vest world. A vest is a great way to add an edge to your look. They come in many styles, colors and structures, still looking good with a tee. Denim vests pair great with all of the great colored pants of summer; you just have to be careful about putting it with the same colored denim. Army green always looks great with denim and black pants of any kind and mixes great with multi-colored tops!

Happy Labor Day!

I was recently sent the best blogging gift EVER! Thanks to my sister Kelli, I will now be photographing my own blog entries with my Shoot remote control. This remote syncs with your camera and allows you to set up your camera, hit the button and take the shot. It has changed my life and now I don’t always have to call upon my friends to take my photo.

This outfit is all about textured accents. These crisscross reptile sandals are from Shi by Journey’s. They are throughly adorned in studs, brads and jewels which complement each other perfectly. My Foreign Exchange tank has a raised embroidered design for some visual interest and I chose all types of bangles including: fur, jeweled, raised and flat. They all have a common thread of metallic and black so that they can harmonize excellently together in the same outfit.

What textures do you like to mix?
