Denim Talk

Since I’m a lover of all things basic, denim is definitely my “go-to” wardrobe piece when I’m deciding what to wear in the morning. Denim, whether it’s light blue, dark blue, black, white, grey…goes with everything in my closet (and super easy to style…I love it)! Just throw on a white tee and you’re good to go.

A girl can never have too many pairs of jeans! Or anything denim for that matter. To me, this is because all jeans and denim pieces are unique…from the way they fit to what shade they are (and how many rips they have). In my mind, having a wide variety of denim is always a good idea! But that being said, something that is so simple to style is sometimes so difficult to find.

I’m going to share with you three of my favorite denim brands. Even though these brands are completely different, all of their denim fit me so well and allow me to create those neutral outfits that I’m oh so crazy about 😉


First up…AYR denim.

I absolutely adore these black jeans because not only are they super comfortable, but they make me feel like everything is being “held in tight”….if you know what I mean. Don’t you just hate it when you have to constantly pull up your pants? These babies fit like a glove and still allow me to eat something without having to unbutton!

This brand is a little more expensive, but totally worth the investment. Great quality!!


Next we have my favorite brand of all time…Zara denim!

One thing that I adore about Zara denim is that you have such a wide variety of styles to choose from. Whether it be solid dark blue or light grey, skinny or boyfriend, solid or distressed…Zara offers the whole range! I find that Zara denim is pretty comfortable, but not as tight as AYR. So yes, sometimes I have to pull up my pants throughout the day as they loosen up (since I don’t do belts).

Zara denim is also very affordable…


Last (but not least) is DSTLD denim.

This brand is all about giving you luxury denim pieces without the big retailer mark up — which is pretty sweet if you ask me. I have a lot of pairs from DSTLD and they are definitely on high rotation in my closet. My favorite pair are these dark navy cigarette leg beauties.


What are some of your favorite denim brands? Let me know babes!


Wishful Wednesday: Luxe Lip Balm

I don’t know about you babes, but my lips get so incredibly chapped during the winter months, it’s gross. Like straight ew.

I’ve recently started using this luxe lip balm from PARADIS. The flavor is watermelon…which makes me day dream of tropical beaches, sandy toes & fruity cocktails. What I adore about this lip balm is that it literally feels like silk when you put it on your lips & it stays on for quite a while! Don’t you hate those lip balms that dry up your lips even more? Like WHAT?!

Also, it’s awesome how this lip balm doesn’t have a color — it’s more of a clear gloss which I love wearing just by itself. I only need to apply a thin layer, not much is needed at all!

This lip balm comes in a few different flavors & I’m dying to try them all out! I think my next one will be Tahitian Vanilla – yummy!

P.S. how chic is the copper tube? So minimal & fresh…I’m obsessed!



Denim Dress

Denim is on fire right now. From distressed rips to wide flares, this classic fabric has been seen everywhere this year — and I love it! From the runways to the streets, denim will always be an essential wardrobe piece.

Even though the weather is finally cooling down out here in California, I still find moments during the day when the sun is shining and remnants of summer flow through the breeze. In these instants, my mind automatically gravitates toward dresses, skirts and cut-off shorts.

This denim dress (shop similar styles here) is one of my favorite basic go-to’s. I love how simple and comfortable it is! It literally feels like I’m wearing pajamas since the denim is so soft. What do you babes think?
