Coffee Break

I’m a big fan of a good old boyfriend jean; baggy, not necessarily flattering, and rolled up just above the ankle. While it is a look worn by many of all shapes and sizes, I’m particularly in love with this look because I can strategically wear pants that are otherwise too short. As much  as I LOVE to shop tall, it’s not always possible, or the styles that I love just simply aren’t available in longer lengths, so it’s important to find ways to incorporate standard sizes into your wardrobe but still make them look like they were made for you!

While I’m a lover of all sorts of styles and looks, I’d say that 90% of the time, my personal style is much more along the lines of today’s look. A grungy chic look that says I’m just going to grab a coffee and run some errands and CHILL, even though I would most likely rock this look just about anywhere, on just about any occassion. This casual look is so much easier now too because the weather is finally starting to feel like Spring,  and I’m no longer being left with near frostbite on my ankles (a sensation that is all too common when pants are often not the right fit).
