    fall fashion style blog in seattle

    Outfit Details: Pants: GAP (on sale!) | Linen tee: J.Crew | Blazer: Target, old (similar) | Necklace: Madewell | Chelsea Boots: ASOS 

    Here on the good ol’ West Coast – the corporate world is very business-casual. In fact, here in Seattle, we’ve gone beyond biz-caz to tech-casual, which basically means as long as your wearing pants and a clean(ish) shirt, you’re good. Sometimes though, it’s nice to put on a blazer and some black pants. It feels professional. And comfortable – especially when my pants feel like PJs, my t-shirt is linen and my blazer is soft and relaxed.

    I present to you: the most comfortable work outfit ever, complete with slouchy tee, track pants, flat chelsea boots and a Starbucks Red Cup. Now get out there, throw on some PJs and make shit happen.

  • My Boyfriends

    Outfit Details: Boyfriend Jeans (bought 1 size too big for extra slouch) via GAP (also obsessed with this pair)| Striped linen tank via GAP | Necklace via J.Crew | Flat leather sandals via GAP (out of stock but loving these) | Lip & cheek color via YSL

    Boyfriend Jeans. They are SO HOT right now. Have you shied away from sportin’ a pair due to fear of looking like Martha Stewart on a Saturday? I get it. I had that same fear, but I was able to overcome it – by figuring out how to style them in the “cool girl” way instead of the “hipster or mom?” way.

    Fear the Oprah pant no more. This trend is certified cool-girl and everyone can rock it. Here are my styling tips for how to wear those mom boyfriend jeans:

    • Slouchy Fit: Make sure your boyfriend jeans have a relaxed, slouchy fit. However – ensure that you do NOT have a slouchy camel toe. No CTs ladies.
    • Sloppy Roll: Roll up your boyfriend jeans like you don’t even care. Sloppy rolls. That easy, it’s-whatever roll-up.
    • No Sacks Please: Make sure your shirt isn’t TOO oversized. Relaxed fit is always good – but if you have a giant, billowing top with slouchy jeans, you will just look like a sack. Unless you’re Cara Delevingne. But you’re not. So find a relaxed but fitted top.
    • Tuck ‘er In: Tuck your top in. A little or a lot, you decide.
    • Girl Up: Pair with something girly. This could be a bright lipstick, a fun necklace, etc. You have to balance out the BF-vibe with some BFF-vibes.
    • Belt Optional: A belt can help your slouchy jeans stay in place (like mine, which are 1-2 sizes too big for my waist), and also can add an additional cool-girl effect.

    There you have it. Go find some awesome, ripped, ragged boyfriend jeans and pony up to this trend.

  • Ankle Cleavage For All

    seattle fashion blogger leopard print shoes 1

    The phrase “ankle cleavage” sort of grosses me out – I imagine loose skin folding over around your ankle, creating LITERAL cleavage on your ankle. But…that’s not what it means. Ankle cleavage has been dominating the fashion world as we move into Spring…and I’m really into a lil’ ankle cleave.

    If you have ever walked into a J.Crew store, you’ll notice that all the employees look polished – and even look as if they are coordinating their outfits, middle school style. Well, all J.Crew employees have to follow [pretty strict] dress guidelines – one of which is to show ankle cleavage when wearing pants – man or woman. THANKS JENNA LYONS. No, but really…thanks Jenna Lyons. Ankle cleave is HOT HOT HOT.

    …plus, if you are tall like me (5’10”), lots of pants just show ankle cleavage by default! So it’s not that these pants are a little to short for me…it’s that I’m rocking the newest, sexiest trends. Watch out boys…ankle cleave comin’ through.
