Made Well

So here it is, the last post from California (for a while, anyways) as promised!

This was actually the first shoot I did in these jeans a while back. My initial styling of them of course carried a weighty 70’s vibe, as shown here.

Obviously a flare jean is a nod to the past, but I find that a super wide leg looks almost costume-y in this day and age. That’s why I love this subtle interpretation of the trend – the mini-boot on these jeans lets you experiment a little, but on a jean you can keep for a long time.

Summer Essentials

Shift dresses and platform sandals. After a long consultation with my summer inspirations, I have come to the definite conclusion that these are my two favorite summer trends, and I will be sporting them as often as I can. The beauty of slip or shift dresses lies within their simplicity. You could, for example, pair this dress with a pair of chucks and a jean jacket for an Americana, “girl next door,” type of look. Or, you could throw a leather jacket on with some minimalistic heels and you have a lovely outfit for the evening. The shift dress can be whatever you need it to be, and for this reason, I need it. The platform sandals are a little more indulgent – surprise surprise, they are not as versatile as one would think! But they’re so cool and add so much umph to an outfit instantly. xx
