A lot of people look at Eileen Fisher as a brand that caters to women in their mid to late thirties and up. And sure, my mom is a big fan, and the majority of her closet is filled with Eileen Fisher, but you know, I’ve always really liked a lot of the sweaters, tops, and dresses, too. The only thing that really keeps me away from shopping there on my own are the prices. So when a family friend offered me this black number, I couldn’t say no. Because it’s such a simple piece, it really gave me the freedom to style it in a way that felt more in line with my style. How did I make it more in line with my style you ask? By tying a jean jacket around my waist and adding a pair of mules (which are the dreamiest shoes).
When it comes to weather, I’m more of an overcast, rainy, snuggle-on-the-couch sorta girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love sunny weather too, but not when it’s unbearably hot, like its been the last few days. The only positive to LA’s heatwave? I finally got to whip out my favorite item in my closet: Shortalls! Are you sick of them yet? I know I wear them quite a bit on here, but I feel like there are so many ways to style them, that every look feels different from the last. Plus, I don’t think I’ve worn them with wedges before, so…there’s that!

I’ve always loved the look of vintage jeans (on other people at least) but was never able to find a pair that fit me well. Until these gems. They’re the perfect length, have a great high waist, are baggy in the right places and hug in all the right spots. They’re the type of jeans that I could wear really casually (like I did here) or I could throw on a pair of heels and head out to dinner.
