wear.

simmer down. 
after the hottest july since 1955 (for real. i can't make that stuff up), it has finally cooled down a bit. it was even cool enough to wear jeans the other night. it had been weeks since i wore a pair of jeans. (okay, except for these. but i'm not sure they count.) in fact, the last time i wore jeans was july 1st, canada day! and...it was stinkin' hot.

welcome back, denim. i've missed you.


 




floral tank: aerie, $9
bra top: gap body, $12
*jeans: adriano goldschmied, $90
flip flops: j.crew, $10
bracelets: misc. (f21, j.crew, garage sale, boutique)


*here's an instance where i paid more for something of better quality. this brand of jeans generally retails for around $200. though i can't won't justify spending that much, when i saw them on the clearance rack i snatched them up. i've had them for well over a year and have maybe washed them once. they hold their shape perfectly, never get stretched out. and, though these pictures don't show the color accurately, they're the perfect, broken-in, faded shade of denim. these jeans alone were one of my greatest motivators to lose the weight i put on last year. it was a happy day when they fit again! also, i'm more likely to spend more on my jeans because (as you may have noticed) i wear jeans a lot. i live in jeans in the fall/winter/spring seasons so it's worth it to me to have nice ones. (though, i think the gap has great mid-priced jeans, too.)

  1. I have a pair of AG jeans that my mom gifted me 3-4 years ago before I really could afford investment pieces... and you are so right that quality is worth it, from the fit to the not stretching out to the lasting for years. Love them. No more Old Navy jeans for me :)

  2. Cute outfit! Love your hair! We're kinda similar in the hair dept, hee hee. I love high end denim, so great when you can snatch it up on sale. It's the best way to shop. Isn't it tough having a closet full of clothes that you can't fit into? I still have a few pairs of jeans are a bit of a squeeze. Boo.

  4. In some cases, the HCG bodyweight reduction program goes on for a longer duration, for instance, 40 days, if
    the patient is unable to reduction a substantial amount of weight in the initial 26-day period.
    HCG is readily available in drop form so why not get yours today
    and begin to develop a healthier lifestyle. Most fruit holds it seeds on the inside
    beneath a water insoluble skin and inner filling.
    In this case, they are asking the body to act like it has released natural HCG into their body.
    ) It is really good if you keep a food diary of just what you eat and how you are feeling.
    In look at of excessive weight loss, I presume that it is best to have attempted a massive selection of times,
    are you currently even now baffled about its unsatisfactory results.
    I don’t have an extensive educated background,
    but I’m not an idiot either and I don’t think
    that I would be crazy in saying - neither are you. The expectation should be to at least maintain control of the blood glucose levels if not to improve and perhaps
    reverse the symptoms of diabetes altogether. This regimen continues
    until you have achieved your preferred weight. You can actually lose
    weight by following our diet program.
