“Those crazy nights, I do remember in my youth. I do recall, those were the best times, most of all, in the heat with a blue jean girl…” – Stone in Love : Journey
I think it is safe to say that the “blue jean girl” Journey is referring to is me. Okay, maybe not considering they are a way old band and I am certainly not as vintage as them. But I am definitely a blue jean girl and have some pretty memorable moments wearing denim. I was rocking dark wash True Religion skinny jeans (back when they were cool) when I first got kissed. I remember LOVING those jeans, the guy not so much… Anyways, below are some of my recent outfits, all including denim of course. Take a look!
On Wednesday I had to go into school for a meeting with my advisor & this is what I wore. My absolute favorite white blouse which has a twist in the front and long hem in the back. I love when classic pieces are changed up a bit, with an added special something to the design. This top is by Urban Outfitters and I bought it recently so if you love it, go buy it! My jeans are 7 for all Mankind. Since this outfit is pretty basic, I wore eye catching gold gladiator sandals by Sam Edelman. I bought these sandals last month at Nordstrom Rack for 50 percent off the normal retail price, what a steal! As for accessories, I stuck to my beachy basics which include a crochet bag, Rayban Aviators and breedazzled bracelets.
On Thursday I went to the Jersey Shore for the night with my mom and sister. I wore my “More Issues Than Vogue” Muscle tank (which was longer until I cut it). It was a gift from my bestie from Nordstrom, she clearly knows me too well. I paired it with cutoff shorts by One Teaspoon, a coin statement necklace from Urban Outfitters and breedazzled bracelets.
Saturday night I headed to Blu Alehouse, a super fun bar, with my besties for an end of summer bitches night out. I got to wear my new dress by Billabong which has the most adorable denim collared top. I paired it with lace up open toe sandals from Urban Outfitters, breedazzled bracelets & a braided headband which is super easy to do! Instructions below.
A better look at the print on the dress.
To make a braided headband out of your hair you will need 2 tiny clear elastic bands and a few bobby pins that match your hair color. Put your hair in a pony tail excluding 2 portions of hair, one on each side of your head close to your ear. braid those pieces and tie them each with an elastic band. Take one of the braids and place it over your head where you would normally wear a headband and pin. Take the other piece and do the same. Take out your pony tail and you are ready to rock. It takes about 3 minutes and is a super cute style that adds bohemian glam to your look.
