I’ve always wondered why Fridays have been recognized as the popular “Jeans Day.” That thought created another thought. Why are jeans a go-to fave? Is it because they’re comfortable? Easy to style? Great for hiding the hairy legs? and while we’re at it, where do jeans come from?
Just like humans, jeans have evolved since the beginning of their time. Over the past three months, I have been a Blogger in Residence for YMI Jeans. Through out this journey, I’ve been able to put my questions to the test and explore ‘behind the seams’. I took you guys on a tour of YMI headquarters, showed you how to DIY denim, and I even interviewed the CEO of the company. For my last assignment, I still needed one question answered. What is it about jeans that make it never go out of style? I’m putting my reporting skills (and college degree!) to use by uncovering the answer to my question. While we’re at it, I’m also sharing tips for helping you find the right fit and style. Because there’s a lot! I’m on a mission. Hope you enjoy watching.
Thanks for watching! Visit my youtube channel to see more style videos. To shop any of the YMI styles you saw in the video, visit their site here. Hope you’ll saz-scribe while you’re at it. 😉

Casual fall style kind of day. If there’s one item of clothing I’ve worn about a million times in the past 2 months, it’s definitely this denim button-up shirt. No shame here. It was totally made for wearing on repeat and is soo easy to style with any pair of bottoms. I have tons of denim shirts butthis oneis always my go-to every time. Another fave I’m addicted to right now is these jeans that fit my 5’2” frame. I always like rolling the bottom up for some reason but these actually look cute rolled down as well. I like stretchy and super comfortable jeans that I can walk around in all day (or night) and ones that don’t cut off my circulation. Ya feel me? Now that it’s officially fall, keep warmer tones in mind. I’m sure you’ll still see me wearing plenty of color, but get ready for a little mix and match.
How #todiefor are those black heels? Dolce Vita let me pick two pairs when I visited their showroom in NYC and instantly I knew I had to have these! They make me feel really tall and more importantly – they don’t kill my feet! <3
P.S… 5 Fall Trends to Try
1. Boyfriend Style- His and hers styles will remain a popular trend this season.
2. Dark Beauty– Think bold lips, edgy eyes. Not at the same time though! 😉
3. Say YES to Moto- I’m talking everything from jacket to bad-girl boots and leather galore!
4. Layer up– If you live in a warmer city go for light-layers such as a loose cardigan and shear hosiery. Don’t forget the ankle boots.
5. Matching sets – This one is a personal fave that I can’t wait to try! Think crop top with a pair of shorts in a matching sporty pattern or in a monochromatic fall color.

Random fact about Me: I am the most indecisive person when it comes to picking a place to eat or while I am shopping. It’s the libra in me! #IJustCantDecide
Today I am excited to share how I rock my True Religion jeans. I’m terrible at math but, Denim + Birkenstocks + a flannel button-down around the waist = So 90’s.
Let’s talk denim. If there’s one style of clothing I’m going to be wearing for the rest of my life – it’s denim. For decades, we’ve seen how the classic jeans have transformed and evolved into a modern day favorite. Denim jeans have been styled in a gazillion ways by women, men and children of all ages. Hey! I’ve even seen doggy outfits incorporate denim jeans into their pup-wardrobe. It’s safe to say – jeans ain’t going no where. Especially, with there being so many different fits, styles and washes out there – the possibilities are endless! Today I’m sharing my denim style in a very 90’s throwback kind of way.
Today I partnered up with Chictopia and True Religion to share my denim style. I’m wearing the “Cora” mid-rise jeans from True Religion’s newly launched line of 12 core fits . You should definitely check out the array of new styles they have to offer. The inspiration behind each fit is the idea of denim disrupted by innovation. When some of you think “True Religion Jeans” you may think a specific style or their trademark stitching. But notice they’ve refined & completely redefined with a minimal twist to be your perfect, everyday jean. The fit I’m rockin’ is tailored perfectly for any of you gals who like the everyday skinny jean look without it being super tight and unbearable when you’re trying to put them on and take the off! We’ve all been there. 😉
I love how versatile this straight leg jean is. You can fold over the hem like I did for an easy/relaxed summer look or try un-tucking and wearing it with a sexy heel for longer legs. I’ll admit, I had to have this same exact pair in black (shhhh!) and love how the darker wash looks for night. What style do you prefer? Get in on the action at #DenimDisrupted
Thank God it’s almost Friday! (Aka 4th of July weekend, can I get a woo! woo!) On a not so thrilled note, what a hot a** week it has been here in Texas. I’m happy we got a little rain last night but DANG it’s unbearable! I’m here for another week before traveling to the Middle-East, which I’m sure will be even hotter. *Insert the anxiety emoji face*
I’ve been keeping my wardrobe + makeup light lately. I refer that in the summer time. This lazy baseball crop top (a vintage find) is so comfy and I like that it’s yellow (my current fave color!). I’m also really into this whole leopard slip-onstrend. I’ve been seeing stylish gals pair them with dressy skirts and summer dresses and in my opinion it totally works! Mine have seriously been glued to my feet ever since I got them. I love how comfortable and easy-to-wear they are. Plus, anything dipped in leopard is always a win in my book.
P.S Notice a little cameo action from my Shiba Inu pup Yoshi!? Ahhh Doesn’t he make your heart melt?! He is just so freakin’ cute and is seriously the sweetest little baby in the puppy world!
If you’re noticing a flashblack to the eighties than you ‘guessed’ it. GUESS is bringing the 80’s back with the launch of their 80’s inspired “throwback” collection called GUESS Originals which features these ahh-mazing high-waisted cropped jeans with their classic GUESS logo on the back pocket. The logo was the first thing that caught my eye. It’s so cool (and surreal!) getting to partner up with a brand that I’ve admired all my fashion life! It’s even cooler getting to see an Originals Collection 80’s comeback like this! Notice the fit and style of these skinnies. I love high-waisted jeans more than anything because they suck in the belly and make your legs the focus! 😉
You can pair it with a crop top and blazer like I did, or maybe keep it simple with a loose tee. No matter what your style is, these white jeans are the perfect spring/summer staple. I’ve been wearing a lot of white lately (well duh it’s spring!) because it literally matches everything (it’s an easy go-to!). To finish off this classic 80’s inspired look, of course I added a fun pop of color with the blazer. Oh how I love spring. And throwbacks.

Sometimes denim on denim is the best way to go. I love making a bold statement and wearing fun colors, but sometimes I like to chill out. I paired my new studded chucks (ah so obsessed!) with this classic denim jacket and skinny jeans for a casual/chill day in San Diego last Sunday. It got a little chilly after sunset so I decided to put the jacket on!
