Fitcode x AG

Ahhh, buying jeans. This is a personal topic that I like to talk about because I struggled for a long time in my teenage years and early 20s to find jeans that fit right. As someone who has a non-ideal proportion combination (hourglass + big hips + cycling thighs + long shins), jeans have been always been a bit of a pain to shop for. Mix all the different combinations of measurements between premium denim brands sizing and trying to buy jeans online and I have a lovely pickle of a problem on my hands!

I posted about Fitcode back in 2015 when Fitcode first launched, and I’m excited to share today’s post in partnership with where the brand has come almost 2 years later!

If you’re not familiar with Fitcode, this company’s mission is to help you find the perfect pair of denim no matter what the brand. By taking a quick fit quiz, you can find out what your “Fitcode” is and how it maps to multiple denim brands. Once you have your Fitcode, you can shop personalized recommendations of styles and sizes in the boutique.

Earlier this month, Fitcode announced their partnership with one of my favourite denim brands, AG, and I’m excited to get to be part of this launch! What this means is that you can now shop across all of AG pieces using your Fitcode to find your next perfectly fitting pair of jeans! All of the outfits in today’s post feature pieces styled from AG’s Spring 2017 collection paired with their latest denim styles. What a treat it was to get to play around in the AG collection!

A huge thank you to the Fitcode team for continuing to be one of my favourite Seattle-based companies to make shopping for jeans online so much easier!

Bright whites and stripes

It’s been raining Spring Showers non-stop in Seattle, which makes looking back at Punta Cana vacation photos super fun! Dug up these gems from the last night in the Caribbean when we went out to a steak and ribs house for dinner. Of all days, I of course decided to wear white denim on the day that we had to eat dinner with our hands! Lets just say that these were the first and last time that the jeans looked so pristine… ;)

Outfit ideas: white jeans and striped tee
outfit details:
striped crop top: Moorea Seal (similar)
white denim: Michael Kors (similar for under $50)
sunglasses: thrifted & borrowed from T
tennis silhouette sneakers: c/o Brooks Heritage (exact)

This crop top is one of my absolute biggest wardrobe favourites. I picked it up from the Moorea Seal store last Summer and wore it all Summer long (here). Although this blue version is no longer in stock, there is a super cute white version with thin stripes available this year!

If you’re in the market for other cute clothes this season, don’t forget to stop by the Earth Day Blogger Closet Sale tomorrow in Pioneer Square! It’s going to be a ton of fun!

Vacation style with floral print pants

It’s been rather quiet here on the blog for the last week… If you’ve been following along on IG, you’ll know why! I had originally intended to have posts scheduled to trigger while on vacation, but as life would pan out, I was scrambling until the last second to even pack my suitcase for this trip and blogging fell on the back-burner.

After spending a week in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, with the goal of being a beached whale every single day, it’s been nice to come back to reality. Being aware of needing “me time” (and some sunshine), unplugging – for the most part – and lounging on the beach every day was exactly what I needed to recharge.

Floral print pants

This was one of my favourite outfits of the entire trip. I had originally packed a few pairs of shorts and summer dresses, but with the number of mosquito bites I received within the first few hours of landing (counted ~20 on my legs, no exaggeration), long pants were the way to go! These floral print pants from J.Jill were a lifesaver! They’re listed as ankle pants, but as you can see, they’re pretty long. Perfect for what I needed to keep my ankles from being bitten. ;)

Is it Spring yet?

After springing forward with time this weekend, it still doesn’t quite feel like Spring. Call me crazy, but the hail/rain/snow weirdness that Seattle is experiencing is really throwing my wardrobe planning for a loop! Every time I venture out with exposed ankles (or even shins, in this case) it happens to be beautiful in the mornings and then an absolute wreck when it comes time to trekking home later in the day. Mother Nature, please make up your mind so I can wear this dress out more often without getting “shin-sicles” (shins + popsicles = shin-scicles).

minimalist outfit idea: mockneck midi dress and moto leather jacket
outfit details:
cropped moto jacket: MISSGUIDED (similar)
mock neck maxi dress: c/o J.Jill (exact)
mixed media necklace: Maslo Jewelry (similar)
booties: Seychelles (old; similar pair)

minimalist outfit idea: mockneck turtleneck dress and moto leather jacket

I realize that I’ve been reaching for this cropped moto jacket every day that it doesn’t rain. It’s by far one of my favourite coats (worn in the Summer, Fall, and Winter) and I can only hope that MISSGUIDED releases an updated version of it this year for everyone who’s been asking about it!

Fall wardrobe to winter

Here we are, the last day of February. What an insanely weird Winter we’ve had in Seattle where the temperatures would bring snow one day, almost-shorts weather the next, and then pouring rain for the rest of the week. I’ve been having a tough time trying to keep up with all the mid-season changes, but doing my best to roll with the punches.

With the goal of 2017 being quite light in clothing purchases in an attempt to stabilize my closet (and number of belongings, in general), I’ve been getting creative with the pieces that I already own in my wardrobe. A lot of the pieces in today’s outfit are reworks carried over from last Fall. The only new additions are the floral print shoes, which are part of J.Jill’s February collection.

Spring floral outfit ideas
One of the biggest requests I received after making a post earlier this year about blogging more authentically was to share more “real life” outfits and show how pieces in my closet are getting reworked from season to season. All of the outfits shared on this blog are ones that I wear out and about in real life. It’s a little challenging when I only post an outfit once every 3 days or so, but I hope to keep showcasing what a real life, working minimalist closet, can be!

In the outfit details above, I’ve added links to old posts wearing the same pieces. As much as I love to read traditional fashion blogs that are geared more towards style aspiration, living in a city with small closets is not exactly conducive to owning a lot of clothes. Here’s to continuing to inspire one another to make the most of our closet and transitioning pieces from one season to the next.
