I’ve been a huge fan of boot cut jeans for the past, I’d say, 6 years. I never really got into the flared jeans and when skinny jeans because trendy, I still stayed true to my boot cuts. I finally decided to take the plunge and try some skinny jeans and jeggings. (Yes, I tried those awful legging-tight jeans that are supposed to be flattering but ended up making me feel like my knees were suffocating.)
After trying on what felt like a mountain full of jeans (I think it was something in the range of 12-14 pairs), I decided on this one black pair of Citizen of Humanity jeans. I figured my closet could use its first pair of black denim.
One thing to note is that CoH makes perfect length jeans for a gal like me! I’m taller than the average girl and I always have a hard time finding jeans that don’t hover over my ankles. Thankfully, CoH makes jeans with a 34″ inseam!
After putting my outfit together (minus the shoes), I realized that I was rocking a very monochromatic palette (what else is new?). To spice things up a bit, I took my floral Geox flats for a spin. I haven’t worn these shoes for the past month and figured my outfit could use a bit more color than just black and white.
Also, if you’ve been following me on Twitter, you probably noticed a ridiculous amount of tweets about a manicure. For me, I’m not one who usually goes out of my way to get a manicure so it was a really special occasion for me to get my nails done. I got a square-tipped French manicure on Tuesday and I seem to have already chipped a nail (I decided to play some beach volleyball tonight). Look at how pretty the nails look! I’m going to be sad when I end up chipping more than just one nail (which I think will happen within the next two days haha. I’m so bad with nail polish).
