Boyfriend Jeans

DSC_0412wBoyfriend jeans are in, in, in and I’m not complaining! I’ve seen boyfriend jeans all over the  place and have been coveting a pair until I found these at Gap. Being quite petite, I worried about the loose fitted jeans making me appear even more stout but took a chance and bought them anyways. After trying them on at home again and wearing them out today, I’ve decided to keep them because they are so incredibly comfortable. For a person who hates wearing pants normally, I can see myself wearing these a lot this summer. This pair of boyfriend jeans are perfect for me because I found a pair in the “short” length, meaning I don’t have to roll the cuffs up a million times before they’re at the right length. Also, they’re distressed but not actually ripped unlike a pair I tried on at AE so I won’t accidentally make the rips larger.

Paired with the perfect pair of sandal wedges and a tote (some of you may have seen these on my Instagram already) from Francesca’s that I’m currently obsessing over, this boyfriend jeans look was completed along with a belt. I’ve been studying a lot lately as well so I decided to forego the contact lenses today and sport my Furla brand specs. I recommend wearing shirts that are a bit shorter or cut off at your waist to avoid making your jeans look overly slouchy or your overall outfit too loose.

Fremont Exploration {Seattle, WA}

Having no classes Friday afternoons this quarter has been so great because I’ve had the chance to start exploring different neighborhoods of Seattle.  My friend Sarah and I decided to take a look at the Fremont area because it’s a very easy and short  bus ride from campus. I’ve been around Seattle for 5 years now and on campus for almost two but hadn’t ever actually explored Fremont.

Fremont is adorable, filled with small (and really expensive) boutiques and doesn’t lack places to eat either. The shop owners were all friendly and helpful, creating a comfortable environment to shop it. We spent so much time wandering through each one, wanting everything in the stores.

Here’s a peek at some of the cutest boutiques, go check them out for yourself when you get a chance!

OOTD: May 1, 2014

I had a pretty busy day yesterday so I wasn’t able to get this post out until now, my apologies! It was again, very very warm yesterday, somewhere in the 80s which is record breaking for this time of year in Seattle. My afternoon lab was cancelled so I had a free afternoon in where I was able to go downtown and visit the Seattle Art Museum. Later in the evening, I had some dinner plans as well so I needed a comfortable outfit I could wear all day.  I have to admit, this look is probably now one of my favorites.

It’s a little more “complex” than what I’m usually wearing and these new shorts took a little bit of a leap of faith in me to wear but I absolutely love them. They’re incredibly comfortable and still manage to look chic.

OOTD: April 30, 2014

Today was hot. Like really hot, for Seattle. I think we hit 81 degrees today and I’m kind of a baby when it comes to heat. Today’s outfit of the day comes with an iced coffee in hand from Cafe Solstice!  ( Look for an upcoming post about one of my favorite study spots and cafes!)
