Mom Jeans

w e a r i n g : Topshop jeans, Forever 21 shirt, H&M jacket, Jeffrey Campbell boots

Mom jeans... they're not boyfriend jeans, not high waisted jeans, but, mom jeans. A category proudly in and of themselves. I am out of the printed pants phase and the "chic sweatpants" phase, which leaves me with a slim amount of pant-options. Luckily, over the past months I have developed a huge amount of respect towards jeans. Yes, jeans, the things that have been around since 1873. Gray jeans, high-waisted jeans, low-rise jeans, boyfriend jeans, I am willing to wear them all! But, when I laid my eyes upon these babies, high-wasited + ripped mom jeans, it was love at first sight. Here, I paired my mom jeans with a simple button up and another new item, a leather moto jacket, the quilted detailing on the shoulders is the best part.

Schoolgirl Steal

w e a r i n g : Brandy Melville dress, Urban Outfitters shirt, Shellys London loafers

Yes, I feel like a complete schoolgirl in this dress and I love it. This dress is sure to be one of my favorites for the upcoming spring season, but for the chilly days, like today, I decided to pair it with a mesh turtleneck underneath. This top is one of the best layering pieces, it is lightweight and has a high neck. Perfect in my book. Also, let's make it a goal for me to not wear plaid in any more posts for a while. I think I'm going a little too plaid crazy.

The New Idea of Fast Fashion

Fast food, fast fashion, everything is rushed in today's world. For Moschino Fall 2014 Jeremy Scott decided to hop on this bandwagon also. Jeremy Scott put a spin on the McDonald's logo, the ubiquitous fast food chain now appears on high fashion clothing. Who would have thought? The controversy over this collection is impressive between accusations of mocking minimum wage employees and illegally stealing the McDonald's logo. However, I think this collection is genius, I can now look to Moschino for a light-hearted, fun approach to fashion thanks to Jeremy Scott.
