I am a sucker for a good pair of ripped jeans. I will admit that this has become a new obsession. I’ve joined the bandwagon! I find that a pair of jeans can make the outfit especially when they’re a great fit and feel perfect; not that stiff kind of feeling.
I was on the look out for skinny jeans with ripped details for awhile now and am happy to say these are my favorite find! American Eagle online carries tailored sizes unlike in store. The ones I bought were ‘short’ which is perfect for me because I don’t need to drop by a tailor and get them hemmed. If you’re ‘tall’ they also offer that option with your normal sizing. Win win!
The jeans I am wearing are actually made from recycled coffee grounds. Not only are these incredibly comfortable, they’re equally trendy and great for the environment! You can literally wear these with anything. For that dress down look, throw on a pair of slip on sneakers and a sweater and you’re all set. To dress them up, you can add a pair of heels with a long sleeve shirt, fur vest and sunnies. Add a clutch and you’re ready for a night on the town!
My rule has always been try on several pairs of jeans until you find your perfect match! It is an investment piece and great for your wardrobe. Once you find ‘the pair’ you’ll understand my excitement. 🙂
I am always on the lookout for different styles of jeans. What are your favorites? Please share below. xo

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to tackle all of my goals and dreams head on this year. No excuses, just hit the ground running! I think that’s the great thing about a new year; it’s a clean slate.
I am wishing every single one of you a year full of much love, happiness and success in everything that you do. Don’t be afraid to dream bigger, take risks, be passionate about what you do, love unconditionally, push the boundaries and want the very best for yourself. Now is a time for reflection. For pausing. For learning. For growing and for manifestation. Here’s to an incredible year ahead! xo

Hibernating in Style: Coffee Table books

If you’re looking to revamp your home, coffee table books are a great way to start. I’d say choose books that reflect your personal style and interests. My favorite ones are Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon or Stars in Dior. They are stunning to have on display! Now with winter around the corner I can bet a lot of us would prefer to stay in and be cozy, so why not celebrate your hibernation mode in style! 🙂
Above are a list of my top favorite books that I’ve collected over the years. Some others I recommend are Money Master the Game by Tony Robbins or The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
