June 3rd, Where’d You Get Those Cropped Jeans?

  Sometimes things seem so simple and self explanatory that I honestly feel ridiculous sharing them.

But then my sweet neighbor, Laurel, tells me- ‘you should write this on your blog, some people may not know…’ and so here I am doing exactly that.

And actually, truth be told- it took me a LONG time to figure out this simple little trick! I used to see girls running around in the cutest cropped jeans and wonder where the heck they bought them.

So for those of you who are still searching for the perfect cropped jean- I have news for you!

Create your own!

Easy, right?!

I just went to Old Navy and found a pair I liked- in the perfect wash- and then I simple roll them up to make cropped jeans. So simple!

As Laurel pointed out- it’s kind of perfect because then you essentially have two pairs of jeans- wear them full length- or wear them rolled- and you have two totally different looks.

As for my scarf- I know most of  you around the country are probably dying at my scarf in the summer- but here in Seattle it’s only 55 degrees, so I need it to keep warm. I like the floral pattern with the stripes too… fun pattern mixing.

Enjoy your Sunday!

One quick thing I want to add- my brother in law just ran across the entire state of Kansas to raise money for Parkinson’s Disease. He did this in only 5 days! What an incredible accomplishment. I am so proud of him I just had to share.

To read all about it- click here- And if you are compelled to donate to his cause, I know he would appreciate it!  🙂

I actually wore this yesterday!  To my local friends, if you see me today in something different- you’ll know why! Sorry this is a bit blurry- I must have moved.
In the early morning, I even threw a cardigan on- it was that chilly. Oh summer- where are you?!

Dec 26th, 30 for 30- Day 26

I’ll be honest, I am looking forward to the end of this Challenge. I’m getting a little tired of these same clothes- and I bet you are too!

Today I’m wearing my skinny jeans (they look black in the photo, but they are actually blue denim). I’ve paired my jeans with this bluish/ grey sweater with the asymetrical hemline. To add a little color and style- I’m wearing this gorgeous silk scarf.

I’m wearing it ‘rock star’ style, (a name I just made up) but it kind of reminds me of Steven Tyler a bit. Not that I want to look like Steven Tyler… at least I don’t think I do?!

As for my shoes, I’m wearing these steel grey wedged heels. It’s a different look for me- normally I wear either ballet flats or boots with skinny jeans- but I decided to try something new. What do you think? Hit or miss?

I love the orange in this scarf! Such an upbeat color!
