Summer Chillin' With My Boyfriend (Jeans)

I'll admit, I'm extremely late to the party but I finally purchased my first pair of boyfriend jeans! Why did it take me so long you ask? Well, I'm extremely picky when it comes to buying jeans.  I practically live in them and I need to make sure they make me look exactly the way I want--minus the awkward crotch bulge, cropped but not advertised as cropped or trumpeted hems that aren't meant to trumpet culprits that are lurking out there. Fortunately for me, I found them at Forever 21 and couldn't wait to style them. 

I spent a nice day in the Arts District of DTLA with amazing photographer and former classmate Christine, taking photos and enjoying Urth Caffe for the first time. Downtown LA is a classic location for beautiful and intriguing backdrops/adventures. Sidenote: the Salmon Scramble and African Spice Latte I had was GREAT!

When putting an outfit together, I love the look of mixing elevated and causal pieces. I purposely went a size up in jeans to enhance the baggy look and tied the top to keep the balance between loose and fitted. To spice things up, I accessorized with a clutch, heels and my current jewelry favorite, hoop earrings. 

The color palatte of this outfit was kept simple to bring attention to the pop of color on my heels. I normally don't like yellow, but it complements melanin so well I couldn't resist.
