One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Three Ways To Wear Them

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Three Ways To Wear Them

I’m by no means suggesting that we abandon the skinny jean entirely, but wouldn’t it be nice to give baggy boyfriend jeans a try? I spent the entire weekend wearing mine and it felt like a vacation. BF jeans have been growing in popularity over the last year or two, but I’ve still noticed a resistance to them among my friends who associate baggy with dowdy. Not so! Slouchy can be sexy! And stylish! It’s all about how you wear it … here are three suggestions. Keep reading »

27 Outfits From Madewell’s Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook

Y’all know how I feel about Madewell. It’s okay. It’s not like I go into one of their stores every week, or could hold a Madewell sample sale from my own closet, or rarely go a day without wearing something with a Madewell tag on it, or could pass for a Madewell model if I was taller/skinnier/more rumply-haired. Nope, not at all. So, while won’t be clicking through their Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook, making note of all the adorable pieces that I neeeeeeeed, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Because I’ll begrudgingly admit it all looks really pretty cute and OH WHO AM I KIDDING? Click through the new Madewell lookbook, bitches — I want it all! Except the baseball caps, because hat hair.

Must Haves: 17 Warm & Cozy Sweater Dresses

On Tuesday, the high in New York City is going to be 12 degrees. I know some of you live in the midwest and that’s all normal and good for you, but for me, 12 degrees is CRAZY INSANE COLD. Like, that ain’t right. If I could, I would wear a snowsuit all day, but I’ve found all that excess puffiness inhibits my ability to type. Instead, I shall layer a warm sweater dress over my coziest leggings and boots and pray Mother Nature gets her shit together soon.

Sweater dresses are awesome because they are all the warmth of a sweater, BUT LONGER, and all the cuteness of a dress, BUT WARMER, perfect for layering over tights or jeans/leggings. You really need one in your closet for these godawful winter months. Here are 17 to consider.
