Every time my mom sees me wearing these jeans she asks "why do you look like you were attacked by a wild animal" or "like you are homeless and can't afford a good pair of jeans" - she kinda has a valid point..LOL! But, I love a good cool, distressed, rebellious look every now and again.
I swear by how comfy these Zara boyfriend jeans are - they are my go-to #airportstyle when traveling and are so airy and cool for the summer. I wear them with kicks, heels, sandals - dressed up and dressed down.
This top is from one of my all time favorite designers - Daniel Silverstain - his style is so NYC - cool, chic and collected! The leather is light and the mesh details breathable, making it wearable in warmer times, but a perfect laying piece for cooler temperatures. The bag is from Katie Lares - she uses unconventional household hardware as accessories - like the handle on this petite beauty. The ring is from the Solomeina collection and makes a statement all on its own - no other jewelry necessary! All these amazing designs are available at Flying Solo NYC - a collective in Soho (434 West Broadway) owned and operated by the designers - that's pretty amazing!
I literally live in these Kensie shoes, and I am seriously on the hunt to find the exact pair - because I regret not buying a backup. They are neutral, stylish, comfortable - every standard passed for shoe perfection. If you see them anywhere - GRAB THEM!!!!!
I couldn't finish this post without talking about this mural wall I found in Soho - a little boy on a small bicycle challenging the older, aggressive, mean-looking competition on their motorcycles - making his own luck! It wasn't until after seeing the images, that I realized how dynamic and inspirational the message was - and how coincidentally perfect the wall was for this look - rough, rugged jeans and an armor inspired stop - the law of attraction! In life, you can't sit back and be fearful - waiting for things to go your way - you have to be ready for the challenges, ready to fight for what you want, ready to prove your magic - ready to "Let It Rip!!"
