It's no surprise that I love jeans just as much as the next girl. When summer rolls around, there is nothing easier than slipping into a pair of jean shorts and you're good to go. Jeans are basically a neutral, so they work with everything.  That is why I always love to push myself and experiment with different trends, and go for a different style every time I wear them.

These distressed denim shorts have been getting a lot of wear since the weather has gotten warmer. I've been pairing them with everything from a denim shirt for a 'denim-on-denim' look, to the perfect summer weight sweater and gladiator sandals. This time, I wanted a look that was edgy and sophisticated at the same time - the perfect juxtaposition. The skull tank top and ripped denim shorts helped satisfy my edgy vibe, while the blazer and pointed toe heels provide the sophisticated feel I was going for.

Blazers are one of my favorite wardrobe staples. I often tell my clients to think outside the box when they hear the word, 'blazer.' I feel like whenever people think about blazers, they think buttoned up and stuffy, when in actuality, blazers are anything but. This striped blazer from H&M is made of cotton, which gives it a more modern feel. I am obsessed with H&M's blazers - they truly are the best. My closet is filled with blazers in every color of the rainbow - some are cropped, have embellishment, have fun patterns and even zippers, making them young, fresh and very me. 

Until next time!
