As much as I love my full midi skirts and ankle grazing culottes, there's something about the girl that can simply pull off a pair of great fitting jeans and an oversized oxford that I've always secretly envied. It's that effortless effort, that devil-may-care approach to what looks like it required a lot of thought and consideration, but really didn't at all. She spends 5 minutes putting it together and can turn 5 heads before she reaches the corner on her way to the subway.
As I've gotten older, I've been able to fine tune my approach to finding said classic pieces -- making sure before I invest in something, that it hits all the checkmarks on my list, which of course, is crucial when it comes to jeans especially. This pair by True Religion (the Halle Super Skinny) is a recent addition to the rotation and I'm loving the overall fit of them -- with just the right amount of give and stretch, they're comfortable without losing their structure (something I detest about jeans that have too high of a percentage of spandex in them). Plus, they're mid-rise which I think hits perfectly for that slightly tucked but untucked look with your oxford.
Plus, another bonus of getting older? I think I'm getting closer to nailing that "getting-dressed-in-5-minutes" thing -- it just requires a strong cup of coffee and an amazing set of braids from the night before that you wake up in. ;)
