denim is my go-to and my closet is filled with all different types, cropped, wide leg, boyfriend, skinny, you name it. i would say that there is an abundance of skinny jeans out there which are great and have a rightful place in your closet but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. skinny jeans work well with oversized sweaters, or longer coats but they don’t, because of how form fitted they are, always work as well with shorter items, like a cropped sweater or just a simple t-shirt tucked in. i rounded up a few denim options that aren’t skinny jeans but are also not completely oversized bell bottoms. there is a lot of middle ground with denim and i think these are are all fun and versatile options for any closet.  – joanie


($43) – split hem denim has been making the rounds in fashion, it’s slightly undone and relaxed without the tattered look of frayed denim. i like the mid-rise of this jean.
($50) – an edgier more trendy denim option at an affordable price.
($268) – baggy but fitted through the hips and butt so it still gives you a little shape.
($198) – i’ve been on the hunt for a pair of patchwork denim that feels a little 70’s but with a modern silhouette. i think these fit the bill nicely!
($100) – i totally understand that overalls are very trendy but i also think they deserve a chance. i like them best in black as it feels more sophisticated and paired with a feminine blouse underneath. you’ll be amazed how many times you reach for your overalls!
($158) – i own these jeans, i love these jeans and wear them all of the time. they are the closest you’re going to get to vintage levi’s without digging trying on 100 vintage pairs. these are great with shorter, cropped items as the fit is high.
($275) – i really like the large cuff paired with a super simple flat shoe. they have an ease through the leg that makes them very flattering.
($368) – can’t get enough of the ultra light wash with the pale pink patches. i don’t think i’m cool enough to pull these off but i know one of you out there is.
($265) – the fringe isn’t for everyone but i really dig these. i like how simple the cut of the pant is paired with the punch of fringe at the bottom. a simple tee is all you’d need with these.

here are a few inspiration pictures to get you inspired!

it’s no secret that pink has been a trending color for the last year or two. it mostly shows up in the softer hues like blush and rose and for the most part hot pink has been overlooked. but, i think that’s about to change. i think we’re going to start seeing a lot more hot pink then we have in a long time. it’s a strong choice but one that flatters many different complexions. i’m personally excited for it’s return and ready to see more bold colors out on the streets. favorite color combinations are pink + olive, pink + orange, and pink on pink. so, just in time for Valentine’s Day, here are a few of my favorite hot pink pieces. i also included a few tamer ones for those of you who aren’t ready to make the leap yet. – joanie

something about summer that makes me want to wear white every single day. i love a white blouse tucked into jean shorts, worn half unbuttoned over a bikini, or tied up at the waist with your favorite skirt. here are few white tops i have my eye on, most of them at a very reasonable price! – joanie

 $35  – i love the romance of an off the shoulder blouse.

 $128 – i’m okay with long sleeves in the summer heat as long as they aren’t skin tight. this top has a fun, laid back feeling.

 $98  – such a pretty little piece with the lace ruffles around the edges. i love anything that feels victorian!

 $45 – high neck and bare shoulders all the way! i like how they styled her hair on top of her head for this look too, i’d do the same.

  $99 – i own this top and have worn it so many times this summer. such a simple piece but it’s great with jeans or a skirt. half linen, half cotton.

   $45 –  very into swiss dot with anything and everything!

 $40 – can’t belive this is H&M, i love it so much. the soft v-neck and the delicate sleeve detail.

 $30 – simple and sweet.

 $30 – for the petite people in our lives! and love the cinches waist.




the perfect t-shirt | designlovefest

as you probably heard last week, we launched a with ! i really wanted to highlight the t-shirt for a minute because it was such a labor of love (took almost a year to get right!) and it is such a great shirt. as you know, i run the styled column on the blog and i’ve done a couple of posts highlighting some of my favorite tees. a t-shirt is a foundational piece for a wardrobe and over the years i’ve amassed a collection. i can pull out a shirt from my closet and tell you why i like it and also what i’d change about it. i’ve always wanted to be able to participate in designing one so this project was particularly exciting for me. i don’t think i even realized how much goes into designing something like this, so many meetings about the fabric and then about the cut and the fit and the embroidery. what we ended up with is a t-shirt that is 100% cotton (which is very important as it won’t stretch out and will hold up in washing!), a slightly distressed neckline so that it doesn’t look too perfect, the perfect sleeve length that flatters the arm, the length of the shirt hits right below your belly button which makes it very wearable, it looks great with a half tuck and is not too cropped which makes it much more timeless! there are so many directions you can go with a t-shirt’s fit but we made this one with a slightly boxy cut which gives it a real ease when wearing it and will pair well with so many things, like denim shorts, fitted overalls, a mini skirt or just a pair of jeans. we created four colors so there is something for everyone. i love the paired with super light denim, with a pair of dark jeans, is really pretty against the skin and the is an easy go-to all year long.

oh, and it’s made in the US which is also important to note! in terms of sizing, with a boxy t-shirt like this it’s most important that it fits you in the shoulder, i’d say order your normal size but if you get the denim jacket be sure to order up!

if you ordered one, i’d love to hear what you think! we had so much fun putting this little collection together and seeing people wearing it and loving it is just the best. we hope you love it! – joanie
