All In The Details

Over the years I have developed a healthy reverence for thrift shops. And now as a college student, they’re my wallet’s best friend, because sadly I don’t have money trees growing in my backyard. As many of you bargain-lovers know, finding trendy clothing in thrift shops is like finding ‘a needle in a haystack’ but finding mom jeans is…..the first thing you see. But these ain’t no mom jeans, these are acid-washed-high-waisted jeans that may have a cunning resemblance to mom jeans.

As temperatures start to rise, light wash jeans are a perfect summer staple.

How To: Maybe you go to the thrift store and the only jeans you seem to find are high-waisted and have a cunning resemblance to mom jeans? Maybe you’re like me and in the back of your mind you’re thinking, “I’m dying to get these pair of jeans but they aren’t cool and people will judge me”. It is time for you and me to stop being people pleasers and just buy those jeans. So find your perfect high-waisted jeans and wear them all summer long. You could pair them with a cute graphic tee, a statement necklace and some heeled sandals.
