The story of jeans goes a long way. It marks a fashion staple in American history. A pair of jeans has built a tremendous community far bigger than one could have imagined. Nowadays, everyone wears jeans; farmers, artists, politicians, etc. Levi Strauss would be so proud of himself. Remember how in The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, the four best friends were connected by a pair of jeans? Well, the same goes for us. We are all connected by jeans. I know it may sound ridiculous at first but pay close attention when you walk out the door next time, take a look at what everyone is wearing. Look at stores and where our denim comes from, where it is made and transported.

Jeans can be worn throughout every season but when it comes to hot summer days, denim shorts are always the answer. They’re cool, comfortable and they go with just about everything. I love how this Fashionista wore the high-waisted shorts with her black and white striped shirt tucked in and sandals. The idea of this outfit is so simple but that is what makes it special. This look is symbolic, representing something that will never go out of style. I love this look because to me, it screams the classic girl next door. The girl who climbs trees and rides her bicycle everywhere, like Julie from Flipped. I always wanted to be that girl but, then again, that kind of girl is probably inside all of us. Go out with your pair of jeans and set her free!
