Easy Denim

No matter how much I protest, it seems fall weather is pretty determined to swoop in on us. As I write this, I'm wearing a sweater (!) layered over a silk blouse with jeans, and this morning I even had on a jacket. Ugh. Let's take it easy, weather (pretty please).
I've become pretty comfortable with the fact I'm a jeans-girl. Sure, I love a great dress, printed pant or even a skirt, but when I'm lazy and, more often than not, running short on time, denim is easy. I have several pairs I can dress up with a nice boot and top as needed, but I'm usually pretty casual both on weekends and in the office. I've been picking out more and more pairs in recent years with distressing—something I avoided as a teenager, since I was pretty good at wearing my jeans til they got holes in them myself and didn't need assistance from a factory. Now that I'm able to invest in a little higher quality and spend most of my days at a desk, I don't mind a few frays and holes.
While boyfriend styles have become my go-to lately (I live in this pair from Gap; also love this wash and these Rag & Bone's), I wanted to get a patch-inspired pair after reading this interview with Eva Chen. I love the silhouette of these Greywire's (a high-quality and affordable denim line in collaboration with Elie Tahari!) and they're the perfect intro to the patchwork trend without looking too retro.

  1. I'm jealous that it's fall weather there! LA has had a major heatwave and I can't wait for it to get a little cooler (not that it ever really gets very cool). Love your outfit!

  3. You look great in denim, but I have some unspecified phobia about jeans...maybe that everybody at my primary school wore them and I was just too much into skirts and despised everything that has to do with denim :D. But now, I can appreciate good pair of jeans...but still wearing skirts.
    Anyway, I love love the patchwork on jeans and pairing with the espadrilles.

  5. I've been wishing the fall weather would hold off as well - when it gets colder I become a total denim girl, but until then I want my bare legs as much as possible.
