Every season it seems like my high waisted jeans just keep getting higher…and, if you ask me, more flattering. Who knew jeans up to your belly button could be so waist cinching?! This pair is from Anthropologie and I actually took a pair of scissor to them to get that raw hem look. Still not totally sure that was the right decision given my lack of perfectionist tendencies, but they’re good enough for a casual weekend look.
The high waisted jeans aren’t the only reason I love this easy summer look though. Stripes are my go to on an almost daily basis during spring and summer, and pairing them with a statement earring is the perfect high low look that is ready for anything. Then there’s this lemon purse from Vera Bradley. If you haven’t taken a look at all of Vera Bradley’s newest pieces, you are majorly missing out. I used to love my floral duffel bag set back in high school and college, but now they’ve upped the ante to include gorgeous leather purses like this one. Seriously, how fun is it? Plus, I can wear it like I did here with a t-shirt and jeans or pair it with a dress for a nice brunch.
