I knew when I shot this look I wanted to give off a vintagey vibe…think ‘Summer in St. Tropez circa 1975‘.
And not ‘Abandoned Bowling Alley Parking Lot circa 2017‘ which is where I actually took these pictures.
Haha, but you know, you gotta do what you gotta do, righttt?
I actually put this look summery look together on kind of a whim. When the top arrived it was very billowy and large in the front which totally did not flatter my figure. So I decided to try and tuck it in all around. That didn’t look quite right either so I left the front tucked in, but undid the back to let it flow free.
And I think it works!
They are seriously the softest and most comfy denim ever. Even when I’m in Nordstrom browsing the racks I always know when I flip to a pair of BlankNYC jeans because I can actually feel the difference in the fabric. (I literally did this today and was like, hmmm I should write about this in my post!).
And FYI, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (#Nsale) is still going on until Sunday, so you can get tons of styles for 40% off! It’s worth checking out, even if you’re looking ahead to buy a comfy pair of jeans for Fall.
It’s perfect for summer because the fabric is light and flowy, which greatly reduces the chance of any visible sweat marks! Haha. I am all about practicality, people.
Not to mention, statement sleeves are such a hot trend this year and these bell sleeves definitely do not disappoint!
