I GOT IT FROM MY MAMMA:


Just kiddin' 
I got it from the thrift store...







It's high-waisted. It's comfy. It's everything your mom would have worn in her prime days. It's...the mom jean. 

So what's so special about this fine piece of fabric that simultaneously creates the illusion of longer legs while making some people cringe? Personally, I have two reasons why I'm currently loving this trend: one, because it's a refreshing change from the skinnies and boyfriend jeans that many people wear and two, because I copped this from the thrift store for SEVEN DOLLARS. Am I a crazy good shopper or am I a crazy good shopper?

I love the fashion industry for its tendencies to recycle trends. I'm so glad that this particular style is "in" because I truly am a sucker for comfort (especially since I am not one to sport jeans all the time).

THE OMBRE WAY:


The ombre trend 
is here to stay...











While most gals are fond of expressing the ombre trend by dyeing their hair, I decided to go on a simpler route by wearing it! This beautiful blue skirt, which was gifted by my grandma in Korea (a lot of my featured clothing items on this blog actually come from her!), just screams summer and I thought it was appropriate to wear on a lovely day out with my girlfriends.

I paired this skirt with a more subtle black tank and a few delicate pieces of jewelry. The lack of print in this outfit kept the focus on the blue skirt--the ombre definitely stood out against the monochromatic color scheme as well.

A short and simple ootd for ya'll! Tune in for my next style post featuring a few changes...to my hair!

Keep it real,
