Embroidered Denim Everywhere (with SPS Blog)

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! I can't believe we are entering a new year. 2016 was filled with so many interesting, challenging and unforgettable moments - but I'm so ready for a fresh start. I wish you all a year full of blessings, health, happiness and lots of love! One thing I was very excited about was closing out the year with a visit from one of my dear friends, Stephanie, who was home for the holidays from NYC. We were finally able to collaborate on looks together and it was so much fun! If you've never checked out her blog, please do! She offers some amazing content and she's absolutely gorgeous! This is her look from that same day. I wanted to showcase my latest favorite jeans that have joined my closet - embroidered jeans. This has been such a cool trend over the Fall and I think it's one of the best ways to amp up a simple look. It gives off a vintage, but super modern, fell all in one - win! I was sent these particular jeans from New Look (sadly, they're all sold out! :(...) but this pair and this pair are great alternatives. They are high-rise with cut-offs at the knees and extremely comfortable. I love the grey wash because it gives me so many options to work with when it comes to tops and shoes. To give the jeans a more sophisticated twist, I threw on a buttoned down pinstripe top (similar here and here), and black, low-heel, strap sandals. This outfit has been perfect for almost any occasion. Whether it's running quick errands or grabbing lunch with friends, it's so comfortable but still looks put together and interesting. If you haven't gotten your hands on SOMETHING embroidered - what are you waiting for?! It's the one piece your closet is craving (insert winky face emoji here).
