Happy Tuesday and carpe diem! Or is it "carpe denim?" It's nearly Labor Day and start of fall style is just hanging in the air. I'm craving nothing more than to be able to wear jeans 24/7 but it's still a little too hot in Dallas to do so…I have however been able to test drive the two latest pairs of Rockstar mid-rise jeans I recently picked up from Old Navy and am obsessed (obsessed) with both the black and light-gray washes. The mid-rise has the same great stretch and fit as the original Rockstars but the waistband obviously sits a little higher. At first I was scared they would look like mom jeans on me (no offense to the hot mamas out there!) but the higher waist makes them a) even more comfortable and b) even more flattering because they give your legs a longer look.
In my opinion, nothing can replace the look of a crisp white tee with a pair of jeans. It’s easy, clean, classic and can be made to look dressy, edgy, casual, or anything in between depending on how to accessorize and style the rest of the look. As a self-confessed white t-shirt hoarder, I’m very picky when it comes to fit, quality and price and what Old Navy has to offer in their tee department is on par with all of the aforementioned needs. The vintage style v-neck is so soft and rivals the look of others five times its cost and I love the feminine look of wrap-front tee I got after falling in love with the sleeveless version this summer.
