7 For Mankind Jeans

In approximately four days, Art Basel starts. In approximately twenty-two days, Christmas Eve is here. And in twenty-nine days, a new year begins.

To say I’m stressed is an understatement. Once again, my schedule is overflowing with amazing events, holiday parties and family gatherings. No complaints but this time of year also means I seek complete comfort on my days off. Like, comfortable jeans.

Aside from seeking comfy jeans, I strive to find jeans that flatter my petite figure. Contrary to what you see on Instagram (angles, guys), my legs aren’t that long. They are slim which helps, sure. But they aren’t insanely long. The key to my leg-lengthening looks lies in the tailoring. Let me explain…

Holiday Style from River Island

JACKET, GRAPHIC TEE, STUDDED JEANS, SLINGBACK HEELS, EARRINGS: (c/o) River Island

So, IRL I tend to be reserved. But when it comes to dressing, I’m the complete opposite. I’m risky. Bold. Confident. I know, seems counterintuitive especially being a blogger – but it’s true!

I’m a homebody. I love snuggling up with my boyfriend while watching movies
on a Saturday night. I love cooking with him. I love reading (when I can find the time). Listening to geeky podcasts. Writing. Taking steamy baths and drinking wine. Decorating my apartment. I love it all… my “me time” at home is always super important to me!

BARDOT TOP, PANTS, SANDALS, CLUTCH, SUNNIES: (c/o) Missguided

Good afternoon everyone! Today I’m featuring not one – but two – new outfits from Missguided, a women’s fashion online store from the UK.

A couple months ago, I was introduced to Missguided after ordering a pair of wide legged pants from their petite section. (Again, with the wide legged pants – you can never have enough!) I fully expected to take them to a tailor (because I’m so petite) but was pleasantly surprised to see that they fit me perfectly – right out of the package! Then I started thinking, “surely everything else has to fit this way too?” And I got really, really excited because this never happens! 9/10 I have to take something to the tailor or fix it myself.

This season in Florida, Bermuda shorts are great – especially during cooler nights. This pair, found at Marshalls, has a hint of stretch for comfort and ease and can be worn just about anywhere in Palm Beach – with a crisp white tee and espadrilles to a casual dinner in heels.
