Happy Tuesday guys! Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂 Like I said I would, I totally relaxed this weekend and it was sooooo nice! On Saturday we woke up early and kayaked and sailed with JB’s dad then JB planned a picnic date night that night! On Sunday I worked all day but it was outside so it wasn’t that bad lol 😉 Let’s get into today’s post – can you tell by my title what its about lol? I love a good pun 😉
This outfit is constantly on repeat for me! When it comes to summer I want an outfit that is easy and that I feel good in – Enter a killer pair of flares!
I have to say that I am loving the flare trend right now! Its just so easygoing and perfect for summer! When I was in school flares were alllll I wore and I don’t know when but somewhere along the line they all disappeared from my closet, but these Genetic Denim jeans have changed the game!
Now I’m usually a skinny jeans kinda a girl, but I wanted to switch it up. Like I said these jeans were the game changer! Sidenote – I got these on major sale a few years ago from Shopbop’s Family & Friends sale they do each year. First things first, if you haven’t checked out that sale you need to! Its amazingggg! You know how sometimes you just know you need something and well I just knew. I missed my days of wearing flares and wanted a pair that felt lived in. These were exactly what I had been looking for!
These jeans are incredible! They are such a different fabric then most jeans – at least to me – they are so soft and stretchy but loose absolutely no shape when they are on. I’m super picky when it comes to how my jeans wear over the day and these exceeded my exceptions. Now a huge reason why I love flares is because they make legs look more elongated & I’ll be real with you I love how they make a butt look lifted. Girls, let’s all be real that no matter how good we feel, a great pair of jeans that fits well makes you feel just that much better 😉 Add in some heels to make those flares pop and you have a combo that is so hot for summer!
When it comes to styling with flares I feel that you really have to find a balance of your top. This is a main reason why I don’t break these babies out as much as I would like to be honest. This top is an old one from Guess but I love the boho feel of it mixed with the distressed denim.
Plus I LOVE the little detail of the XX marker for Genetic denim on the hip – so cute!
I wanted to keep the look super clean so I added this suede natural bag from Rebecca Minkoff – you may remember me posting it here FOREVER ago! I love this different look to the MAC mini that I love so much!
