Everyone has that pair of jeans that they can’t live without — and for me, that pair is my American Eagle Outfitters Hi-Rise Jegging in a perfectly faded charcoal grey. Sure, it might be your not so typical blue jean but I literally live in this neutral and can’t seem to take them off!
On a beautiful Saturday in the city, I was shopping around the Meatpacking District and popped into All Saints where I usually walk around in awe of their sea of grey selection…and there they were — the perfect pump in a beautifully distressed leather in faded charcoal grey. I had to have them! I tried them on with my grey jeans and had that “aha-moment”, my jeans had met their match!
Paired with my favorite white AE tee (which I could also analyze for hours…future post?), this is an incredibly easy outfit to take day to night. My favorite chambray shirt tied around my waist nods to the 90’s grunge trend we’ve been seeing and adds function for when it gets cooler at night.
For some color, I scored this Scotch & Soda clutch with awesome beaded detail that adds some texture to my look. The finishing touch? My latest sunglasses obsession — these mod-inspired cat-eye shades by Kate Spade Saturday. I love that instant edge they add to any outfit, and I dig the all-black frames and lenses.
What’s your perfect match?
