An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

MCLV Style: Casual Fashion

Stripes are the perfect Spring and Summer daytime look – They go with everything and are easy to spice up to make a nighttime look. Here I paired a basic striped top with cuffed, slim-fitting jeans, and animal print accessories to make it a bit more interesting.

Despite normally being a dress girl I’ve been living in these jeans on weekends lately – So comfortable and so flattering. They look great with heels as well as flats, and I really like the dark wash which hasn’t faded at all.

What’s your favorite brand of jeans? Why are they your favorite?

  13. My favorite jean brand is a tie between J.Brand and Mother Denim. J.Brand fits my larger bootie with perfection and Mother is the most comfortable and chic denim you can buy. Seriously, I wish I had more than 2 pairs, but they are $$$$.

    This whole looks is adorable. I live for leopard and stripes, so this looks was perfection.

  25. I love these jeans! I might have to order, do they fit true to size? I have a pair of jbrand jeans that I feel are slightly snugger than my other denim.

    June 18, 2013 at 11:11 AM

    • Yes, they’re true to size. I ordered them online & LOVE their fit. They’re a little snugger post-wash, but that’s pretty standard.

      June 18, 2013 at 11:47 AM

  26. lovely post hun, hmm stripes are not good for my shape… mummy tummy hehe

    although you look lovely in them 🙂

    June 18, 2013 at 10:51 AM

    • You could always try a striped accessory instead if you like stripes – A scarf, hat, belt, bag… 🙂 There are lots of choices out there!

      June 18, 2013 at 10:54 AM

  27. I love those shoes and can’t get enough of stripes. I think every girl should own at least one piece. Can’t wait to see you!!


    June 18, 2013 at 8:52 AM

  28. This is my kind of look! I’m just so busy usually that casual is the style of the day. I love stripes and jeans together. Can’t say I have a favorite pair of jeans though. ^^
