My Favorite Jeans & Leather Vest



Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!
I had plans of getting some outfit shots earlier on Sunday, but I was running around like crazy and finally managed to get some shots before the sun went completely down. Here I’m wearing my ultimate favorite jeans, which happen to be from H&M. I’ve spent money on expensive jeans before, but there’s just something about these that I love. They’re comfortable, have a good amount of stretch, and the leg is the perfect amount of skinny. The best part? They were about $20. I actually got these hemmed a bit and want to get a second pair and keep them longer.I also wore my favorite leather vest that I got last year. I never thought I’d get so much use out of it when I got it, but definitely one of my current staples.

    Thanks Ladies!

    @Imogen, I got it from Balenciaga, but since it's a seasonal color (fall 2010), a reputable store online (or a reputable seller on eBay) would be the best way to go! 🙂
