I’m a devoted skinny jeans girl and by this point it’s been years since I’ve worn anything else. So maybe it’s time for a switch up? (Haha.) Anyway, lately I’ve been seeing cute girls about town in boyfriend jeans, so much so that they’ve begun to percolate in my head. Usually in magazines and fashion blogs, I see these styled with super high heels. That is a cute look of course but where do I ever go wearing heels and jeans at the same time? So these photos of girls wearing them with oxfords or brogues are where it’s at for me. Tomboy for life.

I thought this was just my obsession but it seems the fashion world is agreeing with me. Marble prints are having a moment right now. They are black and white and kind of reminiscent of tie dye, so they are perfect for casual summer wear. When I saw this Phillip Lim 3.1 geode print, I totally swooned. I mean, how gorgeous is that print? Nature doesn’t make mistakes, right? (And on that note now I am wondering why it’s so common to wear flower print but stone print still seems so unusual.) But this is all proof that marble print works in all forms – even on shoes and tote bags.

Birkenstocks are forever burdened with their hippie beginnings. But these days they seem to be the perfect companion for the looks I’ve been favoring. When paired with simple skinny jeans or pants and a leather jacket, they become a sculptural accessory.

In recent months, I have turned back into my New Age-y self complete with tarot cards, tons of incense and an ever-growing crystal obsession. I wear a quartz around my neck at all times and I usually have a few stashed in my purse to boot. Fortunately, there are places to get them these days that aren’t from some strange hippie shop. I’ll be sticking to my quartz for the time being, but it’s always good to know where to get an upgrade.

Neoprene is definitely trendy but I think that’s because it’s really fun, especially in such bright and happy prints. My experience wearing neoprene is limited to wetsuits (haha) so I’m not exactly sure what it would be like to wear. Some of the bulkier silhouettes seem like they might be uncomfortable or something but who knows. But I can tell you that these skinny skirts and sculptural dresses seem perfect for this material. And the prints just add that bit extra oomph. Even the more classic floral prints seem updated in such a futuristic fabric. Have a look.
