Are you feeling the flares yet?

Meet my new flares.  They just keep creeping into my wardrobe.  Distressed and an undone hem.  I know, but I didn't have any in this light of wash.  And again Mavi, they are fitting my backside like a glove.  I couldn't help but tuck my shirt in all the way around.   Full Exposure.  Typically I am a mullet tuck girl but I am stepping outside of my comfort zone, and documenting it.

I have a friend who has legs for days, you know the kind - she rocks skinny jeans and flats like nobody's business.  She has had some hesitation into flaredom, they feel a bit "costume-like" to her.  Maybe that's why I love them.  And I love the long leg elusion that they create.

So bring on the dress-up.

In all serious, if you are thinking of flares these are a great place to start, great price, great fit.  Higher waisted and perfectly distressed.  These are your summer jeans.  They even come in different lengths.

My leopard print blouse is an old favorite.  I love the print, and the sleeveless button up style, its longer in the back but light weight, lending itself well to being tucked in or not tucked in - see it here.

Plus I am super stoked over my Goodwill score - a burgundy suede skinny belt for .99cents.
