Sometimes a girl just wants to be laid back. And relaxed. And today was definitely one of those days.

Now as you’ve probably noticed in past blog looks, I am a fan of skinny jeans. Or boyfriend jeans. One thing I normally do not wear is a bootcut or flare style. However, this is a current trend for this season and I thought, “Why not?” So while on a shopping trip to Kohl’s, I came across this Simply Vera pair of bootcut jeans in a dark wash (I prefer dark wash jeans…that way you can easily dress them up or down). I have bought Simply Vera items before, but never jeans. So once I tried them on in the dressing room, I must admit…I was pleasantly surprised! The fit is great and it’s a new look that I enjoyed wearing!

Other than jeans, another necessity for any woman’s closet is a chambray top. I found this Kenneth Cole Reaction button down at Marshall’s and immediately grabbed it off the rack without thinking twice! Chambray tops are perfect with jeans, but you can also throw it around your waist while wearing a dress or pair it with a printed skirt!….the possibilities are endless with this top! Dress it up or dress it down. Think of it as a pair of dark wash jeans!

The sandals are great, aren’t they? Lauren Ralph Lauren (found ON SALE at Macys!!!!) sandals with a stacked heel in a cognac color? Um, yes please! They worked well with the bootcut leg and are not only comfortable, but chic as well.

Remember, blog readers! I was looking for laid back and relaxed. Put these three things together and add on some gold jewelry, two tone sunnies, a BCBG Paris bag (I seriously cannot get enough of the BCBG brand!) and pile your hair on top of your head in a messy bun and Voila! A laid back, relaxed and stylish look to run around in.

…and while your out, be sure to grab some coffee! We all know I couldn’t resist!
