To really feel the vibe of this post you need to be playing this song while you read it. Ha! I’m basically John Travolta-sashaying down the sidewalk. Don’t worry – the uniform of San Francisco seems to be yoga pants a hoodie sweatshirt, so I was definitely overdressed and drawing unwanted attention when we shot this look (my first post shot in SF, okurr!). Noted!
I recently snagged this camisole and these amazing high waisted flare jeans from Alice + Olivia when I was in New York at the end of May. If you’ve ever been in one of their adorable storefronts, you know how colorful and FUN the brand is. I felt like I was fully embracing my 70’s self in these jeans and knew I had to have them!
They recently launched a denim line, AO.LA, that has so many great pairs of jeans that are both stylish and comfortable. In the past, I’ve gotten a handful of emails and messages from you guys asking if “flares are still in.” My response is always, “do you like them still? Do they look good on you and make you feel confident?” In my opinion, when it comes to denim nothing really goes “out of style.” It just depends on what cuts and washes flatter your shape and make you feel your best!

Tell me if you have any flare jeans! I’d love to hear how you like to style them. Fun fact, I’ve also found that guys often like a flare jean. Christian, along with most of my girlfriend’s partners, loves a good flare.
