THE ESSENTIAL BOYFRIEND CUTOFFS & A POP OF MARIGOLD

Happy mid-week, friends! I had the best weekend with my sweet momma (so many yummy meals and lots of good catching up) and have been getting organized this week. The weather has been so lame these past few days here and I am looking forward to some hopefully warmer weather this weekend. I can’t believe it’s already mid- May and almost Summer! I love this time of year, but just wish it would all slow down a bit!

Today I am talking about my current obsession: boyfriend cutoffs. They are everywhere and I must admit at first I was a skeptic, but I think like all trneds, it just takes finding the right fit. I found these, from Moussy, on revolve.com just love the super distressing and the high waist. I think the key with this style is to get them more fitted at your waist so they still come off more feminine. I of course think it’s essential to throw on a fab belt (like my Gucci pearl one), but you dont have to. I just think a belt adds another element of femininity and of course some much needed personality.

I am also all about the the fact that yellow is huge this season. I am forever a lover of yellow as it’s just such a happy color and can be a great neutral. I fell in love with this dotted House of Harlow blouse on revolve.com and knew it would be even better in real life. I love love this top! It’s such a gorgeous shade of marigold yellow and it’s such a wearable fit. It looks great with white denim too!

Another way to keep your boyfriend cutoffs girly is to dress them up with a fab heel like these Valentino rockstuds. Of course you could go with a bit more simple wedge, but I love and prefer the contrast of mega-girliness and laid back masculinity. If I was wearing a simple tank or tee and wanted to go super casual, I would go with a bow slide (like these) or a gladiator sandal since both of those are again more feminine.

I just love the ease of this style of shorts and it really is such a nice switch up from all the super short options that are out. Here are some more I have been eyeing:

All the elements of this look (and a similar top and pair of shoes):

Have the most fabulous Wednesday! I am off to lunch with some girlfriends today and am just really hoping the sun comes out (I don’t know how people in Seattle or the PNW do it, grey days are no fun!)

Happy shopping, xo, Caro
