playing favorites

cape3Cape: Conspicuous. T-shirt: J. Crew. Jeans: Mother (similar). Boots: J. Crew.

Every time I wear these flare jeans by Mother, I fall a little further in love with them. They are insanely comfortable (Mother makes the softest denim, like pajama soft), and the flared silhouette has become a fast favorite of mine after living in skinny jeans for the past few years (these ladies might have something to do with it). It took me a while to figure out how best to wear them, but I think I’ve finally got  the knack of it: Flared volume on top, flared volume on bottom and the highest heels I can muster to elongate those legs.

And yes, those are birds on my shirt, but no, I did not “put a bird on it.” Stop it, Portland. Just stop it.
