Lost love: skinny jeans, lacy tank top, and open-toe wedge booties

This is really difficult to admit, dear readers…but I’ve been kinda, sorta, maybe just a little bit, falling out of love with the skinny jeans silhouette over the past few months.  Say whaaat?!

But then I spotted this ultra-amazing pair at Winners…and the affair was instantly “on” again.  Isn’t it incredible how a few cool details – check out those diagonal seams and that exposed button fly! – can breathe new life into an old standby??

The lacy finish of my Aritzia muscle tank takes another “basic” into slightly more special territory, too.  It creates the perfect balance of tough and feminine…and adds a tiny twist to the forever classic jeans-and-tee combo!!

So yes – these skinnies are certain to make an appearance here again in the very near future; I might be desperately clinging to the vestiges of summer, but that doesn’t mean I’m not also dreaming of autumn ensembles to come!!  😉
