Cliché: red-and-white striped skinny jeans, graphic tee, denim vest, and baker boy cap

Guess what, dear readers??  It’s my birthday today!!  Woot woot!! 😁🎂

So you’ll forgive me if I once again keep things on the “short and sweet” side…right?!  I couldn’t skip making an appearance entirely, though; not when I have this super-cool new pair of skinnies to show off!!

You don’t have to look very far back through my blog to know that I have a serious love for all things striped…so it’s only natural that these rad red-and-white striped skinny jeans would end up coming home with me.  Yes, I’ve been shopping again – oh my gosh, Forever 21 is positively packed with cute pieces for the summer-to-fall transition – but I don’t feel too guilty about it; Robin starts his new job right after Labour Day!! 👍

There’s a sort of inherent rock’n’roll feeling to striped jeans…don’t you agree??  So I simply had to debut this newest addition to my wardrobe together with my prized Def Leppard tee, a little denim vest, and my go-to baker boy cap!!  In fashion circles it’s often considered a “faux pas” to put together pieces that have such a similar vibe – we’re supposed to go for contrast, not conformity! – but I think it’s an even bigger challenge (and more fun!) to create a look that could be cliché…but is totally true to your personal style esthetic.

And speaking of fun – I’m off to enjoy my birthday celebration now!!  Gluten-free vanilla cupcake and a Starbucks soy chai latte, anyone?!
