Back to Basics: Dark Denim

7:42 PM

While the new year inspires a fresh start for many, this year has been all about getting "Back to Basics" for me. From simplifying my beauty routine to buying more practical flats instead of sky high heels, it's what inspired this series. And despite the negative connotation the word "basic" has taken on, I'm hoping to inspire you to simplify things in your life. To splurge on those pieces you reach for day after day, and to try to find your way back to a time before arm parties and tulle skirts...

There are few things as important as a great pair of jeans. I'm fortunate to work for an amazing denim retailer, so my Lucky Brand jeans are my current favorites, although I do love my J Brands and Rag & Bone's. I've been wearing the heck out out of my Brooke Skinny jeans from Lucky. They are dark, clean, and fit like a dream. I especially love that they are a mid-rise jean and I totally don't care if that makes me seem old; I just can't stand to be showing off my undies!  

A few tips to make your denim last longer: wash as infrequently as possible, don't put them in the dryer, and don't pull them up by the belt loops!
