One of my favorite perks of blogging is connecting with awesome people — other Christians, female entrepreneurs and small business owners. I love it! Each positive interaction I have through my blog is so special to me. That’s why I was thrilled to meet and work with Amber Kane, maker of fabulous hand woven cotton scarves and pillows. I stalked Amber’s scarves for a good while (and literally ‘liked’ every scarf photo she posted on Instagram). So when she asked me to style one of her gorgeous scarves, I had to say yes. When I received the Isadora scarf, I knew immediately that I wanted to put together a vibrant shoot with heavy contrast. The bright yellow and white storefront at the Piece Collective in Los Angeles made for the perfect spot to showcase the beauty of this scarf.
I don’t normally feature casual jean looks on here, but I couldn’t resist shooting my new favorite jeans: these white flares from Zara. If you’re like me, you’re growing tired of your worn out skinny jeans, and you’re searching for summer jeans that are both fun and flattering, yet not suffocating. If so, take a page from your parents’ fashion playbook book circa 1975 and invest in a sturdy pair of flared jeans.
I know what you’re thinking. There is NO way I’m sliding all of this into flared jeans. But, trust me. Flared jeans are surprisingly flattering on, and they instantly elongate your legs and add a bit of polish to your outfit. Flared jeans are the “it” jeans of the season and likely aren’t going away anytime soon. You don’t have to go full-out bell bottom (though that style is popular too right now). You can get a subtle flare, like the jeans I’m wearing here. Don’t be afraid to give them a try.
If you’re admiring Amber’s scarves but not sure you can afford one, head on over to my Instagram. I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to Amber’s store. If you’re looking for an awesome pair of flared jeans to wear every day this summer, here are some affordable options:
