Pinspiration: Boyfriend Jeans

Shop boyfriend jeans:
Medium wash  || Distressed || Super distressed || Light wash || Dark wash

Lately I have been loving the style of boyfriend jeans! They look so comfy and relaxed (which is not usually two words I ever use when describing jeans). I'm not much of a fan of skin tight skinnies, but I think I could definitely learn to love these slouchy but chic pants! At first I was like what the heck do you wear with them, but then I took to Pinterest and found all of these amazing ideas. They are one of those style of jeans that you can wear anything with! It is my mission to find some classic boyfriend jeans in the next few weeks while going back to school shopping (basically the only good thing about going back to school, am I right?).

Let me know if (and where) you've bought a pair of BF jeans and loved em'!

Coronado Houses

While we've been in Coronado the last few weeks I feel like every street we go down we see the cutest houses. The coolest thing is, no 2 homes look alike! They are seriously all unique and one-of-a-kind homes and they are all so so cute. They're are all types of styles. Some are Spanish Mediterranean, Modern, Traditional; you name it, Coronado has it!!
While bike riding down the streets (which I've done a ton of since I've been here!), I snapped pictures of some of my favorite houses. I think I had over 20 pictures by the time I was ready to write this post, because there's just so many incredible houses here, it's hard to pick favorites!

But seriously, doesn't this house look like a doll house not a real house!?  

I love the white fences! 

Some are adorned with flowers...

...while others house kid friendly items. 

Some look like they are from a completely different country.

I feel like this house should be in Arizona or Texas (or is it just me?).

This ones just plain adorable, and the chairs add a fun pop of color!

Can I just live in this one now, please?

I just realized most of the houses I took pictures of were blue and white. #sorrynotsorry
 I must say I do really love the color combo! It just seems so clean and classic.

Which house is your favorite?

$3 Nine West Purse

Yes, this is the purse that was featured in the Natalie's Style post from earlier this week. While we've been in California we've been doing tons of shopping, and while we've done some high end shopping, we've also done some savvy shopping. As you may know, my mom and I are big into garage saleing and checking out the local thrift stores. So that's exactly what we've done while here in California! Believe it or not, I bought this Nine West purse at a thrift store for $3!! Yes, only 3 dollas, isn't that crazy?! I don't usually ever shop at Nine West, but I do love this purse, and it looks brand new! I checked online and their purses cost all the way up to $200, so I think $3 was a steal! 
Stay tuned for more garage sale & thrift store finds from my trip!

Since this purse wasn't purchased brand new at the Nine West store I couldn't find it anywhere online but here are 2 similar looking purses!

Are you a garage sale lover or thrift store junkee? I'd love to hear about the treasures you've found!
