STYLE // x MUST-HAVE Denim for Spring/Summer
You all know how I LOVE my denim, and I'm constantly being asked where my favourite pairs are from. So here it is - my Spring '17 Denim Must-Have List with low + high price points!
I absolutely LOVE this style of jean because of its super high waist style + lower price point! This pair of jeans features a tapered leg, 5 pocket style, zip fly, and looks good cuffed too :) I find that these jeans fit smaller than usual, so I would order a size up from your regular size if you want to have that true mom-style fit! If not, they hug your lower belly perfectly leaving you with an extra lean figure ;)
Oh yes, THESE are the jeans that you have all been raving about on my Instagram page, and for GOOD reason! Ever since purchasing them on a whim with the Levi's Wedgies (because it was 30% off for 2 pairs or more!), I have not taken them off. I originally went into the Levi's store to grab a pair of the coveted Wedgies thinking they would be my new spring go-to denim, but boy was a wrong! I picked these 501 skinnes without trying them on thinking I'd return them eventually, but they ended up being the pair I fell in love with. These are 100% cotton, mid-rise (but really high-rise), 5 button fly, with a skinny straight leg. Because of its 100% cotton make, the rips are extra perfect - I mean, that is seriously what people ask me about when I wear them. I've had people ask to "touch" my pants because they are obsessed with how the rip was fraying! So go check out a pair for yourself :) This exact pair is still available at the Levi's stores or online linked below + above!
If you're looking for a pair of buttery soft jeans, then Fidelity is the answer! Fidelity is a Canadian brand handmade in LA from mostly Italian made fabrics. This pair in particular is my favourite style as it features a vintage like feel with some modern appeal. It's made of comfort stretch denim, which is 98% cotton and 2% elastane - so you get that vintage feel without that no-stretch constriction! Plus, this pair here has such a cute embroidered quote on the back pocket, who can resist!
They look especially good rolled up with some sandals / heels, which will be perfect for Spring as the weather still teeters between too cold for dresses, but too hot for heavier denim!

Last, but DEFINITELY not least - are probably (slash 100%) the most luxurious denim I own. I have been a CITIZENS OF HUMANITY girl for as long as I can remember. The first pair of designer jeans I owned were a pair of CITIZENS in a 24, that I long ago grew out of, but still have tucked away in storage for the sentiment... and for the one day (that probably will NEVER again come) when I will once again fit into those teeny tiny pants.
Since then my CITIZENS collection has only grown from living in the Rockets, scoring the Corey on a sale rack for 75% off, to dropping the dolla bills at Club Monaco after looking high and low for one of the last pair of LIYA's with the embroidered blossoms on the leg.
Was it worth it? OHHH YA. The LIYA's are the perfect mix between the "girlfriend/mom/boyfriend" fit - if that even makes sense to you ... but stay with me ! The LIYA's have a high rise fit with the 5 button fly, but because of the super soft PREMIUM VINTAGE material, they stretch, or also look amazing in a size up. Oh did I also mention that they come in a "cropped" fit, so for those of us who don't have those long model-like legs, these babies hit just at the ankles. If you're looking for that mom fit with a boyfriend leg fit, then I would go a size up. I'm wearing a 26 here, but I would have definitely preferred a 25 for a more fitted high waist girlfriend fit look.
ANYWHO! I hope you enjoyed taking a peak into my denim closet + peering into how my mind works when I look for the perfect pair of jeans to add to my very carefully chosen collection!
