I did it— I finally caved and bought these Nike Frees as a present to myself, and I've already worn them nearly every day since they arrived! If you had asked me a year ago, I never would have taken myself for a sneaker gal. But these days, whether it's convenience (laziness?), comfort, or my signature casual style, I find myself reaching for my sneakers more often than not.

The whole camel + red thing is still going strong and I'm not mad about it. One thing is new though—you might have noticed that I don't usually wear a bag in my outfit posts. My philosophy with bags is that they should either be able to carry everything (i.e. my laptop), or only the bare minimum. And since I haven't been able to justify forking over a good chunk of my paycheck for the CĂ©line Trio, I usually opt to go sans bag most weekends. I recently found my mom's Bally bag, and while it's a little on the dressy side with the gold hardware, it's the exact size and length I'm looking for. Fingers crossed she won't notice that it's gone missing— at least until I get one for myself!

P.S. Wanted to let you guys know that you can get your first month of Rocksbox free with code 'stephxoxo' until January 31st!

Distressed boyfriend jeans are like my kryptonite, and this Lucky Brand pair is no exception. I've been waiting patiently for these to be restocked in my size and it was worth it— I mean, perfect slouch, perfect faded blue, extra distressing, check check check. Slightly dressed up with sleek ankle boots and a bold red lip (my new favorite accessory), this is one of those outfits I can wear almost anywhere and feel extra confident— even if it's just to browse Crate & Barrel like I did right after we shot these.
