AJ Wears :: Wide Striped Pants

I love me some wide leg pants. As a shorty, I can hide some giant heels underneath and pretend like I'm an exotic height, like 5'5" (and three-quarters or something). Bonus points for these pants, which have a delightfully stretchy waistband.

Top, I forgot (similar from Nordstrom Rack).
Pants, BB Dakota (rent them // buy them).
Bag, 3.1 Phillip Lim (similar color from Forever 21).

AJ Wears :: A Denim Shirt

I'm having a love affair with short sleeve button ups right now. I have no idea why. They do provide a certain amount of extra coverage on the arms, which I can appreciate; but I think it's the actual shape that I'm so drawn to. It makes the shape masculine, but feminine. Cool, but classic. I saw this photo on Pinterest today and almost lost my mind, so now I'm searching for a cropped sweater with short sleeves too (because that's practical). Anyone else feeling me on the grandpa look right now?

AJ Wears :: Slip-on Sneakers

I always make a conscious effort to not look like a total hot mess in public. I don't always succeed, but even when I'm not planning on blogging an outfit I like to be somewhat put together. This weekend was full of festivities, from canoeing down the Caddo River to watching my friends Amy and Elizabeth play kickball. Comfort is key on these sorts of days, so I'm glad that cute sneakers are all over the place this season.

Also, I'm thrilled that slip-on sneakers are back. Mmmm, smells like high school. OnlineShoes.com sent me this pair to review and the verdict is - I love them. They're super comfy and way cute. I actually just went to look up the link for these and found a bright pink pair I want now. Go figure. Anyone else loving on these style sneakers right now?
