AJ Wears :: Navy Pants

Happy two-year anniversary to these pants, which I bought in Nice at an H&M. I couldn’t find them online when I looked, so I convinced myself they were a special European strain of pants that only I had. Honestly though, I really love them. They’re super light and flowy, which makes them perfect for hot summer days when you have to look put together but also want to feel breezy.

In other news, the last time I wore these pants on the blog, they didn’t zip up all the way. Now they do. This is a great lesson in NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY (sorry, Marie Kondo).

AJ Wears :: A Fringed Blazer

When in doubt, wear all black. I'm not gonna play like I invented that, or that I read it somewhere and a lightbulb went off in my head. I see articles written constantly on the power of wearing all black, but there's more to it than just throwing on your best blacks.

Like, do they even match? The best way to solve that problem is to make sure that every piece is a different fabric. I combined whatever a suit jacket is made out of with whatever this blouse is made out of and whatever these leggings are put together with, and voila. BLACK MAGIC.
