TGIF, y'all!
 Maybe it's all the paperwork I've been doing this week, but I haven't been this excited for the weekend in a while. One of the biggest reasons I'm excited for the weekend is because today I'll be helping style some runway looks during my local fashion week - Fashion Week New Orleans

Speaking of styling, here is the first look in which I styled this necklace, these bracelets, and this ring by Porter Lyons.For this look I combined the sophistication of Rachel Zoe and her undying love of flared jeans with the polished beachy vibes of Tory Burch. There's just something so classic about a great pair of (flared or skinny) jeans. I had been trying to track down a flared pair like this for months now. All while doing my best to avoid pairs that appeared to have been used in That 70's Show. Thankfully Banana Republic came to the rescue. 

A tip when shopping for flared jeans like these is by first realizing that no, not everyone can wear them and the end of the day, the may not be your most flattering cut (but that doesn't you shouldn't experiment!) Second when choosing a fit, look for ones that are snug, dark washed, and hit the floor with a couple inches of fabric. The goal is for your legs to look long and you want to create a seamless line, which that extra fabric will give to you. Especially in heels. Lastly, make sure they fit closely around your knee. I know it sounds strange but trust me, it will help create the illusion of longer legs and give you a more streamline look.

I hope those tips were helpful and I hope y'all have a nice weekend!
