You know the one (minor) thing I was most worried about when moving to Colorado? The trees. I was afraid it wouldn’t be very green or tree filled because of the elevation! I’m so glad I was wrong! This is one of my favorite tree-lined streets I’ve discovered in Colorado. I made Spencer (my husband) jump out of the car and take pictures of me in the middle of the road because I’m a sucker for some green trees. Aren’t they beautiful?
Enough tree-nerd stuff, let’s talk about this outfit! I got this look (top, jeans, and hat) for $45. Part of that is due to the fact that I had a coupon from Target’s Cartwheel app for like 5%-20% off (not a math girl, don’t ask me specifics) but before the coupon it was still only $57!! JEANS. I got trendy jean culottes for $30! THIRTY DOLLARS, people. And they are cute! They aren’t the crappy kind of $30 jean that you regret buying because they stretch out and lose all hope of a figure flattering form when you wear them once.
When I bought the jeans, I had a weekend style outfit in my mind. I wanted something that was easy, clean, but still unique. Enter white shirt with tie and hat. The shirt was under $20 and the hat was under $15, I couldn’t say no! This hat is the perfect mix of unique and casual. I love the black ribbon band and the straw color! It’s super classic and can go with any outfit in the summer. The shirt is another great staple piece. I always want to wear a plain white t-shirt but I have so much trouble finding one that flatters me. It either clings where I don’t want it to cling or it’s too boxy, but this shirt was different. The material is super light, but not so light that you need to wear something under it (which is the worst sometimes, especially when it’s hot). The tie hits at a great spot that fully covers your midriff, without being too long. Obviously, I can’t say enough good things about these finds. Target and I had a major win this day when I found all these items in one trip!
A note on hats: Does anyone else struggle with whether they like fedoras or not? I love them on other people, but I can’t fully commit to them for myself.
Jean Culottes (CURRENTLY ON CLEARANCE FOR $8.98 HOLY COW)
White Shirt with Tie (ALSO ON CLEARANCE FOR $10.48)
Shoes (They are a few years old from Gap, but I linked a similar style from old navy)
I hope this look inspires you this week + weekend!
