Welcome Home

H&M blouse and scarf, Asos Clutch, Gap belt, Express jeans, Steve Madden boots, Michael Kors watch, Giorgio Armani sunglasses, J.Crew, Gorjana, and Raine Studios bracelets



As I suspected, this bright yellow clutch made its way into my closet over the weekend and has already become one of my new favorites.  The enormous size, fun color, and gold accents make it exactly what I wanted and at $21, I couldn't pass it up.  I pulled these wide leg jeans out of the back of my closet recently and have been wearing them everywhere.  Although I haven't given up on skinny jeans, it's nice to mix it up and the wide legs always seem so much more comfortable to me.  Are you embracing wide leg denim?

Love this whole look, Valerie, especially the scarf and the gorgeous clutch. I've not ventured to wide-leg jeans, because I pretty much have wide legs anyway. Don't know how that whole 'balance' thing works!

I'm dying to pick up a good pair of wide leg jeans. Still love my skinnies, but love having options!

LOVE!!!!!!!! I've been on the hunt for a great oversized clutch and this one rocks! Might be a copy-cat with this one! ;)

LOVE the clutch Val! That punch of color is so much fun!
I am easing into the flare leg jean. I'm forever a skinny jean kind of girl but I am dusting off the flares and putting them into rotation :)

I remember when denim came in only one type, now the options are overwhelming! Remember jeans with pleats? When are they bringing those back?
