Truth be told, as much as I love (LOVE) denim, finding the right jeans can be a bit of a challenge. I’m on the short side – 5’3″ to be exact – and most jeans are way too long on me. Normally, that would be fine, right? Just take them to a tailor to get them hemmed and problem solved. Well, so wrong. I’m somewhat lazy when it comes to those things, so I just end up cuffing them different ways and call it a day.
After cleaning one of my night dressers out recently, I found a gift card to Paige Denim that I had shockingly forgotten about. And that’s when I found my new favorite jeans. You guys: they’re an amazing fit (no cuffs!), are an amazing color with no distressing, and oh-so-comfortable. They’re made out of a special fabric that stretches, but not to the point of jeggings (bleh!). They still feel and act like regular denim. And there’s more: they guarantee that they won’t stretch out, another one of my pain points when it comes to jeans. So far, so good on this front – I’ve worn them a handful of times and they still fit like they did the first time I slipped into them.
PS: Yes, I get it. I can’t stop wearing this leather jacket. Sorry! It’s just perfect for San Francisco winters.

Black, white, leather, graphic t-shirt, high heels. Pretty much my favorite combination, especially during hectic weeks and on days that follow a sleepless night. One of my favorite parts of this outfit, however, is my new leather work tote. If you know me, you know I LOVE good leather – the smell, the texture, the construction. And this bag definitely does not disappoint. It’s big enough to fit my 13″ MacBook Air, my wallet, and a few other essentials, while still fitting comfortably strapped over my shoulder. I love it so much that I now have my eyes on the brown version – it would be perfect for a weekend trip to the farmer’s market!

I can’t stop wearing some sort of combination of all of these pieces this season. Let’s start with the shoes: I couldn’t get myself to get the designer version of these shoes so I was excited to find these from Zara for $50. They fit me perfectly, are comfortable enough for me to last all day (sounds funny, but I actually have trouble wearing flats and sneakers for a long time), and I love the strong black & white contrast.
The hat: I never, ever considered myself a hat person until this season. And now I want them all! They’re the perfect way to hide unruly hair and keep your head warm (at least for the winter we experience here in San Francisco). My next hat challenge will be rocking beanies – think I can do it?
