Mom Jeans are back

Mom jeans are the coolest way to wear denim this summer. You know, jeans that could easily have been plucked from your mother's collection of retro cast-offs, and that can make you look like you've stepped straight out of an early episode of Friends (hail Rachel Green, the original denim pioneer).

Along with the return of the choker (addicted? me?), the bodysuit, and the denim jacket, this huge denim trend is all part of the nineties fashion comeback. Mom jeans are high-waisted, distressed and cut in a comfy, easy fit. Don't confuse them with boyfriend jeans though; they are both distressed and have a loose fit, but the difference is in the mom jeans' waistline, that sits a lot higher.

If you've been following me on Instagram and seen my pictures lately, you've probably noticed that I'm a huge nineties fashion girl. I LOVE choker necklaces (in Laurens' words: how many chokers can you have?), I've been stocking bodysuits that will last me for at least 10 years and I'm obsessed with matte lips right now. So it was only a matter of time before I adopted this new denim trend!

I wore this gorgeous pair of mom jeans by Citizens of Humanity on a casual stroll with the hubby on Melrose Place, one of my favorite shopping streets in LA. I paired them with two other pieces from my nineties obsession, a cool bodysuit by Privacy Please and a choker. As you've seen in my previous posts, these Chloé wedges are my stylish but comfy go-to.

You've probably seen me obsessing over these Marc Jacobs sunnies on Instagram this week, and I can tell you right now, you're going to hate me for spamming you guys wearing these. This cutting-edge silhouette is simply stunning, and the mix between a round frame and a cat eye frame is perfection. The shades are embellished with shiny studs, which give these bad boys that extra sparkle.

Keep love close to you... Literally. I love my new personalized bar bracelet that has my hubby's name on it. It's so pretty and delicate, and makes the perfect everyday arm candy!

I got thirsty from all this camera action, so I had a refreshing peach iced tea at Alfred Tea Room. This place is so cute and has the best homemade matcha green tea and iced tea I've ever tried!
