I saw this style often while I was in Paris. When I first saw the jean shirt on jean pants combo I thought, woah ew that looks straight out of the 90’s a la Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. The more I witnessed people rocking the trend though, the more I warmed up to it and realized there are a lot of fun ways to play with it. Unfortunately I didn’t capture any of my own photographs, but here are some cool ideas from my Pinterest board!
Along with leather pants, another fall trend that started last year, but is coming back in full swing is little booties! You can wear them with jeans or even a dress and they add a little something-something to your outfit. Here are some images to get you inspired as I am:
Don’t believe me that they add a little something-something? Here are some pictures I took in Paris last year before fashion week.

Meet my family friend Christine! Not only does she offer great life advice while basically being a model for my photoshoot, but she works at the boutique I’m highlighting today–Louella! Located in Wayne, PA, they just recently were awarded Best New Boutique on the Main Line. Sooo why wouldn’t you want to stop in and take a look around? They even have a fireplace in the store! The whole place is gorgeous just like the clothes they carry. This entire outfit is from there and was perfect for our night out at Paramour.
Leather was starting to make an appearance last year, but this fall and even end of summer (aka right now!!) leather is taking the forefront as the easiest and trendiest addition to one’s closet. Pants, skirts, shorts, tops, jackets–any and every article of clothing can take on this trend. Personally, I already have my leather pants, shorts and skirt, but I’m holding out for a nice black blazer with leather sleeves. Soo if anyone sees one let me know!
Here is a video from The New York Times street stylist, Bill Cunningham, explaining just how prominent leather is currently. Remember when I saw him in person in Paris?
Anyways look out for tomorrow’s boutique highlight featuring none other than some really chic…leather pants!! Woooop
Sweater | Urban Outfitters (similar) Skirt | Bikbok (I got this skirt in Copenhagen last fall, but here is a link to all their skirts currently!) Shoes | Some boutique in Paris but Urban has this pre-fall boot which is similar, or Topshop has these guys. Chelsea boots are definitely going to be big this fall so I’m sure they will be available at most of the major stores.
In being home with not much to do, the pool has been my first choice for summer activities. Unfortunately, the sun literally only decides to show its face on the weekends. My grandmother describes this time of year as the “dog days.” So in light of this overcast weather, I decided a nice cozy, fall outfit would be appropriate to match this weather.
1. Crop Top | American Apparel
2. Shorts | Topshop
3. Sandals | Urban Outfitters (not exactly the same but these are on sale!!)
Just wanted to highlight a great outfit from last night and share a picture of my besties to my viewers! Get ready for Monday’s post!
Even though it’s still August, I’m getting geared up for the fall and I’m alllll about printed pants. Whether on skinny jeans or a silky, flowly trouser, I can’t wait to try out this trend.
All these images are from Pinterest, but get ready for my own Fall anticipation tomorrow!
