Warm weather, in my book, means easy outfit formulas that help me feel confident and full of life. My daily uniform year-round as a mom (who works from home) often includes jeans, or the occasional leggings, joggers or dresses.
So today, I’m coming at you with one of those easy outfit formulas I’ve been wearing since the weather started to warm up, featuring an amazing pair of flared jeans.
Quick note: I’m wearing boots in these photos because I was in Bogotá, Colombia, and while the weather gets warm during the day, it rains a lot, and it gets cold at night, so open-toe shoes are something I don’t wear much. I am now back in NY, rocking this same outfit with sandals.
A Modern Take On A Throwback: MOTHER Flare Jeans
We can all agree that routines are ideal for keeping your life running every day. Still, we also know that a break is needed to appreciate the routine and not find it…boring…lifeless? In a world of straight-leg, relaxed jeans, which I love, a pair of flared jeans adds an element of surprise, and this pair of MOTHER Super Cruiser jeans (light wash) have become just that. You can see a full review of them here.
So, on days I need an extra pick-me-up, I’ll reach for these flares and pair them with my regular tee or tank top, plus comfy sandals for my usual work-from-home day. It feels special and exciting.
Length note: I’m under 5’2,” and I had to chop a few inches off and leave the raw hem. They come with a nice sewn hem you’ll get to keep if you’re tall.
Easy Outfit Win: Retro Flare Jeans + A Must-Have Tank Top
This tank top resulted from a big failed online order — none of the colors I unboxed were right. So, I headed to do an in-store return hoping to see something in a color I loved. Standing at the register and quickly scanning the store, I saw it. Quickly, I grabbed it to see what it was, and after trying it on, I left the store completely satisfied.
I can’t stop wearing this Madewell tank top. Maybe it was the color or the fit…both? The fabric is substantial, the fit is excellent, and the color options are perfect for working with your specific complexion.
Finish off your outfit with your favorite jewelry and bag, and DONE. Jewelry is one of the ways I show pride in my roots and feel closer to my homeland, so I’ll usually go for at least one of those pieces.
