One reason I was so excited to do this week long collaboration with TOPSHOP was because I was super excited to get some help and input from their Personal Shoppers. For a limited time they’re offering a complementary personal shopping service call ‘The Jeanius‘.
Now, Full Disclosure: I don’t wear jeans all that often. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t allowed to wear them to school growing up, or maybe it’s because I prefer to be overdressed when in doubt, but either way jeans have never really found their permanent place in my wardrobe. Writing these posts made me realize a rule of thumb I seem to have, if I’m going somewhere that ripped jeans aren’t appropriate I tend to forgo jeans all together. For me, there’s just something about the look and feel of a ripped up pair of boyfriend jeans that feels as American as baseball and apple pie. It’s definitely not a look for every occasion, or most occasions for that matter, but there’s nothing I’d rather run around town in than a pair of slouchy ripped jeans.
