Spring is in full swing and I am loving the longer days that will only get even sweeter once summer arrives. Prepping for beach days ahead I have been lusting over nautical style pieces, purchasing a few new ones for my collection. A great way to give such a classic style an update this season is with a great boyfriend jean. Originally I thought my petite frame could not pull off such a slouchy look and moreover some of you might think, as I did as well, that this denim style might be to "young". Yet as I discovered, with any jean trend, the boyfriend jean is all about finding the right fit and wash. Thus the lesson being here: Do not dismiss denim trends. Denim trends can take traditional pieces and give them a modern spin, giving you effortless style. I found my perfect pair of boyfriend jeans at LOFT, who has a awesome petite option perfect for my pint size. Paring them with a to-die-for vintage anchor sweater, from Kuzak's Closet, I took this ensemble for a spin with my heart-shaped sunnies in San Diego this past weekend.
