Half of these photos are shot on 35mm film, the others on iPhone. All of them are shot by my Mother, in front of a sheet in my parents backyard, during my post New York, pre-Berlin fourteen day quarantine. I love them mostly cause they were shot by my Mum, but also as they capture what was another intersection of my life.
But let’s move onto the jeans. “Faded blue and white vertical stripes recall summers spent in the French riviera” a description so inspiring I’m craving rosé even while writing this at 10am on a Tuesday.
Aside from the romantic appeal, I cannot stress how much I love the fit of these. The straight leg, falling somewhere between a cigarette pant and a wide leg, actually thins and lengthens your silhouette – a claim made by many but delivered by few. The material has stretch without sag and the high rise hits you right at the belly button, which in my humble opinion is where all jeans should fall. It just feels right.

I’m into the Cargo pant trend at the moment for two big reasons:
The relaxed fit. Anything I can comfortably wear all day is always high on rotation for me. I’m also into a loose relaxed fit on the bottom paired with more of a tailored or tight fitting top to balance the two styles against each other.
The androgynous tone of a cargo pant. A tom-boy at heart you guys know I love anything uni-sex or with a masculine undertone.
To help you shop the trend I’ve pulled together a range of affordable options that I think really hit the mark!
I’ve also linked a few white crop tops to complete this look.
Wherever I find myself in the world I usually end up declaring that I’ll be moving there, I’m so easily infatuated by places and cultures, I’m like that girl in middle school who doodles boy’s names in her notebook, except I’m doodling cities.
Paris is truly magic though. It’s one of the few places where everyone has style, every corner is a post card, and everyone somehow manages to maintain the complexion of a twelve year old while chain smoking cigarettes and sinking glasses of red.
I spent four days in the city this time. We stayed in Le Marais, one of the oldest parts of Paris and home to the cutest cafes, cutest boutique shopping and cutest boys. There were quite a few plant based options for food as well – Hank Pizza & Wild And The Moon are both on Rue des Gravilliers and both worth checking out… though I still inhaled baguette with brie, because when in France…
A girlfriend of mine recently told me she’s given up wearing thongs for good which not only deepened my respect for her but directly resulted in a feng shui attack on my own underwear drawer. Obviously there is a time and place for certain styles, but day to day I’m on her same page – comfort FTW.
Fortunately for us, we live in a time where comfortable underwear is not synonymous with parachute pants. Where cute cotton briefs are actually cute and wire-free bras are not just for sport. We’re in an era of active wear being worn to nightclubs, so why on earth would one subject themselves to anything less when it comes to their underwear? As Hanessays, “Comydence starts from the inside out – literally.”
In continuing my partnership with Hanes, we’re again focusing on more of their pieces that start your day off right, are made to live in and that make a difference in how you feel.
