MCLV Style: Casual Fashion

Stripes are the perfect Spring and Summer daytime look – They go with everything and are easy to spice up to make a nighttime look. Here I paired a basic striped top with cuffed, slim-fitting jeans, and animal print accessories to make it a bit more interesting.

Despite normally being a dress girl I’ve been living in these jeans on weekends lately – So comfortable and so flattering. They look great with heels as well as flats, and I really like the dark wash which hasn’t faded at all.

What’s your favorite brand of jeans? Why are they your favorite?

  3. This is my kind of look! I’m just so busy usually that casual is the style of the day. I love stripes and jeans together. Can’t say I have a favorite pair of jeans though. ^^

  4. I love those shoes and can’t get enough of stripes. I think every girl should own at least one piece. Can’t wait to see you!!


  5. lovely post hun, hmm stripes are not good for my shape… mummy tummy hehe

    although you look lovely in them 🙂

    • You could always try a striped accessory instead if you like stripes – A scarf, hat, belt, bag… 🙂 There are lots of choices out there!

  6. I love these jeans! I might have to order, do they fit true to size? I have a pair of jbrand jeans that I feel are slightly snugger than my other denim.

    • Yes, they’re true to size. I ordered them online & LOVE their fit. They’re a little snugger post-wash, but that’s pretty standard.

  7. I’m a fan of stripes too! And I really like the combination of stripes and leopard. You definitely look hot, babe.;)

  8. love your striped top!

  9. Sending you my address now so you can ship me those heels, top and purse 😉

  18. My favorite jean brand is a tie between J.Brand and Mother Denim. J.Brand fits my larger bootie with perfection and Mother is the most comfortable and chic denim you can buy. Seriously, I wish I had more than 2 pairs, but they are $$$$.

    This whole looks is adorable. I live for leopard and stripes, so this looks was perfection.
