The Basics

Zara Blazer, Club Monaco Shirt, Hudson Jeans c/o (on sale!), BaubleBar Cuff, Valentino Heels (also available in flat version and kitten heel), , Alice + Olivia Bag c/o, Ray Ban Sunglasses

Four staples that will always remain in my closet are: A tailored blazer, crisp white shirt, the perfect distressed jeans and a pair of black pumps. I also picked up the matching pants to this blazer and plan on wearing them together this fall!

My girlfriend Dallas and I have both styled these Hudson Nico jeans (see below and check out her post here) and are teaming up for a giveaway to win either the Nico jeans or a pair of distressed denim. How to enter? Follow Hudson Jeans, Dallas and myself on Instagram and leave a note letting us know you followed! Two winners will be selected by Hudson- one from Dallas’s blog and one from GMG. The contest runs through August 12. Good luck!

Embellished Bobby Pins (on sale!)

I’m always suckered into buying the sparkly, bejeweled accessories that are always strategically placed next to checkout lines. I don’t think I’ve ever shopped in an Anthropologie where I didn’t end up buying some bits and bobs. And while I have enough of these little accessories to start a store of my own, I rarely actually wear them. So this time I was determined to find creative ways to incorporate them into my everyday hairstyles. The best part is that these specific ones work on thick hair too, which is usually the problem for me. Here are some of my favorite embellished bobby pins (also would be a great DIY) so you can re-create some of these looks…or come up with your own style!
