outfit: black mock turtle

black mock turtle


Have you ever met such a perfect pair of jeans that as soon as you try them on, you wonder how you’ve lived without them? Because damn if that’s not how the BDG twig jeans have me feeling.

I actually tried them on a year ago, and maybe I grabbed a different fit, but they just weren’t for me. I guess all the uphill biking to my new house has padded me in the right areas hah (I mean my butt guys, obv)!

Another how was I even living purchase I made recently was my camera remote. I could never take selfies unless I wanted to do that click-and-dash that self timer asked for, or I had to wait for my boyfriend. FREEDOM!

So far this fall this outfit has been my go-to staple, partially because I have to wear black all day for my job, and partially because the mock turtle neck and high waisted jeans make me feel sleeker. Plus, it’s easily modifiable: throw in a high pony to look even more put together, a flannel or oversized scarf to add a bit of grunge, or even a leather jacket to just look infinitely cooler, duh.

Do you have a pair of jeans you’re just dying over? What brand?!

I’m always on the lookout for more black skinnies!

    Love the black top, mostly because it can be re-worn a ton and definitely is a great “fall/winter essential”. But what I really am loving in this post is that drawstring bag. It’s adorable, and functional. Great post!

      I usually carry a bigger bag, but that one was too cute to pass up! and this h&m shirt is definitely one of my faves right now, and I’ll probably buy another haha! x

    I love BDG jeans! You look great in them! Extra padding and all! haha

      haha, thank you! I went out and bought a pair of non-black ones because I love the fit so much!

    Your handbag is the cutest! I’m loving how bucket bags are making a come back this season. I pulled mine out of the closet a few weeks ago and I’m so happy that I can finally put it to use.

      I actually bought this and another bucket bag at the same time! It’s so cute and quickly becoming one of my faves! x

      they’re definitely a fave of mine. I’m gonna be keeping an eye out for black friday/cyber monday sales in hope that I can snag another pair x

    I’ve been looking for boots like that, and can’t seem to find the right type! Love black, especially for colder months.

      I went back to look and the brand of the shoes seems to be OTBT? It’s embroidered weird on the heel of the boots, but maybe that’ll help! I got them at Buffalo Exchange. x
