Check Mate

Hey guys! I just realized that it’s been awhile since I’ve done an outfit post on here. So this post is timely…I got this black and white check top from Joe Fresh last year when they first released shipping to the U.S. If you’ve never heard of or tried Joe Fresh before, you definitely should check them out. They are a Canadian clothing company that sells quality basics at a reasonable price. And when they have sales it’s a great time to stock up! #youllthankmelater 🙂

Lately, I’ve been gravitating towards more basics and neutrals. It seriously makes it so much easier to get dressed in the morning and I’ve learned that I’m more comfortable in them too.

Speaking of comfort, enter, these jeans, a new addition to my closet. To be honest, they are a little more than I normally spend on jeans (and yes, Dad, I bought them with the holes in them!) but I was in need of new boyfriend jeans and I’d been lusting after these for a long time. So I had already been saving for them!  I bought them right before I went to Nashville a couple weeks ago and pretty much haven’t worn any other jeans since. #truestory I love it when you find something that it so comfortable and exactly how you hoped it would be, that you keep wearing it all the time! It definitely makes the cost per wear go waay down! Do you have any clothes like that?

Do you have any clothes like that?

Any plans this weekend? If you saw my Instagram this week, you saw that I have a big trip at the beginning of next month that I’m already starting to pack for! I’m so excited to share with you guys where I’m going, but you’re going to have to come back to find out! 😉

Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for reading!

xoxo, Hillary
