A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi | Eyelet Blouse and 90s Jeans

I’m switching it up a bit from my usual jeans-and-a-tee look to a pretty blouse and jeans look! Not a radical change but I’ve been quite liking juxtaposing sweet and feminine elements with more masculine ones like this lovely blouse with the tough non-stretchy denim. This is such a great look for those days where you “have nothing to wear” - it’s simple, casual, but elevated, especially with the ruffle trim and comfy heels.

I discovered the brand JNSQ around this time last year and I really loved their mission! They’re all about helping women create a minimalist wardrobe with versatile and feminine pieces made to last. On their website, they state:
“As manufacturers, our pursuit is to produce less waste. We are starting with very limited production volumes, working with a fashion on-demand production model to ensure that customers' needs are met and that styles are not over-produced, minimizing waste or excess inventory that negatively impacts the environment.”
They’re also dedicated to fair labor conditions and wages for the garment workers. If that’s important to you (like it is to me), this is a brand you should definitely check out.
I got this blouse a while back and it almost seemed too pretty to wear! I really love the ruffle trim on the sleeves, the delicate eyelet material and the pretty pearl buttons. It’s really clear that they really went the extra mile when the created this blouse because all the details really elevate the piece and make it look a lot more expensive. Right now it’s on sale for $39 and since they only sell pieces in limited quantities, it’s best to get it sooner than later!

I said this in my last post wearing mom jeans, but I am seriously all about this silhouette right now! I love these jeans in particular by Everlane - not only are they super comfy, they’re very easy to move in, despite the non-stretch! I got these jeans when they first came out last winter. I got them in the cropped style, as I’m only 5’3” and I figured they’d fit me better. I like to roll the legs maybe once or twice to take advantage of the crop and it looks really summery that way. These jeans have a button fly, which isn’t my favorite, but definitely is on-brand with the vintage feel of the jeans. Like all of Everlane’s pieces, these jeans are made ethically and sustainably and Everlane denim in particularly uses significantly less water (it uses 98% recycled water that’s clean enough to drink!), 80% less CO2 emissions, and 85% air dried. These jeans were super popular when they first came out and I believe they’re still going strong!
