I’m partnering with Ralph Lauren to help share their Summer 2017 Lauren by Ralph Lauren line! I am so grateful to be working with a company that I have known and loved for so much of my life. I spent a day in various parts of NYC showing you how seamlessly this collection merged with my style and how well each piece worked for different times of day. In this post and the one I posted on Tuesday, I’ll be highlighting the Lauren Ralph Lauren Carrington Brigitte Tote, Premium Cropped Denim and Off the Shoulder Top. See how I styled each piece, shop the items and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
It's hard to pick, but this look has to be my favorite of the two I put together for this collab (see the other one here)! I love looks that work well for both daytime and nighttime purposes. All I had to do was unbutton a few buttons on the shirt and switch my sneakers to heels to transition this look!
Now, let's talk about these premier cropped skinny jeans. They are truly some of the most comfortable jeans I have now and sit perfectly at my waist. Let's be real, high waisted jeans aren't always the first pick,
but this pair sits just below where normal high waisted jeans sit making them super comfy! I'm a huge fan of the cropped look, so I love how these allow for a little ankle to show. Believe it or not, I think shortening the jeans a little actually lengthens your leg especially when worn with heels.
Drum roll please...the Carrington Brigitte Tote everyone. I can't get enough of it! This may look on the bigger side, but it fits so much inside and looks like a completely upgraded messenger bag when wearing like a crossbody. You can wear it short by just holding onto the handles or let it hang perfectly at your hips. I've had experiences where the long strap is way too long, but this one is just right! The bag is simple and carries that signature classic RL style so well.
Seeing as both the jeans and bag seemed so timeless, I made sure to complement these pieces with a simple/minimal blouse that had a modern twist. This oversized Aritzia blouse has bee a favorite of mine for about a year now and the oversized look feels so effortless and airy. I definitely recommend shopping both this Lauren by Ralph Lauren line as well as the minimal pieces at Aritzia!
