fall music mix

As the seasons change, I always seem to get inspired to make a new compilation of songs I've been enjoying. Bands like Dead Man's Bones and Timbre Timber are quite eerie and atmospheric- perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit. I've also been loving the songs included by Jungle, Glass Animals and Sylan Esso which all are soothing yet hypnotic. Listening to music and going for walks in the park with a chai latte is my favorite thing to do this time of year.

the perfect jeans

For a while now I've been wanting to invest in a pair of nice jeans, but have been unsuccessful finding a pair worth the hefty price tag. However, when I first slide into the AG legging ankle jeans, I knew the search was over.

Since these are legging jeans, they are snug and hug everything in just the right place, but aren't too tight that they are uncomfortable. On the contrary, these jeans are incredible comfortable to wear. With other super slim jeans, I felt that not only were they too tight and uncomfortable, but were quite unflattering (hello muffin top). But with jeans, it's all about the fit and I feel like a million bucks in these. They are just so flattering, somehow making my legs look slender and my butt nice and perky;)
My mom also had to try them on when we were shopping together and they looked amazing on her as well.

The dark wash is a nice compromise of a dark blue with just enough fading and I loved them so much I got the lighter wash as well. Fellow short peeps out there will like this ankle fit, making these jeans perfect for pairing with both sandals and booties.

Jean shopping can overwhelming, so I thought I'd give me two cents on a pair out there that I am very happy with!
