3 Weeks in a Carry-On (with International Travel)

I still felt like I had so many options and that I always had the right thing to wear.

It’s taken me a while to come around on straight leg jeans, but I finally found my perfect pair and I’m hooked! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of skinny jeans and those have been my staple denim style for years now. But there’s something about a high rise straight leg jean that feels fresh, modern and cool. Today I’m sharing 9 ways to style them. Some of these looks are for fall and some are for summer, all of them are simple and chic.

For quick reference, here are the links to my exact pair of jeans in regular, tall and petite lengths (I recommend going down at least one size!), as well as some similar options to achieve the looks if you don’t have your perfect pair of straight leg jeans yet:
