For me 'back to school shopping' always meant getting a great new pair of jeans to start out the fall in style. Denim trends have changed so much in my lifetime. I remember refusing to wear any jeans that weren't flared as a kid to only wearing low rise boot-cut as a teenager to swearing off any jeans that weren't black & super skinny. Now I love exploring new fits and shades to create different looks. For a long time I was sticking to black-only denim but recently I discovered the Levis's 711 Jeans in Stargaze. I love the light wash with the unexpected rip on the knee. The denim is heavyweight with a hint of stretch so it really holds you in and flatters (especially on the behind!) I paired the jeans with a lightweight baby blue button down and classic camel pumps for a breezy yet refined take on early fall. I highly recommend checking out a Levi's Store to get fitted in a pair of their 700 style jeans.
