Lately I’ve been drawn to gorgeous lightweight fabrics and whimsical prints, but when it comes to actually buying clothes, I tend to stick to the basics.  Maybe it’s the Midwest in me, but I’m definitely a jeans and t-shirt type of gal.  There’s nothing better than finding the perfect jeans and wearing them to pieces!

It’s no secret that this Spring the 70′s are re-introducing themselves.  We’re seeing fragments of the bohemian era almost everywhere in fashion, from full skirts and this seasons most sought-after trend: bell bottom jeans.

Hopefully with the new styles and silhouettes, denim shopping will get a little more exciting.

Like I said, I love my jeans, so I thought I’d give the bell bottom trend a try.  I’ve found a couple brands that I absolutely love.  GAP Vintage Flare denim (kinda a classic and very affordable), GAP also carries flare leg denim in darker washes.  And my absolute favorite pair of bell bottom-y jeans are the Earnest Sewn Lau denim.  These are a little more expensive, a little dressier and make your legs look long and lean (especially if you wear these jeans with heels).
