Block Heel Sandals Under $75 | Gold-Hatted Lover

If you’ve been reading for a while then you already know I am obsessed with James Jeans.  Honestly the only thing worse than jean shopping is bikini shopping – am I right or am I right?  After trying on my first pair of James Jeans, I was hooked.  The denim is thick but really stretchy, the pockets are actually engineered to make your butt look more lifted, and the mid-rise is really comfortable.

I follow James Jeans on Instagram – they have such a good feed! – and when I first saw that they launched this new style/wash combination they immediately became my most-wanted denim.  The lighter wash combined with the distressed style had me all heart eyes and once I noticed that they had a raw frayed hem it was game over.

Typically if you’re going to rock a trend, I’d say it’s best to stick to one trendy piece (in this case the raw hem) and mix it with other classics, but sometimes it’s fun to go all in.  Topping off the raw hem with an off-the-shoulder top, block heels, and silk scarf just felt right.  I feel like I should be on the Riviera walking down the dock towards my chartered yacht 😉

    So cute! You know I love the silk scarf and off the shoulder combo 🙂

    • Thanks Laura! This is the look I was talking about where we were unintentionally twinning! 🙂

    • You are way too kind – thanks love!! I was glad that it looked as good in real life as it did in my head haha! Hate when I imagine something being really cute and then put it on and it looks straight up fugly.
