belle on a budget: the mosa boutique boyfriend jean

good morning babes!!  are you stuffed?  are you cyber shopped out??  pshhhhh ya, i hear ya.  i am so happy to finally be back to style posts, and my favorite kind of fashion . . . . on a budget!!  this week i've teamed up with Mosa, a fab newish 'tique on upper king, carrying a killer selection of both men's and women's clothing with that high/low mix that you know i love.  so, ok, seriously, i wanted to hang out and shop with these girls all day.  there's a lounge, there's fresh bevs, there's a dart board; next time i need to distract the hubs while i spend his money, you know where to find me!!  and, yea, it was really hard not to go a little nuts because i could've easily bought basically everything.  the vibe is cutting edge and chic and tailored and sexy and gooood, like reeeeeaaal good y'all.  very city, very sleek, ok you get it, i'm obsessed!!  so seeing as i'm a little too poochie to be pulling off anything structured at the moment, today's trend is all about my favorite loose fitting friend, the boyfriend jean!  regardless of the time of year, bfs are always a winner in my book, but especially after a week long feast of the gods, when the skinnies are fitting quite like they need too and that tummy needs a little room to breath.  so when it comes to fit, my moto is pretty much, "the baggier the better".  skinnies are meant to be tight, bfs are not.  they're comfy and broken in and they comfort you when you're feeling bad about yourself and all the pie that you've eaten.  hence the name, ladies!!  so, with the holidays upon us and much shopping left to do, i styled these guys to have you ready to hit the pavement and bang a few items off your list.  personally, i like to be stylish, but comfortable (i know, enough with the comfy already. i need to expand my vocabulary, im sorry.) when i'm running around all day.  you're in and out of stores, you're changing a lot, you're walking a lot . . . so for the aforementioned reasons, i layered on a loose tank and chunky sweater in the most perfectly soft hue of baby blue, it's almost the exact shade of mavie's eyes, which might be why i love it so, but also, pastels tend to be very flattering for all skin types.  and i don't know about you, but when i eat bad, it shows all over my face, so the last thing i want is to put some harsh tones against puffy/blotchy skin, right?  and its uber cozy (this is technically not the same as comfy, i'm expanding ;)) and speaking of cozy, omg, this jacket??  it's basically a blanket.  a blanket in the form of a seriously cool biker jacket, but still, blanket-esque.  ok, my last rule for shopping, is "hands free is key!"  always, ALWAYS carry a cross-body bag.  you need to be able to search and plunder and juggle a latte and an arm full of shopping bags, so you don't need to add your massive tote bag to the equation.  this is probably the only time i carry a small bag, because i tend to be an over-packer when it comes to my purse, but for shopping, you really only need your cell phone, keys and a credit card, so this little envelope bag did just the trick.  be sure to tune in to 2 Girls and a Guy this morning to hear more about this look and how you could win $50 gift card to spend at MOSA!!  love you guys for listening!!
