Chicago | Flared Jeans and Ruffled Shoulders


Zara Tank | AE Similar Flare Jeans | Target Similar Flare Jeans | Tortoise Sunglasses | Block Wedges

I’m excited to share this post today because the pictures were taken in one of my favorite places! The Riverwalk in Naperville, Illinois is the perfect place to visit, especially if you are trying to escape the crazy and chaos of Chicago. It is about an hour outside of the city, but definitely worth the trip. There are plenty of charming little shops and restaurants to go to along with a number of distinctive artistic constructions scattered throughout. The Riverwalk is an enchanting little town that is worth the visit if you are ever nearby or craving a new adventure!

When I visited the Riverwalk, I chose to wear a black ruffled shoulder Zara tank top that I found for less than $10! I love this tank because it is simple, but also has subtle ruffles on the shoulders that give the top some life. Ruffles and frills are extremely popular for summer, and this trend makes me so happy because it’s one that I have always loved! This frill shoulder tank comes in three different colors and is totally ideal for summer!

On the bottom, I decided to wear my favorite JCREW flare jeans that I purchased a few months ago from the JCREW factory store! I can’t find them online anymore, but there are plenty of alternative options online. I actually found a pair of vintage styled flare jeans from American Eagle online that I think are truly eccentric in a positive way! Also, to my surprise, Target actually has a shocking number of trendy flares online, one of them being this pair! Since flare jeans are in such high demand right now, it is a breeze to find a quality pair both in stores and online.

If there’s one piece I favor over my flare jeans, it is definitely my tortoise sunglasses from Nordstrom! These sunglasses are amazing and clearly go well with all types of outfits. In addition to being trendy, they are also practical in the sense that they actually do provide 100% UV protection. These sunnies are the epitome of style and practicality, especially for these radiant summer months!

My block wedges are the brand Chase and Chloe, and I found them on Amazon for less than $40! I purchased them in the taupe color, and although they turned out to be much lighter than pictured on the site, I still love them and wear them incessantly!

To conclude this outfit, I am sporting a bag and belt from Louis Vuitton, which are two of my favorite accessories because of the unparalleled quality and versatility… they seriously go with almost anything!!

Hope you love this outfit as much as I do! Let me know what you think. XOXO J

    1. Thanks so much! I have various people help me (usually family members) and I tend to try to help direct them for the angles/my vision for the pics etc!! 🙂 but they are awesome and do such a great job….I am so grateful!


      1. They and you work together very well! Don’t suppose you’d let me put one or two shots on my rotating Header Image file, for the summer? Only thing is—I’m unable to give credit for the photo on the Header itself—but can add a page to my blog with that information.
