Hope you guys had a fabulous Easter! Guess what? Matt's finally home! He arrived on Wednesday night, and I've been on cloud nine ever since. It's fun to have him back. I feel like every little thing is an adventure with him. Matt and I have been very different in terms of reculturization, though (did I just make that term up?). For example, when I came back to the US, all I wanted to do was eat all the American foods I missed in Japan. Matt is basically the complete opposite - he misses Japanese food instead. Hm. We did have our fair share of American-style pizza though. YUM. 

I got these BDG jeans at Urban a few weeks ago (my brand of choice for pants and denim and such). I'm getting used to the high-waisted aka 'mom' fit on these, but for the most part I find them much more comfortable than normal-waisted (?) jeans. Oh, and did you check out my bag? Madewell just opened at Scottsdale Fashion Square - and let me tell you - it is beautiful. So many bright colors everywhere! This bag was a special edition for its grand opening - it has really fun Arizona facts on it, which I love. (But yes, I actually did know that Arizona's official neckwear is the bolo tie...) 

Now that Matt's back, stay tuned for way more consistent blogging!

  7. Ouu I love the high waisted jeans on you! I just find high waisted jeans way more comfortable in that I don't always feel like my behind's about to make a surprise appearance every time I lean over!
    That flower is lovely too, such a nice touch!

    You must be stoked Matt's back, looking forward to reading more from you now! :)

  20. Love these jeans! I have been looking for some high-waited ones but haven't looked at UO yet. My boyfriend and I were long-distance while he was away in school, so I can definitely relate; I remember the weeks he was home were so joyful and fun. And even now, it doesn't feel like he's actually home for good :)

  21. Yay for the hubby's return, and celebratory pizza. :)
    Such a fun and minimal way to mix stripes and florals!

  22. I wanted to buy those jeans, but was a little wary of the price and wanted more feedback. Do they fit true to size? And how soft/stretchy are they? Cute outfit! - Leah

  28. I found your blog the other day and about died of happiness (all creepiness aside).  Your blog is so cute and I love your style!  Those high wasted jeans and the floral platforms are amazing.  So lovely.

  30. Oh, I've been buying BDG jeans for the past few years! They fit perfectly on my body type and since I'm petite, their Ankle Grazer style is the perfect length for me. I find that they fit true to size, and they're super comfortable. They're somewhat stretchy, I mean they're super skinny so they have at least a little give so I can do all my retail tasks that involve bending my knees and such, haha. I honestly haven't been able to find a pair of jeans that fit me so well, but that may be just my body. Hope that answers your questions!
