Meet Jacy:
“Hi guys! I’m Jacy Overstreet, blogger behind Love, Lenore (my middle name, passed down through my family). I live in Missouri with my hubby and two rescue dogs, and my blog is all about everyday chic style that’s attainable for real life and real budgets. During the week I work in education PR where I have to dress up, so outside of work I love casual, laid-back pieces that allow me to show off my style in comfort!”

What Inspired Jacy’s Look:
“I don’t know if there’s a more iconic summer clothing item than high-rise denim shorts! They’re the epitome of classic summer cool, and can take you from the beach to a family BBQ and anywhere in between. The Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie is made with soft denim with lots of stretch for a really comfortable and flattering fit that I was so impressed with. For this look I went back to some tried and true classics to create an easy go-to summer outfit. Stripes are always a summer favorite of mine because you can mix and match them with so much, so I went with a comfortable striped tee that feels both effortless and timeless when paired with denim shorts. To top off my look I added one of my very favorite accessories – a classic straw hat – and then tied everything together with strappy sandals and a cross-body bag.”

When it comes to soft, boho inspired layers, the Soft Pant should always be your first go-to. Made for summer, this lightweight, ultra comfortable pant pairs perfectly with your favorite tanks.

Boho beauty Olia from Love, Olia styles her favorite Wide Leg Soft Pant, proving that a bold paisley print is always a good idea.

What Inspired Olia’s Look:
“Being from San Diego, my looks are typically geared towards So-Cal effortless looks which is why I LOVED this AEO wide leg pant so much. It’s the perfect pant for Spring/Summer and I wanted to show off a boho inspired look which could easily transition to vacation wear as well. A pant like this speaks for itself which is why I chose a simple white top to go with it as to not distract from the pant. I finished the look with an easy straw hat to add that extra bit of summer elegance.”

How to Wear the Jegging Crop with Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes

Summer is nearly upon us and it’s so close to shorts weather we can taste it. Before you break out the shorties, take a moment to appreciate all that is the Hi-Rise Jegging Crop.

Ashley from Polka Dots and Sailor Stripes shows us she wears her favorite style of Hi-Rise Jegging Crop below. Its legging-like fit, destroyed details and release hem make this jegging crop truly one of a kind.

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Jegging Crop with Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes

What Inspired Ashley’s Look:
“The truth behind Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes is that when I am not shooting or going anywhere special, I tend to opt for comfort. Generally, to me comfort means my favorite denim, whether it be shorts or pants…and a comfy t-shirt. This pair of denim is the newest addition into my closet, and I cannot believe how comfortable they are. Back in the day I was an avid American Eagle denim junky. It wasn’t until recently that I actually explored back into the store only to find out they have amazing black distressed cutoffs like these ones, and some of the best boyfriend jeans on the market. This particular cut is taking me way back to when the best of both worlds was found in my favorite pair of capris.”

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Jegging Crop with Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes

“The nice thing about these pants are the rips – they’re more distressed than most of the pants I own, but the patches behind the rips allow me to still feel 100% comfortable in them. I also love the ‘release hem,’ which adds a bit more interest with the distressed, uneven coloring.”
