Every once in a while, I’ll look down and realize, I got it at Crossroads – almost head to toe! This was one of those days. I grabbed my Everlane, striped tee – which is extra thick & just feels QUALITY, ya know? And then these jeans are Frame, which I always look for at Crossroads; a luxury denim that just NAILS the fit & feels like pajamas. My flats are J.Crew and give me an effortless pop of color when I need it. And on top, we have my Zara cat-eye sunnies giving me life.
And just like that, without even trying, it’s Crossroads head to toe. Do you ever look down and realize, omg, I’m head to toe luxury FASHUN on a budget!?
It’s the busiest travel season of the year and the last thing we need to worry about is what we will be wearing when we fly or drive for hours upon hours. Comfort is key, but comfort doesn’t always have to mean sloppy sweats or old pajamas. Put just a little bit of effort in your travel wear and focus on those “in-between” pieces of clothing; clothing that can be comfortable and chic.
There’s nothing that makes a bit more formal look work for day and, quite literally running around town, like sneakers. Converse are a classic that just keep on giving. White high-top chucks are a low-cost investment; I highly encourage everyone to jump on. They are perfect with basically everything – in the summer with cut-offs (I refuse to use “jorts” – I mean, what is that!?), with cropped pants, and of course, with a fun dress.
I’m a Converse-for-life kind of girl. Are you into the sneakers and a dress look? What’s your go-to sneaker?
In the end, what’s cooler than jeans and a white tee? Somehow, I always end up craving a super, simple look made a little more feminine or detailed. This See by Chloe embellished tee shirt checked that box for me. It’s comfy. Check. It’s got sleeve power. Double Check. And for me, that makes it just about perfect.
What’s the basique (it’s like “basic” but fashion) item you’re loving?
The blogging industry has evolved so much since the beginning days of posting outfit photos on WordPress or Blogger. Bloggers have established brands, created extended business lines and products, and created a platform for fashion lovers to have access to unlimited content.
The newest avenue that style and fashion bloggers are taking over is YouTube! Style vloggers are quickly gaining traction and we are seeing more and more of our favorite traditional bloggers creating video content using YouTube or Instagram. I have noticed myself focusing more on video content from my favorite style bloggers. I love being able to “go shopping” with someone whose style I admire, see the clothing and products in a more three dimensional way with movement and detail, and getting to know these girls on a more personal level.
Check out 5 of my favorite style bloggers that you should be following!
Beth Jones, B. Jones Style
How could I have a list of my favorite style vloggers without including our very own Crossroads Style Council member, Beth! Beth is one of the very first bloggers that I fell in love with and have followed since. She’s transformed her brand from a style blog to fashion and lifestyle vlog and films thrift challenges, weekly outfit videos, and style tips.

Kia Marie, TheNotoriousKIA
Kia is one of my newest finds, and I don’t know how I didn’t discover her sooner! She describes her style as “a blend of the grittiness of New York City and the carefreeness of southern California”. She posts impressive thrift hauls, video lookbooks, and “how to style” tutorials.
