I finally got my hands on a black blazer. Can you believe that I didn't have a black blazer in my closet? Not a real one anyways. I got one from ZARA a couple years ago that was more like a cardigan. I needed something with a little more structure. Something that worked casually and for business. This was just the thing. As a short girl, when I wear skinny jeans I cuff them to hit me right at my ankle. It really changes the look - for the better - when I do this. If you're not a fan of cuffing (it took me a while to get into it myself), then feel free to take your jeans to the tailor or a seamstress and have them hem it accordingly. Right at the ankle makes you look leaner and taller.

It's funny, because throughout my blogging career I always tried so hard to look so cool and like the top blogging girls who travel all over the world to wear amazing clothes. In my mind, I had made them the standard. But the truth is, I'm just an everyday girl who works really hard, wears affordable clothes and lives in Atlanta. And Hubs & Babyologie are my standard. If I had to do this all over again, I wouldn't have it any other way.
