When I saw these vintage-style Level 99 jeans at Stripe in Santa Cruz, I instantly fell for them. I usually prefer dark denim, but this stylish pair caught my eye. While it's a "tomboy fit," on me (since I'm more curvy) they look more like regular jeans, which is great—it shows that all body types can wear this style.

I knew these eye-catching jeans would shine with my new clog booties from Swedish Hasbeens. And when paired with stripes and a vintage blazer and scarf, it would create a winning fall look. If the sun happens to swing by, I can easily take off the scarf and jacket. And when the clouds roll in, I'll be toasty.

I'll be on stand-by to bring out my grey boots for the grey days this season.
