Faux Sure

I say Faux Sure when it comes to faux leather jeans. They are comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and are more affordable then the real ones. The Atlantic Pacific x Halogen ones I wore over the weekend are nearly sold out but these Mother Insider Crop’s (they also come in a skinny leg) are a great alternative. I wore mine with an Everlane cashmere tee (also love this pearl embellished one & Other Stories), Laura Lombardi necklace, H&M Blazer (also like this corduroy blazer & Other Stories), and leopard Loeffler Randall Sylvana heels.
