The Darling Nomadess: Traveling Jeans

Traveling Jeans

Hello October! This is going to be an incredibly busy month for me as I prepare for my one-way trip to Rome, Italy in November! Yep, you read that right, darling! In 6 weeks, I'll be packing my life into a backpack and uprooting to Rome where I'll be an au pair. I'm so excited for this next chapter of my life to begin and also extremely nervous! I feel like this is kind of spontaneous as I don't have much time to plan every last detail of the trip. It's an exhilarating feeling!

While I've been working excessively to save up every last penny for the trip, days off can be relaxing and also hectic. During the day I try to get as much done as possible in regards to researching Europe, any travel paperwork, and of course, trying to keep up with this beloved blog (evenings are saved for time with friends and at the beach). With Cedar Point so close, why not stage some fun photo shoots with the coasters and rides as a backdrop?! Halloween is right around the corner so the park is decked out for the spooky holiday. Hopefully, I'll be able to show you ore of the scenery in the coming weeks! For now, here's the carousel and a coaster called the "Corkscrew."

Vest: BooHoo (sold out) // Tee: Old // Jeans: ℅ J.Leer Brand // Boots: Old // Scarf: Old // Necklace: Old

Speaking of my upcoming travels, these gorgeous jeans definitely made the packing list. They're comfortable, stylish, practical and functional. I am eternally grateful to J.Leer Brand for introducing me to their denim collection!

These jeans feature large pockets on the front of the thigh. These pockets are large enough to comfortably hold most phones (no #bendhazi here, iPhone 6 users!), though I use it to hold the key to my dorm room and work ID. I'm positive these jeans will be practical for my time in Europe. While the price is a little steep at $67 (they're on sale now for $49!!!!), they are a great investment as a quality denim. I know these babies won't be ripping or tearing too easily.

How do you style your basic tee and jeans?

With Love,

Linking up with Style Elixir!
