FHB Style: Baby Boyfriend Jeans

IMG_2068floppedlonging

The Boyfriend jean has always been a trend I just can’t pull off. First of all, what are boyfriend jeans? They are slouchy, slightly loose denim pants that appear as if you borrowed them from your boyfriend {or in my case, husband}. To wear them stylishly, you must pair them back to a fitted top to counterbalance the loose fit.

I have never been one to wear tight tops {except for when I am pregnant}, so I was bummed to throw in the towel when it came to the trend, that is until I saw they make boyfriend jeans for babies!! Unlike her mother, little Miss Reese can rock a tight tank over her adorable belly better than most. So I couldn’t be more excited when I found Old Navy railroad striped boyfriend jeans in her size and paired them  back to a fitted tank. I love that she is so comfy in them too!

And as if this look wasn’t trendy enough, I almost died when I found an oversized Military Green Cargo Vest at Old Navy to layer over top. {I actually went with their Canvas Utility Jacket for myself!}. Watch out trendsetters, this munchkin is on the loose!

How to throw a Wine and Cheese Party

How to throw a great wine and cheese party at homeChecklist for a wine and cheese party - Santa Margherita Wine

When it comes to throwing a fabulous wine and cheese party, the right ingredients make all of the difference. I host these gatherings weekly {especially now that it is easier to have people over due to the babies} so I have come up with a stellar list of essentials. Here are my four recommendations to throwing a successful evening:

1. Great wine. I am a lover of white wine especially in the summer time. My go-to is a mid-range priced bottle {about $25.00} and amazing quality, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. It is fresh, clean and crisp. Aside from pairing well with light pastas, seafood and chicken dishes, it’s incredible paired back to cheese.

2. Good quality {and fancy looking} crackers. I am a huge fan of Carr’s Crackers. They are light in flavor and texture which is exactly what is recommended to be paired back to a Pinot Grigio. {You don’t want a cheese or cracker that overpowers the wine.} Carr’s also has an assorted box, that I featured here, which I love because your guests can pick and choose their cracker depending on what they are craving.

3. Unique Cheese. I love to get fresh exotic well-aged cheeses from the professionals, so I make sure to head to the Cheese stands at the Union Square Farmers Market todo my choosing. For this spread I chose “Shepard’s Basket” a raw sheeps milk cheese, cave aged for 5+ months, similar to a Spain Manchego from an Organic Cheese Vendor.

4. A Personalized Touch. For this occasion I ordered Gold Foil Drink Tags that said “Cheers” and attached them to my wine glasses – Aren’t they so fun?! Picking something special to make each night unique can really make an evening sparkle; see another idea using custom straws in this FH post.
