Hi friends! My name is Alex and I am a Nashville based lifestyle blogger and creative over at Authentically Alex. I am so excited to be partnering with Molly Green and sharing some of my favorite pieces with y’all.
Anyone who follows along on my feed knows that I like to think I was born in the wrong era and was destined to wear bandanas and bell bottoms. So when I stumbled across Molly Green, I instantly fell in love. Wide-legged jeans, ringer tees, and bowler shirts? Molly Green is what all my 1970s clothing dreams are made of. I love how Molly Green mixes staples and trendy pieces and all at an incredibly affordable price point. Browsing the website and their Instagram feed (which is total #goals), I immediately fell in love with two pieces: the Alma Jeans and the Greer top. From the moment I saw them, I knew they were going to be on major repeat this spring.
First up are these amaaazing jeans! At 5’2”, I always struggle to find denim that fits right off the rack and doesn’t need to be hemmed. These culottes are the perfect full length jean on me, but would also make for an adorable cropped look on all you taller ladies. Can we all just go ahead and agree that high-waisted denim will forever be trendy? I love how the cut of these jeans gives the illusion of a much longer leg. I chose to fully embrace the 70s vibes these jeans were giving me, and pair them with a ringer tee, bandana, platform sandals, and the Inline Sunnies.
I love pairing wider jeans with more fitted tops, so this ringer tee was the perfect option! I opted to fully tuck in my tee to show off the high-waisted fit of the denim and create a more casual, weekend vibe. But for a slightly elevated look, these jeans would be amazing with a half-tucked button down and nude heels – casual Friday, anyone?
My other new closet staple from Molly Green is the Greer top. The cropped cut of this blouse makes it the perfect piece to pair with high-waisted denim and skirts. Here I go with the high-waisted trend again – I told y’all I love it! I chose to go for an all-black outfit with a pop of denim. Pairing this top with black, skinny jeans made for the perfect casual look for a day around Nashville.
I love how a versatile piece like this could also be easily dressed up for a girls’ night or date. The silky fabric and flowy cut of this top would pair well with dark washed flare jeans or a colorful skirt. You could even undo one more button and wear a lacy bralette for a sassy, flirty look.
I am excited to keep wearing these pieces and finding new ways to rock them all year long. Molly Green’s pieces are so versatile and I am looking forward to styling these pieces year round.
