Torn up with Tommy


Yes, I am sure you have seen this top all over Instagram, Pinterest and everywhere in-between. I wanted to do my own take on the look. I paired the Tommy Jeans T with a pair of slim-boyfriends from Levi's (that I actually got for a steal on Haute Look!). I traded in my old Vans, the ones that you may remember from my last outfit post, for some clean and crisp white ones. Lastly, I tied the entire look together with a worn in and laid back belt... giving the look a hint of trend.

The look was shot with the incredibly talented Pictures from Mars. You can follow her on Instagram @pictures.from.mars. I am incredibly blessed to have made friends all over the country, and have kept in contact with them since. I am planning on starting a series called Tip Tuesday where I talk about tips and advice about topics like "How to keep a long distance friendship alive" and "How to travel on a college student budget". What do y'all think? I want to create The more you Merlot into a blog not just for looks but also a place to talk about real life advice, good places to grab some grub and sharing my travel adventures with everyone who reads my page.

I have had a lot of love and growth for the short time that this blog has been live! I am so incredibly happy that I will be able to grow The more you Merlot organically and with the help of everyone who is involved and active with my posts. Thank you thank you!!


Click on each of the items below to find a link to the exact item or a very similar one.

  • I purchased the jeans off a Levi's flash sale on HauteLook. I found a similar pair here.

  • The T is from Urban Outfitters. Although I normally wear a small, I got a medium for a looser fit.

  • The Girlfriend Belt from Urban Outfitters.

  • My Vans are from Nordstrom. They come in multiple colors & patterns but I stuck with the classic white.

  • My sunglasses are Ray-Ban that were also purchased off Nordstrom. Here is a similar pair (along with a variety off the Nordstrom website).

TIP: HauteLook is a great website to use if you are trying to purchase a certain brand, on a discount. How the website works is a couple different brands are featured on certain days, for certain times. The buyer only has a couple of days, hours, or minutes to purchase the items depending on the popularity of the brand. I actually picked up the Levi's in this post off of a HauteLook sale (for aorund $40!). Talk about a steal!
