I’ve partnered with Urban Outfitters on this post. All opinions are 100% my own, as per usual.
First things first: life update.
I don’t know what the hell is going on in the universe this week, but I have been SO inspired to cleanse, organize, & plan lately. Yes, I’m always in the mood for these three activities, but something about the last few days has been… different. More intense.
A few of my horoscope-happy friends alerted me to the appearance of the full moon a couple of days ago, which is apparently a big deal. I’m not one to put full faith in the universe in terms of explaining my feelings/aspirations, but something has been UP in the last week.
Granted, my reborn intensity for getting my life together comes on the heels of an almost-week-long 4th of July celebration extravaganza. So, it’s either the full moon or hitting rock-bottom that has inspired me to start living my best life.
And let me tell ya, I have been living my best life since last Thursday, when whatever force took over my mind & began to show me the way. RT if inspired.
Anyways, I’m headed to Colorado with my family this week, & I cannnnnot wait to see all the Sartain family characters/get a little R&R in Durango, CO. Also, I’m really looking forward to not spending any of my own money this week ( parents are great for that ), ja feel?
Moving on to today’s post: this sweeeeeet summer look in some of my favorite Urban Outfitters denim ( & other UO swag ).
Molly, Claire, & I had a roomie day at the Melrose Trading Post a couple of Sundays ago, & we shot this head-to-toe Urban Outfitters look while shopping for vintage/re-worked finds. It’s times like these that living with a photographer & another blogger really comes in handy.
Urban Outfitters is my absolute ride-or-die when it comes to affordable vintage-inspired denim. Currently, my top-pick denim brand they carry is BDG. BDG makes everything from unique, fashion-forward styles to sleek, perfect-fit skinnies. AND, BDG is ultra-affordable for your average gal ( which is so me, as explained by my excitement to mooch off of my parents this week ).
I’ll put a number of options in the slider down below for y’all, because I know y’all and I know y’all will dig all of these picks.
I seriously have at least 10 pairs of BDG jeans in my closet right now. No joke. The more the freakin’ merrier.

& shop what to pair with your denim
Can we just talk about how flawlessly perfect my photographer/roommate, Claire, is??? I mean, unreal talented. Thanks for making me look 1000x more cool than I am, as per usual.
Like I said before, we shot this look at the Melrose Trading Post, a flea market that happens every Sunday at Fairfax High School in West Hollywood. It’s one of my favorite ( daytime ) weekend activities.
I love grabbing a coconut or mint lemonade & browsing, visiting booths filled to the brim with thinning vintage tees, re-worked cut-offs, old books/records, DIY projects, & more.
If you’re new to LA or visiting, you HAVE to stop by the trading post one Sunday to check out the scene. PS: bring some cash, because you’re definitely going to find something worth buying!
That’s it for today, friends. Come along for my CO adventures on Instagram ( @paytonsartain ) & on Snapchat ( @payton_sartain ) if you aren’t following already.
