Time to embrace that the skinny jeans aren't cool, j/k! I'm NOT ok with that, but I still want to be kind of cool so I ordered 15 pair of straight leg jeans to give a whirl. I spent entirely too much time on Nordstrom finding what I think are the perfect straight leg jeans. So here is a quick round of up my favorite straight leg jeans that will have a similar feel as our beloved skinny jeans.
Straight Leg Jeans
Sweater Round Up
Every fall I enjoy finding some new sweaters. This year I snagged a few more. I hate saying this but I am one that will buy something that is more considered "fast fashion" if I feel like the sweater is something that is going to be more trendy. So I did a little round up of 3 different type of styles that will take you through fall and winter. In other news hope everyone is doing well. The past few weeks haven't been my favorite so I decided yesterday it was time to put up some Christmas. My house is very confused one room is fall the next is Christmas! I usually wait till mid November but I feel like there are no rules this year. Read below about Monroe's little disaster of a fall Monroe had this week.
Nordstrom Sale Basics
This isn't your usual Anniversary Sale post. Normally it is cute dresses, jeans, sweaters, heels and some other fun items. But this year for me it is all about comfort. I think Nordstrom took that into consideration because alot of their items were athletic, lounge wear, sneakers, and my favorite... tons of bralettes! Here is my quick picks for the sale this year.
Green is my new Neutral
Green the forgotten color. Everyone looks so good in jewel tones specifically green. Over the past few years I've started wearing more green. But boy is green hard to find especially a good green. I prefer more a dark green cause I feel like this color looks good with all skin tones and hair colors. I took these photos was before covid when my hair and nails were done and 2020 had a bright future. How times quickly changed. Not that anyone is in the market for new clothes but I love this green and wanted to share with you. Here are a few of my favorite green items out there.
Swimsuit Round Up
That dreaded time of the year swimsuit season. It always takes so long to find the right suit for your body. I put together a big list of my favorite swimsuits from inexpensive amazon finds to more brand name suits. Swimsuits this season is most of them are already on sale due to corona so if you were wanting to get a new suit this is your year.
Work Your Little Heart Out-Fit
Let's talk workout gear. I did a instagram poll about what people are shopping for and it seemed like people were shopping for mostly workout clothes. Well that is good to know because that is all I am wearing. I feel so much better when I have a cute workout outfit on rather than some baggy sweats. So I rounded up all my favorites in each category. But first lets talk about this outfit. This bright outfit is from Fabletics. I started using Fabletics about a year ago. I like them for athleisure wear but they don't tend to be my favorites for actually working out. These neon shorts are so fun but are a touch see through so if I was at the gym that would bother me. But for running errands and working out at home I don't mind. Check out this outfit HERE!
Who would of thought Abercrombie would have such good stuff for a 30 year old Mom. I for some reason had ruled it out after all these years. I had bought some casual stuff a few years back but they were more sweatshirts or tank tops. But recently I really liked the look of their jeans and decided to try them. Do you guys remember how stiff and thick their jeans were? Well I must say they have evolved and fit like a glove! Everything I ordered from there I kept and shockingly they have amazing sales. I also snagged this cute suede skirt, I have less reasons to wear this but how could I pass it up with $35! Check out what I found!
Finally a little fashion post for you guys. I haven't really felt like doing anything fashion related as I have mostly been in casual clothes 99.9% of the time. But I have gotten to dress up a few times and I finally got a reason to wear this dress so I snapped a few photos before going out. I am in love with this maxi. It is by Jack by BB Dakota I believe it comes in a few different colors including black for those of you who are a little scared of color. But I am one who LOVES color especially in the summer so check out the rest of this post and more green dresses and 2 more of my favorite summer trends, one being spiked seltzer.
A Floral Dress
Just a little Spring floral for you guys. I am a big fan of the floral trend it kind of reminds me of something Drew Barrymore would of worn in 1999. I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing but that is the vibe I get from this dress. But as we know quite a few of the late 90's and early 2000's trends are back. Case in point, I wore a scrunchy to my hair appt the other day and then the rest of the day I wore the scrunch around my wrist and refused to take it off. It brought back serious middle school memories when I never left the house without a scrunchy and it HAD to match my outfit. I won't be adding Dr. Martens back into my wardrobe but I see they are making a strong comeback. Sorry I got sidetracked there but back to this post about the floral dress.....
Cropped Jeans And A Cute Baby
I did a poll a few weeks ago on instagram about different trends to try one of them was the cropped jean. It was about a 80/20 split on people saying I should give them a go. After ordering a few pair I realized to truly get the "cropped" look I had to order petite jeans. I am 5'5" and all the regular cropped jeans just look like ankle cut on me... so that is a hack if you are 5'5" and below order petite. But I'm here to give them a go. I didn't buy any that were too expensive I kept it under $100 in case this trend goes out the window by next Spring. Oh and don't mind Monroe in all the photos she wouldn't let me put her down.... biggest mamas girl EVER!
