While doing some online shopping this week, I noticed so many great pieces on sale. Obviously, when I see a great sale I have to share it here and let you all in on the good stuff. First and foremost, I want to talk about the items I actually own. My favorite black AG jeans are on sale, although there’s only a couple sizes left. These jeans are my absolute favorites with the perfect amount of stretch and distressing. Another pair of my go-to jeans, the Woodfords from Rag & Bone. These are your ideal dark wash denim. You will love them! I know you probably are not thinking about your summer wardrobe anymore, but my beloved One Teaspoon shorts are on sale. These rarely go on sale, so if you’ve been lusting over them all year, jump on them now. These AG boyfriend jeans are slightly different from the ones I own (the distressing is different), but they’re in the same wash. If you’re closet is missing a pair of light wash denim, these are my favorite!
Other notables include this Free People plaid shirt. I love the funky hem and little details. And how awesome are these lace-up pumps? They’re available in both black and nude. Lastly, if you need to get yourself some Hunter’s for the up coming season, now’s your chance to get them 25% off.
Happy Friday, friends! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I’ve still been in transition mode here in the Bay Area as it’s been quite warm. Up until yesterday, I didn’t think we’d see cooler weather until mid October. But the fall gods have come down and this week has been all kinds of amazing. Overcast until the afternoon, a crips chill on my morning walks with Lola, sweatshirts inside, things are looking up for us, people!
In outfit related news, this trench coat was purchased at the same time as my beloved black one earlier this year. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to wear it on the blog, but here it finally is. Sadly it has since sold out, but I found a very similar one I’ve linked to above and more below. I’ve also been really loving white pumps. You’d think I’d get the most use out of them during the summer, but nope, I don’t mind them in my fall rotation one bit. I’m sure once my tan disappears, I’ll probably hang them up. If any of you are looking for some budget friendly white pumps, the ones I’m wearing are on sale and the Charles by Charles David pact pumps are great too (I have them in beige).
Now that we’ve taken care of the fall essentials, let’s talk about fall trends. I don’t normally dedicate a full post to trendy pieces, but this seasons it-items are absolutely doable and work well in a neutral lover’s wardrobe.
F L A R E S - I’m not sure how I feel about this trend for myself, but I’ve seen it on a couple of bloggers and I will say, flares have made a comeback in the best possible way. It’s like when you go to your high school reunion as a better version of yourself. I don’t even remember how they were styled back in the 70’s and then the 90’s, but they’ve never looked better. For those of you over the whole skinny jeans thing, I would say give these a try. They’re slimming and elongating. That’s an all around win in my book.
M A R S A L A / W I N E / B U R G U N D Y - Because of it’s dark hue, marsala can be an easy trend to adopt. It’s like an alternative to navy or black. If you’re hesitant to incorporate the color into your fall wardrobe, ease into it by opting for a burgundy lip or a fun accessory like a handbag.
B U T T O N – F R O N T S K I R T - I finally got my hands on a button-front skirt and I’m even more obsessed than before. I recently styled this Forever 21 denim version with flats (here) and I’m happy to report, the flared mini skirt works on petites (yay!). One of the reasons why I’m drawn to this skirt trend is it’s versatility. It can be worn with flats, heels, or boots and can be dressed up or down. I can’t wait to get myself a suede version!
F R I N G E - I was hesitant about the whole fringe craze, but it’s definitely grown on me. I recently purchased this skirt and I can’t wait to wear it! I think with basic and neutrals, I can tone down the trendy aspect of fringe. If you’re still feeling iffy about the trend, try working it into your wardrobe with shoes. I love these booties and these heels.
L A C E – U P F L A T S - We all know I’m a fan of these. I had high hopes for this pair I ordered last week, but sadly they went back because the quality was just not there. I did snag this pair from Zara (I stocked the website for weeks for a size 5) and they’re perfection! Flats are your alternative to sandals in the fall and what better way to spruce up some classics than with laces. I love the way lace-up flats add that extra oomph to a classic outfit. It’s small details like that that can really transform a look.
My whole outlook on boyfriend jeans has evolved. Being so loyal to my favorites, I used to only look at brands like AG, J Brand, or Current Elliott. But, times have changed. The key to finding the perfect boyfriend jeans for YOU is to try them all. Okay, well not all, but you should definitely be open minded. It’s definitely not a one size or brand fits all. Do some research, see how different jeans fit on different body types, and know your own body type. Sometimes the pair you’ve never heard of that’s under $100 are your dream bf jeans. While the pair I’m wearing above are a rediscovered pair that’s over $100, I have been eyeing so many cute affordable options at Nordstrom and also recently snagged this Blank NYC pair.
It’s nice to know I have good options at all price points and who knows, a pair below may just be the perfect boyfriend jeans for me. I’ll be sure to let you know how I like the Blank NYC pair and if I try any of the options below. After all, when you find an amazing pair of jeans you have to tell the world.
