Reader Survey & Feedback

Before you judge the post’s title, hear me out. I’ve been feeling uninspired when it comes to the blog for quite some time. At first I ignored it, thinking a brand new week or month could resolve some of the problems, but after feeling the same way for months, I realized it’s a thing. I’ve talked to Mike and my family about the issue and both have had some good advice, but it was time to reflect and get some feedback from the people that know this space really well, YOU.

Denim Review with Nordstrom

Mariella Vilar Market bag

As fall approaches, one of the many trends I look forward to is denim. I’m a denim girl at heart, always have been, always will be. They’re what I feel most comfortable in, but also what I feel most sexiest in. Not only are jeans essential once the weather cools down, but they’re the one piece you’ll reach for most often. Since they play such a major role in the upcoming seasons, finding the right pair is critical. It’s actually one of the more exciting seasons for denim because there’s so many great styles and washes on-trend right now. Yes, skinny jeans are still going strong, but now you have high-waisted, cropped straight, cropped flare, vintage, distressed boyfriend, raw hem, step hem, girlfriend, and I’m sure many more. For someone who makes a big deal out of denim shopping, I’m so excited to try all the new styles!

I happen to shop for most, if not all, my jeans at Nordstrom. I love being able to shop all the different brands in one spot, but also discover new-to-me on-trend affordable brands as well. I found these boyfriend jeans by Treasure & Bond during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and LOVE them (see me style them here). I also stumbled upon these from STS Blue while in-store and was immediately sold on the fit and distressing. I had never tried either of the brands, but ended up loving them. Best part, both are under $100!  

I also recently tried a few Topshop jeans from Nordstrom. I have always really loved their on-trend styles and affordable price-point, but never understood the sizing, so I shied away… until now. I’m so excited to review the Jamie Ripped High Rise Ankle Skinny JeansTopshop Moto Leigh Summer Pansy Crop Skinny Jeans, the Lucus Ripped Boyfriend Jeans.  I tried all of them in the petite size, but all the styles come in regular sizing as well.
