I get asked a lot of my jeans and I just posted these from Good American. They fit true to size. I got a 2/26, and they stretchy and flattering! I paired it with the ultimate waist flattering safari tunic in size 1.
This week we are missing my parents but loving this Georgia spring, lots of grass and country air.
Every once in a while, maybe once every year, Revolve does a big sale that is the bomb. I consequently make 3 separate orders because I see more things to add to cart. Whoops. I rounded up my favorites here!
I’m realizing that after so many years and so many pairs of jeans, I keep going back to only a handful of pairs. I’ll name them below:
LEVIS 721 skinny jeans. They’re only $88, have build in busted knees (mine have gotten bigger with time) and so flattering with a universal wash. I also love this lighter wash. How cute are these shorts?
TOPSHOP I basically started blogging with this pair of jeans. I like their washes and distressing. I rarely go up in size for jeans, but I do for this brand.
I get a ton of questions about my jeans so I thought I’d round up some of my favorite jeans under $100! If you’re like me and finding yourself spending more of your wardrobe budget on puffer jackets, coats, silk pillowcases, chunky knit throws and cashmere scarves, not to mention holiday gifts, this post should be of use.
These are skinnies for long tunics and layering, this one is awesome for chunky knit sweaters (size down), and I’ve had these jeans for ages and they’re still flattering. And these are not under $100 but an overall great jean!
5 Jeans Under $100:
Don’t size up. Seriously. Err on the side of too small because cotton and stretch will stretch with time.
Don’t worry about length. If you’re petite and worried about the jeans hanging on the floor, you can always get them hemmed (Nordstrom card holders get this perk for free) or just cut them off, like I do.
To prevent fading, wash inside out and add 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar to the final rinse cycle, or hand wash with Woolite. I really rarely wash my jeans. I just spilled coffee on mine the other day while out and just used Dawn soap from the kitchen and scrubbed it out.
Don’t forget that cropped jeans that hit at the smallest part of your ankle look AWESOME with fun shoes like these:
I’d love to know, or if you have any tips, add them to the comments!

Off the shoulder stripe (on sale)

COLD SHOULDER stripes
Above most outfits, I love layers. A good tank with a stripe button down or cardigan is my jam. These two weeks, I’ve been dropping off and picking up kids from soccer camp, so I haven’t had a ton of time to overthink what I’m wearing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving having the kids home and these lazy dog days of summer. We just hung out in my daughter’s room last night and chatting – all four of them. It really felt like a lazy summer which I love. So an oversize tank, fave rips, and optional layering in the AC it is. We’re dropping off the kids at VBS and going to get pho. Can’t wait. What are your weekend plans?
Last week, I had the honor of meeting the Liketoknow.it team in Venice, CA. They were in town from Dallas, for the debut of their mural on 228 Main Street in Venice, CA 90291. It has a variety of colors – and shapes and it was fun seeing people’s reactions when they walked by. So pretty and well done team LTK!
What’s your favorite mural? We’re off to Laguna to meet a dear friend of mine. Happy Humpday!
We were off to visit my aunt and didn’t plan to stop by this cute little street in Laguna Beach, but the road down was too inviting to miss. The kids wanted to stretch their legs after an hour drive from LA, and this little cove was the perfect rest stop. Never mind the fact that we parked illegally, at least it was for a short time to take in the views.
I got so many questions about this top I posted on Instagram, I thought I’d give you a couple selections below. I’m always surprised how much bang for the buck a red off the shoulder top is. It looks great with blue and white denim and even a fresh out of the shower wet braid.
Shop my faves below. How was your weekend?
