I Dream of Jeans

Hi friends 🙂 Last time I was over here on the Fashion page, I showed ya my side of our in-process closet and asked for help with organizing my jewelry. My fancy schmancy stuff is in a safe, but wanted an easily accessible place for my everyday stuff. As usual, ya’ll flooded me with amazing ideas and suggestions, so I hit up Target with your ideas on the brain.

The solution:


A jewelry tree!

It was really inexpensive ($29) and after placing my jewelry in the little dish and on the cute branches, I set it on a mirrored candle plate next to a matching vase.

Love how it turned out 🙂


So today, I thought it would be fun to talk about jeans.

I’ve said before that I’m not a shoe girl, but I’m most definitely a jeans and purses girl. Like with anything will invest in jeans and purses that are good quality and will last, while super-saving on the trendy stuff. (My first pair of skinny jeans was a $12 pair from Forever 21 two years ago, but when I realized the trend was indeed here to stay, I invested in a more expensive pair)

The only challenge in my current jeans shopping is that the jeans I will be rocking this fall and winter will probably look something like this:

Wahp wahp.


So instead, I will live vicariously and dream of the jeans I would buy this season (and probably invest in 2 maternity pairs):

Skinny is still in (in new fabrics, too, like velveteen, light colors, jewel tones and prints)

Bootleg is back (thank goodness. It’s the universally flattering jean cut)


My 100% favorite jean ever created: 7 for all Manking A Pocket.

Straight leg is a great option for those who don’t want to ride the skinny jean train

High-waisted jeans and pants (which are not for short people. I will never wear them)

Wide leg and bell bottoms are also back. This scares me just a little.

Where’s your favorite place to buy jeans? What style do you like the most? I’ve fallen in love with straight-leg jeans and wear my boyfriend crops at least once a week.

My fave place to buy jeans is Off 5th and I also love the way Express jeans fit.

    I hate jean shopping because it’s so hard to find that perfect pair! But last week I seriously struck gold at Nordstrom Rack and scored a gorgeous pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans for $80. Pricey compared to what I typically spend on jeans but it was my first pair in 2 years! I think I may have found my new fave brand 🙂

    Have you tried the William Rast line from Justin Timberlake? I got a pair when the line was featured at Target (by waiting until they went on sale, I magically found a pair for $30!). They are the best! Super fit and the wash was great too. My absolute favorite pair is are about three years old and from Old Navy (I normally HATE their jeans but this was a fluke). They are a straighter cut than I usually wear, so in the summer time I live in them by rolling them up a couple inches kindof like the picture you have above. It’s so easy to dress up or down!
