Ahhh, yes… back in my comfort zone with skinny jeans!
I will keep experimenting with new styles, but there’s nothing like the tried and true. For me, that’s skinny jeans, but I’m keeping them fresh with fall florals — a hot trend this season.
Fall florals are huge this year, and I think this floral blouse is so pretty. I love the modest v-neck and the elbow-length sleeves. It has a loose fit, so I did a front-tuck to give it some shape through the waist. For size reference, I have the small.
I have several pairs of black skinny jeans, but these Frame skinnies are the most forgiving. Lately I’ve been hanging onto a few extra pounds, and these jeans have a nice amount of stretch so they don’t bind or crease. They also never bag out, but they do tend to slide down as I wear them. I’ve learned to overlook that, though, because they fit so well. For size reference, I’m wearing the 29.
For a more budget-friendly option, I was impressed by the fit of the LOFT modern skinnies, but they do stretch out out as you wear them, so size down.
These are my favorite sunglasses, the Maui Jim Honey Girl style in Dove Grey with Neutral Grey Lenses. I’m a Maui Jim brand ambassador, and with that position I’ve had the opportunity to try a lot of their styles, but these are my favorites. They’re so comfortable, and I love the shape, plus I think the pattern and variation of colors in the frames is so pretty and interesting — they almost have a mosaic look about them.
I’m also wearing one of my longtime favorite necklaces — this Gorjana 3-disc necklace. I like how it fills the neckline without taking center stage. Being larger up top, I tend to stay away from statement necklaces, but I also get tired of a single pendant, so this piece is the perfect solution.
My earrings are also Gorjana, but they sold out during the Nordstrom Summer Sale last weekend. Here is a similar style.
Okay, so these shoes… *swoon* These mules were another #NSale purchase, and they were definitely a splurge, but fortunately I was able to get them at 40% off. I love how they update my basic looks, and they also stay on my feet really well when I walk, which not all mules do.
A good budget-friendly option is the BP. open toe mule in the black suede, and I also like these Halogen slides for a lower heel. I can’t speak to the comfort level on those, but both have been really popular on style blogs this summer.
This is the type of outfit I’d wear to church or out to lunch with friends on warmer fall days this fall, and I can add a cardigan or moto jacket when it starts to cool down.
