New (to me) Denim Brand: Black Orchid

I realized the other day that some of my outfits may be crossing the line over from spring to summer. I give! I love summer. I just cannot WAIT for it to warm up so tank tops and shorts are the order of the day.

But I want to try to wrap up this spring style series with outfits that are decidedly SPRING. I think this outfit fits the bill. We didn’t plan to make this into a photo shoot. I just threw on this outfit to wear to a meeting the other night and realized I hadn’t photographed either of these pieces yet! It was super windy, so pardon the crazy hair.

dolman top and black orchid jeans via Stitch Fix // similar jeans $190 (similar style $64)
similar leopard flats $119 (or try THESE $14) // Alila Chandeliers $44
3-disc necklace $70 // similar cuff $32
similar bag $218 (I also like THIS in coral $35)

Ironically, both the top and the jeans are from Stitch Fix, but I’ve had the top for a year or so. The jeans came in my last Fix.

I get a lot of questions about Trunk Club vs Stitch Fix. There are definitely advantages to both, and I like both for different reasons. Full disclosure, I do not have a working relationship with either, but I do link with my affiliate link for Stitch Fix and my referral link for Trunk Club shopping credits. As always, I share my candid opinions.

I like Trunk Club for the sheer volume of clothes they send in each box. I also like how they give you access to your stylist so she can get to know you and your style needs. And I like that I can find the clothing online at Nordstrom to share with you.

Stitch Fix generally has a lower price point (well… except for these jeans! LOL!) and features brands you can’t find elsewhere. You can provide feedback to their stylists, but you don’t actually get to chat with them and build a relationship. They were the first box styling service I ever tried, and it’s been hit or miss for me over the years, but I do have a few gems that I’ve received from them.

This dolman sleeve top is one of them. It came last spring, and I’ve worn it a ton. It is super soft and comfy, and I think the color is gorgeous. I find myself wearing it all year round, but mostly spring and fall. Unfortunately, I can’t find anything like it to link you to.

The jeans are a new brand to me — Black Orchid. They are $188, so yeah. Pricey. But you know me and my love of premium denim, so I was curious to put these on. Y’all. These feel amazing. They are as comfortable as my pink and mint Paige Verdugo. I love the slightly higher rise, and they are super stretchy and comfortable, but they don’t bag out as you wear them. Color me impressed. I don’t know why I haven’t heard of them before!

I did some sleuthing and I found that both Amazon and Bloomingdales carry the brand, although these exact jeans are not available. Y’all know I need another pair of denim like I need a hole in my head, but the fit is fantastic. I like the released hem, and they are the perfect length for spring and summer, so they stay.

I threw on my leopard flats and grabbed this coral bag to complete the look. Oh, that hammered gold cuff bracelet also came in my last Stitch Fix. I love the casual cool vibe. I think it was $28.

I already had on the chandelier earrings and the 3-disc necklace from an earlier photo shoot, so I kept them on. I definitely like how they work with this outfit, but I may have been slightly overdressed for my meeting. LOL!
