Can I Pull Off Leather Pants?


As someone who lives in denim and goes weeks without wearing anything else, it was hard to commit to something totally different. But when the season changed and I started to rotate the clothes in my closet, I started noticing a new trend creeping in…leather pants. I immediately ignored it until I found an affordable pair that would make having fun with the trend a little easier.

Instead of second guessing myself, I jumped right in!

Since the pants on their own make such a statement, keeping it simple with something like a plain white top is a cute way to wear it. But for a date night, these pants are so much more polished than my usual go-to jeans.

I like the idea of an ‘edgier’ bottom for a change. What do you think?

I Can’t Believe These Dresses Are From Target!

In case you are looking for some retail therapy that doesn’t break the bank, look no further. Target has partnered up with some pretty amazing designers and is carrying so many unique dresses that are simply too good to NOT share.

With all of these picks coming in at under $60 you can wear them year after year occasion after occasion.

Hope you found something you like.

The Jeans You Need for Spring are On Sale Now!

I live in jeans! I don’t wear skirts or shorts much, but jeans – yes! Over the years I have also crept my way up in price points out of curiosity to test out if when you spend more you get more.

Comparing Jeans

In comparing the three brands I am going to share with you I wanted to judge them on: quality of denim, variety within the collection, price point, and durability.

It is a pet peeve of mine when denim stretches and lose their overall shape. I also don’t love it when denim loses its ‘luster’ after a few washes.  NONE of the brands I have shared here do that. They have all been tried and tested by me.

That being said I wanted to share three brands at three different price points that I love and why.

Articles of Society -Under $50

Let’s start with the most affordable and impressive brand in this category.  Articles of Society denim is available at Nordstrom (so for those of you who are cardholders, your money goes a lot further).  With the average cost of these jeans coming in at $50, you can get 4 pairs of these when compared to higher-end designer jeans.

These jeans are true to size, have a lot of style choices in their collection and are a good buy!  I gravitate to Articles of Society for more playful denim.  These are great for a unique pair of jeans that you won’t necessarily wear every day.  For daily wear, jeans keep reading.

NYDJ Jeans– Under $100

Also available at Nordstrom (but on a steeper sale here), I describe NYDJ jeans as Mom Perfect.  There is truly a practical cut that feels great for ANY woman out there in this collection.  They tend to deliver the most classic and clean-cut looks that I would call “Mom-friendly.’  Because of this, they are perfect for finding a great pair of daily wear denim. 

NYDJ jeans have the perfect stretch and they’re high-quality denim that holds up.  There is a reason these are priced at a little under $100 (so many styles are on sale now). 

If you are just looking for a great pair of jeans that you can count on day after day ( I wear them around town and for playdates often) and look good and feel great, these are it!

Good American – Over $100

Khloe Kardashian really did a great job with this brand.  I have several pairs of Good American jeans because they are ‘stylish.’ They offer an extra edge to help justify the price point which sometimes is worth it.  Ten out of ten times if I am on a Date Night or GNO, I am wearing my Good American jeans. They are stretchy, comfortable, and edgy.  In my opinion, totally worth the splurge (I have had mine for over two years).    She has added so much to the collection that I have not checked out yet, so stay tuned for a haul on that soon.

Hopefully, if you are looking to shop some new denim, this post was helpful.  Finding the right pair of jeans can be totally worth the effort when you wear them all the time.

White Sneakers

Let’s talk white sneakers for a moment. They have been on trend for a while now and I don’t foresee them going anywhere anytime soon! From no show socks to low rise socks there isn’t any way you can’t wear these beauties!  Most designers have made their own versions of this wardrobe staple, but this fashion trend doesn’t have to break the bank!  My two favorite pairs @colehaan and @katespadeny were scooped up from Nordstrom Rack for under $100!  From Converse to Gucci there are so many different styles that match the white sneaker trend.

I like to throw my sneakers with jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts… and even under gowns!  See our YouTube hack on how to keep your white sneakers clean here.

When I reflect on pictures in my camera roll, I see my white sneakers appear in so many photos from school parent meetings to strolls with my family on vacay.  If you don’t own a pair or need a new pair, check out some of my tops picks!
