Light denim is everywhere this spring. I love the look, but I’ll admit it’s much harder to wear than dark denim. So I went on a quest to find the perfect jeans for spring. I ordered different brands in multiple sizes, tried them all on and took some pics. I was actually surprised by which ones were my favorites. Here’s what I found:
My mom has always been my hero. Cliche, right? I know, I SO know . . . but seriously, she has always been my personal hero. I’m so proud of her. She has handled so many of life’s unexpected difficulties with grace and faith that is remarkable to me. Our family is so lucky and so blessed—we have some major love for one another—but we’ve been through some shit. Some serious, awful, unexpected shit. Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996. Shana in 2013. Both went through mastectomy surgeries, both through months of chemotherapy and both of them handled it with a strength and grace that I can only begin to fathom.
I’ve been loving all of the cool bell sleeve tops I’m seeing. They’re an effortless way of looking put-together without having to think too much about what you’re wearing. I dressed this one up with sequin statement earrings and over the knee boots (it’s still cold in Michigan) and will pair it with boyfriend jeans and sandals when the weather warms up a bit. The sleeves added a touch of fancy to an otherwise simple outfit . . . and you all know I’m all about adding a little fancy.
I started wearing maternity tops loooong before I was pregnant (or even married, for that matter). Because of my small shoulders/bigger butt issue like many of my pear-shaped ladies, finding longer tops was always an issue. They were either too tight in the hips and/or too loose up top. And then I discovered maternity tops. I was perusing Target one day with no specific list in mind (as we all do, amiright??) looking at clothes that I thought were cute. It wasn’t until I tried on the “tunic top” I had put in my cart that I realized it was actually maternity. But . . . I mean . . . it was cut longer, a little more generously and looked perfect over leggings. Who needed to know?
I am literally always on the hunt for jeans for girls with big butts and smaller waists (#curvygirlproblems). I can never find jeans that fit without squeezing my butt flat or gaping at the waist so when I heard about Good American, Khloe Kardashian’s new(ish) line of denim, I had high hopes . . . and I wasn’t disappointed.
My mom wears vests alll the time . . . I see a vest, I think, “Oh Mom would love this!” I never really even considered wearing them myself because they remind me so much of her (not in a bad way, Mom!). But then one day we were at her house and it was bit too warm for the huge puffy coat I had left the house in, so I borrowed her J. Crew vest. I actually kinda loved it! They’re perfect for that in-between weather (obviously), but I especially like those in fashionable patterns and fun colors. It’s another way to style a black turtleneck (something I’ve been doing a lot of lately, apparently). Add some cool-looking waterproof booties (yes, they exist!) and you have a perfect outfit to take you into spring. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below.
I’m such a sucker for moto jackets . . .give me all the colors, all the cuts, all the unique embellishments of zippers and collars. Love. They’re the perfect finishing touch to throw on over a spring dress or destroyed denim when the weather gets a bit warmer. For now? They’re upping my turtleneck game. LOL yes . . . I said turtleneck game. Because winter. It’s cold. And I need a way to refresh the simple jeans and turtleneck look that I’ll be rocking for weeks to come.
This is the perfect go-to look for a date night outfit that won’t leave you freezing and is super easy to throw together.
