Straight Leg Jeans

You know Mama loves her vintage wash jeans, but she needs a. bit. more. stretch. We're looking at Abercrombie, Madewell & Mother to find that unicorn denim.
Well, hey, I'm back trying on more jeans. New year, same me. Currently, I'm looking for the perfect straight leg vintage wash jeans that don't completely chop into my midsection when I sit down. This may be impossible, you guys. But I'm here to try. I tried and tried the 100% cotton Levi's, and even took a bath in...
A lil' casual-glam goes a long way on New Year's Eve — even for staying in. We're hosting a low-key NYE party & I still intend to SHINE. #sparklebabes
We're having a little house party for New Year's Eve, which I'm getting really excited about. I don't usually host parties (see my latest post), but this year I decided it was about time. I'm looking forward to just being with our friends, even though I don't have any decor, will be throwing together last minute apps, and ya know...definitely...
The key to nailing your holiday shopping outfit is COMFORT. Think fav denim, walkable shoes & layers. Here's how we do for gift-hunting garb success.
Casual + comfy + cute — those are my three main outfit goals while getting dressed for a festive and frenzied day of last-minute Holiday Shopping. As tempted as I am to always dress up every time I'm doing anything Christmas related — ya know, decked out with some sequins or velvet — I have to remind myself that...
Sweater I Jeans I Bag I Shoes Would you like to know what we, here at the TME are actually wearing? Because of this job I'm often trying new things, putting myself in different situations and thinking about how to wear things. But more often than not, I'm always in some kind of uniform that takes me from school drop off, to the park or library...
Back in the day, we all scoffed at 'skinny jeans' and wondered how in the heck we'd move away from our bootcuts and flares. We then scoffed at 'mom jeans', me included, and thought 'there is no way that 80's trend is coming back.' Aaand...we all remember the cropped flares shenanigans of 2016. Trends are funny and are always...
The first time I went to Paris, Mike and I were in our 20's. We saved up all of our vacation days and booked an apartment for...wait for it....three glorious weeks. For three weeks we visited the market, cooked in our tiny little kitchen, and ate our way through as many restaurants as we could. We lounged on bridges,...
Pink and orange is a color combo that would usually be outside of my style comfort zone. I would have never bought this colorful striped pullover if I hadn't wandered into my local Free People store and laid eyes on it IRL. In fact, online, I passed right over it with barely a second thought. But in person, I was...
Levi’s is a word that makes me happy. I’d say 80% of my denim is Levi’s and I just keep adding more to my collection. I dress mine up and down all the time and the jeans are a really great option for date night. When it comes to where I shop for the best Levi’s, you know I...
Peplum tops? Remember when you couldn't go into a store without seeing at least 100 of them? I had my fair share of them when they first came into the picture in 2012, but I hadn't had one for years until now. This year I saw them making a comeback...in a different way. They are more interesting and relaxed....
As most of you know, I spent an amazing vacation in Moab last March. The flight home always feels surprisingly long, but I had plenty of time to peruse a few magazines.  I totally fell in love with a pair of paint splattered jeans I spotted (ha? get it?) in Glamour.  And since I'm the DIY type, I immediately busted...
