School starts this week for most, and that means it is time to get serious about shopping for new denim. Back to school shopping is essentially the “kick off” to fall fashion for all! I’m obsessed with denim so my shopping is usually year round, what can I say?! I’ve slowly been getting rid of all my “low rise” fitting bottoms – because truth is, I’m in my 30’s and I just can’t rock that look anymore. I was getting so sick and tired of bending over and having my butt crack show. No plumber crack for me anymore! Each pair of denim I’ve been purchasing have all been a higher rise and I am SO happy with my current selections! Here are my top 5 favorite pairs I’m loving right now:

  1. AEO Denim Highest Rise Jegging: Um hi, these are bomb!! For starters, they are the highest rise that American Eagle make, and I am obsessed! If you struggle finding jeans high enough so you can rock the crop tops (okay, I know I’m in my 30’s but I’m not giving up that look yet, sorry) then these are for you! I’m 5’11 and surprisingly the regular length were plenty long on me! They have a great stretch, and really great distressing detail on the butt, back of jeans and bottom. These run true to size! (Click below to directly shop this look)
  2. AEO Super Soft X4 Hi-Rise Jegging: Here is what I absolutely love about these! For starters, the super dark wash with the freyed edge! I also love the simple knee slit that ACTUALLY HITS ME ON THE KNEE! I am SO excited about this one! I can never find a pair of jeans that have knee slits that actually hit me at the knee. So, if you are a long legged chick like me, you need these. They are super stretchy and fit true to size – I did a size 4 regular length in these as well. Sorry for the blurry pic but wanted to show you them on!(Click below to directly shop this look)                                 
  3. Free People High Rise Busted Knee Skinny: I’ve seen a lot of my fellow blogger friends rocking these so I decided to give them a try. To be honest, I should have sized up! The reviews are all over the board about these because each color (there are so many color combos of this denim) has a different fabric which means a different fit. I’m going to keep these and stretch them out, but I would definitely size up in these! I ordered a 27 and should have purchased the 28! What I love about these jeans are the big huge knee slits which are only going to get bigger over time – loveeeee that stretched out knee slit look! They are higher rise and definitely more of a crop fit (length wise) on me. (Click below to directly shop this look)                            
  4. Good American Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jean: If you’ve been following along with me through the Nordstrom sale madness then you already know my love for these jeans. They are an amazing fit, and I love the clean wash with a little pop of distress at the bottom. They look amazing with booties! They are definitely pricey, but I honestly think worth the splurge. These are especially great for girls with curves because they were made to flatter the real woman! I am wearing a size 4 in these and believe they run true to size!                (Click below to directly shop this look)                            
  5. Apricot Lane – The Jena Distressed Low Rise Skinnies: These are from my boutique Apricot Lane, and I know what you are thinking, “I thought you said you hated low rise Jena?!” Okay, so we named these the low rise skinnies because I am pretty sure that is how the invoice described them. They ARE NOT low rise!! I would say they are more of a mid rise/normal rise if anything. We have sold out of these so many times because the fit is unbelievable. I honestly want to wear them every single day, but have to remind myself that it would be overkill. Oh, and I own two pairs! These run true to size and I am wearing a size 5. Restock coming this week! (denim and shoes will both be restocked this week).(Click below to directly shop this look)                            

That narrows it down to my top 5 favorites that you will see me sporting all over Instagram all fall! Let me know if you have any questions I am happy to help!

Happy denim shopping!

Loads of weekend sales happening that I wanted to make sure you knew about! The biggest reminder though, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ENDS tomorrow! The way I see it, even if you aren’t 100% sure about something – grab it NOW, and you can always return it! Lock in this amazing price! Those booties above had quite the scary price tag, but I usually invest in one nice designer piece each year, and these were my splurge!

Here is a round up of the weekend sales to check out!

  1. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: last 2 days to shop! Grab your favorite items now at killer discounts! There are still some amazing items left, like this moto jacket!
  2. Express: 40% off jeans, no code necessary. I am loving this pair!!
  3. Nasty Gal: 50% off EVERYTHING, yep EVERYTHING, even sale! This website is my guilty pleasure to grab a designer piece here and there, and I also love it for “going out” outfits (always snag something from here for Vegas). Like this dress.
  4. American Eagle: 25% off your purchase with code SOMUCHNEW – I bought this hoodie cardigan and this hat.
  5. Joss & Main: up to 75% off rugs and other home decor. This is the rug I own and it’s on sale! Snag it up, I absolutely love the pop of color it gives my living room and its SO soft!!

 My ruffled bedspread is also on sale! I’m obsessed with this one, and I’ve honestly had it for years! Make sure to check it out!

Happy Saturday! I am rounding up some of my top picks in athleisure wear that are still in stock as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! With one week left to go in the biggest sale of the year, items are becoming very picked over! I am trying my best to make it as easy as possible for you to grab some amazing items, without digging through whats in stock and whats not! A lot of items will randomly become restocked in some sizes as people return them, so make sure you save these links if your size is currently sold out!

These leggings have been restocked in all sizes and let me tell you, they are SO comfy! I am usually a size 5/27 in bottoms and I did a size small in these. Make sure that you don’t size up and read the reviews — if you size up in leggings they will constantly feel like they are falling off. You are supposed to have those suckers tight!

 

 

 

I also really like these leggings – they were sold out and just restocked! I’ve seen a lot of my fellow blogger friends rocking these, and now knowing the amazing fit of Zella leggings, I’m going to need these of course!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve linked the rest of the items below, scroll and shop! Definitely check out these Zella leggings as well! I’ve heard amazing things about these, and just purchased myself!

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

xoxo,

Jena

Happy Friday dolls! Just wanted to give a major shout out to this adorable jacket that is currently on sale with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and somehow STILL in stock! What!? This to me has to be a hidden gem of the sale – the quality is amazing, and the ruffle detailing on the shoulders and the bottom of the sleeve are perfection! All outfit details linked below, have a wonderful weekend!
