My 5 Favorite Jeans Under $100

It’s no secret that I love a good pair of jeans. I love them in any season and will wear them with sneakers, boots, heels, t-shirts, button ups, literally everything! They are the ultimate staple in any wardrobe. But finding a high quality pair of jeans that are actually flattering on you and won’t break your bank, can be a bit of a challenge.

I feel like I’ve gotten hundreds of pairs of jeans over the years and have seen it all. The good, the bad, and the fugly. Along my journey for the perfect jeans I’ve come across some real winners that were able to reign supreme amongst the rest. Jeans so good that I’ve actually repurchased a few. And the best part is, they’re all under $100!!

So come along as I guide you through this journey to your next favorite pair of jeans!

 

  1. “Mom” Jeans

Okay, I know the name is misleading! But there is a lot of flattering features to be said about Mom jeans. I particularly love them because they are suuuuper high waisted, which gives me the illusion of having legs for days, when I am actually only 5’2. They also are pretty structured which means they hug my legs (and booty) to give my a super slim figure. I bought them in 3 colors and am obsessed! These also come in petite and tall. Shop these jeans from ASOS $56

 

2. Black Skinnys

I cannot stress enough how important it is to a have a good pair of black skinny jeans. I don’t think I wear anything in my closet more than my black skinnys. They are the perfect day to night option and I gaurentee they go with everything you already own. My two favorite pairs are these high waisted pair from ASOS $50, and these ripped super stretchy pair from Topshop $75.

 

3. Grey Skinnys

If its variety you want, don’t look passed grey. They, like black, go with just about anything, but also add a bit of edge to your look. Especially this pair with the ripped knee. I think this shade of grey pairs especially nicely with nudes and neutral tones, which are my current faves. This pair is also very high waisted and has a lot of stretch to it for a flattering, yet comfortable fit. Shop these grey skinnnys from Topshop $75

 

4. Stretchy Skinnys

Whether you’re traveling all day, or just want to eat a meal in peace, it’s always nice to have a little stretch in your skinnys amirite? These two pairs from Zara have been my absolute favorites and have lasted me over 2 years. I have repurchased them in several different colors because they’re just that good. They are so comfortable that I could (and have) sleep in these jeans. They do run a little long though, so if you’re petite you may need to get them hemmed or just cuff them like I do. Shop these jeggings from Zara $39, and these stretch jeans from Zara $49.

 

5. Ripped Hem

Ripped hem jeans are all the rage right now. They are such a statement piece and are a great addition to freshen up your wardrobe. I have several pairs that I love, but two in particular are these skinnys with a ripped hem and these flares with a more dramatic frayed hem. Both are great options to wear with heels or booties, which make them perfect for fall!

Shop these ripped hem skinny jeans $16 , and these flared frayed hem jeans $20

Adjusting to Dallas + Shop The Look

So, in case you haven’t heard, I recently packed up and moved from my hometown of San Antonio, Texas to Dallas to live with my fiancé and pup, and I have to say, it’s been pretty great! Although driving on the highways in Dallas is way more intense (terrifying) than it is in SA, and I have absolutely no idea where I am going 99% of the time (thank God for google maps), the adjustment has been pretty smooth. I am loving the fact that I actually get to see Justin everyday  instead of our daily texts and chats via FaceTime.

Little by little the unpacking is getting done and the house is coming together, and so is our new life. Although I do miss living in the city that I grew up in, and know like the back of my hand, and miss all of my best friends and family, I am so beyond excited to begin this next chapter in my life in a new city with my soon to be husband!

Now I just need to meet new friends and bloggers in Dallas and find new shops, restaurants and cool places to go! Let me know in the comments below if you are in the Dallas area or have any recommendations.

Shop My Favorite Pink Shoes

So after moving to Dallas and unpacking all my shoes into my new closet, I noticed that I may or may not have a major obsession with pink shoes. Specifically, ‘blush’ and ‘dusty rose’ shades. These neutral pinks just seem to go with everything I wear and transition into every season.

So, like I always say, when in doubt, think pink!

Shop My Favorite Two Piece Sets

Two piece sets are so not just for the pool. I’ve been growing my collection of two piece sets for a while now and have found that they are the perfect solution for someone who gets bored easily with the same old outfits in their closet (ME!). If you’re anything like me, you get a new outfit, LOVE it, wear it out a couple times, snap a few photos in it, then, well.. you’re over it and on the hunt for your next new outfit. The cool thing about two piece sets is while they look absolutely adorable worn together, they can be mixed and matched with other pieces in your closet (white tee, jeans, cardigans..) and worn over and over again in completely new ways, and have you feeling like you just bought an entirely new outfit (without hurting your wallet). This also makes two pieces sets a great option for traveling! As I make my way into adulthood (ew) I’m making it a point to try to be more responsible with my shopping habits and am trying to select pieces that I can wear in multiple ways and situations and have found that two piece sets are definitely the way to go.

The Neely and Chloe Airstream Tour

The new it girls have arrived, and they’ve brought handbags! Neely and Chloe, who? Burch, as in Tory. The creators of the Neely and Chloe are actually nieces of the fabulous, Tory Burch. Neely and Chloe features beautifully made handbags, shoes, and accessories.  The brand offers a variety of different handbags from leather to suede to canvas available in fun pops of color. Neely and Chloe also offers customization, including gold foil monogramming and ornaments, which can be added to any bag to truly make it your own.

Neely and Chloe sent me over the grey  suede Saddle Bag and I am absolutely obsessed with it! It’s the perfect size with an adjustable crossbody strap, which I, at 5’2, def appreciate. This is also a perfect bag to transition into the fall and winter months. I also added one of their leather tassels to my bag for a fun pop of color.

Click here to shop the Saddle bag, available in 3 different colors.

 

To kick off the launch of this new brand, Neely and Chloe hit the road in a vintage airstream turned pop up shop to promote the collection, so when they arrived in San Antonio at The Shops at La Cantera, I had to check it out. The adorable airstream included the entire collection along with the monogramming equipment and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. They will be in between Grimaldi’s and Vera Bradley at The Shops at La Cantera today Saturday July 22 until 9pm.

Tropical Vibes

As we all know, I live in the great state of Texas. One thing that is not so great about it however, are the outrageously hot summers. We are well into the hottest season of the year and with no end in sight, even the thought of dressing up can send us into immediate heat stroke. The key to surviving Texas summers are selecting light, breathable clothing options (but obviously cute too!), which is why these wide leg pants from Free People + this super light tank = a win! I paired the trendy/functional outfit with a platform espadrille, and super fun (yet not practical) yellow lens aviators. I topped my look off layering a couple gold chokers and added a chevron print Gucci handbag to add an unexpected element to the already semi-whimsical look. Even though we’re in Texas, this look gave me total tropical vibes and transported me to the jungles of Tulum or the beaches of Miami.

How do you beat the Texas heat? What are some of your go to summer styles? Let me know in the comments below.

That Romper Tho!

Who doesn’t love a lightweight flowy romper tho? Honestly I’ve been all about simplicity this summer, especially since I now have a 3 month old pup who has completely taken over my morning routine.

Rompers and statement earrings have basically been my summer uniform. It’s the perfect look for the trendy girl on the go and I’m obsessed!

Gingham All Summer

Gingham has been one of the hottest trends of the season and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon! From tops, to skirts, to dresses, pants, and even swimsuits, gingham continues to be the perfect print to make a statement that takes your outfit to the next level. What’s cool about gingham is that it’s bold enough on it’s own but not too bold to mix and match with other prints and colors. I styled my bell sleeve gingham top with black skinny jeans and a statement sandal for a casual chic look. But a simple gingham top can go with pretty much anything. Gingham is a trend you’ll wear over and over this season. How do you feel about gingham and what’s your favorite way to wear it? Let me know in the comments below!
