Happy [almost] Friday, babes! I hope you all had an awesome week. I was in Tampa for work, BUT I got to hang out with two of my FAV blogger babes: Christian Buck from Christian Blair Style and Laura Beverlin from Styled Adventures. Make sure you check them out! We had SUCH an amazing time. We got to dinner at 7:30 and next thing I knew, it was almost midnight. I learned so much, laughed a lot, drank a lot, and ate too much dessert. Shocker. Now to my post about the latest DENIM TREND alert.
GIGI WORE THEM? What.
Last weekend, my friend Jeana Lee was like “did you see Gigi wearing the jeans you wore to NYFW?” UM NO I didn’t. How did I miss that? Anyways, this was absolutely my favorite outfit I wore that week. It is fashion forward, yet comfy and casual, AND now the jeans are 30% off (more on that later).
Since I waited until the 11th hour to decide to go to NYFW, I was stuck shopping at the last minute and spending way too much money. I am not even lying. I shipped an insane amount of clothes to the hotel. Of course I didn’t keep much and shipped most of it back (maybe), but at least I had options.
THE COOLEST DENIM TREND
I ran across these jeans and just HAD TO HAVE them. Are they jeans? Or is it a skirt? Or could it BOTH?! I love how different they are. I have always done my own thing when it comes to fashion, but these take individuality to another level. Vogue and Who What Wear both covered this layered denim trend (a take on “demi-denim”) as controversial, yet the “coolest new jeans.” Look, I know what you are thinking…”there is NO WAY I can pull this off.” I get it, I totally do. These are fashion-forward, extremely unique, and kinda intimidating. BUT if you are wanting to stand out, denim is the perfect way to do it. These jeans are not cheap. They are very expensive. However, they are now 30% off, so if you are going to do it, now’s the time. Trust me, the investment will pay off. Versions of these jeans will be everywhere, and you would have been one of the first to rock this trend.
HOW TO STYLE
I paired the jeans with my Self Portrait lace shirt (LOVE it in this blush color) that I wore nonstop this Spring. Remember this post about mixing lace and suede? An even cuter version of this shirt is part of the sale and is linked HERE and a LESS THAN $170 option HERE. For a more casual look, I would pair with a soft white t-shirt, black choker ($33), and sneakers (OBSESSED with these white + leopard sneaks for less than $120) or even a velvet bodysuit and a pair of platforms. You can create this EXACT OUTFIT while saving 30% off. Here is the SHOP THE POST, Shopbop sale-style:
HOW DO THE JEANS FIT?
In terms of sizing, I typically wear a 24 or 25 in jeans. These are size 25 and are pretty tight in the waist, so I would size up if you are in between sizes. If you are looking for a way to get these jeans for less…well, you can actually put together a long (or short) denim skirt over a pair of ankle jeans. Just make sure they are fitted up top and the skirt is slightly bigger. Email me if you have questions.
SHOPBOP MAIN EVENT SALE
One thing I LOVE about SHOPBOP is that you can link your Amazon Prime account (sign up HERE), so overnight shipping is only $5.99 per item and two-day shipping (AND returns) is FREE. That’s pretty crazy when you think about it. We are in the final 2 days of their MAIN EVENT SALE, and I wanted to make sure I share my favs (head to the SHOPBOP link in my menu bar). I will continue adding items I find and removing items that sell out. Make sure you use code MAINEVENT16 at checkout and link your Amazon Prime account for FREE shipping and returns.
DO YOU, LADIES. DO YOU.
I know you guys think I wear the craziest pieces sometimes, BUT fashion is such an amazing way to express yourself. It gives you the ability to be creative, be fearless, and truly BE YOURSELF. So, this is my challenge to you: think of something you have been DYING to wear but really don’t think you can pull it off. WEAR IT and wear it with CONFIDENCE. I promise you will feel so great about yourself!
DON’T FORGET: The SHOPBOP Main Event sale ends on October 15th. I have linked tons of favs, most being under $150 BEFORE the sale. Use code MAINEVENT16 to receive 25-30% off brand new fall items, DESIGNER pieces, and your fav accessories. You can shop the sale HERE. Happy shopping! LASTLY, what is your opinion of the jeans? Love em? Hate em? Or not quite sure? I would love to hear your feedback. As always, thanks so much for reading, and have a FAB Friday! Oh, and of course, make sure you follow me on Insta for all the fashion, all the Asher (can’t believe he turns 14 months tomorrow), and all the food pics.
