Hello, friends! I don’t know about you but it is a constant struggle to pair booties and the perfect length pair of jeans. Not to mention the bigger struggle to make sure they hug your ankle perfectly. Now that temperatures are warming, it is the perfect time to find some great booties on sale. There are some trends that I wouldn’t suggest waiting until after the season to buy but luckily I don’t think the bootie trend is leaving anytime soon.
I can personally vouch for all of these Jeans. I own all of them. I kissed a lot of frogs/tried on a lot of jeans to find my prince/top lineup in denim.
Pair #1 by Current/Elliott from Nordstrom. Low rise, buy a size down (always a plus), and hit right above the ankle. They pair perfectly with an ankle bootie, such as these fab olive colored booties by Andrew Marc.
Pair #2 by Splendid. I also love leggings by Hue. These booties are perfect with leggings for a casual night out or even to slip on with your yoga pants.
Pair #3 by JBrand from Bloomy’s. JBrand is my go-to for denim. They are the perfect length, I am always the same size, and they consistently fit flawlessly. I love these jeans because they are longer and are still tight around the ankle, perfect for cuffing with booties or tucking into my new favorite booties by Chloe.
Pair #4 by JCrew. I just bought these and LOVE them. They are high-rise but not super high. They hit right at the ankle so they pair perfectly with a heeled bootie, like the Tiffany bootie from Andrew Marc. Side note- they come in black and dark brown.
I hope this line-up helps if you struggle denim length syndrome, like myself. Happy shopping!
I remember the days when one wouldn’t dare wear pink and red together. Now, I can’t get enough of a deep red, such as a Marsala, Port, or a Burgundy paired with a pop of pink.
I always find it so interesting that I once swore off a look and then later down the line loved the same matchup. For example, wearing silver and gold jewelry together. In high school and college, I would have never mixed metals. Now, I mix metals on the daily. What trend did you use to dislike that you now love?
I have searched for a pair of Port flats. Oka B always comes through! They are the perfect winter flat and can be dressed up or dressed down thanks to the adorable bow and gold bow clasp. I also love the Navy pair. Be sure to check them out and treat your feet!
Last week I was lucky enough to check out the Abbey Glass boutique and headquarters in Atlanta. Wow! It was more than I expected. I loved every piece that I tried on, which was a lot. Typically when I try things on, I find one or two items that I love. I am kind of a material snob and I love for things to fit like they were made for me without having to get tailored. I have met my match and I think it is safe to say that, Abbey Glass is my new favorite designer and the studio is local to Atlanta, is the icing on the cake.
I highly recommend booking an appointment at the Abbey Glass boutique to either check out the line or pick out the perfect holiday dress. Here are a couple of my favorite pieces for the holidays- Greer Dress, Mischa Dress, Meghan Dress, and the Valerie Halter.
