One of the topics I love to read about on other blogs is what they’ve ordered or discovered lately that was the MOST worthwhile and awesome.
The best thing I bought last month? My white J Crew high-waisted denim jeans! I have them in a medium and a dark rinse (and they’re the best pants ever — esp the dark rinse jeans, which are soooo soft and perfect), but I went ahead and bought them in white for this spring/summer. I love good white jeans and my pair from 2016 got some stains on them I can’t seem to get out, so it was due time.
I do wish I’d opted for a 26R instead of 27R, but my other high-waisted jeans are 27’s and work great (so size down, folks, if you’re questioning it — they run a teensy bit large!). These are a little higher waist than the other pairs but it works wonderful as a “mom jean” to suck you in (and you can’t see it anyways if you don’t tuck in your shirts).
My official “mom uniform” for the spring is a pair of white jeans + some colorful (probably Lilly Pulitzer) top + statement jewelry OR pearls & a Kendra Scott Elisa pendant + wedges or metallic Jack Rogers sandals. Maybe I’m boring or basic, but it just WORKS to have something as a standby. And this outfit? Perfect for casual church, work meetings or networking events, date night, running errands, girls’ nights, you name it. Dressy it up with a fancier clutch, some dangly earrings, and heels, and it’s special! Or dress it down with flat sandals and pearl studs, and you can easily hit up the grocery store or Target without feeling overdone.
What’s been your favorite purchase as of late? Anything you can’t live without now? Holla!
