Lands-End-Sugarlaws-Final-2

If there’s one thing I update in my wardrobe every season, it’s my favorite pair of jeans. 

I know, I know.  Shouldn’t I pick out a new trend?  Crop tops or leather or something novelty-ish and cool?

Nope.  The pieces I reach for, day after day, aren’t those novelty trends.  They’re denim.

This season, I’ve fallen completely in love with this par of Low Rise Slim Jeans from Land’s End.  (Yes, Land’s End.) They’re the perfect fit and come in multiple different lenghts, so even petite girls like me can find the perfect fit!  (The pair I’m wearing is size 2 and a 30″ inseam, if you’re curious!) I rolled them up a tiny bit at the cuff, but they fit great with or without that little accent.  The quality is amazing and I love their dark wash!

And even better — they’re a total bargain at $69!  For a girl who usually spends $150 or $200 on the pair of perfect jeans each season, these are completely mind-blowing.  I need them in every style! 

I paired these jeans with this adorable breton-striped top and a denim jacket, both from Land’s End too.  The denim jacket is a total find as well — their fabric is soft, classic, and looks great dressed up or down.  It has just enough stretch to flatter, but not so much that you have trouble moving or breathing.  For this new mom who’s on the go constantly, they’re the perfect pair. 

What are your favorite pieces to update this fall?  For more selections of Land’s End denim, check out their entire line here!

Foster-Grant-Final-3

Remember these sunglasses?  They were my absolute favorites last season, but this year, I’ve been falling in love with aviators more than ever!  Still, though, when I was searching for the perfect pair to go along with this dress, these were what I reached for in an instant.

Because, let’s face it: they’re fun without being too serious, flattering for just about any face shape, and totally easy to wear.  Best of all, they’re about $20 a pair (you can find them at your local CVS, Walmart, Walgreens or Target), so at that price, stock up in case you need extras! 

And, seriously: this outfit is all about the accessories.  Perfect sunnies, perfect chic necklace, perfect purse.  This jeweled necklace is part of the Stripes and Sequins x Bauble Bar collection, and Grace is so incredibly talented and I’m thrilled to wear her beautiful pieces!  Look for lots more in coming posts.

hints of fall

Maxi-Final-4

One of the most insane things about living in Houston is that when the rest of the world starts drooling over fall clothes — all those streamlined jackets and luxe cashmere knits — we are still sweltering in 100+ degree weather for, oh, say, another three months or so

So, take the title of this post for what it’s worth: here in Houston, it’s mid-August and there are no hints of fall in sight.  But if there were, this leather vest would be the first thing I grab — as it is, it’s mostly useful for battling frigid restaurant-and-office air conditioning systems! 

Or… for Fashion Week?  Can you believe it’s that time again?  I swear, it comes earlier every year!

Also, I have to let you guys know — when I bought this maxi dress, it was full price (boo!) but it’s now on sale for 50% off, and still available in almost every size.  Unbelievable!
