Happy Monday Morning! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and are ready to see what this new week holds. I just wanted to share an outfit with you today that I would wear on a lunch date with my hubby, Wednesday night church service or running errands & different activities with the kids.
I have paired this cute plaid and black top with my distressed black skinny jeans with frayed hem. I love the color blocking on this top because it is very flattering to your waistline and has a higher neckline for bending over. The material is a rayon/spandex blend which makes it soft but a little dressier. It comes in sizes xs-xxl and I’m wearing the small for reference. You could choose which skinny pants and how much distressing is your desired amount. I chose light distressing on the knees and frayed hems.
This exact pair is no longer available but I like these and these. The Express jeans are available in sizes 00 to 18 and come in short, average, long and petite. They are also holding a buy 1 get 1 for $19.90. I love a good sale and with cooler weather it’s a great time to check out your closet inventory.
The second option come from GAP. They have no distressing throughout but have the raw/frayed hem. This makes them perfect for the times when distressing is too casual but you’d still like to be on trend. They are available in sizes 24 through 35. They also come in regular, tall & petite. The holds-you-in front pocket panels are a “Yes Please” ha ha. For size reference, I wear a 28 or 29 which is a 6 or 8 in U.S. sizing. My open toed black booties were a perfect choice to bring in the fall weather and to elongate my leg line with keeping the jeans and booties in the same color family. The inseam on my jeans also allows the smallest part of my leg to show.
I love the curved hemline of this top which makes it flattering to your hip line and keeping you covered to wear with your skinny jeans. Since I am 5’9, booties with a lower heel and shaft that are comfortable are my shoes of choice. These black open-toed booties, Koolaburra by Ugg, are super cute and comfortable with that ortholite footbed. But I must say, I also love to rock a heel despite my height:)
The blues in the plaid are very pretty. It’s also a little unexpected because most plaids come in the grays and browns. The color was a major selling point for me as well as being great for my pear shaped silhouette.
I love the dressiness of the top with the contrasting slight distressing of the jeans to give this girl the edge she loves.
If you prefer skinny jeans without the distressing then a raw/frayed hem would give you the same effect:)
I wore my pearl earrings, silver heart necklace and a white leather wrap bracelet to bring out the white in my top. My exact bracelet is sold out but I love this one and this from the Alison + Aubrey collection. They are a sweet Mom & Daughter with their own jewelry collection. They have great quality with very affordable prices I love to play up my eyes so I went with a gray and blue daytime smoky eye and nude lips applying cool girl mattewear lipstick from Sephora and Mary Kay fancy nancy lipgloss.
Nude closed toed booties would also look great with this outfit. These would be a great option when the rain comes and the color helps elongate your legs too. Or if you’re loving the wedge tennis shoe trend, these would also be a good choice. And these wedge booties are super cute too.
I hope this week brings you new fun adventures and not too many challenges. I’m trying to spend a little time each day with my family. I think it’s so easy to get caught up in all that life demands of us. So I encourage you this week to set aside some fun time even if that means reading together before bed or taking time to enjoy that piece of pie after dinner instead of immediately getting up to do the dishes. The dishes will wait but precious family time will not.
