Styling My Straight Legs Jeans


As we all know, trends in jeans come and go. A style will be strong for years and then finally fade away. The one style that I have noticed never goes out of style is the straight leg. The pair I am wearing in this post is a few years old and just as fresh looking now as when I got them. They are from White House Black Market @WHBM . I loved them so much I got two pair and wish I had bought more because I think they will wear out before they go out of style. When I want to look a little dressed up but still wear jeans, these are my go-to jeans. When styling this outfit I wanted a dressier top so I wore this light weight cream colored one. It is a tunic and long so I used my trick of tucking it into my belt loop. It defines my waist a little and controls all the extra fabric. I wore a pair of navy heels and carried a leopard bag. For jewelry I layered a couple of delicate necklaces, added hoop earrings and a watch. I was done and ready for a nice summer evening.


I wanted to share with you a new group board on my Pinterest! I love Pinterest as many of us do but it seems as in many things, it is more represented by the young and fabulous in the fashion and style genre. I am moving to make a change and created a group board titled Style Wise. Check it out here. It was just created and needs some more inspiration so if you are a fashion and style blogger and would like to be a contributor let me know via I would love to have more Style Wise women help me show brands and society our value and relevance!

I didn't shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year, I wasn't seeing anything really new. I did find some amaing things at the Rack so I added links to my finds. An amazing white shirt with fringe tail, my favorite jeans both on sale as well as a camo jacket and a pale pink and cream shearling jacket also both deeply discouted to my Boutique and Chatter page here. So check it out and all the other noise on my blog. 

I've been bringing in new clients for blog designing and so enjoying the process. So if you are thinking about starting a blog and need a designer give me a holler! I've had many clients that already have blogs but want my phase two and three services. More detail are on my Services page here.

I think I am going to offer a free course on starting up your own blog so if you have interest let me know and I'll put you on my list for the first course. More details to come.
