Hi loves, It’s only mid-week and I’m already dreaming about Friday…LOL. I traveled to Greenwich, Connecticut for the Cancer Care Walk/Run for Hope, I had an amazing time. The weather was perfect and there is nothing like seeing old friends. I’ll post about the event in my next post. In the mean time, I wanted to share another casual fun look with you. I discussed why I love high-waisted skinny jeans in a previous post and here I am rocking another pair. The only difference is that these are a straight or tapered leg.
I found this off the shoulder shirt online and I think it’s so sexy. I fell in love with It’s soft cotton blend and coral color. I think it works really well with high-waisted jeans. I can either tuck the shirt in or wear it out, it looks great either way. I found the jeans at a local Burkes Outlet store for $9, they are by Gloria Vanderbilt . Her jeans have always been a favorite of mine for years.
The overall look is very simple and everyday. I wore the sandals in a before, I like the neutral color and the platform, it gives me height and makes my legs look a little longer. You can easily dress this outfit up with more accessories or other statement pieces and create a different look. I’m looking forward to 2 upcoming events that will require more dressy outfits, I can’t wait to share them with you all. Please enjoy the pictures and the rest of the week!

Are you wearing the wrong style jeans? I know that there are so many jean styles on the market that work for different body shapes. I personally live for high waisted skinnies because it works best for my pear shaped body. I think the trick to finding the right type of jeans is to first identify your own body type. A pear shaped body type has a smaller bust, waist, and we are more
heavy curvy on the bottom, as a matter of fact when I put on weight, it shows most in my legs and butt. I think that high waisted jeans work best for curvy girls like myself.
I love it when I come across the perfect pair of jeans. I consider the perfect jeans one that makes my waist look smaller, they have to stretch, hide belly fat, and belly bulge. I avoid low-rise or hipster jeans because they expose muffin tops and butt crack. If I find a pair of jeans that fit my hips and butt really good, it usually has too much room in the back. When I find one pair that works, I usually pick up the same style in several colors. I don’t like spending a fortune on jeans, I won’t pay over $40 for a pair jeans. I buy jeans any where I find them and I have no loyalty to any particular brand. The pair I’m wearing are Signature Levi Strauss & Co. from Walmart they cost $20.
I have big calves, thick thighs, and plenty of booty. I look for jeans that not only compliment my figure but they have to be comfortable. I don’t want to always wear a belt to keep them from having a big gap in the back. It use to be frustrating finding a nice pair of jeans that almost fit. I use to take in the back of all my pants until high waisted fashion came into the picture. I love how nowadays more and more fashion is made for curvy women who don’t wear size 4, I’m a size 10. I think more women are beginning to celebrate there bodies and companies are finally paying attention.
The fact that the word “curvy” is now used in describing a line or collection of clothing makes me happy. I like Walmart’s selection because they are affordable and they usually come in a few other colors, so I can grab more than one pair. A higher waist is a plus because you can rock a crop top, tuck the shirt in and have a polished look in in the end. I found the top at TJ Maxx, it’s a pastel pink color with crotchet design. It hangs off the shoulder and adds a feminine and sexy feel to the outift. I wore the shoes in a recent post with a rolled up leg jean style, I think they look great with skinny jeans as well. This is one trend I’m happy to see make a come back from “mom jeans” status to a more trendy, flattering jean style. I personally hope the style stays around for as long as possible. What are some of your favorite jean styles?
Enjoy the rest of the week!
