I’ve said this a million times and I’ll say it again – jeans are the hardest things to shop for! Why is it SO difficult to find a decent pair? It’s so frustrating! Luckily I have a few pairs that I love and fit me well but you can never have too many. It’s rare that I get this excited about a pair of jeans. The last pair I loved this much was from Banana Republic which I’ve worn way more than I care to admit. These ripped step hem skinny jeans are AMAZING and under $60!
One of the biggest issues I have with jeans is the waist gap and baggy crotch. Two things I cannot stand and it seems to be my biggest issues when finding the perfect fit. I’m wearing size 24 and these run true to size. The waist is a little loose and I found myself pulling them up throughout the day but if I think if I add a belt, it should be fine. My favorite part about these jeans besides the affordable price tag is the fit through the thighs and legs. They’re very slimming and not too tight – my legs don’t feel like sausages. 🙂
The color and distressing on these jeans are on point! I was so happy that the hole on the left leg hit ON my knees instead of below. This is so RARE (especially for jeans that aren’t designed for petites) so clearly I’m excited about it. LOL
I was a little skeptical about the frayed step hem and 28″ inseam but I approve. The back part is a bit long and I may trim off a little length or continue to fry them in the dryer (not sure yet). I’ll see how much the length shrinks after a few washes.
Why oh why would I torture my closet with yet another stripe top? I told myself no more stripes and then this happens. This ruffle sleeve top is so cute however it’s very boxy. It comes in several different colors and available in regular/petite sizes. I’m wearing XXSP and was surprised how wide it is. Usually Halogen runs small so I was a bit confused by the fit. Nonetheless, I love it. I also saw a similar top HERE that looks pretty promising.
Halogen ruffle sleeve top (xxsp) // BP. ripped step hem skinny jeans (24) // Gucci soho disco bag // Steve Madden claara block sandals (similar HERE) // Tory Burch sunglasses (similar HERE) // c/o Ily Couture Juliet necklace (similar HERE) // Pink nail polish // YSL lipstick in fetish pink // kate spade earrings (similar HERE) // Hair wand used for waves
So basically you need these jeans and this ruffle sleeve top. Also, the dupe to my Steve Madden Claara block heel sandals are now on sale HERE!
On a side note, I just ordered a few things from ModCloth that I wanted to share. This floral skirt and mint off the shoulder sweater should be arriving this week – so excited. If you love polka dots as much as I do, how amazing is this Friends Over Pho midi skirt? I just saw it this weekend and think I need it in my life plus the name alone is hilarious! I’ve also been coveting this nautical one piece swimsuit and this colorblock scallop suit for so long. They both are calling my name so I may have to order both. 🙂
