I Finally Caved

I finally did it guys - I caved, and picked up my first pair of non-skinny jeans. This millennial still highly prefers the more tailored and slimming look of skinny jeans, but had fun taking my first pair of boyfriend jeans out for a spin to go to dinner the other night. I chose this pair because they weren't super baggy in the waist area, and I liked the distressed look and that they were cuffed which pairs great with heels, sandals, or a comfy pair of sneaks. 

On Tuesday last week, we took the day off for my birthday and headed out to the beach. We lucked out with beautiful weather, played in the waves, and grabbed some lunch on the water. Just what I needed to melt away some stress mid-week. Oh and a box of Crumbl Cookies on the way home - YUM!

And speaking of birthdays, I received the sweetest surprise in the mail from Andrea. So many fun goodies, and she even included a pack of stickers for Lil' Miss who noticed them immediately and squealed!

  2. I need to try another pair of jeans too. Yours look really cute on you!

  3. they are great jeans on you and I like the bright heels with them! I tried boyfriend jeans a while back - too tricky for me being petite, I stick with skinny or straight legs mostly!

    Hope your week is going well! It's a cold one here for the last few days of winter!

  12. You look adorable in these non-skinny jeans! I know, I know- it's tough to break out of the skinny jean mold, but I have been liking slouchier styles as of late. That doesn't mean my skinnies are out- I still love 'em!

  13. Oh Gen Z would be proud lol! I wear skinny jeans in the winter to work as they are warm and you can put leggings over them (for warmth) but I have stepped away from them for a while and have embraced wide leg and lose fit jeans. These look great on you and love how you styled them! It is still warm enough to got the beach here too.
