Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same.
Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.

Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three times back and forth trying to decided because I liked them both so much. Ultimately I went with the Tighter Tummy Essential Stretch Boot Jean.

I'm lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work but I prefer to dress them up a bit to keep the overall look professional and the length of the boot cut (32.5 inch inseam) works really well for me at 5'10 with heels. I also find darker wash jeans to be dressier. The tighter tummy technology of these jeans adds a little bit of shaping in the front and I'm in love with the way the fit hugs my curves in the back. I am currently between sizes so I sized down to the 20. My philosophy with jeans is that they should be a little snug in the dressing room since they will relax with wear and sure enough by the time I took these pics the fit felt perfect! 

I've also been on the prowl for a utility jacket - classic pieces with feminine details are the cornerstone of my wardrobe so I had to snag the ruffle-front anorak jacket; It's less formal than a blazer but still adds structure. The woven ruffle-hem hacci top adds a little more feminine detailing and I finished the look with delicate jewelry - the 60 in necklace with CZ and mini resin huggie circle earrings. I'm wearing the 18/20 in both the top and jacket. The jacket has a drawstring insert around the waist so it can be cinched making the fit adjustable.

On the weekends I can easily swap the top for a graphic tee and the heels for flats or sneakers and get a completely different look - which is pretty much my favorite thing to do with clothes.

There's literally so many great jean options that I just didn't have the time to try on everything to show them here so I'd love to see you on Saturday to help you find you best fitting denim and show you some fun styling ideas for dressing up or dressing down your jeans. All denim will be 40% off during the event and every purchase comes with a free pair on panties. In addition to giving some style tips we'll have giveaways at 2:30pm, 3pm, 3:30pm and 4pm. If you're in Memphis I would love to see you at the Country Crossing location in Cordova (off Germantown Parkway in front of Ikea) but if you're in a different city I hope you'll visit your local store for this event.

***This post is in partnership with Lane Bryant who generously provided me the outfit featured in this post, all items were selected by me in reflection of my personal style. Lane Bryant is a company I have spent my own money with and will continue to do so as I find the product quality to be a great value for the price points***

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Anti Aging High vs Low Review

I recently received the Iconic Edition of the Sephora Play Box (read my review here) and one of the products I was most excited to try out was Crème de La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream because well it's super famous and also hella expensive so of course I wanted to know what's the big deal. The .24 oz sample included was enough for about two week's use - so a one ounce jar would last about 2 months. About a week in as I was getting ready in the morning I starting noticing that my skin did indeed look different - I looked clearer and under my eyes my lines looked a little softer and my circles less dark. I took this selfie to document my skins look - because #vain - plus I knew I would need it for this longer review. I think there's still room for improve with my skin's texture but it had only been a week.
My problem was that a month's supply - the .5 oz jar - is $85 and while that might not seem bad to some it is in major conflict with my goal of being fina…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Date Box - Sushi Making

Happy Monday friends! Let's start the week with something exciting - A GIVEAWAY! Y'all know I love subscription boxes and the most fun of the ones I receive is Date Box. Date Box puts together a fun date night idea and sends all the supplies right to our door. Confession - I have a stack of four boxes we haven't used. Honestly - space has been an issue but all of that will change soon as we move ot our new house. AND, since we'll be focusing on furnishing our home having a back log of boxes (ie dates without spending money) will be really nice. This month the folks at Date Box included a gift card for a free box to giveaway so checkout my instagram to enter.   But first, let me show you our most recent box:
This month's date is a sushi making night and includes the materials needed to make the sushi and a shopping list for the fresh ingredients. One thing I really like about Date Box is that it gives you great ideas that you could repeat by using the included too…

What’s in the bag : Toiletry Essentials to Pack for Your Next Trip

I’ve  been traveling so much lately so I’ve pretty much got packing down to a science. Planning for a trip can be stressful so I’m here to make it a little easier for you and talk about the necessities, today were specifically talking about what’s in the toiletry bag. As a special treat I have teamed up with Smile Brilliant for a giveaway at the end of this post!!! When thinking about necessities I first think about the things I don’t need - hotels always have shampoo, conditioner and a hairdryer so I never bring my own to save space.  I then think about what items I use at home that I can go without for the week vs. what I use everyday. I also try to think about  products that are good for multipurpose; facial oil is a great example as I use it for a makeup remover at night , a moisturizer in the morning and I also use a small amount on the ends of my hair. Through this I’ve been able to narrow it down to only ten items.
1. Hairbrush

2. Deodorant

3. Toothbrush

4. Toothpaste

5. Facia…
