I recently picked up a few pairs of black skinny jeans, and I have no idea how I’ve managed this long without them!

They’re definitely easy to wear…very versatile too!  Black jeans can go from casual to super sexy in no time.  Here I’m wearing them with a bright vintage sweater, but last Saturday I wore a pair with a white button up and some killer heels for my brother’s birthday.  It was the perfect look for a night on the town!

The BEST Place To Find Jeans

The BEST Place To Find Jeans

Finding the perfect pair of jeans has always been such a challenge for me.  In fact, when I do find I great pair, I never let them go.  I actually still have a pair of flared jeans from high school that I wear every now and then!

The BEST Place To Find Jeans

If you know me, then you probably aren’t surprised that I get most all my jeans from thrift stores.  Besides for finding pretty cool vintage styles, I can usually find all brands from Abercrombie to Joe’s to Paper Denim & Cloth.

Other fabulous reasons to thrift your next pair (or two!) or jeans…

  • You have access to tons brands in one store.
  • There are no sales people bothering you.
  • It’s much cheaper than paying retail!  I grabbed this black skinny pair for less than $2!!
  • Prices this low mean that you can experiment with a little D.I.Y. without worrying about destroying an expensive pair of jeans.
  • If you’re lucky, you can find a pair of jeans that are already broken in.
  • You might even be introduced to a new brand that you never thought to try out before!

The BEST Place To Find Jeans

The jeans that I’m wearing here are J.Crew.  I would have never thought to shop at J. Crew for my jeans.   This pair is sold at retail price for $115.  I found them at Savers for about $110 less than that.  Pretty amazing…right?!

What are your favorite places to shop for jeans?  Have you ever tried the thrift store?

3 Tips For Getting Confidence From Your Outfits

My husband is in the midst of a makeover.  I think after all these years, I’m finally rubbing off on him!

On Saturday, a group of us went out to Boystown for my brother’s birthday.  My husband, who is usually dressed in his contractor gear, actually put some thought into his outfit for the night – with a little help from me.  And I do have to say that he looked pretty good.  So good that throughout the night he was getting a decent amount of glances from the public.

He LOVED it.

The extra attention was just what he needed to confirm that his hard work at the gym has been paying off.  And, it proved to him that I’m not as crazy as he thought when I take that extra step or two to make myself presentable.

There is just something so powerful about wearing a fabulous outfit.  It’s basically guaranteed to boost your confidence and makes you happier.

Getting your outfits to help you get that extra confidence is actually pretty easy to do!

  • Have your closet stocked with clothes and shoes that make you feel special when you wear them.
  • Wear only clothes that flatter your body.  Having a trusted tailor can help you get that perfect fit.
  • Get dressed everyday thinking that you’re going to run into someone you know…like your boss, an old friend, or even an ex.

And a few other “things” to keep in mind…

  •  Keep up with personal maintenance!  Get regular hair cuts.  Trim your nails.  Use an exfoliant.  It will make a world of a difference!

Navy is a fabulous color!  It looks so complementary with many skin tones and hair colors.  Plus, it’s really easy to mix and match with things that you already have in your closet.
