Happy Sunday, beautiful!!! I hope your weekend was nothing but fabulous! I am currently sitting at a Starbucks wrapping up this post that I’ve been longing to share. If you love the idea of sporting a good chic outfit on the weekend, I think you’ll love tonight’s look.
If you follow me on Instagram then you know I shared a few favorite #blackfriday sales. I want to believe we scored on a few things, and yes, that actually means I’ve been online stalking a few purchases. So far, so good! It was during this adventure that I found key items I was looking for. We have an upcoming trip to NYC this month so I definitely needed jeans with no holes. And bingo. I found the perfect pair.
If you are a fresh face to mrsprofresh, then you probably don’t know my struggle with finding jeans that actually fit me. Not long ago, I came around the idea of tailoring jeans that I love but not necessarily fit me. Mind-blowing, right? No, not really. I am not sure why I hadn’t thought of that before. Perhaps, convenience? Anyway, my hope has been restored in one retailer – Express. The reason I did not buy jeans from Express was because I always thought their sizes ran a little too big. But on that faithful, Black Friday night, everything changed.
I had every intention of finding cute and cozy sweaters at Express. Little did I know I would end up falling in love with their denim. ALL THE DENIM. It was hard choosing, even more so because I did not know my size. After trying on a few sizes/styles, I found the perfect fit! I could not be more excited, which brings us here, sharing my finds with you.
If you begin to peep the girl wearing this combo from head to toe, you may begin thinking, “Oh…what a cute outfit”. But wait, there’s more. You get to her shoes and realize she is wearing killer booties. Ah, but hold on, you cannot miss that black pleather jacket. And suddenly, you realize she isn’t a basic grinch.
The above links are to each exact item pictured. Since I bought the black studded booties a few years ago, I went ahead and found similar styles. Ladies, seriously, I get compliments each time I wear them. I highly recommend this style bootie if you want to turn any basic outfit into a chic one. Below are a few options, ranging from low to high in price.
- Forever 21 – I would say this pair resembles mine to the T! And this is where I actually purchased them from a few years ago.
- Forever 21 – This pair comes in three colors and I’m not mad about it. Peep the camel option, so cute!
- DSW – Ok, this pair is on sale right now! It comes in two colors. The black pair is faux suede and the nude pair comes in faux leather! I LOVE THE NUDE OPTION.
- Macy’s: Vince Camuto – If you haven’t tried a pair of Vince Camuto’s, then let me tell you, they are comfortable shoes! As I get
olderwiser, I tend to lean towards spending a little more money for quality shoes. Anyone feel me on that? These babies also resemble my pair to the T. The heel is much lower so I can bet they are comfortable to wear all day! Oh…and looky there…they’re on sale!
Well, that is it for tonight. Hope you enjoyed! Only 23 more days until Christmas!!! AHHH!!!!! Like where does time go? Is this what happens when you get wiser? LOL!
Wishing you a productive, peaceful, and graceful week. Thank you for reading.
