Gap Girlfriend Jean

I am a Gap jean girl through and through. Without a doubt, they fit me the best. I’m on the shorter side (5’3″) and am curvy in the waist and hips. My go-to size is a size 4 or 27. Depending on the silhouette, I wear regular or ankle length. Besides the fit, what I love most about Gap jeans is that the washes and style details are always on trend.

They are also high quality jeans that don’t break the bank! Do I love the high end labels with the soft fabrics and perfect washes?! Absolutely! But as a mom of two little ones, I don’t have a lot of extra $ to spend on myself. I still want to look cute though and wear the latest styles. So Gap prices allow me to buy a new style or two each season, without all the mom guilt!

Also, I’m lucky to work in an environment that is casual. And on most days you will find me in jeans and a top. My go-to style is the Skinny, ankle length. I probably have 5 or 6 different pairs of that style in all different washes. But when I’m not in the mood to wear skinny denim, or if I’m going for another look, my other go-to is the Girlfriend jean.

The Girlfriend jean is a more relaxed fit. It comes in a mid-rise that sits more at your hips than at the high point of your waist. It has an easy fit through the hips, thighs, and legs. Definitely not as tight as the skinny! I find the fit to be a perfect combination of relaxed but not sloppy. I love to wear my Girlfriend jeans with tees, blouses, sweaters….really any type of top. Tops look great tucked in or out. The jeans also look great with so many shoe options: sandals, flip flops, sneakers, booties….so versatile!

Here is the latest pair I picked up (shown in photo). They are a medium wash with a little bit of destruction, but not too much, so I can still wear them to work πŸ™‚ Currently on sale AND another 50% off! That comes to less than $22! Crazy! Shop here (affiliate links)

Loft 50% off Summer Favorites

A few weeks ago, I stopped by my local loft for a try-on session and found some amazing styles of dresses and even a jumpsuit that I loved!

Over the years, I have relied on Loft for great quality dresses. Casual, dress-up, short, long, they have them all!

Embroidered Top from Amazon

This is the first season I’ve shopped for apparel and fashion items on Amazon and I’m definitely on the Amazon bandwagon! This embroidered blouse is one of my favorite items I’ve picked up so far. The bright embroidery pattern is perfect for summer. The ruffle sleeves give a feminine look to the blouse. And the looser fit will be extra comfortable in the warmer weather. This top will be a show stopper for both casual looks or if you want to be a little more dressed up with jeans, heels, or wedges. I’m really loving both looks with my white denim, though it would also pair great with regular denim or colored shorts or pants. (commission links)

Sleeveless Embroidered Pom Pom Blouse– Available in 5 colors and less than $23! I followed the sizing recommendation to size up one size, and it was definitely the right choice. I bought a size medium when I normally wear a small.
