Do you all love Kendra Scott as much as I do? I’ve been wearing her jewelry for years. Her line was first introduced to me via the blogger web almost 9 years ago. I think probably when her signature Rayne and Elisa necklaces became popular. At first I bulked at the price, but as she grew more popular, just like name brands such as Kate Spade and Tory Burch, you can always find a deal! And now I never pay full price. And still love her brand just as much. Nordstrom and the Kendra Scott website are probably my go-to for sales. It seems her pieces go on sale frequently. And while my Rayne necklaces are a thing of the past, I still love them.
My local mall in Sarasota recently opened a Kendra Scott store. Of course I was star-struck by all the new pretty pieces! My husband was with me and must have stuck with him also, because he gave me this necklace for Valentine’s Day. It comes in 3 beautiful color options. I love the berry color the best since we live in a temperate climate, but the other colors are fantastic for fall & winter. All 3 colors would pair with about any outfit.
Now lets talk jeans. I’ve been on the hunt lately for affordable jeans for work. No significant amount of distressing is a must (and absolutely no holes). Is it weird that sometimes that’s hard to find in brands these days? I have quite a few Joe’s jeans that are great for work, but I can’t afford premium denim very often, and I’ve really wanted some lighter jeans that don’t break the bank.
So many bloggers rave and rave about AE jeans. I’ve shopped at AE here and there for cardigans and tops over the years, but I always feel so old (lol) whenever I walk into a store that I basically stick to online shopping. However, the jeans I’ve just never given much thought about since I’m unfamiliar with sizing (at least since I hit 30 six years ago! ha!). I finally got over it though and purchased a couple pairs when they had a BOGO 25% sale.
Verdict? I’m a happy girl! I get it now. Their waistband? Super stretchy. So they stay comfortable at work. They don’t stretch out throughout the day, and super affordable. The pair I’m wearing below are only $40 original price, and today on sale for 30% off. I’m wearing an 8Short. I usually wear size 28/6 in most brands, but since these are listed as a ‘jegging’ I went up one size. I honestly think I could go either way. As I’m writing this post I’ve been wearing them for several hours and they haven’t stretched out really at all. Still comfortable and not sagging. So I figure if they shrink a little in the wash, yay – but if not, no biggy. The waistband is very comfortable and I love that I’m not being ‘pinched’ in the waist like some jeans tend to do (I carry my weight around the stomach). As far as the length goes, I’m wearing a ‘short’ inseam – they are still a smidge long, but no means a deal breaker. I imagine they will shrink a tad in the wash. I would recommend a short inseam for anyone 5’4″ and under (I’m 5’2″) – if you are tad taller then I, these will likely fit you really well. I figure I’ll roll them come summer also! I also ordered a white pair (here).
