This super cozy sweater dress is definitely bringing the Christmas spirit to life! Here in Texas, we are still having hotter days and colder nights, but every now and then a much needed cold winter day approaches and I jump at the opportunity to wear my  sweaters…particularly this sweater dress! Sweater dresses have been a huge staple this year and I cannot get enough of them. Beyond how adorable they are, one of my favorite things about this sweater dress is how warm it is. I am soo cozy every time I wear this dress, and it honestly feels like I am just wearing a blanket! I decided to pair this sweater dress with some adorable black wedge booties. I have not loved these type of booties in the past, but they have grown to love them through the years…especially these. Lastly, I want to mention my lip color! I am wearing this shade from Colourpop and LOVE it soo much. This winter I have been drawn to a deep red shade and echo park is just that! Also, this shade by Colourpop is another one that I am loving for this time of year!

Today’s look is based around these gorgeous boyfriend jeans! I have been in the market for some flattering boyfriend jeans for a while now, but have had a lot of trouble finding a pair that fit just right. I had in mind that the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans would be the ones that fit slightly baggy, still have a flattering shape to them and have support in all the right places. These above were seriously meant to be considering the crazy way I came across them. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my aunt had these pair of brand new boyfriend jeans (tags and all) that she was not happy with for herself. As soon as she showed us these jeans and asked if anyone wanted them, my sister, mom and I jumped up and wanted to try them immediately. My mom tried them first and…too tight. Then, my sister was next and…too small. Lastly, I took my turn (which honestly felt like the shoe fitting of Cinderella by this point) and…PERFECT FIT! Crazy right!? What makes these boyfriend jeans perfect, is the slightly loose fit, flattering shape and the support in all of the right places…everything I was looking for! I know how hard it can be to find the right pair of boyfriend jeans (well lets be real, any pair of jeans) so I listed 5 of my personal tips that I like to use when searching for that perfect pair of denim (particularly boyfriend jeans). I hope these tips help and make jean shopping a little easier!

5 TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR PERFECT PAIR OF BOYFRIEND JEANS

  1. Try on lots of different sizes: This might seem like a no brainier, but you may be surprised how different boyfriend jeans fit than your normal boot cut or skinny style. Boyfriend jeans tend to fit bigger from the knee down and more true to size from the thigh area up. This said, grab lots of sizes…you never know what size you will like the best.
  2. The denim wash matters: Trying different shades of boyfriend jeans is actually more important than you might think. Darker denim in my opinion tends to create the illusion of a slimmer look while lighter denim accentuates the legs making them pop! Personally, my favorite type of denim is a darker wash however, these lighter wash jeans really accentuated the length of my legs making me like them more than I would have if they were darker!
  3. Holes or no holes?: I am normally not one to wear lots of holes in my jeans so these are considered a lot of holes for me! Don’t get me wrong I think holes in jeans are super cute and flattering however, I have always found that on me, minimal holes look best. With these jeans, I actually love how the “holey” style looks on me and will consider trying more like these! I have tried on boyfriend jeans with no holes before and honestly did not find them as flattering as these are. Don’t be afraid to jump out of your comfort zone and try a “holey” or “not so holey” look! It might surprise you!
  4. Don’t be afraid to roll them: When I first tried these jeans on, I was honestly not impressed with how they looked until I rolled them. Y’all, it seriously made all the difference. Rolling your denim gives a more casual, feminine feel. Give it a try!
  5. Patience: Patience is key. I have been searching for the right pair of boyfriend jeans for months now and happened to stumble on my favorite pair in the craziest way! Trust me, I know how frustrating it is to try on what seems like 500 pairs of jeans just to tell the dressing room employee that none of them worked and that they have to fold all of those jeans back…lol. Don’t give up, you will find YOUR perfect pair of boyfriend jeans in no time.

 

Hopefully after these 5 tips, you feel more confident in getting dressed and rushing to the store to grab your 500 pairs of boyfriend jeans to try on! Or you have a better idea of what to look for when shopping for them, so after pair number 2, you have yourself the cutest pair boyfriend jeans that you love!

I would love to know if these tips helped you! Let me know in the comments below!

It is getting close to Christmas and I am soo ready! Christmas is my favorite holiday with gift giving, dessert making (cough* cough* puppy chow), and especially all of those beautiful lights! This Christmas, I am so excited to share with y’all this gorgeous JORD watch that makes for the perfect gift for everyone. JORD watches are very unique in that they are all made entirely of wood! These watches come in many womens or mens styles, different types of wood, and a variety of faces. What I love so much about this watch is the amazing quality and of course the color!! The rose gold details add a perfect classy look that literally matches everything! I now pair this watch with all of my OOTD’S and is definitely a new staple piece to my accessories.

Moving on to this look! I have been loving cheetah print this season and also olive green! (Quick story: I was in H&M and tried on soo many outfits…I ended up with a sweater dress, two sweaters, and a pair of denim. Guess which color three of the four were?? Olive green! I did not even notice until I got home that I bought the same color of all the outfits I tried on). All of this to say that I have been gravitating to olive green this season! haha! Anyway, I loved the look of the two olive green shades against each other and added the cheetah scarf to break it up a little. Also, this floppy hat is seriously the cutest. I have NEVER worn hats…not because I don’t like them, but just because I never thought to try one on! I have definitely been missing what all the rage was about them and wished I had tried them sooner! If you are someone who never thought to wear a floppy hat, go try one on! You will love them! Lastly, the star of the outfit…My JORD watch! EEP! Y’all, like I mentioned above, I am obsessed with this watch and wear it constantly. If you need the perfect gift idea for him, her, or even yourself…This one will be the one you will remember and rave about to all of your friends and family! I promise!

Hey y’all! Happy Monday! I am super excited for today’s post because we are talking all about white teeth! I have been obsessing over teeth whitening kits for a while now and was soo excited to try out smile Sciences. A little bit of background on Smile Sciences is that they are a cruelty free, vegan, and environmentally friendly company! Also, all of their products are specifically made for us sensitive folks, which is a must have for me when using any kind of teeth whitening product. Moving on, I am really impressed with how easy this kit is to use. When I first opened the box, it was kind of overwhelming to see all of the parts and pieces that go together in order for you to use it however, the directions on the back of the box was soo easy to understand. From the molding of the retainers, to the exact amount of gel you need to use, is all listed on the back of the box with step by step instructions. After using this kit once, I was already able to see a whiter smile which was shocking to me! I am planning on using this kit daily to achieve my super white smile and then maintain it with the whitening pen that is included in the kit! So far, I am very impressed with Smile Sciences and will definitely keep you updated on how well it continues to work!

If you would like to purchase your own Smile Sciences kit, you can use my coupon code “KAITLYN9” to get the kit for $29! (Regularly $299)  HERE

Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and got lots of candy! I loved seeing all of the pics on Instagram of the costumes this year! Too cute! Konnor had to work this Halloween and my dad was also out of town so my mom and I decided to have a girls night and have our Halloween night at a local sushi restaurant! It was also a gloomy, rainy night which was a bummer for all of those trick or treater’s but sure enough as we were almost home, our neighborhood was filled with cars of princesses and superheros jumping out and running up to each house! It was soo sweet to see parents making light of an unfortunate rainy situation and making darn sure that their child got some candy! Haha!

 

Ok, Moving on to this festive look! I am a sucker for a good slouchy sweater. I cannot count how many I have already and actually just bought a few more…Oops! Slouchy sweaters are my ideal fall and winter staple because of how comfy AND cute they are! This season, ruffles on sweaters have been more popular and that is a trend that I am LOVING. Any sweater with a ruffle, is a sweater that is in my cart! I found this sweater above, at T.J. Maxx a while ago, but linked a couple very similar ones that come in many colors! Completing this look, I added these bright red Hunter boots which is honestly one of my favorite purchases ever! When I first saw Hunter rain boots, I was obsessed with how cute they were but did not have a clue which color to go with! If you do not have Hunters, you might not know how many colors they come in OR that they come in two types of finishes…Glossy and matte! I knew that I could either play it safe and choose a natural color (black, green, cream etc. ) or go all out and get a fun color (red, pink, Tiffany blue, etc.). I ended up choosing the bright red with a glossy finish and I love them so much I want more! I believe that adding pops of color like these boots, adds character to your look and can really complete your outfit! Another pop of color I like to add to my looks are blanket scarves! Normally, I would not spend $22 on a scarf BUT these scarves come in many patterns, great quality and are such cute accessories to add to any outfit! I would say these two pops of color are definitely worth the splurge!
