Stripe Top + Boyfriend Jeans
Alright, I tried them again. THIS time, I actually did wear this outfit all day without changing to my skinnies. Yay for progress!
Yes, the boyfriend jeans are back, and this time I styled them with ankle boots and this great little striped bateau top from Old Navy.
This top is currently on sale for $24, and you can get an additional 20% off thru end of day today (9/20) if you click on that deal at the bottom of the page. That brings it down to just $19. For that price, you may want two! In addition to this navy with red stripes, it also comes in white with navy stripes as well as a solid grey heather and a solid fir green.
I love that it has a straight hem, and the length is nice for leaving untucked. The side slits are a nice detail, and even though it has a dropped shoulder, it doesn’t seem to add bulk like some do.
Usually the rule of thumb with boyfriend jeans is to wear something more fitted on top but I don’t like things too tight through my waist because I tend to carry a little extra weight there, so this top is perfect. It has some shape to it without being clingy. For size reference, this is a small.
I’m cuffed my jeans twice this time instead of once, as pictured on the website. I feel like this is a better length for wearing with the booties. When I wore my slides, the single cuff was fine because they have a much lower shaft. You can see that outfit HERE if you missed it or want to reference it for any reason.
These boyfriend jeans are slimmer than some, and I really like the cut — especially the rear view. Most boyfriend jeans make me look wide and flat, but these actually have a nice shape to them, and the slimmer cut overall is slenderizing.
They’re spendy so I linked to a few other options in the widget at the end of the post, but I can’t vouch for how they fit. The LOFT ones are 40% off, though, so definitely worth a try!
SALE ALERT >> Bloomingdale’s is having a Buy More, Save More sale, and I rounded up some of my favorites on my Facebook page. These are definitely big ticket items, but I know some of you have been holding out for them. It ends today, so you’ll need to act fast if you want to take advantage of it. I was shocked to see that the Tory Burch Miller sandals and Minnie travel flats were included, plus a bunch of her gorgeous bags. Also Stuart Weitzman is included, and a lot of premium denim is on sale.
Also, Nordstrom is having a Triple Points event thru Sept 24. They should price match the Bloomingdale’s sale if you ask, but not everything is marked on the site. It has to be the exact item, color and all to qualify. You can always hop on the live chat and ask after you put things in your cart.
I carried my Lucky Brand bucket bag in the brindle color because I love how it coordinates with the ankle boots and the casual vibe works well with this outfit. It’s on sale at Amazon right now.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the fall outfit she’s styling today.
