We all remember our teenage, absolute-favorite-pair of jeans we practically lived in. For me, that was a pair of boot-cut, semi-skinny, distressed PacSun jeans that were “discontinued” and I genuinely convinced myself I would stunt growth to make sure I never outgrew them. Needless to say, I’m pretty sure I was in 8th grade when I got my first pair of skinny jeans. Wowza. How time flies.
I guess my not-skinny-jean love hit a nostalgic note on Old Navy’s clearance rack this summer because I pretty much stole this pant for a whopping $6. Sometimes you gotta just break the bank and bring the flare back 😉
I love the dark wash and am pretty blown away by how classy they can look. Paired with a hand-me-down sweater and the classic black choker we all love so much- I’m coming for you autumn. Something tells me history is about to repeat itself with these not-skinny-jeans.
Can’t wait to see what sweater weather love all you ladies will be breaking out of this summer heat in!

Next up, my perfect baby sister for the win. A couple years ago she bought these insanely cute patterned pants at Macy’s, and ever since then, every time she wears them, I just die a little. SO. CUTE.
The dark floral pattern makes it one of those iconic “can go either way” staple items that every closet needs. I’ve seen her wearing these on a spring/summer evening, but also in the fall for the deep, rich colors. Everyone needs that one trusty pair of statement pants anyway, right?
Also- when is it not shoulder season?? Anna paired the classic patterned pant with a soft pastel, off-the-shoulder top and with a simple swipe using some of her favorite lip gloss. And let me tell you- home girl knows. her. stuff.
Anna turned me on to this lip gloss not just because we both got a good giggle out of the “punny” name, but because man does that stuff work! Your lips will feel like you just kissed a cinnamon stick for a few minutes, but soon enough- puckerful lips in a pinch.
Scroll on down and catch all the glossy deets friends- and Hello Fall!
