Do you have a favorite brand of jeans? I'm always curious to hear what brands people have found to fit them best. I have a few brands in my closet right now that I turn to on a regular basis...I love my Always Skinny Gap jeans, my American Eagle jeggings are super comfy, I have some Banana Republic Skinny jeans from a few years back that I still grab every now and again, and I am a huge fan of my J Crew Factory Toothpick ankle denim (the retail version doesn't fit as well I think...weird). However, my all-time favorite jeans are the AG Stevies Ankle leggings. I love them! I have them in 4 colors now, they're that good. I wish I could find them in a dark denim! I've only ever seen them come in the regular length in the dark denim which is too long on my shorty legs. I need them in an ankle length to make them work for me.
The AG's are made from the most soft, wearable denim ever. They are fabulous. The downside, however, is the hefty price tag. I've only ever paid full-price for one pair...I've been able to score the rest at around half-off or more. I just can't stomach full price on a regular basis for these. When I saw Piperlime carried a few new colors of the my beloved AG's a few months back, I started stalking the site for a deal on the gorgeous "Sulfur Sun" light yellow color. I had been saving up a bunch of my rewards points for something special and finally I was ready to pull the trigger. Then they sold out of my size. So sad. My size always sells out of everything first, I swear! I checked back a few times to see if there had been a restock...no such luck. A few weeks passed, and I decided to check again. Low and behold they had ONE pair in stock. Woo hoo! With a discount code and my rewards points in hand I pounced on that one pair and was so happy to receive them at my front door step a few days later.
I pulled them out this week for the first time and paired them with a very neutral color top to stick with a pastel color palette. You know me though, can't go ALL pastel. I threw in something bright at my feet just for fun:

Tell me what your favorite brand of denim is...I'd love to hear!
Before I go, I thought I'd leave you with a little something sweet to get the weekend started:
Raspberry Cream Pie
I made this for a "Pie Party" I went to the other night. It was SOOOOO good, if I do say so myself. The recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman...she rocks. Just in case you feel the need to make one too, you can find the step by step instructions and recipe HERE. No pressure. =)
Have a great weekend!
