Just Kidding...the hunt for the skinny jean continues...

So remember yesterday when I told you about those $15 Old Navy skinny jeans I found? Well, I decided to try them on AGAIN this morning...something just kept telling me I was trying to love them more than I should. I thought if I wore them around the house a bit I'd get a feel for if I really liked them. Low and behold 10 minutes into my trial period I decided they weren't for me. They don't stay where they should...the rise on them just isn't as flattering as they should be and overall I think they just don't fit like I thought they did in the fitting room. This all came from trying on those Gap cropped skinny jeans I ordered last weekend.....now those are cute! They were delivered and after I tried them on I realized the Old Navy ones just weren't fitting me the way they should. So back to the store they'll go and back to my search for the perfect skinny jeans. The Banana skinnies I ordered last week should be coming in the next week or so I think...maybe those will be "the one". Crossing my fingers!!! I guess you get what you pay for!

Today was a day of errand running...so I went casual. Here's my typical summertime mom uniform...jean shorts, tank and cardigan:

-Jean Shorts-Old Navy (2008)
-Sequin Tank-LOFT (Spring 2010)
-Open Cardigan-Express
-Sandals-American Eagle (OLD...like MANY YEARS AGO OLD!)
-Bracelet-Old Navy
-Ring-Charlotte Russe
-Gold Small Open Circle Necklace-Shabby Apple

As I was watching 3 hours worth of The Bachelorette tonight (I DVR'd it...what would life be without fast forward??) I noticed that LOFT's Friends and Family sale had already started (mignight EST I guess). I plan on heading to the actual store this week just to take a look but wanted to place an order of the things I was sure I wanted to pick up before things start selling out. Here are a few goodies I ended up grabbing:

I got this sweater in the Autumn Yellow color.

I picked this tank up in the mauve color.

I love this statement piece...hopefully it's cute on!!!

Along with the 30% discount their offering at LOFT right now, they're also giving away rewards cards again! For every $50 you spend, you get a $25 rewards card to use in the upcoming months. Love that! One more reason to shop at LOFT!

We're off to the zoo tomorrow with friends...might have to bust out some long sleeves again---the bay breeze can be chilly!!!

Have a good day!


  1. LOVE your Loft finds =) I'm gonna have to browse their sale items... discipline... discipline =)

  2. Hopefully the BR skinnies work for you. I agree you do get what you pay for. Love your Loft scores! And I love that sequin tank, it really dresses up your look!

  3. I wanted some things from Loft, but my sizes were already gone on pre-sale day :( I don't know that I'll make it to the mall to check things out, but the discount certainly makes it tempting to try! Love the pieces you picked up!

    I can't wait to hear how the BR jeans work for you, they are my faves, but jeans are SO different for everyone...

  4. Great items from the Loft sale!! I hope you find the perfect jean!
