I want to talk about my favorite skinny jeans. For years I bought jeans from Express, but recently the fit and fabric haven’t been flattering. Finding jeans that fit well is a struggle. Do you have this dilemma? I have always liked the look of Lucky Brand jeans, but never owned any. Within the last year I stumbled upon a pair of Lolita skinny jeans on sale at Macy’s. Perfection!
The Lolita skinny style fits my body shape very well and are made with quality fabric (easy care too). Lucky describes this style of jeans as curvy fit through the hip and thigh, mid-rise. Since I am no longer in my 20s I prefer mid-rise. Mid-rise seems to fit my body better than low-rise jeans and as Lucky describes it, “provide[s] appropriate coverage when seated.” haha Amen! I am willing to bet my mom friends would like these jeans too since they are chasing after little ones and bending over to pick things up. It’s important to note these do not have any resemblance to “mom jeans.”
Lucky Brand jeans are on the pricier side at $99+, but if you can catch their jeans on sale it’s worth it. I ordered two new pairs at 50% off on Black Friday. The brand is running an end of season sale right now (limited time). You can receive up to 75% off sale styles.
I wanted to publish several posts before the year’s end, but with the blog makeover happening I decided to put them on hold until the design was complete. I am looking forward to 2017 and hoping the blog will be an even more creative space for me (I’ve already learned a few new things). Glad you’re here to take the journey with me! Don’t forget to follow at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and bookmark the new URL (www.lexiandlady.com).
Until next post…xoxo Becca
If you haven’t already noticed, the blog had a makeover! I have been wanting this for soooo long and as a Christmas/birthday present the hubs had it done. I like the clean modern look and hope you’re able to find your way around easily.
Not only did Lexi & Lady get a makeover visually, but it was migrated from a Blogger platform to WordPress. Being that I have never used WordPress I know it will take me awhile to figure things out. Please be patient with me while I learn the features. The update included a domain name (www.lexiandlady.com) so bookmark it! Another feature I added is the ability for my friends, family, followers to subscribe (see right column below archives). Again…still figuring all that out, but I would love for you to subscribe to stay even more connected 🙂 While I am talking about staying connected, make sure to “like” and “follow” Lexi & Lady’s new social media accounts. I love hearing from those who read so leave a comment, like a status, whatever you feel like doing.
Why the change? In my 2015 New Year Resolution I claimed 2015 would be my year and my focus would be on myself (physical, mental, emotional wellness). Turns out 2016 became the year that brought me a lot of that wellness and happiness I had been aiming for. The ability to enjoy time with the hubs and travel the world made me the happiest I can remember being in a very long time.
When I began thinking about my focus for 2017 I was at a loss. I’ve done and seen some pretty amazing things this year, how could it get any better? Then I realized that although it has been a fantastic year I still wanted to take my professional life and this blog one step further. About that time I came across this quote and instantly fell in love with it. This is my motto for 2017.
What is your New Year Resolution this year? I’d love for you to leave it in the comments below.
Until next post…xoxo Becca
