Hello hello hello! How’s everyone doing on this fine Thursday? Things are going pretty well around the Hodges house. We’re fiiiinally starting to feel settled in the new place. There’s still some stuff to do, like hanging curtains and what not, but we’re at least unpacked and know where all of our belongings are at, haha. But I will say that we’ve had an extra set of hands on deck so that’s been super helpful. My mom has been so sweet to come up here for the last two and a half weeks and do everything that she’s done for us. She’s headed back home today so, yesterday, we had a girls day and got our nails done and did some shopping. 😉 Had to make sure she got to do something a little fun before she headed home, hehe.
I was super lucky to get to try out UNIQLO’s new denim from this season-their 24-Hour Denim. I always like to disclose when I receive a complimentary item, but more importantly I like to disclose times like these when I’m not required to write a blog post or share it on social media. But when a brand that I already wear and love lets me try out a new product that I (go figure) end up loving and wearing, I think it’s worth a share! Anyways, point being-I loved the denim and I’m not being paid to say that. 🙂
Seriously though, suuuuper soft and stretchy denim that actually holds its shape and doesn’t bag out (at least not yet)! AND, they’re a great price point-currently on promo for $29.90, normally $39.90! Definitely thinking of getting another pair, hehe. I’m wearing the high-rise cigarette jeans and I love them! I’ve never worn cigarette jeans before (or any cigarette fitted pant) so I’m really glad that I got to try these out! They’re like a hybrid between a skinny and a straight! You still get that slightly open ankle but a flattering, fitted jean everywhere else. These are the only pair of jeans that I own from UNIQLO, but they fit me true to size. I wear a size 26, for reference.
I wanted to style the jeans in a way that showcased how stylish a classic pair of jeans can be without going over the top so I wore a simple but fun striped satin cami, a pair of low-heeled white sandals, and a camel satchel. Aaand I wore my Bijoux by Catherine tan tassel earrings because they pulled the camel bag and subtle burgundy stripes in the tank top together. Plus, they’re the perfect statement earrings with your hair in a pony tail! 😉
Anyone else a UNIQLO fan? I feel like their underrated and need more love than they get! Regardless, I highly recommend checking out their new denim if you’re in the market for a new pair of jeans. Or, heck, even if you’re not! Haha. Hope you guys enjoyed the look today! I’ll see ya’ll back here on Sunday! Much love!
