High waisted pants

I felt like it was about time I put together a blog post about my favorite high waisted pants!  I fell in love with the high waisted style a few years ago and honestly can’t imagine wearing anything else.  I feel like they suck you in and are so flattering.  Now they’re pretty much all that I wear!


I fell in love with these WIDE LEG CORDUROY PANTS online but love them even more in person!  They’re so incredibly comfortable and are such a great fit.  I purchased the 32″ length option and I’m 5’5” — they’re perfect!

Ok, these VINTAGE LIGHT WASH JEANS are so good.  They would be so cute with a white t-shirt and white sneakers for a casual look.  They’re 40% off today with code ACTFAST!

The detail on these OLIVE HIGH WAISTED PANTS is everything and they’re on sale right now for only $21!  Such a steal deal.

If you know me, you know I love a good WIDE LEG jean and these ones are so cute!  This lunar wash is perfection.  Hurry to the site because they’re 40% off with code ACTFAST!

I love a pant with a little bit of flare and these CROPPED FLARE JEANS are even the best!  First, they’re from the Levi’s Ribcage collection which I LOVE and secondly, they’re cropped!  So good.

I have these WHITE WIDE LEG pants and wear them all of the time.  When I first bought them I thought I would have to be picky with what I paired them with but that’s not the case!  They work with everything.  These are crazy comfortable and on sale for 40% off with code ACTFAST!

These BLACK BUTTONED HIGH RISE PANTS are my go-to.  I especially love the button detail and they’re comfortable!  They’re 40% off as well so that’s a bonus!

These RIPPED STRAIGHT JEANS look so comfortable.  I love a good baggy jean that doesn’t make you look like you’re 400lbs and these are them!

I just bought these WEDGIE FIT JEANS and can’t wait for them to get here!  I’ve heard so many good things about these jeans and am excited to see what all of the hype is about.

I have these RIBCAGE STRAIGHT ANKLE JEANS and like I said before, I love Levi’s Ribcage Collection!  I have two pairs from this collection and am as equally obsessed.  They’re flattering and so comfortable!


Top 22 Cardigans

If you saw how many cardigans I had in my closet, I don’t know if you would be proud or embarrassed.  I LOVE a good cardigan. I can’t believe how many good ones there are this fall/winter. I swear a cardigan is what makes or breaks an outfit.  They are the best thing to add to any outfit that needs a little kick! The best part is that they are in style every year.



I scoured some of my favorite websites and found the best cardigans they have in stock this year!  I was blown away by how many cute ones there are.
