My Must Have Jeans

I know that for many people, myself included, finding the perfect pair of jeans can be quite the struggle. If they fit your waist, there’s a good chance they don’t fit your thighs… at least that seems to be my problem! My body has changed over the past 4 years thanks to weight lifting. While I do love my legs, finding jeans that fit me in all the right places is still not easy.

Throughout most of my teenage years, low/mid rise jeans were what everyone was wearing. I’d say around 2016, high waisted jeans started to become trendy and everyone was wearing them again. It’s funny how certain trends always come back around eventually.

Since then, I have only been wearing high waisted jeans! I feel that they are incredibly flattering on most people, and they are very stylish as well. Today, I wanted to talk about 2 of my absolute favorite pairs of jeans. These 2 pairs of jeans are very different styles as well as very different prices! I want to let you all know that while denim can definitely be expensive, if you are on a budget, you don’t have to break the bank to find a great pair of jeans!

The first pair I want to talk about are the Skinny High Ankle Jeans from H&M (size 28). I purchased these jeans earlier this year for, get this… $10! I do not believe that this particular wash is still available online, however there are multiple shades! Now, I was skeptical at first because I knew that $10 jeans most likely meant that the quality was not great, but hear me out!

A couple of years ago, I remember buying a pair of high waisted skinny jeans from H&M, and I remember the fact that they were $10 because I still talk about it to this day. I thought that I had just found them on sale, but now I am pretty sure that H&M always has $10 jeans in their stores.  I do think that these jeans are made of a decent quality, but I can only hope that they will stand the test of time. I will let you all know if these jeans don’t last, but I seriously hope they do, at least for a while, because they are a steal! The jeans fit me perfectly, and I have no issues when wearing them! You can also style these jeans in a variety of ways (this is one of my favorite things about jeans). If you are on a budget, I highly recommended looking into H&M jeans because they are so comfortable and flattering. (If you do purchase these, keep in mind that this specific pair are ankle jeans, so if you’re on the taller side, this may not be what you are looking for! H&M has other jeans for $10, so I would check them out!)

Next, I want to talk about my all-time favorite jeans. These are the PacSun Terra Blue High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans (size 26). I bought these jeans for about $35, but they are originally around $60! I never really bought my jeans from PacSun before; partly because they are usually too expensive for me, but also because I really had no desire to go into this store. I came across these jeans while scrolling through Instagram a while back and I fell in love with them.

For all my ladies who lift, these jeans are going to change your life! As I mentioned, my legs have gotten a bit bigger from weight training. While I do love my body and the strength I’ve gained, it has made shopping a tad more difficult, but these jeans are truly a dream!

 I had never owned any straight leg jeans, and the laid back style is new to me, but it is safe to say that I am obsessed with it. Although I love skinny jeans, I am 100% certain that the straight leg mom jeans are taking its place. They are more comfortable than skinny jeans and you can dress them up or down. I personally think that these jeans look best when worn casually. I think that they flatter me very nicely as well.  I have a feeling that I am only going to buy this style from now on!

Since the jeans at this store are a bit pricey, I would try to find discount codes, and keep an eye out for any sales on their denim! If you sign up to receive emails from PacSun, you will get discount codes and exclusive offers, so I would check into that as well! If you are a student at a University like me, download the app called “UNiDAYS”. You simply put in your information based on the university that you attend, and you can start searching for deals on all of your favorite stores!

I’ve always felt that jeans should be a staple piece in everyone’s wardrobe because they are perfect for most occasions and everybody needs that one pair that fits them in ALL the right places (I know I’ve found mine)! If you haven’t found a pair that work for you, check out the stores I mentioned above, and hopefully you’ll find a new favorite in your price range! Thank you so much for reading! (You can now shop my looks directly from my website! If you click the item I mention, it will take you straight to the website to purchase the product)!

OOTD: Fluent in French

There are many things that come to mind when I think of Paris, however one of the biggest is, of course, fashion! While traveling to France over spring break, I purchased a few clothing items and I have been dying to share them with you! So, what better way to do that than an outfit of the day?

I have always been a very observant person, so in the midst of enjoying the beautiful buildings and attractions in Paris and Lyon, I obviously noticed what people were wearing. While some locals were dressed a bit more casually, I saw many who, in my mind, looked exactly how I expected them to look. Elegant, classy, and chic. The women looked very put together and stylish, and the same could be said for the men. French casual is VERY different from American casual, to say the least. By looking at the locals, shopping, and browsing through the boutiques, I found my inspiration for a Parisian outfit.

I want to start by talking about one of my newest obsessions. While shopping on the Champs Elysees, a few of the girls and I decided to stop by Zara. I know that this is a store I could shop at in America, but I do not believe there is a Zara near me! I can honestly say that I never imagined I’d be wearing a skort again, but here we are! This is the Buttoned Skort in Black. I fell in love with this the second I saw it. I knew I needed to have it. The button details as well as the hints of silver and gold are stunning. I bought this skort for €19.95 in a size small. This piece does not necessarily give off a “Parisian” vibe, however I HAD to include it in this outfit because I am so in love with it!

For my top, I wanted to wear something simple. I am wearing a black, cropped bustier top. I purchased this top from PacSun for about $35 in a size medium. I was debating whether or not to wear a white or a black top, but I ultimately decided that the black top looked best with this outfit!

And now, my favorite souvenir. One thing that I was searching for on my trip was a nice brown trench coat. When I think of French fashion, the first thing that pops into my head are trench coats. I really wanted this to be my biggest souvenir. The trip was almost over, and I had yet to find a trench coat in my price range. I found that many of the trench coats I was looking at were a little too pricey for my budget. While touring through Old Lyon, my friend and I decided to stop by a store called Pimkie, which I believe is the European equivalent to H&M. As soon as we walked in, I spotted a beautiful light brown trench coat. This coat is a bit thinner than the others that I found, which means it can be worn pretty much all year round. I paid €50.00 for this coat, and it is in a size small.

For my shoes, I decided to wear my black pointed toe ankle boots. I purchased these last fall from Forever 21.  I feel that these shoes were the perfect choice for this outfit because pointed toe shoes always look classy and the locals seemed to love ankle boots as well!

As for the accessories, I wanted to share the most important piece that completes this look: A black beret. Call me cliché, but I knew I couldn’t leave France without buying one… or two! I actually thought that the locals did not wear berets, and that it was a style that tourists took over. However, I actually saw quite a few of the locals wearing them!

Thank you so much for reading! I may not be fluent in French, but I am definitely fluent in French fashion! 😉

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you have probably had your outfit picked out weeks ago. If you have no idea what to wear, fear not! Today, I am going to be sharing four different outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day! Whether you are going on a date or heading off to class, one of these outfits should spark some V-Day inspiration!

Outfit #1:

Let’s start off with something fun. If you’re heading out for a date or a girls night, this outfit is for you! You can never go wrong with a little black dress. If you are a bit more bold and you prefer to wear more color, a red or pink dress would be beautiful as well! I chose black because I typically prefer more neutral colors, plus I get to have a bit of fun with my makeup and accessories this way! With this black dress, I thought that a simple pair of black block heels looked gorgeous. Lastly, I paired this outfit with a sequined clutch. (If I were going to wear this outfit, I would most likely do a natural eye look and a bold pink lip!)

Outfit #2:

This outfit is for those of you who may be working or going to a business casual event on V-Day. I absolutely love this outfit! I would wear this any day! For this look, I paired some black ankle pants with a long sleeved pink turtle neck. I have such a love for blazers, and I feel that blazers can instantly transform a look and give the outfit more of a professional vibe. I love the pattern of this blazer, and I think that it makes the outfit a bit more unique and stylish. For the shoes, I went with these black pointed toe ankle boots. These have been one of my latest obsessions, and I always find myself reaching for them.

Outfit #3:

This next outfit is for those of you who aren’t very girly or those of you who prefer a more casual look. For this outfit, I wanted to go for something simple. I paired a pink v-neck tee with a pair of dark high waisted jeans. I love white shoes, and I think that my white Stan Smith’s looked best with this outfit. I really like this look because it is very simple, yet by wearing pink you will still feel like you’re in the Valentine’s Day spirit! If pink is not your color, you could wear red or even purple! You could also throw on a neutral colored cardigan (such as black or gray) for a cozier feel.


Outfit #4:

This last outfit is most likely what I will be wearing (or at least something very similar). I love dressing up, but since I have no Valentine’s Day plans, I will most likely be going to class, going to work, and then spending the rest of my day at home. My style tends to change day to day, but for the most part, I love feminine or vintage-inspired pieces. For this look, I took this cropped white top with pink roses on it and put it over a black tank for layering. I am so obsessed with the bell sleeves on this top! I paired this piece with ripped high waisted jeans and simple black flats.

I hope that this post was helpful to you and that it gave you some Valentine’s Day inspiration! I had a lot of fun creating these 4 very different looks for you all. It’s funny, I feel like all of these outfits are very much my style. I would wear every single one (depending on the occasion of course)!

Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: Whirlwind Winter

Winter is in full swing but that won’t stop me from wearing dresses! Luckily where I live it doesn’t get absolutely freezing in the winter. Winters where I live usually look like 40-50 degree weather. Recently, I decided to check out one of my favorite stores, H&M. As I was shopping, I found this dress and quickly fell in love with it.

This dress is a part of the Richard Allan X H&M: Wearable Art collection and I purchased it for $18. I also saw a shirt with this same pattern at the store, but of course, I chose the dress. After doing a quick google search, I found that Richard Allan was a famous scarf designer during the swinging sixties in London. H&M describes the pieces in this collection as, “Abstract, avant-garde design in high-octane color.”

This dress is perfect for the winter time, and I love the unique pattern as well as the sleeves! It definitely reminds me of the sixties. My mother even described it as “hippie-ish”. The pattern is incredibly bold, so I like that the colors are more neutral (pink, gray, white, and black). I feel that this dress is perfect for most occasions and could be worn for anything from work to a girl’s brunch. I wore this dress for lunch with my family this past weekend. I am almost always overdressed, but at this point I’m so used to it!

I paired this dress with my black knee-high boots that I purchased a couple years ago from Charlotte Russe. As I have mentioned before, these are pretty much my go-to shoes in the fall/winter. Underneath the boots, I wore some knee-high socks to stay warm. Wearing knee-high socks also keeps the boots from slipping down my legs.

As for jewelry, I am wearing these beautiful gold fringe earrings and these two simple gold rings. These pieces were my mother’s but she let me have them a few years ago. I wear the two gold rings every day. Lastly, I wore a simple pair of black sunglasses that I purchased from H&M.

Thank you so much for checking out my newest blog post! I hope you’re all having an amazing day! Until next time!

OOTD: Christmas Eve

There is nothing more stunning than a red dress, especially during the holidays! Today I wanted to share a Christmas Eve OOTD (outfit of the day) with you all because I recently purchased the most beautiful dress.

This is the “Dance of Romance Red Lace Cold-Shoulder Midi Dress” from Lulus.com! When I was online shopping for some holiday outfits, I came across this dress on sale for $18. If you read my Thanksgiving OOTD, you would know that Lulus has quickly become one of my favorite online stores!

I paired this outfit with these simple black block heels that I bought on Amazon last year (I am not too sure of the price, but they may have been around $20-$30 dollars). The heels are by the brand “Madden Girl”.

I typically prefer to wear gold jewelry, however I felt that silver matched the dress better! I wore a simple pair of diamond earrings and a silver bow ring. Lastly, I took this sequin clutch that I purchased at TJ Maxx to complete the look! (For a few more photos of this outfit, check out my Instagram: @sacchere14.)

It is actually an incredibly beautiful day out (65 degrees)! Although I wish it were a bit colder so that it would feel more like Christmas, I’m glad I did not freeze in this dress! I think that I have only experienced a few white Christmases in my life, and it is something I wish I could experience more often.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I hope that you are spending time with the people you love most! Enjoy every moment, and I will be back to chat with you all in a couple days! Thank you for reading! Merry Christmas!

OOTD: Does it Come in Black?

Hey everyone! I wanted to share an ootd (outfit of the day) with you today because I am obsessed with this look that I put together!
There is something about wearing all black that makes you feel powerful. I created this look using a couple new additions to my wardrobe! 

First, we need to talk about this shirt! This is the “Illusion Sweetheart Crop Top” in black. I purchased this adorable top from Forever 21 for $22 this past summer, and I am just now getting around to wearing it! I love the polka dot mesh and the ruffle combination!

I then paired this top with these belted high rise ankle pants from Charlotte Russe. I bought these pants right before the store closed. If you weren’t aware, Charlotte Russe went out of business earlier this year. They used to be my favorite store, but now that they’re back, I haven’t heard many great things about them. If I do decide to shop at Charlotte Russe again, I will let you know what I think of the quality of their clothing!

Next, you may be familiar with this jacket since it was in my “Finally Fall OOTD”. I will most likely be wearing this piece all season! It is the “Faux Leather Hooded Moto Jacket” in camel/gray. I purchased this jacket from Forever 21 this past summer for $15.

And lastly, my other recent purchase, these ankle boots! These are the “Faux Suede Booties”, also from Forever 21. I had been looking for a nice pair of pointed toe ankle boots for a while now, so when I came across these I had to have them! I paid around $20 for these shoes!

I truly believe that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to look put together or fashionable. I am not too sure how much the pants I am wearing cost, but they were most likely no more than $20, making this outfit’s total come to around $80. 
I love planning and putting outfits together and being able to share them with you! Thank you so much for reading!
