Getting Skinny With It

Now you know I'm a denim addict, so I had to try #TheNewSkinny from Lane Bryant. While I'm all about their boyfriend jeans, I wanted to give their new jeans a try. Finding a good pair of skinny jeans at times can be hard. Some of my struggles with skinny jeans is either the jean looks more like a straight leg jean, it's too long or it stretches out. 

The New Skinny comes in several washes, and different hems. I am wearing the step hem in medium wash. I am wearing a size 16, and the jeans fit like a dream. The stretch in these are definitely different than the jeans they carried before, and the recovery is on point. I wore these all day, and with me sitting and then standing, I didn't feel that droop. If you are not familiar to what I am talking about, it's when you are sitting or moving for a while and then jeans stretch out. I love that they come up a little higher on me so that I was able to tie my shirt. I love the seam down the leg and the step hem. 

Since I am wearing a twist on the classic skinny jean, I figured I should wear a twist on the classic button up. I love the flounce sleeves on this striped top. Lane Bryant button up's have been a go to of mines for the past year or so all because of one little thing - extra buttons. When you are busty, wearing button ups can cause tug of war. Even when I sized up, I ended up somehow looking like the incredible hulk or the button would pop open. Their new button up's have a smaller hidden button in between to prevent such. Sometimes the smallest things make the most impact. 

I have been all about the slide life this summer. I have been wearing slides and mules and will continue until there is snow on the ground. I first saw these at Lane Bryant's fall preview, and I had them on must have list. The heel height is perfect for all day wear and you can't go wrong with a shoe in navy.
