How I Style My Jeans When I am Playing Dress-Up

I used to wear jeans like sunglasses or lip gloss – I never left the house without them.  I lived in denim, wore the same pair over and over, found the ever-so-perfect way of fluffing the jeans to keep them uber soft.  And then I grew up, entered the career world, and my jeans cried from the high up shelf where they were left.

Nowadays I relish in a good pair of jeans, but I’ve begrudgingly accepted that my old pairs aren’t quite going to cut it.  Levi’s® Curve are perfect for my grown-up figure (hello, curves!) and they’re also the perfect canvas for any number of fabulous outfits.  When I put on a pair of jeans, I want to play dress up.  I’m just not a jeans-and-flip-flops kind of girl; but great jeans and a pair of heels — that’s my sweet spot.

How do you style your jeans? Are you an every day denim-wearer, or do the jeans only make appearances on nights and weekends?

And, if you get the chance, check out all of Levi’s® Curve ID jeans in Levi’s® stores or on  They’re sleek, sophisticated, and completely flattering.

Friday Link Love

It’s Friday!  And this weekend is all about organizing.  I may be a little late on my resolutions (get fit, i.e. with actual muscles – not just the ability to jazzercise in an uncoordinated fashion; organize my closet/kitchen/life; perfect my hosting skills, learn to park – you see, I can get there, but the parking part, not so much; buy fewer shoes, hahaha), but I’m not giving up yet.

Dangit, I just bought a planner, but these glittering numbers make me want a new one … already.  How can one organize without the style?  Utilitarian planners are so last year, anyway. {Barbara Wiggins 2012 Day Planner Diaries}

Can we talk about this dress?  The saddest moment of my week was finding out this dress was sold out at ASOS.  There are a few similar styles (Similar here, here, and here), but the original, it’s phenomenal.  {Image via Chriselle Inc.}

This just puts a smile on my face. {Kate Spade New York Eat Cake for Breakfast}

Over on Glitter Weddings, I gushed about these monogrammed pie pockets that double as great place cards/favors; but they’re also just an easy take on a miniature pie.  With pre-made pie dough and a pie filling (you can totally cheat and buy the stuff in a can – it’s bizarrely delicious), this is an incredibly easy dessert that will impress everyone!  Cue reslution #337 – hostess with the most-est.
