Wide Leg Crop Jeans | Work to Weekend

We made it to Friday friends!  It’s been a week full of ups and downs here, but I just have to tell you how thankful we are to have your generous donations to our friends who lost their homes during the storm.  I can’t believe we are now seeing Hurricane Irma on Harvey’s heels and I am watching it with a lump in my throat, knowing how it can, and has already, devastated lives.  I’ll be praying for you Florida and Carolinas.

I know here, everyone just wants their normal back and are so happy to resume regular work and school schedules.  With that in mind, I have a Work to Weekend post for you with the cutest wide leg crop jeans.  These are the same jeans I featured in Back to School for Grown Ups and I wanted to show you how they look on and styled two different ways!


Does your office have a casual Friday or jeans everyday policy?  Ours did and I definitely took advantage of it!  Of course, now that I work from home, I can obviously wear jeans all the time! This pair is really comfortable and super cute!  They look similar to the Madewell pair, but half the cost!

I wasn’t sure how I’d like these crop jeans because I’m super short and crop length can sometimes make me look even shorter, but becasue these are tighter at the waist and hips and then wide leg bottom, with a heel or wedge, they don’t make me look squatty.

Sizing:  These jeans run a tad big, I’m usually a 25, but I sized down to a 24.  Luckily, they come in petite and I didn’t have to alter them at all.

To make jeans more work appropriate, I prefer a darker wash like these, but I’m crazy for the let out hem look.

You saw in September Loves  my favorite v-neck style tee, but this crewneck tee makes a great backdrop for showing off a statement necklace.  It’s comfortable, lightweight, not see-though and machine washable.  You cannot beat that for $19!

I hate it when pieces I show you sell out, but any statement necklace you have in your closet will do.  You don’t have to save them for your dressy outfits- they’ll dress up jeans and a tee shirt on their own.

Do y’all remember when I shared this cross-body bag in my latest outfit roundup?  I invested in it right after we got back from New Orleans because I wish I had it when we were walking around sightseeing.  It’s bigger than your typical crossbody and the bottom unzips to create more room, so it will hold more (even my mini camera).

While I bought it mainly for traveling, (I’m going to NYC for the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker event in a couple weeks), I’m finding it’s a high quality everyday bag too.  It’s so much easier to sling this across my body than carry a tote or handbag when I’m out with Jordan.  It’s got an outside and great inside pockets to keep things separated.

Man, my hair color sure has grown out!  It’s been 4 months since my last touch up and I have an appointment with Chris in a few weeks, so I think I’ll be going every 5 months.  I’ve loved the freedom of not having to go get my roots done every 5 weeks!  But, it really needs it now!

The bag is a must have for travel or for running around everyday with kids.  I do have a separate little toddler tote that I’ll take into restaurants with Jordan’s sippy cup, utensils, bib and plastic placemats, along with a small book and crayons.  But I like not keeping all that stuff in my bag!

For weekend, you can swap the tee for an adorable peplum tank and kick off the classic pumps in favor of strappy heels.

This peplum tank was one of my August Loves, but with our warm weather, it’s still good to go.  It comes in 10 colors and is now on sale 50% off, only $15!  I really like the light grey and ‘mink’ and of course the white for layering under a cardigan (just ordered this baby– it comes in XXS! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a cardigan that doesn’t come down to my knees?!?!)

I wore a Bandeau Bra with my tank because my favorite strapless bra was showing in the back.  But with a pretty bandeau bra, part of the point is that it looks pretty if you get a peek of lace showing through.

Style Tip: Normally with a wide leg crop jean like these, I’d recommend keeping your top more fitted and tucked in so the proportions are balanced, but this peplum tank is on the shorter side and swingy, so it still shows the slimmer waist and hips.

For transitional to Fall, I’d love to wear these jeans with a 3/4 sleeve top tucked in and suede wedges. Nordstrom is killing it with their Fall clothes this year and I can’t wait to bust out these booties! 

Speaking of Nordstrom, their Summer Sale is happening now with huge savings up to 40% off!  Many things from the wildly popular Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that previously sold out are back and also on sale 40% off!  I rounded up a few of my faves for ya!

RIGHT  ⋅ Caslon Utility Pants 24P ⋅ Lush Raw Edge Side Slit Tee XS ⋅ BP Tale Slide ⋅ Embroidered Crossbody Bag

I highly recommend the Caslon Utility Pants. They are so, so good that even after I took all these dressing room pictures, I put these back on to wear for the day! They’re super comfy and stretchy and fit perfectly everywhere- and no gaping in the waist, so no alterations needed!  You can dress them up or down and I promise they will become one of your wardrobe staples.  With the 24P, I can wear them cuffed for a little ankle peeking out, or down without hemming.

jean jacket

Jean Jacket XS 40% off

I have a jean jacket that I swear by, but I wanted to try this one because it was a darker wash and included in the sale. It’s a little heavier than the one I have, but it’s still pretty lightweight with good stretch.   It runs a little small (XS fits like a shrunken jacket which I like) but if you’re in between sizes you might want to size up.

print top

Two By Vince Camuto Skinny Ponte Pants 24/00P (need 0P) ⋅ Halogen Ruffle Sleeve Top XS 40% off ⋅ Pendant Necklace

This top is one that I wasn’t crazy about on the hanger, but on it’s absolutely adorable! It’s got a flirty ruffled hem and sleeve and also rushing across the chest that gives it a little extra flair.  It’s one of my unexpected treasures!

But the pants!!  Ladies, I’m telling you, GET THE PANTS!! They are regular pants with a zip fly and button waist, but they fit more like leggings so they’re really comfortable, soft and easy to wear.  They are also so slimming and figure flattering.  I’d say they fit TTS and the 00P fit  except the waist (couldn’t button!), so I should’ve stuck with my regular 0P. They’re also a bit long, so I’ll have to cuff (which I did here) or get altered.

Caslon Twill Jacket

Caslon Twill Peplum Jacket XSP 40% off

I went back and forth between this peplum jacket and the Madewell military jacket, but ended up deciding on this one because I already have one similar to the Madewell.  If you don’t already have a military jacket, I’d get the Madewell military jacket.  It’s more structured with a drawstring waist to give you a smaller waistline.

Plaid Off The Shoulder Top (tried on XS, but ordered XSP) 40% off

This off-shoulder top sure ups the game on your grandpa’s flannel shirt! It’s super soft and cozy, and the off-shoulder/long sleeves are an awesome combo.  Two By Vince Camuto Waffle-Stitch Vest (XSP)

cowl neck sweater (1)

Right away I was smitten with the cowl neck sweater vest.  The waffle fabric is thick and the baby pink is really pretty.  It’s got small v-cuts on the side and isn’t the pocket a fun detail? A tight turtleneck isn’t usually my thing, but I love the looser cowl neck style.

These tops missed their calling as pajama tops! ? They’re just so soft and cozy. Lots of colors and on sale, only $28! I’m kind of kicking myself that I didn’t bring this home with me, but there are still tons available online, so I probably need to grab one. Or more! before they’re gone!

floral trumpet dress

Eliza J Trumpet Dress 2P 40% off ⋅ Nude Strappy Heels

Now this is a cute dress that you can wear now or into the fall with its perfect mix of navy and pink. I love the three quarter hem and trumpet style. The trumpet hem is really flattering from behind because it accentuates your booty;)

gingham top

Gingham Top 00

I’m crazy for the gingham print and embroidered sleeves with tassels. Those details make this top extra special and I know I’ll get tons of wear out of it.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
