Can’t get enough of my . . . boyfriend jeans!

So do you have that one piece of clothing in your closet you find yourself reaching for over, and over, and over, and over again? I do! My boyfriend jeans! Sometimes I actually have to stop myself from wearing my boyfriend jeans. After all, a girl can’t be seen wearing the same thing two days in a row!

So boyfriend jeans aren’t new on the denim scene. They have been around for a few years as a popular denim style. Although I have owned boyfriend jeans for several years now, this season I cannot seem to get enough of them!

Skinny jeans have become boring to me, and a lot of the cropped styles on the market this season, don’t really excite me. You won’t catch me in “mom jeans,” after all, I can’t even bring myself to drive a mini-van. Those high-waisted jeans popping up all over Instagram make me a giggle a little. C’mon, didn’t we learn from the high-waited denim mistake a few decades ago? Just say no to high-waists. They give everyone a pooch belly.

Boyfriend jeans have become my go-to denim style this season because they are comfortable, easy to wear, and they have built-in air conditioning. Those distressed holes they come with allow for some air flow! This is great when the temperatures start to rise above 70. Love them!

It is also really easy to wear boyfriend jeans with wedges, flats, or heels; depending upon the occasion.

Denim is also a fabric which can washed over, and over, and over again without looking old or frayed; haha, unless they were meant to look that way like these distressed boyfriend jeans! I can keep washing, drying, and wearing these jeans without worrying about them looking old. They really are my number one go-to item. It’s possible I wear them more then my favorite handbags; and handbags transcend season!

beauty products c/o Colleen Rothschild from left, Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum / Body Cream (love how this smells!!) /  Extreme Recovery Cream (all products-use coupon code FF25 to save 25% off your purchase now through May 21!)

I am so excited to talk to you about Colleen Rothschild’s beauty products! I had the honor of meeting her last month when I was at the rewardStyle conference, and she was absolutely amazing! She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and had the best skin; of course! Since I want skin like hers, and I think we all do, I knew trying out her beauty products was a must!

She has so many fabulous skin care products. I have not had the chance to try them all out, but I wanted to share with you the three products which caught my eye when I was first introduced to the brand.

Colleen Rothschild Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum

Colleen Rothschild’s Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum caught my eye because it helps skin like mine. Although it has the word “acid” in the name, it is actually gentle enough to use everyday. The Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum promotes cellular turnover which helps with fine lines, acne (my nemesis!), dark spots (I have a few from my love of the sun), and the overall texture of facial skin.

Mandelic Acid is derived from the bitter almond and contains gentle yet highly effective alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It gently exfoliates skin which, over time, results in a bright and radiant complexion. Love that!

I have been using it nightly after my regular nighttime cleansing routine and my skin feels softer, and my sun spots less visible. Love!

Colleen Rothschild Extreme Recovery Cream

colleen rothschild extreme recovery cream review

The Extreme Recovery Cream by Colleen Rothschild is a lifesaver for dry skin. This spring season, we have had so much wind! The wind and the sun have really wreaked havoc on my skin. This cream has been a great barrier from the wind, and it has kept my facial skin moisturized to perfection. Love!

Colleen Rothschild body cream (new product-smells SO GOOD!)

colleeen rothschild body cream review

I go through so much body cream! My skin is always exposed to the elements, as well swimming pool chemicals, so I am always in need of a good body cream to keep my skin moisturized. Colleen Rothschild new body cream smells so good, plus it is light as a feather! It does not leave any film or goopy cream on your skin. It is absorbed instantly; which is so amazing! This body cream may not be online yet, but I will keep you posted and let you know when it is in stock. It is truly amazing!

Daniel Wellington Petite collection

watch: c/o Daniel Wellington Petite watch (use coupon code BAYAREA15 to save 15% off your purchase)

Daniel Wellington has a new watch! You may have noticed I already own a couple of Daniel Wellington’s timepieces. So when Daniel Wellington told me they had a new watch debuting this spring, I was thrilled! The new Daniel Wellington petite collection features the classic Daniel Wellington watch face we have all grown to love, in a smaller, more demure size. Love!

Although I already own a black watch in the larger, classic size, I decided to go for the petite version in black too. My classic watch is black with rose gold, so for the petite version I chose black with silver. I love the contrast of black with silver; it is extremely classic!

Petite watches were all the rage back in the 1990s. According to the runways, and the streets, the ’90’s have a little bit of influence over our current trends, so, it is only natural that smaller watches re-enter the watch scene. They offer vintage appeal, while still remaining timeless. It’s all about petite!

The Daniel Wellington Petite watch collection is fabulous for anyone who wants to rock the hottest trend in watches; or has a small wrist and feels like the larger watch face overwhelms their arm. My petite watch keeps the same, accurate time as my classic watch, with the same luxurious look and feel I expect from a Daniel Wellington watch. Love that!

You can find the entire collection of Daniel Wellington watches online here. Use code BayArea15 upon checkout and you can save 15% off your purchase! This would make a great gift for graduation, or later this year during the holiday season!

Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
