How fun are these wide leg jeans! I finally bit the bullet and purchased a pair of wide leg, cropped jeans for the summer season as an alternate to my beloved boyfriend jeans. It seemed like it was about time to have an alternate pair of jeans, since I have all but abandoned my skinny jeans.

These cropped wide leg jeans are super comfortable; and fun! I love the bleached design at the crop. Since I am 5’4″, the regular size hits me at the ankles. Maybe I should have ordered petite? If I was taller, it would hit me a couple inches above the ankles; which I think looks amazing. If there were not details on the edges of the jeans, I would cut them to be a little bit higher.

I wore this outfit last weekend for a sushi dinner with my family. it was our second time eating at Sushi Confidential in downtown Campbell. The food was really good, so we had a lot of fun! If you are local, be sure to check it out!

My nine-year-old son took these photos. He was so cute trying to work my dslr camera! It is fun teaching him photography. I love how my two younger kids love to learn photography.

What are your thoughts on the cropped wide leg jeans trend? Is this a trend you plan to wear?

One of the big trends off the New York Fashion Week runways is denim. Denim for spring 2017 is a hot trend this year. We are seeing denim in dark, medium, and light washes. The American fabric, originally inspired from sailcloth made in Genoa, Italy, is being found on every type of clothing and accessory piece you can think of for spring 2017. This is the fabric of the season!

Since I am already a huge denim fan, I have had my eyes wide open when shopping for spring 2017. When I spotted this top by TopShop, I knew it had to be mine! I love the funky buckle details, and shirred hemlines. It is a classic top, reminiscent of 1960s silhouettes. This makes it modest yet eye-catching. Love that!

I love how it looks when I wear it with black skinny jeans. As the weather gets warmer, it will be cute to pair it with a pencil skirt.

What are your thoughts on the denim trend for spring 2017?

eShakti denim jumper

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Gap turtleneck / denim jumper c/o eShakti (sold out, visit eShakti.com for more options) / faux shearling jacket (on major sale!!) / JW Anderson handbag / Kendra Scott ring / Kendra Scott nail polish / Gucci spring slides

Jumpers were a huge trend on the runways of New York Fashion Week. In addition to being a hot runway trend, fashion insiders were already wearing the trend on the streets of New York Fashion Week in September. This my friends, is a trend you cannot ignore.

When eShakti approached me to test out one of their custom fit dresses, I jumped at the chance. They have this fabulous denim jumper as part of their dress collection; and it is ideal for transitioning from winter into spring. Not to mention, it is a denim jumper which combines two hot spring trends; denim and jumpers. Love that!

There is something about a jumper which reminds me of my childhood. I went to Catholic school for a few years and we had to wear jumpers. In addition to my school uniform, jumpers were a popular fashion trend in the 1980’s, and well into the early 1990’s when jumpers transformed from thick strapped dresses over blouses into spaghetti strapped dresses over tee shirts. But there is something more grown-up about the trend this time around.

This time, the jumper trend does not have rules. You can wear anything underneath any sized strappy dress and it is “street style” approved. I love this denim jumper by eShakti since it combines the denim trend, the jumper trend, and a custom fit which is fabulous for shorter gals like me.

When you order from eShakti, they ask you where you want the dress to hit you on your leg, how tall you are, and for any modifications. For this denim jumper, the length could be maxi, midi, or mini. I chose above the knee. They also ask how tall you are, so this helps ensure the hemline hits in the right place. Works like a charm!

I wasn’t thinking about what I planned to wear underneath this jumper when I ordered it. When worn over a turtleneck, as in this post, the dress is a bit snug. Worn alone, which I plan to do in warmer months, it fits perfectly. If you plan to layer a form fitting jumper, or any jumper for that matter, order one size up to leave room for what you plan to wear underneath.

This isn’t the first time I have ordered from eShakti. I have a fun pink skirt from them I ordered a few years ago. The quality is quite good for the pricing. The fabric holds up after being washed, and the stitching stays in place. I am pleased with how well their clothing is made.

My denim jumper is sold out, but there are plenty more jumpers, including denim jumpers, in stock from eShakti. For more customizable clothing options, visit eShakti.com.
