So I’m sure you all know this by now, but….
Bless it. Scream it. Sing it. Preach it.
FLARES ARE BACK BABY!
And now they are 40% OFF! 🙂
Here’s the deal.
I didn’t even know I was ready for a new style of jeans….
but then I slipped a pair of flares on my body.
And OH. MY.
They made me look tall.
Which is pretty much the look I’m going for every day of my life.
Tall and skinny is my fashion aesthetic.
Being almost 5’4″ doesn’t make this easy for me, but these flares really do help me along.
YAY FOR FLARES!
So I showed you a pair of flares about a month ago, but they sold out pretty dang fast, and they were junior’s sizing (which many of you didn’t love).
Well, now I have a pair to share with you that’s women’s sizing, they seem to be fully stocked, they come in 2 different washes, and they come in varying lengths (petite, regular, and tall).
So let’s just cut to the chase…
THESE jeans need to be in your closet
immediately like yesterday. Especially now that they are on sale for $47.70!
Unless you prefer to not look tall and skinny. 😉
FLARE JEANS THAT WILL MAKE YOU LOOK TALLER AND SKINNIER (THAN YOU ALREADY LOOK)
(I often times size down in LOFT pants, but I didn’t in these.)
the line of our legs.
When the goal is a long and lean leg, adding height (even if it’s with a shoe) really helps the cause!
Here’s the pic again for you to study.
When wearing flare jeans, I personally feel this is exactly where you want your jeans to hit on your foot. You want a little bit of your shoe peeking out, but not too much. And they are too long if they are dragging the floor and covering your entire foot.
I really like the look of a long top with flares (again, I think it helps the “long and lean” cause) as seen here, but in a second I’ll show you them with a shirt tucked in as well.

earrings / watch / similar height wedges / bag sold out
I couldn’t find any similar wedges that were still stocked, so I linked a pair of Michael Kors wedges I have (they come in cognac as well). These would be PERFECT for flares (and they are comfy)!
Just click on the pic you are interested in:
Since I fell in love with the LOFT flares, I was SUPER excited when LOFT reached out and asked if I would talk about fall fashion at LOFT and their new line of tote bags!
A HUGE THANK YOU to my neighbor Heather for taking these pics!
Here’s a close up of both the jeans and the tote for y’all!
We all know that what it probably should have said was bossy.
The tote is pretty small (it’s definitely meant for something small like books, flowers, or maybe produce…..it’s not an everyday bag), so I’m going to use it as a book tote for when I head to the library with the little fella. I actually have 3 dinosaur books in it in the picture.
Also notice here that I tucked in here (as opposed to wearing a long tunic like I did int he first outfit pic today) and it looks great too!
And because it’s very fashion bloggery….and I’m fashion blogger-ish,,,
I did a little side by side and flip flopped the pic.
Look at me.
I’m a fashion blogger.
I hope you noticed the the belt ladies! If you don’t have an animal print belt, fix that right now. I wear mine ALL YEAR LONG. but especially in the fall and winter months. The one I’ve been wearing for years is from LOFT and almost exactly like the one they are carrying this year. This year’s version is just a tad bit skinnier and with gold hardware. It’s a great belt. I wear it with solids, with plaids, with stripes, with everything.

Here are some other great items at LOFT right now!
I think this blouse would also be so cute with skinny jeans and tall boots!
And again, the AWESOME necklace will be available on Friday, so make sure you come back to find out the deets (and maybe get a coupon code)! 😉
I loved the colors and pattern of this shirt. It’s quite a bit shorter in the back than the front, but I was still able to manage a little half tuck.
I couldn’t stand it any longer and went ahead and ordered this baby for myself! I tried it on at Northpark (am not sure why I didn’t get it immediately), and when I went to both Stonebriar and Watters Creek the next week to buy it, neither store carried it. Well, now it’s on it’s way to me!

Thank you to LOFT for sponsoring this post!
If you haven’t ever checked out LOFT, or if it’s been awhile,
you really do need to give them a try!
Before the blog, LOFT was pretty much the only store I ever shopped, and I still go there frequently. I can always walk in a store or hop online and find something (let’s be honest…things) that I love. And they are always having awesome sales!
