Before we get started today, there are hundreds of new markdowns that hit Nordstrom this morning. I went through them this morning and found some of the best ones: these drusy bar earrings from Kendra Scott (40% OFF), the BP notched booties in several colors (40% OFF), some Zella high waisted leggings (33-40% OFF), my dressy black and floral top that I wore to Broadway this past weekend (25% OFF), one of my favorite v neck sweaters is 40% OFF (I have it in red and black from last year, and this year I bought it in the shitake), and my favorite sneakers from this year are 25% OFF!
Okay, girls. Today is the day.
Mark it down.
Today is the day I finally convince you to try these boot cut jeans if you haven’t already.
Go ahead and throw caution to the wind, put them in your dang cart, and press “purchase”.
I mean, it’s free shipping and free returns….and Nordstrom provides you with a label in the box if you want to ship them back for free…so there is literally NO RISK. And I’m telling you, you aren’t going to send them back. But at least you will have the peace of mind that you can do so FOR FREE (and easily) if you so choose. But you won’t.
In fact, I would bet that these jeans end up being a gateway jean for you to the Wit and Wisdom brand. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post. And for those of you that aren’t familiar, it’s not just me that loves these jeans and the brand. I’ve heard over and over again from readers that once they buy any pair of jeans from the brand, they immediately buy more.
Here’s what I predict is going to happen: Because I’m personally so PASSIONATE about this brand, your curiosity will be peeked, and you will decide to give a pair of jeans a try.
You will receive them.
You will put them on and check yourself out in the mirror.
You will realllllllllly like what you see.
And then you will immediately hop back online and figure out what other styles you want to order from the same maker.
I truly do have MANY readers who say that Wit and Wisdom jeans are the only jeans they own. Now, y’all know I love several different brands of jeans (I’m looking at you AG, Kut from the Kloth, Articles of Society, and most recently my Sam Edelman jeans!), but Wit and Wisdom are definitely some of my favorites. And you really do have to try them to understand what we’re talking about.
These are jeans for real women.
The comfort level is unbelievable, they hold their shape, they launder perfectly, AND THEY JUST MAKE YOU FEEL GREAT. They are mostly mid rise, they stay in place, and they don’t sag. UM, YES PLEASE.
It’s like I’m the mayor of Wit and Wisdom town.
So, you can find tons of Wit and Wisdom styles HERE (and all of their plus size options HERE), but today I’m going to focus on my beloved Itty Bitty Boot Cut Jeans. I got my first pair a little over 2 years ago I think, but at the time, although I loved the fit of the jeans, I didn’t love that the stitching was white. (If you’re a long time reader, maybe you remember the post where I showed you how I literally colored the stitching with a black Sharpie!?!) Well, they fixed the stitching problem last year, and now the jeans are perfect.
I’ve got 4 outfits for you today, all styled with my much adored Itty Bitty Boot Cut Jeans!
OUTFIT #1: Striped Crew Neck Sweater and Boot Cut Jeans
Take a quick look, and tell me I don’t look taller and skinnier. These jeans elongate my legs and give the appearance of like 2 extra inches in height! And they suck me in, while still allowing me to breathe! It’s a thing of wonder, y’all.
I mean. Look how long my legs look! At almost 5’4″, I wear a regular size 4 in these jeans (if between sizes, size down). The petites were way too short. I do have to wear them with heeled booties, but that just helps contribute to the long leg illusion.
If you look at the picture below, this is exactly where I like the hem of my boot cut jeans to fall. I don’t want the jeans dragging the floor, but showing too much shoe will ruin the elongating effect that’s happening! And I’m telling you, you don’t want to mess with the magic of these jeans.
I love wearing bright and colorful clothes when it’s cold and dreary outside, and heaven knows it’s been dreary in my neck of the woods lately. This sweater has brought a little bit of sunshine to the gloomy days for sure. You’ll also be seeing it in my Friday post where I recap What I Wore for my Girl’s Trip to New York!
The sweater is super soft, and can be styled up or down. I’ve worn it with ankle jeans and sneakers for a much more casual look, and I love it dressed up a bit here with the boot cut jeans and heeled booties. Click HERE to see it on me with skinny jeans and OTK boots. I sized up to a medium for some extra room in the chest, and I’m glad I did.
I absolutely love this sweater. It’s expensive, but it’s cashmere! I know I’ll wear it for years to come.

There’s also a much less expensive striped colorful sweater you can find HERE. I love the colors on this one too, and I of course love the chenille.
And I’m so thrilled to be able to highlight that the jeans also come in plus size!
OUTFIT #2: White Tee, Cable Cardi, and Boot cut Jeans
Remember when I showed this sweater with the neck all buttoned up on Friday? It’s SO freaking chic, if I do say so myself. Ha! (To see me wearing it buttoned up with skinny jeans, click HERE.)
This entire look felt very classic to me, and I loved all the neutrals.
The arrow stack necklace is adjustable from 18 1/2″ – 37 1/2″, and it’s one of those necklaces that’s a great basic that will go with lots of different looks (both dressy and casual).
I wanted to wear cognac booties with this look, but the heel was a little short for the jeans to hit exactly where I wanted them to fall. I wore them anyway, but in a perfect world the booties would have a higher heel.
OUTFIT #3: White Tee, Color Block Cardi and Boot cut Jeans
And the cognac stripe in the sweater matches the cognac tote near perfectly!
And I’ve got some GREAT NEWS!!! For the next 48 hours, Accessory Concierge has agreed to extend the code for the totes! YOU CAN STILL GET THE TOTES FOR $25 with the code TOTE2018 (reg. $58)!!! If you didn’t see Friday’s post, you have to go check it out right now. I thoroughly review the totes and give styling ideas for all 5 colors available.
I’ll also go and save the tote instastories to my highlights at some point today (that I originally published on Friday). Seeing them “in real life” helps you get a better feel for the color of the totes, and I answer lots of questions I’ve received about the totes. One additional question that I didn’t answer in the stories is that the handles are 23″ long, so they definitely fit comfortably over your shoulder.

OUTFIT #4: BLUSH CARDI AND A PUTTY BAG
This cocoon cardi comes in 9 total colors and has near perfect reviews. I’m wearing the pink adobe color here, but I also love the “brown spice” and the “red grape” for fall. For size reference, I’m wearing an x-small, so I would suggest sizing down.
This putty tote is much more taupe than grey, which several people did ask over the weekend. (I think the color is more true with my pictures than it is on the A.C. website.) And remember, you can head to insastories at some point today for my reviews of the bag.
DON’T FORGET! The code TOTE2018 will get you this tote for ONLY $25 ! Sure, go ahead and treat yourself. But also consider knocking several names off your Christmas list!
The jeans need to be mentioned one more time. Because LONG AND LEAN, ladies.
Long. And. Lean.
The necklace is great too. It’s adjustable, so it can go from 20″ to 34″ long. And it comes in both gold and silver.

OR, leave your thoughts on the Wit and Wisdom brand in the comments. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I was singing the praises of their black skinny jeans! I’m telling you, I’m one of the brand’s biggest fans.
I know that so many of you have more than 1 pair, so tell me your favorite pair!
