I saw this next outfit on Pinterest and felt like many of us would already have the items needed to make it happen. I liked that it was really simple with just jeans, a white tee, a cardi, and gold jewelry.
I didn’t wear nude heels, but I did kick it up a notch for me and wear some suede wedges!
Because I’m fancy like that.
And like I pretty much always do, I added a leopard belt.
Again, Because I’m fancy like that.
(Sorry for the yellow pic, I think a setting was off on my phone.)
The cardi that I featured below is from LOFT, which means it’s 50% OFF today!
I found some other black cardi options for you too!
And you know I always fee like a leopard belt adds the perfect amount of oomph to the outfit!
Just click on it if you’re interested!
And that LOFT belt? Well, it’s 50% OFF! AMAZING deal!!!
So, what do y’all think?
Do you like the simplicity of the outfit?
I will definitely be wearing this one again. I feel like it’s a total no-brainer!

And last thing before we go, I feel like a MUST HAVE review is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
I named a new MUST HAVE on Friday.
And in hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have done so the day after Christmas.
I know lots of you were still out of your routine, maybe not at work, and not checking blogs.
Not that any of you would check blogs while you are at work.
So, if you didn’t see the blog on Friday, listen up!
There’s a new MUST HAVE in town!
MUST HAVE REVIEW:
I can’t say enough great things about these jeans.
Since Friday, some sizes have sold out, but most sizes are still available! Whew!
They are FLATTERING AS ALL GET OUT, they are stretchy, they are comfy, SUPER CRAZY SOFT,they hold their shape, and I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this…
but they’re flattering.
AS ALL GET OUT.
Did I say that already?
And they tuck into tall boots BEAUTIFULLY.
And my goodness are they flattering.
I also want to mention that these are NOT junior’s sizing. They are from the women’s department, so I know lots of you are going to be happy about that!
They remind me of a jegging.
Now let me be clear, they are NOT a jegging….but they do remind me of jeggings (because of their comfort and softness).
How do I know they aren’t jeggings?
Well, they have real fully functioning pockets in both front and back as
well as fully functioning belt loops.
They are definitely jeans.
But they do have jegging like qualities.
They are jegging-ish, if you will.
They have all of the best qualities of a jegging, BUT THEY ARE STILL A JEAN.
Just like the good Lord intended.
Here I am wearing the new MUST HAVE jeans last week.
The gingham shirt and the sweater are both several years old, but you can still find all my jewelry! The necklace and the earrings are both c/o Gorjana and Griffin. The earrings are at Nordstrom HERE and the necklace is on the Gorjana site HERE. The double ring is c/o Kendra Scott, but can be found at Nordstrom HERE.
You can shop my jewelry in the pics below:
You may or may not know this, but it’s really hard to take good selfies of your jeans.
If you have never tried it (and I’m
hoping guessing none of you ever have), you are just going to have to trust me on this. I think I might have pulled a muscle in my back trying to get a good back view for you girls, but alas it wasn’t meant to be.
The pics below are meant to show you that these are I guess what you would call a mid-rise jean. I know they will fit a little bit differently on everybody, but they fit just below my belly button (which is why I’m calling them a mid-rise).
When I first talked about these jeans I said they were “higher wasted”…and they are….but they are nothigh-waisted, if that makes any kind of sense at all.
Higher Waisted? YES.
High Waisted? NO.
Yep, that should be as clear as mud now.
So, here it is…the official MUST HAVE alert!
Click HERE for the jeans.
For size reference, I am wearing a size 4, so I feel like they are true to size.
Some reviews say to order down a size, but I’m glad I got my normal size.
That’s all for today girls!
See you back here on Wednesday!
Shay and her family left this morning to go get Ashby!!!!!
Please follow along with their journey over on Shay’s blog and pray for them and their sweet girl.
WE LOVE YOU SHULLS!
All of your friends and family here cannot wait for y’all to get Ashby home!!!!
Charming Lucy says
I love the simple black cardigan look! I think I will wear that for NYE. We are attending a very simple family get together and this will be perfect! Thanks! Susan
Krista Youngblood says
These are still my favorite posts! 🙂 Especially when everything already lives in my closet! And so excited for the Shulls! Can't wait to see their family of 5 photo!
Erika Slaughter says
I agree!!! I'm a big fan of the simple look! It looks super easy but so put together. Nailed it!!
kimm atwood says
Love the simple look…,it's fabulous! Question about the hoodie tee..,did you try it on…if so how does it run! And yay for the shulls!!!
Hi Kimm! I haven't tried it on…. I just ordered online! I ordered a medium!
kimm atwood says
Thanks girl! Happy Monday!!!!
Michele @ The Joyful Home says
Yes- love this outfit! Maybe I'll wear it today 🙂 Hope you had a great Christmas!
Eek! I LOVE this!!! also, I ordered the Olivia pope jacket last night! What a great deal! 🙂
I have a leopard belt, but it's old as dirt & have drooled over the one you always share!!
I just snagged this wide one at JCrew (& it was cheaper)…use STYLE15 to get additional 40% off. It ended up being $29.99.
Thanks for the inspiration in 2014, Shaeffer!
I look & feel so much less frumpy these days thanks to you!
Amy Kleis says
Simplicity always a winner!! Congrats to the Shulls, amazing and awesome! Happy New Year all around!
Jordyn Brown says
I'm kind of low-key obsessed with the way you paired that sweater & gingham top. I just can't help but love it!
Nerd Girl says
Awww…that's so great for Shay and her family. I started reading her blog because of you and have really come to enjoy keeping up with their goings on!
And I'm trying not to shop! But as always, you're making that difficult if not impossible 🙂
Lindsay D. says
I'm so happy for Shay and her family!! I found your blog through her Monday Meal Planning.
I did order the jeans on Friday and cannot wait for them to be here!!
Whitney Smith says
Totally wore a similar outfit yesterday but since Im not fancy, I wore brown riding boots instead 😉
I ordered the jeans and love them. However, the tag on DOES say "Jeggin" — so they are a jeggin as that is what Wit & Wisdom is calling them. I like jeggins so it isn't a problem, but these are NOT jeans!! 🙂
Rachel Werts says
I ordered the wit and wisdom jeans last week and I received them today. I've only tried them on and I can already tell they're going to be the best jeans I have ever owned
Sarah Kuykendall says
Love the recreation! I am excited to try the jeans!
Kelly Lynn says
What size do you have in the leopard belt? They only have XS left and the size chart says that works for a 27 inch waist.
Hi Kelly! My belt is from several years ago, but it's a medium. I always buy up in belts! Hope this helps! Xoxo, Sheaffer
Leslie Roberts Clingan says
Your recreation is spot-on! Love the jeans with the nude heels. Really like the red striped sweater with the gingham. You are one stylin' gal!
Thank you for sharing the Shull's GREAT news! I have just begun following Shay and am not sure where it is they are traveling to get Ashby. Praying for their safe travels and a very happy beginning to this exciting new chapter of their lives.
I saw the must have jeans on your blog and pinned them on my want board because I needed new skinny jeans. I ended up buying them this weekend with money leftover from a great deal on a laptop. I can't wait to get them. They should be here any day know and I am hoping they live up to all the hype 🙂
LOVE this! Can I get everything leopard please?
