A few weeks ago I posted this photo on Instagram of this gorgeous outfit and got such a positive repost selfie I wanted to share more of it!

Unfortunately, I could not bring this whole outfit to Paris. The skirt is doesn't fold easily and wasn't versatile enough for the trip and the heels weren't practical for all of the walking. But there was nothing stopping me from sharing this look on the here!

This skirt has made several appearances on the blog and my Instagram, so it's probably no secret that I love it! Its flowy but voluminous, so pairing it with a fitted shirt is necessary. I chose the black and white striped shirt because there is something about stripes that feels very Parisian. Toss on some nude pumps and my favorite tweed blazer and I'd be ready to hit the streets of Paris. But I'll settle for KC! :D

The Only Jeans I'm Buying

Levi's Jeans | Top | Shoes | Sunglasses | World Wide Red

Take a look at any "Women's Fashion Must Haves" list and you will definitely see "jeans that fit perfectly" on the list. I am so happy to say that I have found mine!

For years, I struggled to find a good pair of jeans. One pair fit in the waist, but tight in the thigh, another would be the right length, but terrible material, the list goes on and on. Then a couple of years ago, I found Levi's 711 Skinny Jeans. Never, had a pair of jeans fit me so perfectly! I was amazed. I truly forgotten how a pair of jeans should fit because I had spent so many years in uncomfortable pairs.

I made the mistake of continuing to purchase jeans from other brands. They followed with the same disappointment.  But my Levi's jeans stayed perfect. It wasn't too long after this, that I vowed to only purchase Levi's jeans. No other brand has provided me with such comfort, style, and quality.

What is your favorite pair of jeans? Do you have a go-to designer or style?

As always, thank you for reading,

XOXO Helen

Events with Victoria Beckham For Target

Dress: Victoria Beckham for Target | Shoes: BCBGeneration Charia Pump (similar here and here | Jacket: Express | Watch: Old Tommy Hilfiger (similar here and here) | Sunglasses: American Eagle | Nail Polish: Essie | Lips: CoverGirl

 

Like many women, I am obsessed with Target and I am obsessed Victoria Beckham. Target is just wear I manage to get everything I need on a day-to-day basis.  Victoria Beckham is just the most perfect style icon in my eyes. I have literally followed her my whole life, starting from her time in the Spice Girls. In the 90s, I thought her mini lace dresses and crop tops were the best and now her style is just the most chic and posh, pun intended. So when I heard she was doing a collab with Target, I knew I would need to check it out.

When I purchased with dress, I didn't have an event in mind to wear it to, but I knew I would eventually have one. This is both my curse and my saving grace. There have been multiple times, much to my husband's dismay, where I'll purchase an outfit, knowing it will be worn… just not sure when… (But, hey, this worked in my favorite for a wedding we have coming up! More on that later :D)

I have become obsessed with this dress! It's a gorgeous body-con dress that hugs all the right places. I feel absolutely beautiful when I wear it. So far, I have worn it to a baby shower and my younger bother's college graduation, and one more event coming up. This dress, and many others, are still available at Target, and they're discounted now!

Fall Shoe Favorites

I get so excited when it's time to bust out my fall shoe collection! So I decided to share my current favorites for this beautiful season!

1. Nude Pumps These are the classic nude shoe with a twist! There the perfect dress shoe to transition from summer to fall. I wear them every chance I get.

2. Plaid Pumps I clutched these shoes the moment I saw them in the store. I just envisioned wearing them every day in October/November. They're off to a great start!

3. Leopard Ballet Flats You may remember from my Summer Shoe Favorites that I love ballet flats. So of course, I have some for the fall as well. I've had these leopard shoes for some time now and they are perfect with so many fall outfits!

4. Faux Suede Booties No fall shoe collection is complete without a pair of booties. I've treasured these for some time now (as you may be able to tell) but they are the best color, fit, style, and bonus: they are crazy comfy!

5. Knee-High Brown Boots As the fall days go from brisk to freezing, I have my knee-high boots to fall back on. The best part with these boots is I can wear them with jeans, leggings, and dresses in the fall and as we dip into winter.
