Outfit Post: Flare Jeans + The Best Silk Tank

September 3, 2013

It was HOT and humid this past weekend in Cincinnati.  Fortunately, we’ve had a mostly mild Summer, but it seems that just towards the end Mother Nature wanted to remind us all that she isn’t messing around.  We were headed out to lunch at Wildflower Cafe with some friends, so jeans were fine because I knew we’d be in air conditioning …. but 10 minutes outside to snap a few pictures and I had had enough.  Although I love Summer, I will be excited to get to wear jeans more often when the temperatures cool down a bit. I’m really liking these Henry & Belle flared jeans because my legs are a lot more muscular up top than they are in the calves, so this style helps to balance my shape out a bit.  This might be a good trick for those of you who also have a bit of a size imbalance in your legs.  I also absolutely love these Madewell silk blouses – I have two colors (remember the yellow from last summer?) and get a ton of wear out of them.  I am keeping my fingers crossed they offer the same style again next Spring (if the link doesn’t work – just search for Silk Cargo Tank!).

    Jeans weather sounds good – and so does this cafe! It’s been a while since I’ve done anything but skinny jeans, so I’ve almost forgotten about other good options… these ones look great on you.

    I cannot wait for cooler weather too… I’ve already mentally checked out of summer lol. Good to know you like your new Henry and Belle jeans :)

      Yes – the jeans are great. This pair might not be good for your petite self :) but the skinny ankle jeans would probably be perfect (although they’d likely be full length on you, not ankle length).
