Hey! HAPPY 2018 to you and yours! I can’t believe we’re already in a new year. Crazy how much happened last year and this weekend was spent reflecting on all that was, and all that is to come! I am sooo ready for a fresh start and to kick this year’s BOOTAY.

That’s right, bell bottom enthusiasts. High-and mid rise bell bottom jeans are making their comeback! They are being spotted on high-end runways and even on cutting-edge celebrity icon Lady Gaga. These cool and comfortable jeans give the person wearing them the feeling that they are re-creating the 70’s, when these jeans really took off.

High- waisted jeans can be found at Dillard’s or Amazon for under $100! If your price range is higher, a good place to find these jeans would be on NORDSTROM. They have some pretty cute ones. 

 


 

My Mom was the one to teach me do’s and don’ts when wearing high-rise bells. Apparently, a sign of nerds during that era was to have creases in the jeans from the shirt you tucked in to show off your jeans. In order to prevent these weird creases, try tucking your shirt slightly into your underwear. I know this may sound odd, but it was actually pretty common back then and it does work to eliminate the shirt outlines from your jeans. Some people believe you should wear these jeans with a  flat. However, I believe that this look goes well with a wedge, high heel, or even a short boot. 

 Some teens are a little cautious in trying to pull off this look off, and with good reason. It;s difficult for many people, Jessica Simpson included, to not look slightly awkward in them. Even though our generation is not very fond of reaching out to our parents, in this case it would not be a bad idea to seek out your Mom’s advice in how to wear these jeans. I’m normally between XS and a Small, so I got the small, but it’s kinda loose a little bit. So I’d definitely recommend sizing up. It’s still very comfortable though! The material is stretchy, but not in a tacky way. It’s form fitting in the most flattering way. I’m really glad I bough these to add to my ever growing bell bottom collection. 

 What are some of your goals for the New Year?

    All of your photos are your best photos! I’ve so enjoyed following you this past year… your love, kindness, strength, positivity is so inspiring. Even when you’re having a tough time you don’t drag your followers down, you always share positivity. My best moment was passing my teacher training course, getting engaged, booking flights to China! I hope you had a fantastic New Year’s Eve with your beautiful family

    I’m glad to know they’re making a comeback because there are a few I’ve kept over the years in my wardrobe that I’d be excited to style soon 🙂 I love the way you’ve styled yours here with the ruffle sleeved sweater, it creates a nice cohesive vibe paired with the jeans. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year!

    I’ve been obsessing over blouses with ruffled sleeves lately. This red color looks lovely on you.

    Also, some of my goals for 2018 is to travel more throughout Europe and spend more time volunteering!

    Amazing how a slight twist to an item in the outfit totally changes the whole game! I love statement items and this statement jeans is perfect to finish off the look with a dramatic touch! On point!

    Darling Len, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you had a lovely time with your family. It takes some oomph to wear flares with so much flare, but you pull it off- of course! I look at you and feel like groovn’ to some 70s iconic tune like, Staying Alive- ha! Hope you have a lovely start to the week! Xx
