I'm all in for this high waist trend I've been seeing everywhere! They are so feminine and create a great hour glass look while also hiding all those extra tacos... I've been looking for a high waist jean short that feels great and is long enough to where I feel like I'm not always adjusting them. I couldn't believe it when I found this Madewell jeans over 50% off!
BP Bodysuit [new, $12] Madewell Perfect Jean Shorts [new, $29] Valentino Rock Stud Dupe Flip Flops [new, $19] Zara Straw Beach Hat [new, $20] Chanel Cat Eye Sunglasses [secondhand, $30]
I own a couple pairs of Madewell jeans, and looove them. They are so worth the price! They are stretchy and form fitting without stretching out, and have a really long life. If you are looking to purchase a new pair, you can bring in an old pair of jeans (doesn't have to be Madewell!) and get $20 off a new pair! They use them for insulation for Habitat for Humanity, so you are helping those in need as well!
Anwayyy, the shorts are just as great as the jeans I have owned. Like other Madewell jeans, they fit very true to size. I am wearing a size 27, so I recommend going with the size you normally wear.
I'm practically living in these tank bodysuits this summer. They are light and airy, and make all my outfits looks seamless. They come in multiple colors and patterns, so I recommend stocking up because when you spend $50 at Nordstrom Rack you get free shipping! The fit is a bit on the tighter side and because they are thong they come up on high on your hips, so I recommend sizing up one size. I own them in size small and medium, and I find the medium more comfortable.
And of course I love my Amazon designer inspired pieces at a fraction of the price! I've had this Hermes inspired double wrap Apple watch band for 6 months now and it still looks brand new! I get compliments on it all the time. Also loving my rockstud flip flops that look JUST like the Valentino ones, but under $20! Both are prime on Amazon, aka free shipping and free returns, so there is nothing to lose!
