I never in a million years thought I would be raving about high waisted jeans! For most of my life, I have always worn low rise everything – skirts, shorts and basically all of my jeans. Recently I was reading an article by Jessica Alba and she was raving about her new denim label and discussing what different styles of jeans do for each figure. She said for a figure like mine, which is on the shorter side, I should veer towards high rise and flared pants which will help elongate the figure and is much more slimming on a shorter frame. So into the stores I went to test out this theory, and I couldn’t agree more. I came out with these sky high J Brand jeans (seen here) with amazing button details that immediately caught my eye.
I’m typically someone who is a creature of habit and don’t step too far out of my comfort zone, but I thought I would try these out and so far I am loving them. I have also gotten myself into high rise flare denim which will be up on the blog soon and I can definitely tell you, that my blog will be featuring lots of new denim style :). I wore these jeans with my new Zara Blue Velvet Booties which are all the rage this Fall. Shop this look below!

From the moment I come through the door during the colder months, I immediately step into my slippers. It’s so nice to have something cozy on my feet when I get inside from some cold winter weather or if i’m snuggled up on the couch with my coffee in the morning. With the endless options at Muk Luks, I finally went with these festive slippers (seen here), and the lovely ladies at Muk Luks have graciously offered my followers 25% off your entire order with coupon code ‘GILLIAN‘. Happy shopping:)
Nothing screams Fall more than this sleeveless faux suede camel trench by Lucy Paris. My eyes were immediately drawn to the color, waist detail and deep pockets. I was so excited to collaborate with a brand that I love more and more with every piece I try on. With their shopping website coming available soon I wanted to share what is to come, until then shop this look and similar vest below!
I finally got this outfit up on the blog that you may have seen a few times on my Instagram. It seems like more and more designers are following the shoulder-baring trend this season, and I’m loving it. My collection keeps growing! Everyone that knows me knows that I love bodysuits, so you can only imagine how thrilled I was to find two of my favorites combined into one, a shoulder-baring bodysuit by Twenty! Worn with this embroidered high waisted skirt by ASOS and Steve Madden sandals.
