Steppin' Out

I have a post coming up that is full of pictures from our fabulous Thanksgiving weekend, but first I thought I'd show you what I wore to our family pictures on Saturday!

It was such an amazing day {weekend, actually} and it was 70 degrees outside. I've never heard of such a thing so late in November! Though Brynn was simply not having Carter {or his normal shenanigans} on Saturday, Steph manged to get some really good pics of the fam {not that there was any doubt!} Post to come soon... I can't wait to show you!

What I wore...
Sweater: Macy's
Shirt: Express
Jeans: Joe's
Boots: Steve Madden
Necklace: Kohl's

This is what happens when your husband continues to take pictures as you walk back to get your camera.

Oh, and I was so excited that I just had to show you this little trick I found on Pinterest {which I didn't pin, but totally thought I did... grrr.}

Anyway, my Joe's Jeans are not skinny jeans, and therefore they're a bit hard to wear with boots. All you need to do to make this work is fold the bottoms up so that they're now kind of short on you, and then do the old school 80's tuck and tighten at the ankle {come on, you know what I'm talking about.} Don't roll them like you use too though, just tighten them at the ankle. Lastly, you just put your socks over them and they stay perfectly in your boot!
Festive, huh? And they don't "bag" at the top of your boot either.

Happy Cyber Monday! Did you find any good deals?? Personally all the stuff that I've been waiting to order is actually MORE expensive today. Grrrr. Hopefully someone got a good deal!

Oh, and don't forget to check out the special shopping code on my sidebar for 20% off your holiday card order!

I believe the word you're looking for is "peg". I was famous for pegging my jeans back in the day! Can't wait to see the pics!

@ Sara- Is that what it's called?? I've never even heard of that, lol!

Leanne said...

We called it "tight rolling" our jeans? I was also incredibly famous (or maybe infamous) for tight rolling my jeans! You look beautiful! I can't wait to see the actual family photos!
