We finally have sunshine here in the San Francisco Bay Area! Our spring weather was so crazy cold. It felt like late fall instead of late spring. Last week we had fog and 60 degree temperatures, this week we have 90 degree weather. It is quite a change!

Since sunshine is naturally cheerful, I felt like wearing a happy, yellow top to kick off summer vacation when I met my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun for lunch, and of course, blog photos! I felt like the cheery yellow hue represented summer sunshine.

We snapped a few photos on the streets of Campbell, and then enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Flights on Campbell Ave. If you are local, and haven’t eaten there yet, it is a must-do! They have a fun menu you can mix and match, and a hip atmosphere. You will love it!

Our lunch conversation consisted of our favorite brands to take on vacation with us this summer, and New York Fashion Week! It’s never too soon to start talking about fashion week. After all, it’s the biggest fashion gathering of the year; well, technically it happens twice a year, but who is being technical?? haha, I’m not!

I’m so excited summer vacation starts this week. Has summer vacation started for you too?

Have you been on the hunt for jeans that give you the right curves? I have! When Royalty for Me contacted me and asked me try out their “Wanna Betta Butt” line of denim, I was thrilled! These jeans help give you curves in the right places. Love!

I am always on the hunt for comfortable jeans that fit well. The fabric on these Royalty for Me jeans is soft and comfortable. They fit really well too. That’s always a plus! They also happen to be available in regular, petite, and plus sizes! Love that!

These skinny jeans are really comfortable; and they can be rolled up, tucked into boots, or worn straight. I normally wear a size 8 or 10 (28-31) in jeans. These are a size 10 and they feel like the right size. If you are between sizes, definitely order the larger size to be safe. You can find the dark wash skinny jeans online here.

This is a great pair of classic black, skinny jeans. They can be paired with high heels at night, or with boots during the day. I know I will get a lot of wear out of them! These run a little bigger than the dark wash. Although I am wearing a 10, I feel like an 8 would have fit better. They are on the loose side in a size 10. If you order black, and are between sizes, order a size down.

Royalty for Me “Wanna Betta Butt” bootcut jeans

This is my favorite pair of the three; the bootcut Royalty for Me “Wanna Betta Butt” jeans! I love a 1970s vibe, and the fabric is really soft! The bootcut jeans run true to size. I am wearing a 10, which I feel like fits really well. If you are between sizes, order the larger size.

All three of these jeans are really comfortable. The fabric is soft, and the fit is great! Royalty for Me has “Wanna Betta Butt” jeans in regular sizes, petite sizes, and plus sizes! This means there is a size for everyone! Love!

Embellished denim flares for spring 2018

One of the biggest trends in denim this spring season is the embellished denim trend. I have always loved embellished denim, but have always been a little fearful that they would be hard to wear; or that I would somehow ruin the embellishments on the first day I wore them.

Now that my kids are getting older, I feel like I can wear nicer things without having to worry about getting my kids accidentally getting me dirty, or grabbing my clothing and tearing something. I have to admit, I have been pretty lucky. Although my kids have stained my clothing with pasta sauce covered hands, mud covered shoes, and spilled milk over the years, out of all three of my children, only my oldest actually broke something. When she was a toddler she grabbed my necklace and broke the chain. I think that is pretty good considering I have three active kids! But I digress. . .back to embellished jeans for spring!

I have always loved having a 1970s vibe in my personal style. So, when I spotted these embellished denim flares for spring, I thought they were the perfect pair of jeans for me to rock the embellished denim trend this season. Although flares aren’t the hottest denim silhouette this season, they are considered a classic style and can be worn this spring despite the fact that boyfriend and girlfriends jeans are the IT styles of the season. Flares are a great alternative to boyfriend, girlfriend, and cropped jeans.

This pair of embellished denim flares has a combination of embroidery and bead-work. The embellishments are full of color, and it is fun to pick up on of the colors and accessorize it. I pulled the yellow for my nails, and the mint green for my earrings. I went with my favorite go-to black tee, because, well, it’s is really comfortable and I love how it looks.

These jeans will be fun to wear throughout the season. They can be paired with platform espadilles and sandals. They can also be paired with all different colors of tee’s for the warm weather.
