How cute is this long, denim pencil skirt! There are so many outfit ideas surrounding this pencil skirt, the options are endless! When the weather is still warm, during the early part of the fall season, pairing this denim pencil skirt with a long sleeve tee is easy and chic. It looks fabulous with a small shoulder bag, hobo bag, or your favorite daytime tote. When the weather cools down later in the season, top the skirt off with a sweater!

Instead of wearing jeans everyday, the denim pencil skirt offers a casual and comfortable option which is slightly dressier than traditional jeans. Love that!

There are many denim pencil skirts on the market right now, but I love this one since it has a dark wash, soft denim fabric, and two slits instead of one. Most of the skirts we are seeing right now have one slit, I prefer two. This gives you more room for walking and since there are two slits on the side instead of one in the front, this skirt is much easier to sit in! haha

How to keep your jeans from shrinking

how to keep your jeans from shrinking

wearing: sunglasses / statement earrings / lilac top / tweed blazer (under $100) / spring nail polish / moon shaped bag / straight leg jeans / lug sole boots /

How many times have you purchased the perfect jeans, with the perfect fit, and the perfect length? Then, you go to wash them, and they shrink! My hand is way up! Thankfully, I have found a solution to the incredibly shrinking jeans; and it isn’t rocket science. Love that!

So, without further ado, here is how to keep your jeans from shrinking. It is quite simple. Although the instructions on the label of your jeans may say warm water is OK, or a low dryer temperature is OK, trust me, it is not. When it comes time to wash your jeans, you should always, without fail, wash them in cold water. The instructions on the jeans will lead you astray; unless they say dry clean only. If that is the case, you have some fancy fabric, and I would not mess with it; take them to the dry cleaners.

After washing your jeans in cold water, never ever, and I mean never ever, throw them in the dryer. Immediately flatten your jeans and hang them to dry. The best way to allow your jeans to dry is to hang them in a place where air can get around them. A shower curtain rod or door hook is typically ideal. You can also drape them over a towel rack; not the rack attached to the wall, the free-standing rack you can move around. I would place the towel rack in the bathtub so the jeans can drip and also get 360 degrees of air.

The downside to air drying your jeans, is that they will be stiff and possibly wrinkled. You can solve this by putting them on for a few minutes and walking around the house. Do a few shallow squats, and voila! Your jeans will be ready to wear.

Express jeans review

OK, so I want to make this perfectly clear, this is NOT a sponsored post. Although I received gifted product from Express back in 2017, this article has nothing to do with that past relationship and is purely my opinion. Now that we cleared that up, I really love my Express denim!

I have always had Express on my radar. It was a fabulous place to shop back in high school, and I have been a customer this entire time. If you have been following along, then you may have noticed occasionally seeing pieces from Express pop up on my blog. This past year, when I was trying to replace my wardrobe due to my weight loss, Express was an easy place to go to stock up on the latest styles of denim and round out my casual wardrobe.

Express has tons of denim styles, so finding jeans in the right styles was easy. In addition to offering a ton of denim styles, they also have jeans in short, regular and tall lengths! Say what?! As someone who is 5’4″ and in love with wearing jeans, my height has always made shopping for jeans challenging. They are always too long, and if I wanted to have them shortened, there are very few styles that can actually be shortened without compromising the bottom half silhouette of the jeans. Flares and boot cut are always challenging, and anything with an interesting hemline would be compromised. Finding jeans in short lengths, is a godsend! In addition, if you are tall, I know you struggle finding jeans which are long enough; my dear friend has this problem!

The jeans I have purchased from Express over the past year, have held up really well in the wash. I wash them on warm and hang them to dry. The sizing is fairly consistent, which makes it easy to buy their jeans online. Express also sends out coupons if you shop with them a lot, and they also have occasional deals online such as buy one, get one 50% off. If you are just looking for one pair, they are usually priced under $100 already, so buying Express jeans is a guilt-free purchase. Love that!

So, if you need to update your denim wardrobe, now that skinny jeans are over and we are moving into a world of straight jeans, flare jeans, bootcut jeans, and wide leg jeans, then Express is a great place to stock up on new styles without breaking the bank. Love that!

Here are the styles I have purchased and love; I am sure you have seen them on the blog! Click on your favorite for shopping information.

What are your favorite styles of denim right now? Are you ready to give up your skinny jeans? I struggled with this one!
