It’s Thursday and time to link up with Jill and Kellyann for Fashion Files. I have a lot to share this week and a new jeans recommendation at the end of the post!
Let’s go back to Friday night! I told some girls to wear their black finery and we ate at our Cuban restaurant which is right next to the karaoke bar. One of my friends wasn’t here for the picture but she arrived in time to sing with us!
A better look at my fit –
I wore a Loft black blouse from last year, my new Chico’s pants, old black heels, and my gold champagne earrings!
Sunday I had brunch with college friends and tried out the rock t-shirt blazer look with my Old Navy distressed button fly jeans and my taupe/grey booties shown in my shoe post yesterday.
Monday for our teacher work day I wore jeans, black tank, old burgundy batwing sleeve sweater, and my Shu Shop sneakers.
I ran errands after the work day and was trying out my new jeans!
For Election Day, I tried out my other new jeans and tried this look:
But settled on this look:
So, let’s talk about my new jeans. I was inspired by Whitney’s Target jeans research, and I had been wanting a black and grey pair. Seriously, click on the red type and read her post. I know a lot of us are struggling with where to buy jeans, what style to buy, what size to order – it is very overwhelming.
I did my favorite which is to use my Target app and I ordered two pairs and took a chance on sizing. If you go high rise, you usually have to go up a size if you have any type of stomach, in my opinion.
These are the black ones I ordered and they have no stretch at all, just so you know. They come in short, you guys!
And, these are the grey ones I ordered which do have some give. They are a very lightweight denim material, too. They come in short, also.
Target Universal Thread does it again! This was all I had for jeans last season. I had four pairs and wore the heck out of them.
And, the best part…they are only $24! Don’t wait because some sizes are low or out of stock. If you like the cut hem look, you could always order long or regular and cut them yourself. I was happy to get short length, though!

Target Universal Thread jeans are my favorite. I just discovered them this year.
They are so good, right? I think all clothing is now 30% off, too! You can catch a really good sale and the quality is like that of a much more expensive brand.
You are making me want to try those leather pants! Where did you get them again?
Chico’s! Try them – they are on sale for $52 I think?
They feel like absolute butter and are warm with a light lining inside. Let me know what you think!
Target has some great denim and right now clothes are 30% off with the circle app!
I just missed the 30% off by ordering too soon, but oh well. They would probably give me the price adjustment!
Jeans shopping can be so difficult but it looks you’ve nailed it! I’m loving all your outfits, especially the one with the poncho! I’m also loving your Rolling Stones tee!
Have a great weekend!
I think it might be harder than swimsuit shopping! Thank you! The poncho look is one of my favorites, but I kept having to mess with it. Note to self: do not wear one on a windy day! Thank you – I have actually seen them in concert so I felt ok about the shirt!
You too and thanks for commenting!

I found a 2nd hand pair of wide leg Universal Thread jeans last month that I am loving! I was impressed. Love your 2 first looks especially. You rock the rock vibe!
Good score! Thank you so much!
I just love how Target has amazing jeans. I definitely get 2 or 3 pair and compare fit that way too!!
PS Popping over from Kellyann’s link. 🙂
Target does it again, right? So smart! Thanks for stopping by!
You look gorgeous in your black finery!
Thank you, Ruth!
Love that black outfit!
Thank you so much!
Great outfits! Love the all black and the rock tee with blazer! I need to find some new jeans too, so I’ll check these out, thanks for sharing! And Whitney too!
Thank you! I actually have been to a Rolling Stones concert so I felt ok wearing it! Ha! Yes – please do check out Universal Thread. Order them because stores are limited.
Love the photo of you all in your “black finery” y’all look amazing. I love the “errands” look with black jeans and clogs! Perfect
Thank you so much! I am having fun styling some of my new stuff!
