Friday Feels – Spring Basics
Hey guys! Welcome to another Friday Feels where I share what I’m “feeling” this week. (This post contains affiliate links).
This week I’m feeling like it’s the year 1998, let’s throw it back together. Hi, my name is Kelly, I’m 34 years old and I still shop at Abercrombie like my High School self. Stay with me here, you may be like what?! but it’s a great place for classic wardrobe staples at a decent price point. Not to mention, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for A&F as they were the first store to carry a 36 inch inseam, which is probably the best thing to ever happen to my 5’9″, 14 year old self (yes my legs basically started in my armpits).
Their jeans are still one of my favorites because they are nice and long and I can typically grab them on sale (they are currently buy one get one half off). If you know me, almost every pair of pants I own ends up getting paint on them from projects around the house, so I don’t like to spend $$ on my everyday jeans. I have them in the 3 colors below (I’m wearing the white pair and the light pair in these photos) and love them. I like the Harper Low Rise Skinny Jeans, but don’t let the name fool you, they are really more of a mid-rise. I promise your booty will not be hanging out. They come in 3 lengths (I wear the long) and fit true to size. The white jeans are hands down my absolute fave white jeans, because they have fake pockets on the front so you don’t get that see-through awkward pocket thing happening.
(You can click the photos to check out each item).
I picked up these cute tops as well for spring, and their boyfriend v-neck tees are a staple in my closet. This cute floral top looks great under a sweater (or a green spring jacket, this is actually a cute shirt from Target but you get the idea), and will be perfect on it’s own in the spring/summer if it ever warms up!
They have great classic tops that are easy to style. Here are a few of my faves –
Ok and these little gingham slides? The cutest thing ever, I love that you can throw them on with a basic tee and jeans and they make you look semi put together. I got them in the 8/9 because I typically wear an 8 or an 8 1/2.
They have them in a few colors, I love the faux leather sandals too.
I snagged a few new pairs of shorts as well, I like that the length on the jean pair is a bit longer. I’m a major hat girl in the summer, because we are out in the boat everyday, and I don’t want the sun on my face. This cute american flag hat is the perfect hide my day 4 hair.
If you are on the hunt for some new comfy wedges this spring, here’s the link to the pair I’m wearing above.
Abercrombie is running some great sales right now including buy one pair of jeans get one half off plus an extra 40% off their clearance items!
I hope it’s feeling spring-ier by you than it is here – Happy Weekend!
I am 37 and I love A&F jeans as well . Also I am curvy and the jeans are so flattering and the color washes are so good .
Yay! Glad I’m not alone shopping at A&F in my 30’s, so glad you love their jeans too!
Congrats on your inseam find! While you have trouble finding the extra long inseams…I’m on the other end of the spectrum. I’ve 5 foot one, and if I find a 25 inch inseam, I’m lucky (still haven’t really found a pair of jeans that hit above the ankle where I’d like). And the search continues!
I’m 5’1” as well. I’ve had luck with Not Your Daughter’s Jeans (NYDJ) at Nordstroms in petite sizes. Hope that helps! They can be pricy but the quality and the fit at the waist is great for me!!
Thanks, Erin! I’ll take a look for sure!
Good tip thanks Erin!
Good luck Kiki, Finding jeans that are a good fit without spending a zillion dollars is definitely a struggle!
A & F….who knew? :-) Love the pocket-less versions.
I know right?! Ha I always feel a little funny tell people A&F when they ask where I bought something ;)
I love those Vince Camuto wedges! Where/when did you get them? The gingham slides are super cute too.
Hey Katie, I linked them right in this post if you click on the bold lettering but they are from Nordstrom thanks!
LOL your legs are like the length of my whole self! Great pics!
Hahaha! Thanks :)
Thanks for the information. I would never have thought of A&F for jeans but will check them out. I love all your choices especially the shoes. Great blog and I love that you have the sources just a click away to make it easy.
Love all your pics! Totally agree about the faux front pockets on jeans. I will check these out! Keep the Friday Feels coming, I look forward to your posts each week!
Faux pockets are a must sometimes, even though I attempt to stick my hands in them a million times still ha!
I will check out your ideas- really like the slides. Adorable. Where did you get the purse? Love it. Enjoy your blog very much. Your home is beautiful!
Hi Peggy sorry I didn’t think to link this for you all! It’s from Nordstrom, last year. I think they actually have a really similar one at Target right now? I keep my laptop in it when I’m running around town, it’s a great catchall bag.
Good Morning. I’m also tall 5’8” and never would have thought A & F for jeans! I’m going to check it out. Spring has arrived in SC and I have been doing a lot of shopping. The floral prints are everywhere and I am loving it ?. Enjoy your weekend.
It’s so hard to find long jeans, I really love the fit of these! Jealous of spring in SC – enjoy!
