Happy Wednesday. I have been patiently waiting the arrival of my SHOPBOP purchases from the big sale going on right now. Make sure to check my snapchat (@meetatthebarre) to see all the fab finds. In all my searches around town for blog inspiration, I drove by this mural and immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. I also wanted to give mural credit to hoxxoh you can also follow him on instagram. Such beautiful local art right? I had filled y’all in on my previous Fall trends post that flare jeans are back. I am rather picky about the fit and tried on no lie 10 pairs at Nordstrom until I found the perfect pair. I had a very patient gal helping me that is for sure. I narrowed it down finally to this pair by Hudson, mainly due to the rinse and fit. They aren’t over the top 70’s start breaking out the braided belts kind of flares but a more tapered and then tasteful let out.
Flare Jeans Are Back
How to wear them you ask? Well, lots of different ways. What I liked about this pair is that it has two front pockets which allows you to tuck shirts in and still give some coverage in the front. They are just high waisted enough, without being those terrible mom shorts length that all the youths are wearing. C’mon you know what I’m talking about! Can we start a petition or something to have those never be worn again? I picked up this top from Free People which hits right at the perfect line to the high waist of the flare jeans.
Sizing guide tip! These run big. I’m usually a dead on 28 in all jeans and I sized down to a 26. I mean……way to make a gal feel good. I also found this dead ringer under $30 pair if you don’t want to full commit to the trend. Like you want to dip a toe into the flare trend without financially committing to it yet. I mean how spot on are they? I have been hounding the website and they just came up. I guarantee they are going to sell out quickly so jump on them.

I love the back of this top. You can wear it with a tank or a fun lace bralette (I picked it up from the sale).
Braid tutorial will be up soon! No extensions. I had that question on instagram the other day. I don’t have a length and style number. I have been loving this gradual more natural color lately. As I know my mother does as well.
So what are you thoughts? Are you excited to kick out the skinnies for a little while? I didn’t think I would be as on board with this but it was so fun to switch it up to the flare jeans from the regular tight leggings. All of these pieces are included in the SHOPBOP sale! It continues until the 15th tomorrow so jump on it!
