Fashion Friday: A Casual Look with Straight Leg Jeans and T-Shirt

Hello and happy Friday! If you've been following any fashion blogs or have been reading any fashion related magazines then I'm sure you've heard that straight leg jeans are currently (and for a little while now) having a moment. Today I am styling a pair of straight leg jeans (mine are old - from Gap) and a simple striped T-shirt from Kohls. I was shopping for back to school clothes.... now that my daughter is shopping in the Juniors department I always seem to find something for myself :-) I thought this simple scoop neck tee in the raspberry (or deep rose) color would be perfect for the end of summer season and into fall. I love this color for fall!

My jeans are old,  this pair from Target by Universal Threads looks similar to mine. 

I'm linking to a few options below. Remember: these models are all very tall, so they will  be longer on most of us. 

26.5" inseam
27" inseam uncuffed

Some Cigarette Jeans below. These are a slim straight cut, whereas the jeans above are a relaxed straight silhouette.

28" inseam 
This crop style Prima AG is  26.5" inseam and might be a better fit if you are petite.

The scoop neck t-shirt is by SO brand found in the Juniors department at Kohl's. I bought it in July and can't find a link to it now. This rose colored top from Target is similar but without stripes.

The UGG driving loafers I am wearing were purchased last year at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and are no longer available. A few similar options are linked below. Or you can see all of Nordstrom's Driving Loafers here. Remember, shipping and return shipping is always free at Nordstrom, which makes buying shoes online very easy. 

This shoe is also available in wide widths and several other colors.

This shoe is out of my price range, but may not be for some of you, so I'm including it. 

While it was warm on the day we took these pictures, I decided to bring a thin cardigan along for a fall look. I love wearing cardigans, as a matter of fact I have them in reach all year long because my family members love to run the AC and I am always cold. 

This minimalist style cardigan is from H&M (old). It's made of a thin knit material which makes it perfect for 3 out of 4 seasons. (I need something warmer in winter.) This specific cardigan is no longer available - a few option are below....

I really love this one but the sizes are limited.

My bag is by B.O.C. I really wanted to wear my brown saddle bag again, but I thought this deep red and brown bag would be a good match for the Tshirt. 

For jewery I am wearing a gold-toned necklace I recently purchased from Loft. This is a two piece set and each one can be worn by itself. As you can see the leaves are sized differently and the chain lenghts is different as well, so they can be worn layered. I always seem to go for just one though. 
Speaking of Loft, the store is running a great Labor Day Weekend Sale - 40 to 50% off almost everything. This necklace is an extra 40% off with code: LONGWEEKEND.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. Hope you have a fantastic Labor Day weekend! Not too much planned here. Tomorrow my daughter is going to audition for the Nutcracker Ballet (yes it's that time of the year already!!!). Then we might have to go for another pointe shoe try-on (if the order arrives as expected). It's been a struggle finding a pair of pointe shoes that fit ever since she broke her big toe in the spring. I'm positive though as it seemed like she had a good fitting session last weekend, just had to order a size up to get the right fit.

    Enjoy your weekend and hoping for some beautiful weather!

    I do enjoy fashion, and used to love to watch What Not To Wear. I love wearing cardigans too, and they make a good 'completer' piece, but I am hot natured so it has to be cooler weather for me to wear one.

    Ellibelle said...

    Oh yes, I used to watch that show too, and also a show called "How do I look?" Looong time ago but I so enjoyed them!
    Thanks so much for stopping by, Carole!

    Such a great transitional outfit! I love the colors...especially that tee!

    Ellibelle said...

    Thanks Amy. It's a great color for this time of the year and into Fall!

    Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

    Beautiful outfit!! And I hope her audition goes well! Break a leg! :)

    Ellibelle said...

    Thanks so much Julie.

    What a cute striped tee! i love that colour and it works so well with the jeans! I don't have any straight-legged jeans in my wardrobe I don't think - they are all skinny jeans, i really need to update my denim collection!

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend! The weekday wear linkup is live on my blog, I'd love you to join! :)

    Thanks Mica. It's a great tee for fall but of course I love that color for summer too!

    It took me a while to get on the skinny jeans bandwagen and still don't think they look the best on me personally, so I kept my straight style jeans :-)

    Gina Daily said...

    Perfect early fall outfit! I hear you on cardigans always needing to be in reach year round! If it's not actually cold outside, it's going to be cold inside somewhere!

    mireille said...

    What a pretty delicate necklace! And fun that you found something for yourself while shopping for your daughter!

    Laura B said...

    I love the length of your necklace! This is a great transition outfit for fall! Your tee is super cute too!

    Ellibelle said...

    Thanks Gina! It's funny when I'm usually freezing inside it's a heat wave outside in summer!

    Ellibelle said...

    Thanks Mireille.

    Ellibelle said...

    Thanks so much, Laura!

    IM looking forward to wearing cardigans soon! Love the pink and rose color mic with your straight leg jeans. I like alot of different styles of jeans, skinny, bootleg, and ones with raw hems.

    You look lovely! The long cardigan is so cute, I've been trying to find the perfect one to transition seasons.


    Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom said...

    These transitional outfits are what I'm loving right now with late summer/early fall! I love your straight line jeans, they look great on you and I like the scoop neck tee as well!
