The best Levi’s

6G4A7970

You know how people ask, “whats your love language?” Well, good denim is my love language!! That might be a slight exaggeration but I’m such a sucker for a new pair of jeans.  I always have to keep myself from exclusively buying denim.  For the last few years or so since Levi’s have been back on trend I have stocked up on some really good pairs. My Grandpa Olson used to call every pair of jeans “Levi’s” whether they were Wranglers or True Religions, they were all “Levi’s”, how cute is that? Before you buy your first pair of Levi’s be aware that they have little to no stretch, I usually size up one size.  They also rarely run in “tall” sizes so you might be looking at ankle jeans if you’re above 5’8′ or so, which if you cut off the hem can be super cute!  I thought it would be fun to direct you to some of my favorite denim, specifically Levi’s that are for sale right now.  Direct links are in bold and underlined below.

Light wash 501 tapered jeans are seriously tempting me lately! They look to be more of a boyfriendy ankle jean. So good.

These501 skinny jeans just might be my favorite wash that I own.  I sized up in these.

I don’t own a pair of black Levi’s..yet! haha but if I were to own a black pairthese would be the pair.

Free People sells a lot of good pairs of Levi’s..they sell 19 different washes of 501skinnies..my fav washes are the “post modern blues” and “can’t touch this”.

I’ve talked about theseLevi’s shorts before but they are so good! They’re a light wash and you can roll them up to be short shorts or have them unrolled to the mid thigh.  Can’t stop wearing them!

This wedgie high rise pair is so cute! More of a straight leg than skinny.

These Levi 721’s have been super popular!  A few of my friends own these.  They’re so flattering on, and I think they have more of a stretch to them than the 501’s.

I usually go for mid to light washes with jeans but these darker cropped Levi’sare just what I need.

These Levi’s mom jeans from FP are so so cute and look to be a bit more flattering than the traditional “mom jeans”

Last but not least these wedgie straight jeans have the best wash and most flattering fit!

I don’t think I can properly express the true joy I feel from a good pair of jeans through this post, but you get the idea!  Below are links to the jeans I talked about above.  Happy shopping!

Palm Springs

Logan and I just got back from Palm Springs.  We spent the weekend there celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary.  We’ve decided we’re going to retire in Palm Springs one day.  We’re gonna be that old leathery couple that golfs together and sits in the pool all day!

Logan and I had to drive up separately because of his work schedule and let me tell you, my drive there was pretty funny.  I hadn’t eaten lunch before we left, and was starving so I stopped at in n out on the way.  I got a protein style cheeseburger and I got Gemma a burger and fries.  Thinking I was being super clever I stopped at a gas station close by and got Gemmas lunch all ready for her with her ketchup and all her burger broken up in one of those to-go boxes, even filled up the car with gas while I was at it and then started the rest of the way.  WELL let me tell you… eating a freaking protein style cheeseburger from in-n-out with all that spread and grilled onions and whatnot while simultaneously driving and trying to help regulate your 3 year old’s ketchup to burger ratio is nothing short of a HOT MESS! I was literally laughing as I was trying and failing to eat my sad protein style cheeseburger that was getting all over my face, car, and clothes!  But you better believe I got that thing in my mouth, and I would probably cry if there were to ever be footage released of the evidence.  So do yourself a favor and GET THE BUN!! especially if you’re the driver.

Another funny part of the drive were the windmills.  Gemma was so stoked to see those giant things!  She probably asked me 20X “Hey, hey, can we go to those windmills?!”  When I told her we weren’t allowed to get any closer she was super bummed..kinda sad but so cute to see how excited she was about them.

Sooo I thought I would just share some photos from our little get away.  While also sharing links to where we ate and a few things I wore and a list of the fun things we did while we were there!

We stopped in Joshua Tree National Park and its so beautiful!! We were only there for a few hours but I wanted to stay and explore.  Next time!

We stayed here and the hotel had great pools and rooms.

We ate at Trio our first night! So so good.

On Saturday morning we woke up early and drove out to Salvation Mountain.  This has been on my to-do list for a WHILE.  Its a hill in the desert that a local artist covered in adobe and thousands of gallons of lead free paint.  Its covered in Bible verses, christian quotes, and beautiful bright colors and flowers, my kinda place.  It’s a monument of Gods love.  It was really cool to see in person.

6G4A76276G4A75826G4A76056G4A7616

The blue dress I wore and love is under $30! Everyone needs it for summer!

After Salvation mountain we went to brunch at Kings Highway Diner.  Its located in the Ace Hotel and Swim Club.  It was so good.  We shared the pancakes and the Highway Breakfast.

6G4A76426G4A76356G4A76456G4A7641

We also went to Moorten Botanical Garden and got to get our fill of the pretty desert landscape!  Their Cactarium there is so so cute!

We had the best time EVER!   Can’t wait to grow old in Palm Springs one day haha.

Mothers Day Gift Guide

May is a kind of a crazy month with celebrations, we have our anniversary on the 19th, my birthday on the 22nd and mothers day.  Poor Logan right? haha.  In the past I’ve kind of always wished that I could send him a “gift guide” like this to choose from.  So this year I made one that I thought would appeal to ladies of all ages.  This is basically my current wish list!  Send this to your hubs or use it to pick out the perfect thing for your Mom.

Everyday Essentials

Everyday look

Now that I’ve been a mom for a few years, I have found that when I’m doing my daily routines of running errands or playing with Gemma I reach for the same things to wear, its pretty much always a comfortable shirt, jeans and a backpack to throw all of our things into.  I try to mix things up every once in a while but this is what I always come back to.  I thought I would share some of my favorite tee’s, jeans, and backpacks on this post.

SHIRTS-

I love this Boston shirt I have on.  So comfy.  I ordered a S and love wearing it with cuffed sleeves.  I’m really wanting to buy this NYC tee.  Its oversized but I’ve always loved the look of a baggy top and fitted jeans or leggings.  Sol Angeles makes some of my favorite graphic tees. I love this FRESH one, gives me all the summer vibes. Madewell “karaoke club” tee is super fun.  I also have this LA tee that I wear all the time.

JEANS-

I’ve already talked about the Agolde jeans I have on here, but I really do love them.  I like to break up the style of jeans and t-shirts I have so I don’t feel like I’m literally wearing the EXACT pair of jeans and t-shirts all week.  All these jeans pictured are 20% off today. I’ve been loving these skinny AG jeans, the color is perfect. Just might be my next buy.  Alsoooo I’m on the Levi’s bandwagon with every other girl in the country, CAN’T STOP BUYING! These lightwash Levi’s have been calling my name!   I’m also really into these Boyish high rise cropped jeans. So cute with a fitted tee.      agolde jeans

Backpacks –

Anybody thats been around me the last few months knows that this backpack is ALWAYS on me.  Goes with anything, and its the perfect size. This Matt & Nat backpack is nice and simple and the perfect camel color.  This Kate Spade minimalist backpack is a great black basic.  This Rebecca Minkoff backpack is a little smaller but super cute with the gold hardware!  Tell me I’m not the only one grabbing a band shirt and jeans everyday!!

Obsessed with Tom Petty and obsessed with this tee!

This mini dress is perfect for over swimsuits.

This Free People blouse is so perfect for date night or a day at the beach. I think I need it!

Loving on this “aloha vibes only” shirt! So cute for everyday.

This wide leg pair of black jeans is just what I’ve been looking for. I have this pair in blue denim that I love. They’re a similar style.

I have been trying to find the perfect pair of jean shorts for so long. These ones might just be it.

Other favs not picture is this Free People tank! So cute for the beach. I’m also really loving this sweater even though it’s almost summer, a good pull over is always necessary! These Soludos sandals are so so cute and classic.
