Spring Outfits: looking for the BEST light blue jeans for a pear shaped body in time for warmer weather? I found them (and bonus, they're ethically made)!
Thank you to ABLE for partnering with us on this post about light blue jeans.
Spring has sprung, and Los Angeles weather is totally following suit. It's warm, sunny, and perfect weather for getting outside each and every day. My favorite part? Spring outfits. From lighter colors to fun prints……it's time to let the darkness of winter go. This year, I'm all about great basics that I can wear for spring and summer. At the top of my list? Great tees, simple sandals, and the perfect light blue jeans. I'm not gonna lie, I've AVOIDED light blue jeans like the plague for the last few years. Would the lighter color make my thighs look bigger? Draw attention to my widest part? I promised myself I would only wear light blue jeans if I found the PERFECT fitting pair…..and hold on to your hats, I DID IT! I finally found the perfect light denim for a pear shaped body.
Remember those adorable leopard mule shoes I wore all the time last fall? They were a HUGE part of my fall wardrobe and they were from one of my favorite ethical fashion companies, ABLE.
“ABLE is a lifestyle brand focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. We manufacture directly in the communities we wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependency.”
So here's the deal. ABLE works with amazing women in Ethiopia, Peru, Mexico and the US to create stunning leather goods, jewelry, denim, footwear, and clothing items. These artisans are employed in safe and healthy environments and given amazing supports.
Now, the jeans? In addition to being ethically made? THEY FIT LIKE A A DREAM. Seriously. They're the only light blue jeans I've ever tried on that I wanted to wear again and again and again. They're The High Rise in Ileana Wash, and I'm totally obsessed. For reference, I sized up to a 31 (I normally wear a 30) but….these are non-stretch denim, so I wanted a little give. And they were the perfect size. They're perfect base for a million spring outfits.
The really cool thing? ABLE didn't just make my jeans…..they made my entire outfit. From this super comfy olive tee to the slides and YES, even that amazing bag…….it's all ethically made by ABLE. And trust me, the bag? In person? IS STUNNING (and a killer price).
Now here's the fun part. I know, if you don't live in California…..it's probably NOT this warm. RIGHT? So I'm teaming up with my dear friend Molly to show how SHE wears her ABLE denim The High Rise in Raleigh, North Carolina. I love how versatile these jeans are…..and the best part? She's showing how they look in a different wash.
