Everyday Style With Camouflage Print

Top: Sanctuary | Jacket: Love Tree (similar) | Jeans: Good American | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) | Purse: Amazon (similar here & here) | Sunglasses: Quay | Earrings: Nadri | Bracelet: Nordstrom Rack | Watch: Citizen

Marc always jokes, “where did you go?!” as he gazes right past me whenever I show up wearing camouflage print. I roll my eyes, and he laughs at his joke. I have to confess; I have an obsession with camouflage print. #sorrynotsorry I mean, it’s just so easy to wear and such a versatile print for being so distinct. I wish you could see this shirt up close, it’s made of 2 lightweight breathable layers. It’s one of those transitional pieces that can be worn all year long because the material is light enough for spring/summer but thick enough for layering during fall and winter. This top is a great piece to wear open over a dress and booties during summertime.

I FINALLY found a fantastic pair of true black jeans that don’t fade and have the perfect amount of stretch! Ugh, I’ve been searching for so long. It’s tough to explain how big of a deal these jeans are so let me share a list of everything I was looking for in a single pair of jeans.

Jeanette’s black jeans list of requirements:

  • true black
  • tapered ankles
  • perfect amount of stretch
  • good fit through the hips, thighs & calves
  • front pockets (a lot of black jeans have faux pockets)
  • must be actual jeans (not denim leggings)
  • snug fitting waist (no gap, when I sit)
  • ample room in the back (aka doesn’t squish my butt)
  • won’t fade after the first wash (or after the 20th)
  • won’t stretch out after an hour of wear
  • won’t sag
  • under $150

I think you can agree, that’s a long list. These hit every mark, and I’m obsessed! If you’re new to the Good American brand, make sure to size down at least one size (possibly 2), they run big.

Lastly, I have to mention my accessories really quick. I get so many compliments on these crawler earrings and so many questions on these sunglasses. I linked both exact pairs. The earrings are my go-to pair; they go with everything. They look very high end but are only $40 and plated in 18k gold. These Quay sunglasses are also a go-to; I wear them literally every single day. The squared oversized look pairs well with dressier, glam looks but the thin, matte frame makes them perfect for casual, everyday wear. My purse is a Chanel dupe and is made of vegan leather. It’s only $21! I linked this exact one and a few other similar ones up above.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks

1. Nordstrom Lingerie Moonlight Pajama

2. Zella High Waist V-Back Ankle Leggings

3. J.CREW End on End Sleep Shirt

4. Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

5. Spanx Power Short Mid Thigh Shaper

6. Spanx Arm Tights Crop Top

You guys, these pajamas (#1)  are THE BEST. It’s easy to see why they’re a Nordstrom anniversary sale best seller. They’re so incredibly soft and the material is stretchy and just super comfortable. I did a try on session with everything I bought from the Nordstrom anniversary sale. In case you missed it, you can watch it in my instagram story highlights under the style category. I spoke about the style and fit of these pajamas along with several other favorites.

If you’ve not yet tried Zella leggings, you have to take advantage of the sale and pick up a couple pairs! I listed my 2 current favorites, picks 2 & 4. Zella is one of my favorite brands for cute workout clothing. Their pieces are so well made, comfortable, and perform really well. The red zella leggings are to die for. The mesh insert design is so cute, they have a 4-way stretch, and I’m absolutely loving the high waist. If your leggings begin to sag as you’re working out, especially during running, try a high-waisted legging, and of course make sure you’re wearing your correct size. I found that ever since I started wearing high-wasited leggings, I don’t have that sagging problem with them when I run. By the way, I wear a size 8 jean and I got the red zella leggings (pick #2) in a size medium and they fit perfectly.

If you’re looking for shapewear, and even if you’re not, get picks 5 & 6— they’re total game changers! I’ve had the power short midi thigh shaper for over a year now, I wear it under all my dresses. It perfectly smoothes everything out so you get long, clean, smooth lines; it really makes all the difference! I recommend this piece to everyone and it’s on sale right now for under $25. It’s probably my favorite piece of shape ware I’ve ever owned.

The spanx arm tights are also amazing but in a totally different way. I have chubby arms so when I first heard about the arm tights, I was all over it. They really help smooth everything out and they’re perfect for wearing under sleeveless tops and dresses without adding any bulk. Like I said, these are a game changer.

6. COCONUTS BY MATISSE Walk On Bootie

7. Nadri Edwardian Ear Crawlers

I really wish there were more vegan leather shoe options included in the Nordstrom anniversary sale. However, the few that I did find, I absolutely love. Pick #4 is perfect for summer and fall outfits, especially since western style pieces are going to be a big fall trend. Pick #6 is just perfect for fall and winter outfits. They’re such a classic over the knee boot. I actually purchased a very similar pair during last year’s anniversary sale and I wore them with everything, as I plan to do this year. You can see how I styled those similar boots here and here.

I also purchased pick #7 and I love them even more in person. I showed these crawler earrings in my instagram stories, you can see them in my highlights under the style category. I love the effect of wearing multiple earrings without having all those extra piercings so these crawler earrings are perfect. I also love that this pair is plated in 14k gold.

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is the perfect time to buy a pair of Hunter rain boots (pick #5). These boots are my favorite of all the rain boots I’ve tried thus far. I have 3 pairs of them and I LOVE them. They are so useful during the rainy season, and a must have if you live in a rainy climate. They are super well made, VERY durable, and stylish! They’re a little on the pricier side but I alway recommend them when I’m asked about rain boots because I really think they’re worth every penny. I’ve worn them in flooded areas here in Las Vegas during the rainy season, I’ve walked the rainy streets of Seattle with them, and even worn them in the snow during Utah winters. They’re held up marvelously and still look good as new, love them!
