My Favorite Denim Brand

My choice of denim has changed over the years. I love my boyfriend jeans, I love my distressed jean but nothing beats a soft pair of skinny jeans that are stretchy but still hold you in. Denim trends change so quickly, I have been cutting and distressing the hems of most of my jeans but these ones I am wearing are here to stay just as they are.

The brand of denim I prefer has changed over the years also. 7 For All Mankind and True Religion were my go to’s in high school (if I could find them on sale at TJ Maxx or Gabriel Brother’s) along with Express. In college I started to wear Joe’s Jeans and Citizens of Humanity and after college I got obsessed with Frame and Mother. I still love all of the brands above but my current favorite or l’Agence. I only have 2 pair of this brand, this plain skinny pair I am wearing (also in this post) and a distressed pair that I’ve worn a million times (here, here, here and here just to share a few! Those jeans are the ones that inspired me to write this post.).  favorite denim l'agencealice and olivia lavender jacketgorjana earringsalice and olivia lavender jacketstriped turtleneckalice and olivia lavender jacketalice and olivia lavender jacket

The Breakdown:
Kitten heels! I don’t wear these often but they really are more practical but honesty not as easy to walk in as you would think. I’m assuming it is because the heel is so low I feel like there should be a heel but there isn’t so I have to be careful. I love details on this top. I didn’t realize until I got the shirt that the tie at the chest can come undone and can be tied however you like. This lavender blazer I got last year and wore it a few times. I had tried to wear it this fall but couldn’t seem to put it with the right outfit. Now that we are in winter and spring is up next it seemed appropriate to wear this pretty shade of purple.

How I Choose My Outfits For Memphis Grizzlies Games

One of the most requested blog posts I get from you guys is how I choose my outfits for Memphis Grizzlies games. I’m glad I am finally writing this post because that is one of the reason I began to blog in the first place. So many of you wanted to know what I was going to wear to a game and all the details. Now here is my breakdown of what goes through my head. It has changed a bit over the years thanks to Myles and Noah but lets start from the beginning.

I start with the day of the week. If it’s a game during the week I choose to dress down more than if it’s a Friday or Saturday game. Weekend games I like to wear heels since there is a good chance we will be going out to eat afterward. When I say dress down, I’m not wearing sweats and UGGs. I will occasionally wear a sneaker and typically stick to booties, flats or a heel that’s less than 2 inches. If I do wear a casual pant it is a jogger that is in suede or faux leather, sometimes cotton and if that’s the case I up my shoe game and save that outfit for the weekend.

Speaking of weekend, I wear heels on weekend games because it is Friday and Saturday night after all! I choose these games to wear a little more makeup and wear my more fashionable outfits. These games seem to have more in attendance and overall feel more lively. I also dress up more when the game is nationally televised, at least I used to. My husband is usually dressed up more for these games since he has to do media after which is televised. He makes me want to step up my fashion game, haha. Just make sure not to wear the opponents colors!

You may be wondering if I ever wear spirit wear to Memphis Grizzlies games. The answer is yes. I usually save my Grizz attire for playoffs and add a few extra stylish pieces to dress my outfit up.   

A little recap on my game day look thoughts:
// Day of the week
// Nationally televised or not
// Who the other team is

Last year I talked about how I feel at the beginning of the season and you can read that post here. Also, Myles makes a cameo and he is just so cute!!

The Breakdown:
This outfit makes me very comfortable. The boot is chic and has a small heel making it easy to walk in while giving my outfit a semi dressed up feel. My t-shirt and jacket are the same brand which I don’t usually do but I like the message the shirt says and the jacket is comfortable and cool. Of course any outfit with these jeans is a favorites because I love them! Are you tired of seeing them here, here, here and here!?
