The Denim Edition

In all honesty, I actually prefer to wear jeans more than skirts. You can tell through my Instagram as I've only been wearing denim. As pretty as dresses and skirts may be, there are just very few occasions that I  can wear them to. My husband is usually dressed very casual so I don't  want to over dress when I'm with him. There are a couple pairs that I  wear non-stop and this pair by Hudson Jeans is one that I absolutely adore.

Sweater: H&M
Denim Jacket: DIY Levis
Jeans: Hudson
Boots: All Saints

I've had my fair share of Forever 21 and Urban Outfitter jeans when I was in college, but those honestly don't last very long. They lose shape after 20 minutes and start to stretch out. Many of them tend to be ultra thin, which don't provide any warmth at all. 

Currently, my favorite denim brands are Paige and Hudson. They fit really well and don't seem to stretch out at all. I would say that Hudson is more stretchy that Paige. The ankle opening for Hudson also tends to be smaller, which I honestly really like.

These 2 brands tend to be quite pricey, usually retailing for at least $150. However, you can find them usually at Saks Off 5th, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Nordstrom Rack for half the price now. I bought my Paige Edgemont Jeans for $40 when Nordstrom Rack had that semi-annual sale. 

What's your favorite denim brand? I'd love to know!

  1. I agree that finding good quality denim is important. You just don't waste as much money that way. I love J Brand and Paige denim. I think I have a few of those or Rag and Bone. But then again I always go back to Levis too.

    I love Denim and I found a Brand: Mustang Jeans, The Quality is Top , I can say that better than Levis and the Prices much Cheaper:)
    Check it out, I think you would Love:)

  3. I've heard so many great things about Hudson jeans. $150 is pretty steep, but I don't mind paying for quality. Your double denim look is on point though babe!

  4. I personally prefer skirts, but when it gets so cold, I just can't leave house without jeans. Love how you styled them!

  5. OMG I could seriously live in jeans too! I love Paige as well. Lately I've been wearing more Madewell because they have a wider selection of high waist jeans. They fit super well too!

  6. I am a total denim girl myself. I could wear jeans all the time if it was allowed. I haven't tried Paige or Hudson but I am a fan of AG Jeans, Rag and Bone and Frame. I have been also loving the "mom jeans" by Lovers + Friends and Grlfrnd. xoxo, Christine

  7. I completely agree with you, love Paige & Hudson Jeans. I am so much more comfortable in jeans than a dress or skirt. Love the look that you put together !

  8. Perfect look dear!



  9. I can't say I have the option of wearing a skirt (well, I do, but I don't, haha), but I love jeans and am always on the lookout for the perfect fit! These look amazing on you and I'll have to see if they have something for guys as well. :)

  10. Love what you did to your denim jacket! Those safety pins are so rad! Because I'm short I need a brand that caters to petite lengths just to fit me perfectly. Topshop never lets me down in that department.

    xo, Jo

  11. I also prefer to wear jeans more than skirts, but in spring and summer a skirt or shorts are also very nice. But your outfit I love. And that sweater...omg so nice

  12. the back detail of this denim jacket is amazing with all the safety pins and stuff! denim will always be a favorite of mine <3

  14. Hello dear!
    I can't live without denim haha. Nice jacket and i love how it's customized in the back. My latest jeans purchase is Subdued and i really love it.. I love J Brand,too.
    Sending love from Italy

  15. Love this casual look on you babe. I think it's so sweet that you dress casual to match with your husband. I also prefer the casual look as well so lately I've been really into the casual luxe style to find a nice middle ground of looking put together but still comfortable.

  16. I'm the opposite as I live in dresses. They're just so easy because there is nothing to match and it's a complete look. That said I do enjoy a good denim jacket and this one is seriously amazing! LOVE!

  17. You look amazing, Maggie! I really love your photos and I've always been a big fan!!! And you know I'm biased now with jeans ;) I would go with James Jeans hehe <3

  18. Such an amazing casual chic! love the jacket!

  19. I have Paige and Hudson's from Marshall's and I live in them. Wearing the Paiges right now <3
