Everyone has their favorite pair of jeans…

blazer | Old Navy {similar on sale at JCrew}
jeans | Old Navy {similar}
belt as necklace | JCrew {here}
pink stone ring | HivenJ
oui ring | Etsy {similar and love ring in silver
heels | Lanvin for H&M {similar and love these}

My favorite jeans were purchased with my cousin in 2000 when we lived in Austin.  We both bought a pair for $9.99, and they are my go-to comfy jeans.  {She told me that she even wore these through part of her pregnancies!}
Although these are my comfy casual jeans, it’s easy to dress them up.  I added some glitz and glam with a velvet blazer {also from 2000}, sequin clutch, and heels.  The flower belt is so pretty that I wore it as a choker.  {And excuse the Bono pose above!  I just wanted to show you the fun pink interior of my jacket!}
How do you dress up your favorite jeans?

    Oh that clutch really makes a difference! I love love the heels, which is funny because when I saw them for the first time publicized, I hated them!

    Hi Sam,
    First time poster, long time reader :)
    The first picture is STUNNING!!

    I ordered that clutch from J Crew but have’t opened it yet because I was worried the glitter might shed, and am debating whether to return in. Have you experienced any glitter loss?

  13. Samantha says:


    Hi Mary!!

    Thanks for commenting for the first time!!

    I got the clutch when it was a sale on sale so it ended up being ~$35. The glitter does shed. I wore it to a holiday party the other night and there is a some glitter in my car. I’ve decided that I like the clutch enough and the price was reasonable so I wanted to keep it even if there is glitter loss! Hope that helps!

    Have a wonderful weekend! :)


  14. Mary says:


    Hi Sam,
    Thanks for your reply! I am leaning toward keeping it now – (it would be an international return which is always a pain in the neck) I got it for a 30% discount off the sale price, so I think it’s worth keeping solely on your fabulous outfit!

    It’s in its plastic wrap in my trunk…maybe I should bring her in :)

  15. you look absolutely gorgeous, sam. the photos are amazing, and love the little details such as the choker and the blazer with the purple lining. :) i love wearing blazers with jeans also and dressing it up.

  16. Callandra says:

    What a great idea to wear your belt as a choker necklace, you look so beautiful Sam!!

  17. You look fantastic, Sam! I’m also loving your amazing photos. I live in jeans everyday but rarely have the chance to pair them with heels.

  18. cryskay says:

    LOVE this. nothing beats wearing a pair of boyfriend jeans, white T, blazer and a glittery clutch! xx

  19. chicology says:

    You cleverly glam up the casual jeans look :)
    I don’t know if it’s just me, but these days you practically glow! You look so radiant. :D

  20. You should submit this fab outfit to Everybody Everywear today- it would be perfect!

  21. Tali says:

    jeans for 10$! love the knee slit, it’s so trend now I think, with the memorable Alexander Wang jeans. Love the whole look, and *adoring* the flower!! You look so lovely.

  22. That was interesting to have that necklace from a belt :) Love this look!
