Aztec jacket

one of these days, the wind is going to leave me alone! 

 Jacket: Zara (also eyeing this one)

Blouse: old (similar here, here here, here

Jeans: Mother – exact pair

Heels: old (similar here, here, here) (love these)

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff – clearly my fave cross-body bag 🙂

I’ve been looking for a good pair of jeans for months and months now.  There are a number of things I look for in jeans and I just could not find all of it in one pair.
I haven’t invested in a good pair of jeans in years. I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me well.

Since starting my Gluten free diet I’ve lost weight, sadly, but I’m trying to gain it back (not very successful at it. Any tips anyone?)
And with that, most of my jeans, and other pants, are a bit loose on me now.
Buuut, these Mother jeans are stretchy so once I gain my weight back, I’ll still going to be able to fit in them.

And as I’ve mentioned on IG last week, these are amazingly comfortable and soft.
  I’ve tried a number of different brands, but once I put these on, I knew they were a winner. Probably my new favorite brand (I still love Citizens of Humanity and 7FAM). And I’ve heard these are very similar to COH Avedon. I’m a huge fan of Citizens jeans).

If you guys are looking to invest in a good pair of jeans, do give these a try.

Hope all of you had an amazing weekend!

    I LOVED this outfit when you posted in Instagram and I love it even more today!! I've been gravitating more towards Aztec prints recently but havent taken the plunge yet.. This jacket is kinda making me want to take the plunge 😉 LOVE your style!(PS: The jacket looks waayyy better on you than on the Zara model!)I'll be a dietitian by the end of the summer (once I pass my exam) & i've been trying to gain weight my whole life! My biggest suggestion is just to eat every 2-3 hours.. Take it as a blessing that you can eat pretty much whatever you want (gluten excluded) but go for the healthier fats such as avocado, nut butters, etc. they're calorically dense but still healthy; and experiment with gluten free recipes (but I'm sure your already doing that!) It's tough not being able to eat certain foods, trust me i know, but you'll find options that work for you and everything will get back on track !Hope this helps! ;)Sprinkles&Sequins

      Thank you Liz :)I've been eating avocados a lot lately. Kind of got hooked 🙂 I also recently tried raw walnut butter and cashew butter – not too bad. It's just a matter of sticking to eating frequently, which is hard once it gets hot outside. I'm sure it will happen eventually for me haha

    Love the jacket, but as another reader stated, it's way too hot in Texas already to wear them. I love the fit of those jeans, I tend to splurge on jeans, just because they last me for so long, and my fave right now are Paige jeans, but I will definitely give these a try next time I go shopping for new ones. I may have to try the gluten free diet…I need to loose a few lb's 😉

    I have those same pair of leopard heels and am always fascinated in the ways you mix them into your outfits. I might have to try to pair them with a printed jacket too! –

    Loving the jacket-beautiful! And also loving it paired with the leopard and neutral bag!As for getting in enough calories, the nut butters are great, there are a ton of gluten free pastries at health food stores that are nutritionally dense…have you ever consulted with a nutritionist? it might not hurt just to get more ideas…
