    Long-time listener, first time caller. :) Adorable outfits as always! I especially love the ruffled top with the pretty cardigan – so feminine without being too girly. Love it! I’m super excited to link up this month for my very first What I Wore post! I’m still new to the blogging world, but I’m exploring how to take better care of myself this year – and part of that is getting out of the comfy pants and getting dressed in real clothes. :) Thank you for your inspiration!

    Hi Lindsey,

    I love your posts and I can’t wait for these Wednesday WIW posts so I have inspiration for the week. : )
    Can you tell me what style those F21 jeans are in your last post? Every time I go there, the jeans are either super skinny, super ripped, or now they have the new high-waisted mom jeans styles, (which, as a mom I refuse to wear). The ones you have on are perfect and you look great!

    Thank you!

      hey melissa!
      there are several brands within the forever 21 store, and these jeans are “i love h81” brand. there isn’t any other indicator of a style name on the jeans – sorry! and i also got them a couple years ago. but i know what you mean about their selection lately! i found that going into the denim section is not helpful, but looking at the random jeans mixed in with other items tend to be where i find better styles. i hope that helps!

    I love your style :)

    I like the orange sweater the best. Something colourful is so nice on you.

    You look fantastic and pulled together as always! I’m really liking that first F21 top you posted – it’s comfy, but is so pretty and chic at the same time!
