I’ve posted about these faux leather leggings on my Insta a few times, but they’re so good, I felt like they deserved an entire blog post!

OK, in all honestly, I had seen these leggings all over the internet for months before I bought them. I swear every blogger in the world was wearing them, but I just wasn’t convinced that they were better than other “liquid” leggings out there. I loved the look of them, but the price tag was definitely throwing me off. These are $98.00, and I just couldn’t justify spending that on a pair of “basic” leggings… or so I thought.

Fast forward to the holidays, and I got a gift card to Bloomingdale’s. My first thought was that I could finally get my hands on these babies, guilt free! YAS! Once I tried them on, I totally understand what the hype was all about. They’re not basic at ALL people. AT ALL. They’re so good and the quality is amazing. Not to mention, they can be washed and lined dried- super easy and I don’t have to stress about ruining them. Another bonus!

Guys, I’ve fallen in love with high waisted mom jeans and I just don’t know how to go back to anything else…. Well, that’s not entirely true. I’m still a die hard skinny jeans fan, because, duh. But, I really have transitioned into ALL high-waisted jeans. I literally cannot wear low waist anymore. Anyone else? How did we get by for so long? I put a pair of my old jeans on the other day and literally just felt like my butt crack was hanging out… eeek. NO. I just can’t. High-waisted jeans for life.

Who’s with me?? Everyone? Great.

I thought it’d be fun to share some really cute pairs of mom jeans that I know you’ll love as much as I do. My favorite pair is from Abercrombie, and I literally don’t stop wearing them. They make the booty look…. pretty great. Trust me!

And before we move on to the fun stuff, I feel like I should break down the difference between mom jeans/girlfriends jeans and boyfriend jeans. It’s pretty simple, honestly- a mom jean is just a little more fitted and feminine than a boyfriend jean. Sometimes a boyfriend jean can be too baggy, and a girlfriend or mom jean fits tighter through the hips and has a straight leg. And in my opinion, they’re much more flattering in a cropped length, instead of full.

So that’s the deal.

Guys, I was about to be the best blogger and actually have this posted in time for you to BUY MY DAMN SHORTS BEFORE THEY SOLD OUT. But I failed you. Yet again….. I’m SOWWY. Ugh. I swear when I started writing this post, they were still available online in all sizes. I s-w-e-a-r. But then I checked, and bam, they’re gone. I bet everyone scooped them up for Coachella. FACK.

However, to try and make it up to you, I did lots and lots of digging to try and find you an alternative option. And I think I found some goodies. OR, maybe this will give you some inspo anyways, or maybe you have similar paperbag waist shorts in your closet and you’re thinking “WTF do I wear with these?”. I got you, boo!

I’m going to Stagecoach this year for the first time ever and I’m SO excited! I’m going with five girlfriends and it’s going to be the best. Fun fact- Country music is my favorite. There is something about it that just makes my soul happy. I can’t wait to be singing along to my favorite songs, drinking endless amounts of beer (yas!) and making memories with my babes!

Coachella is already underway, and although it’s not really something I want to ever go to, I like seeing everyones outfits. I get so much inspiration for the rest of the year! I feel like festival season is the new fashion week. I mean to be honest, I get more REAL LIFE outfit inspiration and trend direction from Coachella and Stagecoach then I do from high end designer or couture fashion. Anyone else? I’m more likely to wear denim shorts with fishnet tights this year than I am to wear a crazy over the top gown and a bird on my head or some shit. Right? I mean, you might be able to see that at Coachella too. Ha!

Like most people, I’m OBSESSED with face masks! I have so many in my medicine cabinet and am always looking for new brands. That’s probably my favorite thing to shop for at Sephora- shopping for makeup on the other hand, is so overwhelming. I think I’m the only woman who thinks that way…ha!

I feel like face masks are like shoes- you can never have too many and there are different masks for different occasions, for different skin needs, etc. So I like to keep stocked up for any little skin need that might pop up- acne, dry skin, fine lines, blah blah. All the good stuff. My skin tends to be super complex- it’s dry, but oily, I have acne, and the wrinkles are becoming more apparent now that I’m in my 30’s. YAY for getting older… it’s so fun…

The ones below are my favorites that I SWEAR by and use regularly to keep my skin in check, but I also wanted to compile some others that I’ve had my eye on to try ASAP so they’re all linked below!

And if you’ve got a mask you like, share with my on Instagram! I’d love to know which masks I should add to my never ending list.

I’ve mentioned it a few times here and there, but if you don’t know, I’m the Senior Buyer of Accessories and Jewelry at Forever 21. That means, my team and I are responsible for the styles you see, and buy, in stores and online. It feels weird to put that in writing on my blog every time… I don’t know why, I guess it’s always been something I’ve kept super separate from Worship Worthy. But lately, when I’ve met people or people have asked what I do, they’ve been surprised and have encouraged me to share it a little bit more, so here we are!

Most people think that being a Buyer means that I basically shop for a living. And to an extent, you’d be right. But there is also so much more that goes into it. My job is SO much fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Essentially I work on a daily basis with vendors that provide us products, and they own factories overseas to produce the goods. They send me samples, or I develop samples with them, we the decide which items we are going to buy and take into stores and from there I am involved with what colors to buy, how many units we need, what the retail price should be, etc. So as much as I am working creatively with accessories, I’m also deep into Excel sheets, financial reports and analyzing data.

My job is incredibly fun, and I’m so thankful to be where I am. I literally dreamed of being a Buyer in the fashion industry since I was 12… yes, 12. Coming to California to live my dream still feels surreal. It’s a lot of hard work, but I’m so grateful.

I thought it would be fun to share the styles that I have bought for F21, that you can get your hands on RIGHT NOW! I have to admit, it’s crazy to see these styles live, and real. Makes me so happy to see them making others happy- and proud.

I hope you love these pieces as much as I do!
