How many pairs of jeans do you have in your closet? Be honest, now, I’ll bet there are even more than you thought! I am embarrassed to admit how many I have, in all styles, colors, and fits. But when I see a new style or a new line that looks good, I am immediately interested. This is how I came across these Universal Thread Jeans by Target.
The Universal Thread Jeans
Browsing through the store (again–this is a very dangerous store for a shopper or a blogger or a shopping blogger! lol!), I happened upon the Universal Thread section. This line includes all kinds of wardrobe pieces but specializes in jeans. They come in a multitude of styles and colors, and more importantly, sizes! For me, that means they also have sizes in “short” as well as regular and tall. This lightwash version with the frayed hems just called my name. I have been very much into the lighter wash for spring as I wait for the warm weather of summer, and I think this is a good color for transitioning.
The lightwash shade tends toward the purplish blue which makes them go really well with this cobalt blue top. The top, by Bobeau, came in a Trunk Club selection recently. I love the adjustable fit with the side-tie drawstrings. It comes in several pretty colors and is moderately priced. A great top for spring into summer!
It’s easy to dress up a simple top like this with a statement necklace. I have had this necklace for some time and I thought the white tassels and blue beads helped tie everything together. You can see a similar one that comes in a few pretty colors here. My good old Gorjana hoop earrings completed the jewelry.
Obviously, I just can’t get enough of this woven circle bag! It just seems to go with everything and makes everything look fresh and summerish. And these super comfy suede wedges are a great neutral shoe for this season.
My review of the Universal Thread Jeans
When I saw the cute styling of these jeans–the frayed hems and the high waist–I decided to try them so that I could tell all of you what I find. Yes, I took one for the team with this purchase!! Haha! These pants have a nice stretch to them as well and feel super comfortable. At a price point of $24.99, you frankly cannot beat them. Like many of you, I have a few pairs of designer jeans in my closet that I really like, but I have to say that these are a steal at this price. Well made with great style at an amazing price: what’s not to like? I plan to add a few pairs of these in other colors to my jean collection and I recommend you try them, too. I honestly think they are a great find.
Give them a try and let me know what you think! I would love to hear about any great finds you might come across as well. Just comment at the end of the post.
Happy Mother’s Day
Finally, this is a special weekend with a very important day of celebration on Sunday. For those of you who are mothers, I hope that you are celebrated for the love and support you’ve given to your kids. And for those of you who aren’t, I also wish a special day of celebration. All women serve as role models in one way or another and deserve to be celebrated for providing love and support to others. I have a special mother-in-law, step-mother-in-law and several other women who I will be thinking of on Sunday. And I will send a special prayer to my mother, who I lost 27 years ago. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and know that she is watching over me. Who are the special women in your life? Be sure to honor them on Mother’s Day.
