This post brought to you by Levi’s®. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Olive and Tate.
At the beginning of every year, I sit down and write out my goals for Olive and Tate – sometimes they are boring (like, do a better job of filing receipts) and sometimes they are really fun (like, do a better job meeting more bloggers in my area). I am absolutely slacking when it comes to the boring goals but I am on a mission to accomplish my task of meeting more of my Greenville blogging community. 
I’ve been searching our local hashtags, joining more Facebook groups and reaching out via email to the local bloggers that I find on social media. Recently, one of my fave local bloggers, Caroline, told me about her fave local blogger, Lauren, and off I went to stalk the blog, Love Lola.
 Lauren is an amazing photographer so her blog is stunning – she also radiates the most beautiful energy (perhaps because she is a yogi), especially when she is photographed with her sweet babe, Piper. I made a mental note to send Lauren an email and then, along with most of my mental notes, completely forgot to do so. 
Thankfully, fate stepped in and I heard through the grapevine that Lauren and I would both be attending an event together. I knew I had to meet her and thought there would be no better way than to force her to include me on one of her About Town adventures. I love that particular series on her blog and honestly wish I had thought of it myself! She was gracious enough to succumb to my peer pressure and off we went to the back patio of local coffee house, The Village Grind for fancy coffees, donuts and blogger girl talk.  
Because Lauren and I met for the first time when we were both asked to host a styling session at a local VIP Shoppers event, I decided to bring my best “bloggers who coffee” outfit game. And I’m so glad that I did because Lauren was rocking an insane pair of lace up sandals and a denim on denim look that did not disappoint. 
I had to bounce into my office after my date with Lauren so I paired my new go-to distressed white Levi’s® 711 Skinny jeans with a tweed moto jacket, tassel necklace for a pop of color, my go to v neck tee (I own six of them) and nude wedges. While most people can’t rock distressed denim in the office, I’m lucky enough to be The Marketing Girl and can get away with a bit more. 
To top if off, I also wore the same outfit to a design meeting at my house that afternoon and for drinks after – so, I’m pretty confident I can take this look anywhere.
Many of you reached out to me wondering about the fit of the Levi’s® 711 Skinny on a shapely Mom Body such as my own. I’m wearing a 31 in this particular cut and am pleased to report that, despite the low price point, the denim does not stretch out and loosen during wear. In all honesty, the saggy look isn’t flattering and I hate snagging a pair of jeans only to find that I can’t keep them up around my waist by the end of the day. I’m also a huge fan of how they sit on the waistline – they aren’t extremely high but sit a bit below the belly button, so still high enough that I’m not yanking them up all day in an attempt to keep my parts in. 
As a complete bonus, the distressing is very minimal and only on the knees. Sometimes I see a bit of distressing through to the skin just under the pocket area and I am certain that portion of my thigh does not need to be exposed to all of the other moms at Mother’s Day Out. 
My verdict is to head to Macy’s and, at the very least, try them on, but be prepared to love them.

I hope you’ll head over to Love Lola and say hey to Lauren – especially since she was sweet enough to take me up on my demand offer to allow me to chat about her here on Olive and Tate. Be sure to take a peek at the sweet nursery she designed for her babe (um, and every single post in her House to Home archives because her style is just perfection).

Thanks for the pretty pics, Christa Rene Photography!
