Hello girlfriends! Can you even believe that August is already here? Did July even happen?! It's been hotter than heck here in Nebraska but the other morning it was 70 degrees and it secretly made me crave Fall. I do love sweet summertime, and I'm not wishing away the rest of the warm days, but it did remind me that it's time to start mentally preparing for cooler temps. So as we move from Summer to Fall, you must step into the latest denim trend - slits!
Liverpool Side Slit Jeans
Y'all, I am obsessed. A great fitting jean is the lifeblood of every woman's wardrobe and I'm so excited that our holy grail Gia Glider jean by Liverpool debuted a fun twist with side slits. This little detail is subtle and tasteful but brings a bit of edge to a classic pair of jeans. I also love the cropped hem on this version of the Gia Glider. The shorter length makes these so perfect as we transition from Summer to Fall and will look amazing paired with sandals, strappy heels, wedges, tennis shoes, and ankle booties!
Whether it be for work or play, these jeans are going to be your best friend and closet MVP. If you work in a business casual setting and are able to wear jeans to the office, I have two outfit ideas for you!
Option 1: Work in person
OUTFIT ONE: If it's one of those days when you gotta put your boss lady pants (aka these Liverpool jeans) and you've got meetings and presentations on the agenda, pair these jeans with a black pointed pump or classic loafer, a crisp white button down blouse, the Liverpool Fitted Blazer (or whatever fit or color gives you that confidence boost!), and a simple pair of hoop earrings.
Option 2: Work from home
OUTFIT TWO: On the flip side, if your schedule is quieter and it's going to be more of a desk day, ditch the heels and opt for a crisp pair of white tennis shoes and layer on a scoop neck knit tank and long sleeve striped cardigan sweater, both by Liverpool! A tank and cardi combo is ideal for the office because buildings are notoriously freezing and then you melt the moment you step outside. This duo is perfect for going from work to happy hour!
Liverpool is a brand that we truly love, and not just for their perfect pieces and high quality. More importantly, they believe in the retailers they work with. The retail industry was significantly impacted during the pandemic and Liverpool stepped up in a big way. From purchase vouchers to keep stores' shelves stocked, to teaching stores how to produce successful Facebook and Instagram lives, to expanding their collection to make room for the new work-from-home lifestyle; they truly listened and heard our voice. So much so that even the Vice President of the Liverpool brand, Holly Arnesen, mentioned 308 Boutique in an article!
"A lot of them had never done a Facebook Live event," she said by way of example. "We actually did tutorials and helped them learn how to do it and execute it successfully," she added, with retailers often selling dozens of products and garnering hundreds of eyes through these impromptu sessions.
"Some of them took time to build out websites, and I have a store that just launched an app," referring to Holdrege, Nebraska's The 308 Boutique. "I've been doing this for about 30 years, mostly managing major accounts," Arnesen added, "but now, in getting involved in the specialty stores, I've found out how creative these people can be and how much they're sharing their successes with other businesses in similarly dire straits."
308 Boutique is proud to be a part of the Liverpool Family!
