The good news: Fabletics has a new sale section and one of my all-time favorite Fabletics tops (Tranquil T, above) is in it for $13.95.

The bad news: You have to spend $50 to get the sale prices. (The top above is $20 at regular price). 

Whether you buy it at the sale price or the regular price, this top is WORTH IT. Especially with fall around the corner. It’s lightweight and flattering and it’s CYA (Covers Your Ass) compliant, therefore perfect for wearing with leggings and boots. 

If you haven’t signed up for Fabletics, please consider using my referral link. I really appreciate it!

Hi Jaclyn! As much as I hate to start thinking about the fall, I'm being forced to.. and I'm on the lookout for some new jeans. As much as I've been a strong proponent for American Eagle the last few years, I'm struggling with their quality and would like to invest in some better denim if possible. However, my long inseam (35/36) seems to be impossible to find in skinny cuts. Do you have any go-to spots outside of AE, being a tall, thin girl yourself? Thank you!

- Asked by hiemilychristine

I don’t spend a lot of money on jeans so I may not be the best source for this (I love AE’s jeans too!) but I’ve had a lot of luck with the Tall/X-Long inseam denim from Gap. They’re long enough on me that I can cuff the bottoms.

The 1969 denim from Gap is the best quality for the price (especially since they have promo codes available so often). These ($69.95) are a perfect medium wash. Their black 1969 high-rise jeans are great too ($69.96). The 1969 Legging Jeans are CRAZY comfy. I’ve been eyeing this new pair ($80). I love the color. Their medium/dark blue color is marked down to $42 (from $70). You can get $25 off $125 orders or $50 off $150 orders today with code SMART

Gap’s sizing is annoying (it varies a lot, even from wash to wash in the same style) so if you buy online, I suggest getting your usual size and one larger or smaller depending on what most of the reviews suggest and returning the one that doesn’t fit.

I'm looking for cute graphic tees that aren't childish to go with my new leather circle skirt and chunky jewelry. Any ideas? Thank you!

- Asked by tinichic

I love Swell’s selection of graphic tees. They look slouchy and comfortable and the prices are great. This long-sleeved one is $27. This moon-themed one is pretty ($24). This trendy arrow print baseball tee ($29.50) is fun. This boyfriend tee might look perfect with your skirt ($22.50). Here’s another option from Volcom ($29.50). 

There are some fun options in J.Crew Factory’s graphic tees section too. You can take 40% off J.Crew’s sale items with code TREAT, so search through their marked down tees—there are some really good shirts, like this Bon Temps tee ($42.50) or this Fantastique tee ($38.50).

Recently (in Shorts)

I’ve been wearing American Eagle shorts all summer thanks to their frequent sales. They are so comfy. The only drawback is that sizing can be hard to figure out (they vanity size in some styles, not so much in others). Here are my favorites (clockwise from top right):

The Boyfriend style is versatile—they look good with a sweater/sneakers or with sandals and a tank. They’re cut a little longer. The Shorties and Midis often have more stretch denim options than the other styles. The Hi-Rise Festival shorts are cut higher on the outside—really flattering.

My favorite bra in all the land—Aerie’s unlined style—is marked down to $20 (from $30) right now. I haven’t yet found a *real* bra as comfortable as this one is. (It’s not a super supportive style, though it does have underwire.) They also have a few sizes left in last season’s version ($17.99) and in the mesh striped version ($14.99). 

P.S. The more I type the word “bra,” the weirder it’s looking to me. Bra. Bra. BRA.

Hi Jacyln - could use some help finding a new pair of jeggings. Would like to spend under $100, darker rinse if possible, and at least a mid rise waist to hold in my mommy tummy. I'm looking specifically for ones that are super tight at the ankle, so will look great with my new booties/short boots I procured from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Yay for getting excited about fall fashion! Thanks in advance!

- Asked by amlevi

For budget-friendly jeggings, you really can’t beat H&M’s $17.95 treggings. They are SUPER comfortable and have a mid-rise fit. The faux pockets make them convincing enough to pass for real denim, but these have a legging-like fit and feel. 

The other jeggings I can personally vouch for are AE’s hi-rise jegging. They are comfy and flattering (the high rise fit keeps hold everything in). The super-dark Clean Rinse wash looks way more expensive than the $44.95 price tag. (Watch for regular sales on these too.) The slightly lighter Dark Wash is a perfect classic denim color. 

AE released a new fit this season too—the Sky High Jegging ($44.95). The super high rise fit looks great. It’s available in three washes. Rinse Indigo is a nice dark color. 

Two other ideas: Madewell’s Legging Jeans ($98.50) get amazing reviews. I love the way Gap’s new 1969 Stretch & Recovery Legging Jean looks ($79.95, get 30% off with code SUN).

Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


The Nordstorm Anniversary sale is huge—with thousands of items marked down—but I searched through for some of my favorites and discounted fall/winter basics that you could wear over and over again. 



I can’t recommend Zella leggings enough. Even if you don’t plan to wear them to work out in, you should grab a pair to wear with boots this fall. 

  1. Zella ‘Live In - Streamline’ Reversible Mesh Inset Capris, $31.90 (from $48)
  2. Zella ‘Live In’ Capris, $28.90 (from $44)
  3. Zella ‘Live In’ Eclipse Space Dye Capris, $31.90 (from $48) - The space dye pattern is one of my favorites they have. The full-length leggings aren’t marked down, but these crops are! 
  4. Zella ‘Live In’ Reversible Capris, $28.90 (from $44)
  5. Zella ‘Live In’ Reversible Leggings, $33.90 (from $52) - The pair I bought over a year ago still look brand new. 
  6. Zella ‘Double Scoop - Ocean Stripe’ Tank, $24.90 (from $38) - I love this striped tank. It’s so long! 
  7. Zella ‘Live In’ Leggings (Cross Dye), $37.90 (from $58) - If you want to get away from black, these cross dye leggings are fun. 
  8. Zella ‘Live In’ Reversible Leggings (Plus Size), $33.90 



  1. Nike ‘Internationalist’ Sneaker Back and Front, $56.90 (from $85) - These would look great with distressed skinny jeans this fall. 
  2. Halogen ‘Marlie’ Calf Hair Pointy Toe Pump, $59.90 (from $89.95) - These pumps are also available in a few other colors, including leopard. 
  3. BP. ‘Train’ Wrap Belted Bootie, $79.90 (from $119.95) - These are a good dupe for last year’s popular Rag & Bone booties. 
  4. Steve Madden ‘Ecntrc-c’ Snake-Embossed Slip-On Sneaker, $59.90 (from $90) - SUCH a good deal. 
  5. DV by Dolce Vita ‘Cactus’ Studded Bootie, $99.90 (from $150) - I’ve found Dolce Vita boots/booties to be really comfortable so if you want a pair that you can walk in all day, these will probably do the trick. 
  6. Yosi Samra Ballet Flat in Leopard or Navy, $51.90 (from $79) - You’re probably sick of hearing me talk about these flats but they are SO GOOD. 
  7. Nike ‘Free TR Connect 2’ Training Shoe, $72.90 (from $110) 



  1. Lush ‘Perfect’ Tunic Henley, $28.90 (from $44) - Great price and I like that you could wear it casually (untucked with leggings/boots) or tucked into a skirt. Available in lots of colors. 
  2. Caslon Drape Neck Zip Cardigan, $44.90 (from $68) - I have a cardigan/jacket similar to this and I wear it all the time. 
  3. Tildon Ruched Long Sleeve Dress, $36.90 (from $56) - This looks so comfy. 
  4. BLANKNYC Quilted Faux Leather Jacket, $98.90 (from $148) - This is one of the best faux leather jackets I’ve seen. The back detail is pretty. 
  5. KUT from the Kloth ‘Jennifer’ Ponte Knit Five Pocket Skinny Pants, $45.90 (from $69.50) - I have some KUT from the Kloth pants and they are really comfortable and flattering. 
  6. BP. High Waist Seamed Moto Leggings, $24.90 (from $38) - These are fun. 



  1. Cole Haan ‘Cassidy’ Wraparound Strap Boot, $184.90 (from $278) 
  2. Donald J Pliner ‘Devi 3’ Boot, $259.90 (from $398) - The sticker shock is real with these, but they get GREAT reviews.
  3. Halogen Flap Pocket Convertible Satchel, $151.90 (from $228) - A good commuter bag option.  
  4. Michael Kors ‘Bailey’ Chronograph Bracelet Watch in Silver ($149.90 from $225) or Gold ($166.90 from $250) 
  5. rag & bone/JEAN ‘Chamberlain’ Stand Collar Step Hem Jacket, $159.90 (from $242)

Everlane’s new Everlane x Langley tanks were released today! They’re priced so well ($24 for the drape tank on the left, $28 for the muscle tank on the right). Both are available in black, cream and navy. I love the length of the drape tank and the muscle tank is a good style if you want a higher neck and prefer to wear a regular bra with your tanks. (Though I think you could wear a regular bra with the drape tank too!)
