Styling Notes: Happy Spring! Spring here in Cincinnati has been all over weather wise. That’s why for this series I am happy to showcase my denim look. Of course denim can be worn anytime of the year.
However, as we transition in weather, I believe denim is a great way to alternate between those cold mornings into warmer evenings.
I styled my look with a simple grey sweater from Target and jeans from Torrid. I pray high waisted jeans never go out of style. If they do, oh well, they’re my go to look! Torrid has one of my favorite styles of jeans for plus sizes. They can be a bit pricey but definitely worth the price, if you want a pair of jeans that’ll last!
This look is effortless but still stylish. It’s my jump into spring and ready for summer look!

Styling Notes: Recently on social media Gen-zers have started the great denim debate, favoring straight denim over the super skinny jeans millennials know and love. It’s so crazy how something as basic as denim is causing such a dispute. That’s why for this month’s Ageless Style post I was interested to know where every Ageless Style gal stood when it came to their favorite cut of denim.
For me, I’m a skinny denim girl till I die!! Number one reason, I don’t care what anyone else says, they are the best denim to pair with any shoe!! I know there are people who will disagree, but I’ve tried a flat on with my straight denim and my skinny denim and it just hits differently with the skinny!!
Styling Tip: Whatever your denim choice, remember to always wear what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! Denim is such a great classic piece, you really can’t go wrong. Buy a cut that suits you and your style. For me, that’s skinny! If you need any skinny denim outfit inspo hop on over to my insta, I’m constantly wearing them on the feed!!
40’s Blogger: That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy | IG: prissymissydoll
Bio: For those new to my blog, I’m Lesa, better known as Prissy Missy. I am the misfit, quirky fashion-obsessed enby from That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy. When I am not empowering or encouraging others with fashion and flair, I can be found with copious amounts of coffee while helping others with their homeschool journey. I may be a bit eccentric, but hey, that’s what makes life interesting, right?
Styling Notes: When you think of denim, you think jeans and jean jackets, right? While my denim jacket collection is still quite functional and impressive, I might add (Okay, so I have a small obsession with Torrid Denim jackets), my jeans selection is pretty much non-existent at the moment. I had a baby about six months ago, and with being busy with the baby and breastfeeding, I weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant. Needless to say, a large portion of my denim collection is now in my consignment pile.
However, I still like to wear jeans and still like the skinny jeans look, no matter what’s been said about them on social media lately! So I found some really cute denim jeggings that pull up instead! These are great for weight fluctuations as the elastic works with you if you are losing weight or is forgiving if you put on a few pounds. Needless to say, these are a must have wardrobe staple!

Styling Notes: Happy spring everyone! I’m back at it again with my Cali demi-boot cut jeans from Madewell, this time in crisp white. This cut of jeans has been my latest obsession although I’m still a fan of classic skinnies, and love to play with the new wider cuts! This pair fits true to size and passes the all-important “no see-through” test. For a classic black and white look, I paired the jeans with a black tank and layered a leaf-print, puff-sleeve, split-neck blouse on top. While it’s out of stock in stores, it is still available to rent on BR Style Passport. I’ve also linked similar options below. The nude slides nearly disappear on my feet and keep the focus on the rest of my outfit. While black would have worked as well, I prefer the leg-lengthening effects of nude.
My accessories are all black and linked below: belt, sunnies, and bag. The Chanel classic double-flap handbag in black lambskin was an amazing and much-treasured gift from Natty Guy. While costly, iconic handbags often hold their value (and sometimes even appreciate) over the years. If you love the look but hate the price tag, I’ve linked some look-for-less options.

I blog primarily about fitness, nutrition, and motivation but I also love to bring my passion for fashion and beauty to my followers as well. Most women in my age group feel forgotten and I like to remind them of their vibrancy and vitality.
Styling Notes: What I love most about denim jeans is that they’re chameleons — they can be adapted to any occasion with the proper pairing. I have many pairs of denim jeans but I definitely have favorites, like the pair I’m wearing in this photo. These fabulous jeans are made with incredibly soft denim in a light wash that screams spring and summer. I purchased these Martha Stewart jeans from QVC last year and I just don’t want to take them off. Usually I wear these jeans casually with a tee shirt, but I love to add a pretty top like this beautiful cold-shoulder blouse from Vince Camuto. Perfect for an outside dinner date. I finished the look with silver bangles and hoops and these fab leopard print slides for a pop of interest.
Styling Tip: Wear what you like! Most of the fashion mags and fashion gurus have stated that skinny jeans are out this year. Well, they’re not out for me. My styling tip is to wear what you like, the way you like. Never allow another to dictate your style!
Thanks so much for your likes, shares and follows! Until next time,

Hi Betsy. I appreciate what all the girls said about still being fans of the skinny jean. I think the style is best suited to me. I love your outfit, because although I love wearing jeans, I tend to lean towards a dressier style and to me, the dressier blouse you are wearing really sets off the outfit. I love the Channel bag that you got from your hubby. Tim bought me a beautiful bag in Italy, several years ago, that I love, and carry all the time. Thanks for sharing another enjoyable post. xx
Christina, Thanks so much for the kind words! I’m so happy you enjoyed the post and yes, skinnies are definitely NOT dead for most people in my social circle. Well-made handbags are such a great gift! They almost always fit (ha) and can be carried so regularly that the recipient gets to enjoy them a lot. Have a great weekend! Betsy
