Wax Coated

Umm... is it me or is Christmas pretty much here? Yikes, I'm not ready! Sunday I spent the day doing a little Christmas shopping and wore wax coated J. Brands that I scooped up from Macy's. I actually have them in nude (remember this post?) and knew I needed a black pair for winter. Shh... I'm kind of obsessed with them. Wax coated denim keeps things interesting without being as showy as colored or patterned styles. 

Of course it wouldn't be a Holiday look without a little bit of sparkle. Talk about a comfy, chic AND festive shopping outfit:

For big shopping trip it's all about easy flats and layering pieces + denim that allows you to move. I always wear slip-on flats when I'm planning to be within 10 ft of a mall. Let's be honest, you've got to have easy access to trying on all the shoes in the shoe departments (wink wink).

For me, wax coated denim sits right between basic blue jeans and leather pants. They're uber stylish and versatile and not as much of a commitment as leather pants.  The J. Brand Skinnies can easily be transformed into a night out look with a pair of fierce heels. Have you jumped on the wax coated train? Do tell!

From exciting events to the latest trends, amazing contests to everyday values, Macy’s has been making magic for over 150 years!

  1. I love my wax coated pants! I have 2 pairs, well 3, one from H&M ($20), one from Zara ($60), and another pair I just picked up by Lauren Conrad ($60, on sale for $20). So far my pair from Zara are my favorite, but I really like the one's by LC as well. They are a bit thicker, but really comfortable. So easy to dress up and down!

  2. Love love loooove this look. You look great, and yes, stylish, festive and chic!!!

    I'm drooling over those JS flats, soo nice.

    And of course, you look gorgeous, as per the uge. Have a great weekend, Ash!!

  3. Love this whole look! The waxed jeans are definitely worth checking out.

  4. Waxed coated jeans are awesome...I'm definitely on the bandwagon! Definitely a cute outfit for holiday shopping and I love the bit of shine you added to it. Now it's truth time - I'm not a flats girls, but, these you have on here are soooo cute! :)

    xo, Stephanie :)
