Judy Blue Jeans: Find the Denim of Your Dreams

Have you ever struggled with finding the best jeans for your body? Look no further: I’ve found the perfect brand of jeans: Judy Blue.

Judy Blue has quickly become a favorite denim brand among indie boutiques, with owners selling out almost as quickly as they can get the jeans in stock.

What makes this denim so magical? Let me break down how awesome Judy Blue denim is, and why you need to get a pair.

Judy Blue Denim is Made to Fit Your Body

Ill-fitting jeans are a thing of the past. These body hugging jeans were made with women’s bodies in mind.

Have you ever subscribed to the idea that your jeans have to be unflattering? I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to have to wear unflattering jeans. In fact, your jeans can be the perfect foundation for a super flattering wardrobe. Since they’re such a staple piece, it’s best to start out with a well-fitting, flattering pair of jeans!

Judy Blue is here to make your dreams of finding the perfect pair of jeans come true.

Don’t forget: Judy Blue jeans are the perfect part of your year-round wardrobe, and can be an excellent neutral piece for a capsule wardrobe.

Judy Blue is Size-Inclusive

Do you struggle with finding denim that fits? Are you a little bit scared of buying denim online? Fear not. 

As a boutique owner, I know the struggle of finding size-inclusive fashion. There’s nothing more disheartening than purchasing clothing online and finding that it’s not going to fit.

In the Just Gorgeous Darling community, you can post pictures and ask for help choosing the best size and fit. With so many ladies who have fallen in love with Judy Blue, you’ll be able to get input on the size and look that will be right for you.

You can find the size chart on any of my listings for Judy Blue items, but just in case, here’s a link to the official size chart.

For most of the Judy Blue styles, simply size up to the next size: for example, if you normally wear size 10 jeans, then you’ll want to buy Judy Blue size 11.

If you’re feeling uncertain about your size, just ask! I’m here to help you find the perfect fit. My returns policy is so good that you can order with confidence.

Bring the Fashion Runway to Your Closet: Making Fashion Trends Practical

Have you ever looked at pictures from fashion shows, and thought NO WAY.

I mean, some of those looks are so impractical, right? And it’s ok: we can admit that some of them are unappealing and unwearable. I mean, can you imagine wearing some of these runway looks in your house while taking care of kids, or running to the grocery store, or even when you’re having some “me time”?

It’s almost funny to think about.

But here’s the thing: those fashion shows and runway looks do help show general trends in the fashion industry. We can take some inspiration from the runway, and find ways to incorporate high-fashion trends into our everyday wardrobe.

Look for Fashion Trends in Patterns and Colors

Are you seeing a trend of particular patterns or colors? Fall 2019 fashion trends are showing that neon is in. Harper’s Bazaar says that this trend is “not for the faint of heart” – and then shows photos of models wearing neon from head to toe!

Not everyone is comfortable wearing a neon trench coat, or a neon jumpsuit.

But how do you feel about neon earrings, or a neon belt with your comfy little black dress?

If you’re seeing patterns or colors that make you hesitate, because they aren’t quite like anything else you’ve ever worn, then slowly sneak them into your wardrobe by using them as accessories.

Many of my customers were reluctant to wear leopard print in the beginning – now, I quickly sell out of anything leopard print!

Fashion, and your self-expression through fashion, can be a journey. It doesn’t mean that you will immediately go for bright and bold: sometimes you have to work up to it. You’ll be amazed when you look back at pictures of yourself and see how far you’ve come. 

You never know when you will discover your new favorite color or pattern until you’ve had the courage to try it.

Add Textures and Inspired Styles

Sometimes, the styles that grace the runways feel impractical. 

In Fall 2019, metallics are listed as IN! Does that mean you’re going to get a metallic lamé skirt? Probably not! Well … unless you really love it! 

But can you try multi-layered metallic jewelry that shows off that trend? 


Runway trends are great because you can take a look at what is popular and find a way to integrate your version of the look into your wardrobe. 

Here are some trends details that you can look at for inspiration:

  • Fabrics used
  • Jewelry colors worn by the models
  • Nail polish
  • Hair styles

Using these textures and colors allows you to mimic some of the trends. Perhaps you may not want a tweed coat, but a tweed pair of dress pants would suit you nicely. You can incorporate the style without going all-in.

Incorporate Fashion Trends in Accent Pieces

Instead of being “head to toe” with a fashion trend, why not pick an item that fits current fashion trends, and use it as a focal point of a capsule wardrobe? You can use neutrals to make that one item POP in your wardrobe.

Imagine starting with a piece that fits the style that Harper’s Bazaar calls “Dark Romance.” (Hint: it’s floral patterns on a darker background – easy enough to find!). 

Find a shirt that fits “Dark Romance” and then create a wardrobe around it.

Get some Judy Blue jeans, a comfortable sweater, a pair of comfortable khakis, and you’re set!

High-fashion inspired looks don’t have to be uncomfortable and worn by models on a runway. You can rock these inspired looks in your own home, on a hot date, or at your office.

These looks don’t have to cost you a lot either: you don’t have to spend $600 for a fancy brand name dress. 

You can shop from boutiques like mine (shameless plug!) and create practical looks that incorporate your favorite fashion trends.

Make a Statement with Essential Oil Lava Stone Jewelry

It’s the change of seasons, and with that, many moms are pulling out the trusty essential oils. Whether you use oils to ward off the transitional season sickness, or you just love using essential oils as a perfume alternative, essential oil lava stone jewelry just might be the thing for you. 

You probably have seen it: simple chains with a black bead, or a series of black beads. Black bracelets, or even earrings. These lava stone pieces are a statement all on their own and are leading trends: but best of all, not only are they beautiful and trendy, they are useful! Read on to learn more about essential oil lava stone jewelry.

How Does Essential Oil Jewelry Work?

Essential oil diffusing jewelry is commonly made from lava rock beads. These beads are made from cooled lava rock. As the rock cools, it becomes porous.

Lava rocks are porous, which means that they are able to “soak up” the oils that you drop onto it. Normally, when you drop essential oils onto a hard surface, it doesn’t soak in: it just spreads out. The unique pitted surface of the lava beads makes them the perfect carrier for essential oils. 

But the lava rocks soak up the essential oils, and you’re able to keep those scents close.

Why Use Essential Oil Jewelry?

Perhaps you are at work, and aren’t able to run a diffuser without bothering your coworkers. Or, maybe you’re out running errands, but feeling a bit of a stuffy nose, and you want to keep your essential oil close. Maybe you want to use an oil that you’re not comfortable diffusing around your pets.

There’s a million reasons why you’d want to keep your essential oils close, and regardless of your reason, there’s one easy solution for everyone: essential oil jewelry!

Jewelry lets you express your style, but it doesn’t always have to be decorative. You can find jewelry that does everything from hide bobby pins, disguise a phone charger or a pen, or even a bracelet that holds all of your keys and keep them handy in a stylish manner. 

If you’re a busy mom, items that serve more than one function are priceless (can I get an A-MEN?)!

How to Use Lava Stone Jewelry

Using your lava stone jewelry is easy – I’m all about keeping that mom life as easy as possible.

Choose your favorite essential oil or blend. You can find tons of blends on Pinterest

To help spread the oil evenly, put a drop of essential oil on your finger, and then rub onto the bead, being careful not to get the oil on any other parts of the jewelry, like tassels, wooden beads, or any other parts.

Just put on the jewelry, and enjoy having your oils close! 

Where to Buy Essential Oil Jewelry

I carry a few pieces of essential oil jewelry in my boutique! I switch them out from season to season, but you can typically find some piece of lava rock jewelry just to meet your needs.

This fall, I am featuring two special pieces in the boutique.

First, is a pair of earrings that has a few lava stones, and a mauve tassel underneath. It combines practicality and trendy, making it the perfect piece to add to your fall wardrobe!

You can get the earrings HERE.

Next, we have a coordinating bracelet that combines wooden beads with lava stones, and has a coordinating tassel. You’ll feel put together when you wear the pair. Wearing matching jewelry is magical: it’s like when your bra and underwear match. 

There’s just something that makes you feel so put together when that happens, right? You know what I’m talking about!

You can purchase the bracelet HERE.
