Summer Sponsors

Instead of an outfit post this Friday I'd like to introduce some of the amazing shops that have sponsored Jeans and a Teacup this past month. I think you'll love the jewelry, handmade items and boho chic fashion that this month's sponsors have to offer! 

InfinEight is an Etsy shop based in Ontario, Canada. Mima has been making and selling jewelry for several years now. A lot of her jewelry focuses on geometric forms, using brass, wood, and silver elements. She also enjoys working with color and texture and creating new forms.  I'm also loving her cute, whimsical sterling silver pieces!

Christine Elizabeth Jewelry is the work of jewelry designer and Glamour and Glow owner, Christine Spreng. Her jewelry features tiny, minimalistic designs perfect for everyday! Each style comes in two adjustable size options which make them perfect for layering. The Christine Elizabeth jewelry line is also very affordable which means you can create the perfect "neck palette" without breaking the bank! They also make great gifts. You can find the handmade Christine Elizabeth pieces under the necklace section on Glamour and Glow along with other great statement necklaces.

Fall is fast approaching which means it's time to start thinking about scarves, hats and gloves! And you're in luck because Mercifully Made has the cutest handmade crochet items! The fingerless gloves are perfect for a little extra warmth while still being able to use your fingers on those smartphones! And this delicate lace cowl is the perfect accent to a fall outfit. 

If boho chic is your style then you need to check out Noa Elle from the 2Tee Couture line. Both of these lines are based in Los Angeles and made in the USA! You'll find feminine, flowy tops, dresses and bottoms in the Noa Elle collection. Check out the Store Locator to find a boutique selling Noa Elle pieces near you!

Floral Scallops

I'm a little late to the scallop hem train. It wasn't until late this summer that I finally picked up some scalloped shorts and this floral scallop tank. Without the blazer, this outfit is perfect for HOT summer days. I added the blazer and wedge heeled sandals to dress it up a little. I pretty much carry a blazer or denim jacket with me in the summer just in case the air conditioning is turned up too high. I hate being cold!

I was on the hunt for joggers all summer and having no luck until I went into Anthropologie a couple weeks ago and found two pairs on sale! I originally thought I was only going to get one pair but they were both different style and I loved both prints I couldn't choose just one. So now I have two great pairs of "nap" pants. I could literally go to bed with these on! 

I love to pair these pants with linen tees because it's just so darn comfy! But I think these could be dressed up with a nice silk blouse and heels or booties. You could also trade out the denim jacket for a leather one. I'm excited to try more possibilities as the weather gets cooler!

I've always loved the look of scallop-edged piece but haven't added any to my closet until now! I don't know what took me so long but when I saw these shorts at Gap I had to go out and buy them (during a sale, of course).

I also fell in love with the J.Crew version of this sweater awhile back.  So when I saw it at J.Crew Factory I new I needed to get it. I love the pom-pom detail on the front and I thought it would be fun to pair it with the scalloped shorts. It's also really light weight so it's ok to wear even in the summer. 

Anyway, Happy Friday! I hope you all have a great weekend!

A Pair of Printed Pants

I was reaalllyy planning on posting on Friday and Monday...but didn't. Sorry about that! I took a mini vacation to visit family in Colorado and I just couldn't get myself to the computer.  But I did take outfit photos! 

I mentioned in an earlier post that I don't often find things at Anthropologie in my price range.  I go there ALL THE TIME just hoping to find sale items that I like and can also afford.  And about two weeks ago I scored the jackpot! I found these fun lounge pants, another pair of printed joggers and a floral, scalloped tank, all for a reasonable price! I've been on the hunt for a pair of joggers all summer but they all didn't fit right or were too short. These are short too but I think they are supposed to be cropped and for some reason I think it works on me.  I also love the split hem, fun print and the tie waist. 

I also mentioned my love for clothing that can double as sleepwear and these fit the bill. They are going under the "nap" pants category. They are so comfortable!
