the best jeans you've never heard of (& giveaway)

shirt: Viamor / Mainstream Boutique ($30)
jeans: Mac and Me / Mainstream Boutique ($68)
sandals: H&M ($25)

OK, we need to talk. About these jeans. I have not had a pair of blue jeans that I've LOVED in over three years. And it's not because I wasn't trying...I tried several brands and they kept coming up short (literally and figuratively). It was getting really frustrating. But then last month I found these dream jeans in the most unsuspecting place...a boutique just a few blocks from my house! I love the fit, the wash, the whiskers, the stretch. They are nearly perfect. And, they are much cheaper than the brands I had tried previously! The brand is Mac and Me and it is an exclusive label for Mainstream Boutique.

And I can't forget about my new favorite T-shirt. It's so soft and I love that I'm instantly pattern-mixing as soon as I throw it on (which is harder to do in the summer with less layers). I've gotten a ton of compliments on it. I wouldn't normally consider myself a boutique shopper, but I've been surprised to find several items at Mainstream.

I bought this outfit and then after wearing it three days straight (I'm serious, ask Eric) I emailed the boutique owner saying WE NEED TO TELL MORE PEOPLE ABOUT YOUR SHOP! So...we worked up a fun little giveaway! One of you will win a $50 gift card/store credit to Mainstream Boutique Waukee (they ship anywhere in the U.S., by the way)!

Here's how to enter:

  1. Click here to join the Mainstream Boutique VIP Facebook group. It's a really fun group because they post pictures of new arrival shipments, and you can comment on them and they will hold your size for you (If you're already a member, that works, too!)
  2. Leave a comment in the group mentioning Snappy Casual (e.g., "I found out about this group on Snappy Casual! Would love to win the giveaway!")

That's it! Super simple. Michelle (the store owner) will randomly choose a winner next week.

To purchase or inquire about any of the items in my post, feel free to call or message Michelle at Mainstream Boutique and she'll help ya out! I also have a couple "20% off two regularly priced items" coupons to share if you're interested :-)
