It’s so funny how you get things in your head and then you see them everywhere! Remember when I mentioned last week that I was going to take some of my older, too-big jeans to the tailor? Well, one of them was this pair that I’m wearing, the Goldsign Leia jean. I really never wore these much because even when I got them, they didn’t fit (too small) and didn’t look great on me anyway (probably because they didn’t fit). Now that they’re three sizes too big, they fit 🙂 Although I’m not sure that they won’t be falling down around my knees by the end of the day…
Anyway, I was thinking about how much I really love these jeans, and how I should try and wear them as-is, even with the wide leg, and then today at the Dr’s office I saw a really cute girl wearing a pair of wide-leg jeans (probably Dojos) and converse and thought she looked great. And then while perusing blogs, also at the Dr’s office, I saw That’s Not My Age’s post on wide (white) jeans and knew I needed to try and wear my own wide leg jeans more. I’m not sure why I wouldn’t, because I love them, besides the fact that they do feel rather dated. Maybe I feel like I look “old” in them?
Also, the James Perse sample sale is ending this weekend – did you get everything you wanted? Although the top I’m wearing is a tunic top, I thought I’d show you that you don’t have to wear it long; it’s kind of nice pulled a little bit up on the side, or folded under a little bit sometimes – with these jeans, it’s too big and bulky to wear all the way down. Don’t let these prices pass you by…I know everything is final sale, but apparently James Perse does very well on eBay 😉
Have a great weekend!!! Please enter my Pure Barre giveaway if you have a studio nearby and are interested in trying it.
