Okay. So I might have finally got the hang of ankle boots. First, they finally feel all stretched out and soft, so they’re very comfortable to wear. Second, I have accepted that I will NEVER look like a Shopbop model wearing ankle boots, so there’s that. And that’s okay. 😉
On to the jeans. Unfortunately the style I’m wearing is sold out at Nordstrom, but this other pair is nearly identical, just without the distressing. !iT collective was kind enough to send me a pair to try out, and I’ve definitely been trying them out!! I’ve worn them countless times since I received them a few weeks ago and am always impressed at how great they feel and hold me in. They are more of a legging jean on me, so I always make sure my ass is covered with a long tank or cardigan. I’m wearing a size 29, and I could have sized down if I wanted them to be even more snug around my waist/hips, but then they’d be WAAY too tight on my legs. They’re not exactly ankle-length on me; they’re full-length, but I haven’t washed them yet (I wash my jeans about every 5-6 wears…), so they may shrink up a bit in the length. Although the washing instructions recommend dry cleaning. These could stand to shrink just a teeny bit though, so I’ll probably wash them and hang to dry.
Overall, I’m pleased with the jeans (they’re made in the US) and will definitely try a different style next time I’m at Nordstrom. The price point is PERFECT at just under $100 also, so I highly recommend them.
Oh, and check out this picture from just about a year ago when I proclaimed I “can’t do ankle boots” – how long I’ve come 😉 sort-of…
