Raise your hand if you’re over skinny jeans right now…
Yea, that’s me. I mean, I still love them. They’ll always have special place in my heart. They tuck into my tall boots in the winter so nicely, and look so perfect cuffed with booties. But sometimes you just need a break.
So a few weeks ago I ordered a few pairs of non-skinny jeans, and most of them looked pretty bad. Except for this perfectly distressed slim straight pair. And even though I think they’re a little too cool for me, I still love them.
They’re a little mom jean, with the higher rise and no stretch, but aren’t they just so refreshing? When I polled everyone on Instagram they agreed that this pair was a keeper. For some reason I think that pairing them with a blazer and loafers is the best, but I recently bought some chunky leopard print heels that I think I’ll wear with them, too.
Speaking of loafers, the brown pair I’m wearing here is available in a few colors, and I just ordered this vegan black pair (under$25!) yesterday. I’m transitioning away from buying leather goods, so I’m hoping the quality and fit works out.
P.S. I’d love to hear what your favorite vegan leather items are!
If you’ve ever had to pose for photos before you know that figuring out what to do with your hands is a problem (Remember the scene from Talladega Nights?). So I grabbed my ‘Everyday I’m Hustlin’ mug to make it a bit easier. So technically, no, there is no coffee in the cup…but it made me feel better taking photos!
Later this week I’ll be posting a half-marathon training update so stay tuned 🙂
