What I wore to a local church fair -
Always Skinny Jeans from The Gap – very out of character for me – please see below
Graphic Tee from Target
Scarf from H&M
Tie sweater from Athleta
(It was raining so pulled back hair and no make-up)
I don’t like jeans. Okay, I don’t like pants. Or slacks if you are over 63. This includes capris and shorts.
But I look at women who are gorgeous and confident in jeans. Who look comfortable yet fashionable and HOT and I swoon. And I want some of that. Jeans I mean – not the ladies.
So occasionally I try. I try on a casual day and I look okay but feel awful all day. All day. I cannot wait to get home and rip the jeans off and put on a swooshy skirt and breath.
Because of my jean aversion I’ve never tried designer jeans as I think how can I spend that amount of money on a piece of clothing I already despise. Would I truly love them more? So I buy a few pairs from The Gap when I have a coupon. And they are okay. Not love.
I have a weird body for jeans. Long legs, short torso but long waisted, a tiny waist but wide hips and a bubble of a butt with slim thighs. I have curves and I’ve had three kids and have that awful c-section fold on my tummy to shove in something.
I know I don’t have to like jeans but sometimes skirts are hard to wear. Hiking for example. If I do that again someday. Or on the monkey bars especially if I choose not to wear underwear that day.
So help – is it worth it to splurge for designer jeans? Will I fall in love? Is it possible to convert and love a pair of jeans? Is there hope? Share your favorites.
(I am also participating in What I wore Wednesday here wearing a dress, backwards. I know. Crazy.)
