+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: February 22

I’m off to sunny Florida for my first ever beach trip.  And before departing, I tried on last year’s white jeans.  Talk about a demoralizing experience.  I had fewer body image issues when I was 14-years-old than I did in that moment.  Time for a new pair.

    Belle, thanks for posting universally flattering flared jeans. I’m anxiously waiting for the skinny jean trend to go away. Have a wonderful beach trip!

      I’m just pretending that skinny jeans have already gone away. I’ve been quite successful at ignoring them thus far and see no reason to stop now.

      We’ve all invested too much in boots for skinny jeans to go away anytime soon.

        Ha – if I want to shoe off the shaft of my boots, I can wear them with dresses and skirts.

        But, I was thinking about getting a pair of slim cut jeans, just for my cowboy boots. Sigh.

    Skinny jeans!!!!! The mainstain of europe for both guys and gals…YUCK! Only ten percent of the population over the age of 14 looks good in them. Yet we all own a pair and keep trying! Cannot wait for this trend to be put to bed.
