10th Commandment: February 22

Feb 22, 2013

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, where are you headed to in Florida

  2. Margaret says:

    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!

    • CynthiaW says:

      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.

    • Jenna says:

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

      • Cynthia W says:

        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.

  3. Terri says:

    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.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
