My Perfect Jeans

First let me apologize for the late post this week…blame it on the s s s s s sinus infection! It’s been a pretty rough week, but I am always glad to be back.

Everyone needs the PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS. And I am no exception. My journey to finding my personal style has led me to craft what I refer to as my “style philosophy.” Here it goes!

Style Philosophy

This has helped me identify specific closet items as well as saved me some money. Now, I know the difference between “appreciating” a particular style/trend and “loving” it. To love it is for it to fit my style philosophy. I no longer spend money on items I do not love.

Remember my jean shopping experience last October? In case you are wondering how that turned out, the store asked me to keep the additional funds whoop whoop! (Catch up on the interesting story here).

Back to my story! I went out looking for the perfect jeans, one that would elongate and slim my silhouette, and balance the width of my hips with the rest of my body (remember, I am a type B kinda of gal). Ultimately, I was drawn to a flared hem in dark wash. A flared hem usually balances the hips with the rest of the body. The dark wash also creates a slimming effect. Jeans with tapered or straight legs would only exaggerate my hips and make me bottom-heavy. The pair I selected also had a slight stretch to it, which made it more comfortable.

Here is the final product:

Caveat: People change, I will change. I know my style philosophy will not always be the same. At some point in the future, I may choose something completely opposite. But at this point, this works for me!
