So today when I was getting dressed I was searching through my closet, trying to decide what jeans to wear. Insead of choosing a freshly laundered on-a-hanger pair, I instead went digging through my dirty clothes hamper to get out the ones I have already worn EVERY DAY THIS WEEK. I got them at Old Navy about a month ago and then had to have 4 inches hemmed off of them, and welp, they are AWESOME.
Here is a variant of the outfit I have worn almost every day this week, including my favorite red flats which were a serious score(!!!) from T.J. Maxx:
I love these jeans for many reasons, some of which I will now list:
1. They are almost a perfect replica of the Navy-issue jeans (the brand is Seafarer) my sister and I found ONE pair of at Goodwill about 4 years ago. Back then, they fit me perfectly and were a tad too small for her. Since she’s gone on the South Beach Diet and I have been on the Everything BUT South Beach Diet, those precious jeans are now a perfect fit for my sister and a tad too tight on me. So for now, the Seafarers reside in Denver. I miss them, but I can cope better with my Old Navy stand-ins.
2. These jeans contain the oh-so-critical 2% spandex.
3. Since I bought them a size too big they are loose enough to EAT FOOD, sit down in, and even sit down on the floor cross-legged right out of the dryer. Man, I love that.
4. My husband loves them. He loves them so much that I practically get a "Yee haw!!" and a silly dance whenever I wear them. SO CUTE!
Sadly, these jeans (they say "High Rise" on the tag) are nowhere to be found on the Old Navy website. Which probably means I need to get over there RIGHT NOW and scour the sale racks for as many more pairs as I can find!! AHH!
Here’s a closer look at my beloved red flats to make you feel better:
Yes, that is paint on the wood floor. Don’t ask.
And in case you’re wondering how my thumbnail is doing, here it is in all it’s bedraggled glory:
I know. HOT.
And life is SO interesting around here.
