Dreamin' of Denim

12:11 PM

I am not someone who enjoys shopping for denim…being small, shopping for jeans is always a pain. Plus, it’s not part of the accepted wardrobe of work; so I can get by with only having a couple pairs and I pretty much always wear those out before shopping for new ones. Now maybe it was the fashion blog talking, or maybe it was the move back to Chicago, but before Joe and I packed up in Cleveland, I decided to go on a denim splurge and I bought 4 new pairs of jeans. 

I had heard a lot of good things about J Brand jeans, but I never really gave them a try because that required me to head to a dressing room to try things on - and if you know me at all, then you know that is something I will avoid at all cost. That said, I finally decided to stop being lazy, and boy am I glad! These jeans are so comfortable and very flattering - hence the need for 4 pairs. With this look, I dressed up the denim by adding a pair of heels, and this fun mint green blazer. 

I should be all set on denim for a while…or at least that’s the hope. Now that I know my size in J Brand, I might now be able to resist when I see them in stores. What’s your favorite brand of jeans? And please tell me I not the only one who strongly dislikes the denim disaster that is jean shopping?
