I hope everyone is having an awesome Memorial Day Weekend! We've had amazing weather her in Virginia. I was feeling a little left out and sad about canceling our plans to leave town after seeing everyone's fun beach and river pictures. But you know what? We made the right call to stay home and we've had a great time anyway. Sometimes you don't need a change of scenery just a change of attitude. So I took it upon myself to look cute and drink wine on our back deck with my husband as much as possible. It was awesome. It's so easy to forget that it's who you're with and not where you are that really matters.
White jeans are my new staple. I can't believe I went through all of last spring and summer without finding a good fitting pair. The ones I bought the summer after Tagg was born are just a bit too big after an hour of wear. I hate when that happens. If you follow my instagram then you'll notice I've been wearing them constantly. Comfortable and casual and chic. Pretty much my favorite. I'm not embarrassed to wear something constantly if I feel good in it. Cost per wear. It works. I'm pretty sure by July these pants will be paying me.
I wanted so badly to love the cheap big box store white jeans that everyone else raves about but I just couldn't make them work. I tried three different styles. The rockstar that every body else seems to love showed my loose skin. I'm not kidding. They were super thin and didn't have that thick stretch I need to smooth everything out. And the fit was off. Another style I tried was the Diva. I had much better luck with the fit but the pants were distressed. No thanks.
