I know we’re firmly planted in the age of the skinny jean, but ever since Kristine illustrated this Lovely Girl for us I’ve been dying to find a perfect pair of high waisted flares! She just looks too cool, right? I used to be a flares girl all the way, but never this flare-y — these babies are not messing around. And I kind of love the 70’s vibe that they’ve injected into my wardrobe! Perfect for fall, paired with some awesome clogs for running around crunching leaves.
My hunt for these led me to Zappos (of course), and I can’t tell you what a thing of beauty it is to not have to go shopping for jeans in real life. For some reason denim shopping is almost worse than bathing suit shopping in my mind — it’s endlessly frustrating, and almost impossible when you have a baby along for the ride. But you should know by now my love for Zappos and shopping from my computer (or, in this case, on my phone from the couch). A couple of clicks and this gorgeous pair of Hudson jeans arrived on my doorstep a few days later, with free shipping no less.
The next terror of trying on jeans? Actually getting them on. Jeans and I have such a dicey history that sometimes it feels impossible to find a pair that fits well. Like they come along once in a blue moon and only if you use your lucky dressing room and it’s a Tuesday and you did a rain dance before you tried them on. But I have to tell you, this pair from Hudson slid on like buttah, and buttoned and zipped and they’re stretchy and comfy and just. perfect. Every detail is gorgeous, and I hate to say it, but they almost feel like yoga pants. Except they’re jeans. I kind of feel like I’m cheating.
Long story short, I’ll be bringing the 70’s flare vibe this fall big time. What about you? Are you skinny jeans all the way, or would you ever get your flare on? xoxo
