morning jeanscapade

my straight legged jeans are mourning in my closet right now.

i can’t remember the last time i wore denim that had a little flare. and these jeans, my friends. these jeans are the ones that you pull out of the closet when you feel as though maybe you are having a “skinny” moment…hoping that just maybe you can tug them up over your legs and bum. {i know you know what i’m talking about} so in the past two years, i have tried that little morning ritual a few too many times. and i have to say, it never ended well. every single time, i silently folded them back up in defeat. placed them back in the farthest corner of the closet. and vowed never to try that again.

but alas. this morning, i slipped these babies on in confidence.
over the thighs? check.
over the bum? check.
buttoned? check.
zipped? check

{sigh of relief. a punch of the air in excitement. maybe a little hoop n holler}

so today is the day i’m bringing my flare jeans out of the corner of the closet. i already had an outfit picked out for today, but i thought to myself…signe, you never know when these babies will button again. so a new outfit was created.

and that was the story of my morning jeanscapade. and i’m sure i went into too much detail and talked way too much about my bum. but you get the picture.
high fives all around for buttons buttoning and zippers zipping.

jeans: sevens {similar} & {similar}

top: target {something similar}

wedges: forever 21

bracelet: anthropologie

necklace: anthropologie

also, i tried my hand at the amazing joanna goddards {from a cup of jo} half-up braided crown tutorial. i let my hair dry naturally and just curled the front pieces, so mine could use some work. but what a lovely tutorial!

    Hello! Firstly, thrilled to have discovered your blog via Selective Potential – you are adorable!! And yes to wearing flared jeans – you’ve styled yours beautifully. I love my skinnies, but lately, I’ve been pulling out the dark flares as well + they’re so perfect with a gorgeous pair of heels! xo

    Aw, such a great feeling! A feeling that I’m hoping will happen to me this spring, haha, and not the other way around. I LOVE your sequin sleeves, they bring the perfect touch of glam to a casual outfit, and your hair looks so pretty here!

    Gotta love those moments when you fit into something that hasn’t fit for a while – it’s pretty wonderful.

    You look lovely in this ensemble but my favourite bit is the sequinned sleeves on that sweater!
