Well everyone, this is my 300th post! Imagine that…
Today is the debut of my new mint blazer that I picked up at Zara in New York City last month. I mean please, you had me at “knit blazer”. Throw in the fact that I am loving all the mint everywhere this season and I couldn’t resist. It was the only thing I bought too, I was very proud of myself. My husband told me not to buy anything, so he wasn’t as proud, but I gave myself a nice little pat on the back for my self control.
I also don’t think these jeans have made an appearance yet although I’ve been wearing them like crazy. They are my new JBrand “jeggings”. I used to be one of those people who would never spend more than $50 on jeans, and I probably would have balked if you told me people actually spent $180 on denim, but I’ve changed my tune a bit given how I practically live in jeans. My sister in law told me I had to have these, and since I had a gift card from Christmas thanks to the in-laws, I decided to give them a shot. (so maybe I’m still not someone who will spend $180 of their own money on denim?). Anyway, these are 100% worth the money, gift card or not. They are so comfortable, the waist isn’t too low, they don’t stretch out, and I could basically wear them to bed. Call me crazy if you want, but the cost per wear on these is going to be about zero once I’m done with them. I do suggest sizing up unless you have skinny legs for your size. I’m normally a 27 but went with a 28 in these, the 27’s were a little too snug in the thigh area.
Today I’m headed out to run some errands and then going to grill and sit around the fire with my 3 cousins that live here tonight. Probably won’t be wearing this there though, I think a sweater and boots are going to be in order instead.
Have a great Wednesday!
