I’m not very trendy when it comes to basics like jeans. But the other day, J.Crew was having a big sale and I happened to walk by a store in person. #oldschool. On a whim, I tried on these high waisted jeans and fell in love immediately. They’re high waisted without being too high, and the button detail gives them a fresh edge without being edgy.
I paired them with a striped tee that almost looked like a bodysuit without actually having to snap the bottom. The beauty of a high waist on your jeans is that it’s more forgiving if you want to tuck in a tighter top. I topped off the look with a camel blazer and plan to wear this whole head to toe outfit again in the near future.
I recommend sizing down in these jeans. When I tried on my size, they were loose in the legs and droopy in the front. They’re super stretchy, so a size down works better in this case. With a higher waist, it usually looks better to go tighter in general. If you want to see the jeans styled another way, you can see how I wore them last week again with plaid.
In other news, it was sprinkling and super windy on the day we were taking these photos (as you can probably tell from the photo above!), and it really accentuated the wave on the front of my hair. The piece that gets wavy like that is all new baby hair and it’s like a completely different situation from the rest of my locks. Have any other moms had this happen? Unless I curl it, my hair has always been straight… but now I have this one wave.
Also, my feet grew half a size. The female body is amazing but post-baby it never ceases to surprise me with fun little tricks up it’s sleeve!
