fresh fringe + high-waist heaven


high-waist jeans: nordstrom BP // sweater: target

look ma, fresh fringe! i can see things without rogue, stringy hairs falling into my face. hallelujah! 

also: though generally anti-pants, i decided recently to give jeans another go. i so desperately want to be one of those cool girls who just throws on a pair of jeans and a tee and has it goin' on. you know the type. so i spent some time thinking about what i'd want in a pair of jeans -- rather than looking at how other people wear them.

i found this pair of high-waisted jeans in the junior's section at nordstrom -- and i really lucked out, because they're at a great price point, too. especially compared to high-waist jeans elsewhere. i never thought i'd be so ecstatic over a pair of pants, but friends, i'm obsessed. i love how this cut emphasizes my waist instead of sitting on my hips, which is maybe my biggest complaint about jeans. and they're so, so comfy -- unbelievably so. i feel like adding this one thing to my wardrobe made it grow tenfold -- all my tees want to take a turn, and i still feel uber-fem -- what with that waist-defining magic. i'm absurdly thrilled, kids.

  1. Something must be at work today because I too (who never wears anything in pant form) decided to take the plunge and wear a pair of jeans today. I always struggle to find jeans that fit and don't make my short legs look stumpy and my hips huge but these babies ain't that bad.

    They look simply bangin on you though! Seems like you are in fact one of those women who have it 'goin on' ;)
