OMG people…seriously, what is it with super high waist mom jeans? I went shopping yesterday with my bestie, Sarah. It was the first time we’d managed to get together in a while so we had a fabulous day. My mission for the day was to buy myself a couple of pairs of jeans. Do you think I could find what I was looking for??
After a few of hours, I was so freaking frustrated. This is what I wanted: mid-rise, loose fitting straight leg, wide leg or bootcut jeans. It’s not too much to ask for, is it? Every single shop I went into either had skinny jeans or these super high waist mom jeans which looked bloody ridiculous on me! I mean, we’re not all super slim sixteen-year-olds, are we?
Sarah was chuckling at me from outside the changing rooms because she could hear me, huffing and puffing and throwing each pair of jeans on the floor when I realised how awful they looked! I don’t think I’ve said so many swear words in a while lol. Mind you, I am quite hormonal at the moment!
In the end, I managed to find a pair in C&A. They’re not exactly what I wanted because, although they’re a lovely pair of jeans with a bootcut fit, they are tight around the thighs and bum. So, I’m still on a mission to find a looser fitting pair that sit nicely on the hips and not so high that they’re almost reaching my bust! If anyone knows where I might find such a pair, please let me know!
I do own quite a few pairs of jeans already, but the majority are skinny jeans (which I still love) and I’d really like to add a few more pairs of looser fitting styles to my collection (I’ve got a nice pair of loose-fit baggy jeans, a pair of wide-legged ones, a pair of white mid rise mom jeans and a slimmer pair in black). Plus, looser fit jeans are so much more comfortable at this age, right? Especially when you’re going into peri-menopause, with hot flushes, bloating and just general malaise (is that the right word?). What do you think? What style of jeans are you into at the moment?
Now let’s get on with the Neverending Style link-up! What have you been up to this week? Please add your posts so we can all have a good nosey! By the way, can you believe it’s October already??!!! Where has this year gone?!!
There were so many wonderful posts last week, that it was hard to choose a favourite (you’re ALL my favourites!) but I’m sharing Darlene’s post about her new cropped Argyle sweater, because she demonstrates how we can wear cropped sweaters and look fabulous at any age! Check out her post here. I love this outfit and I just might have to go out and buy the entire look!
