Remember when we thought that January was a long month? Dang, I don’t believe that March is ever going to end. Yesterday, here in Virginia, the Governor announced that schools are closed for the rest of the year, and all non-essential businesses would close for 30 days. I also saw that many other states also did similar shutdowns. I am sure that this will help to slow the virus, and it is for the good of the country. Hopefully, those whose jobs are impacted will be able to get relief from the government soon. There is no great solution to this problem, and I know I am BOLDLY praying for relief sooner rather than later. A lot of moms have been struggling with having the kids home a lot earlier than expected. I’ve seen lots of posts about ways to keep them entertained, and I know that many moms are grateful for all of the ideas. For us older women, we are dealing with a similar issue…our husbands are now home ALL THE TIME! I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter over 30 years ago, talking to my neighbor, who said her husband had recently retired. I smiled and said, “that’s great!” She looked me straight in the eye and said, “you think so? He is driving me crazy! He is under my feet all of the time.” Lol!
I’ve thought about that lady a lot over the years. At first, I was confused, after all, I was still a newlywed, and I wondered why on earth would this woman not want her husband home all the time. I understand her mindset a little more now. Lol! Joe likes to be busy, and he can’t stand sitting still. Those are not good traits during this time; however, I have found a solution. The solution is simple; it is called a “Honey, DO List!” I’ve been adding to my list daily, especially since my new office is nearing an end. Husbands are like children; we have to give them activities to keep them busy. Lol!
Ladies, we have a lot of jeans to look at today! The first pair that I am bringing you today is from Old Navy. I love the dark wash of these bootcut jeans! These fit very nice and snug, and the material is relatively lightweight. I am looking for jeans for the summer, so I don’t want jeans that are heavy or stiff.
This pair has a small amount of flare, just perfect for going over boots later this fall. They have 2% spandex, so there is some stretch, but not like leggings. These feel a tiny bit short on me, and I would prefer them to be about an inch longer in case I want to wear shoes with a small heel. The inseam is 32″, so I might order the long which is 34″.
These fit great! I am wearing a size 10, my usual size, and they hit right below my belly button. For more details on any of the jeans, you can check out the video below. These are called a Kicker Boot-cut jeans, and since they are on sale at 50% off, they are under 20.00 right now. Here is the link.
You might have seen a glimpse of these jeans the other day when I did my Spring & Summer shoes try-on session. (here) Several of you started asking about the jeans, so today, I am telling where they were purchased. I love distressed jeans, but I know that a lot of you are going to keep scrolling. Lol! These jeans have huge rips at the knees, which is a big trend this summer.
The length is perfect for rolling up for a cuffed look. These jeans are a straight cut, so they are slim through the hips and thighs, but straight at the leg and ankle. I loved how soft these jeans were and how they already had a broken-in look.
I am pointing at my belly-button, so these are a high waist jean. These jeans fit me great, and they are one of my favorites from the entire bunch. (more to follow on Thursday) They don’t show a muffin top, which is a big plus, and in the videos, I show how each pair of jeans fits at the waist. Warning, you will see my rolls, so be prepared. These are a size 10, and they are a little loose, but I love that because it adds to the style. Here is the link to the distressed jeans.
When the website said that these jeans run small, they weren’t kidding. Lol! You can probably count all of my dimples by looking at these jeans. There are some things that I really like about these jeans, and if they were the correct size, they would be awesome.
First off, I love the creamy color of the jeans. They are not a true white, but a light cream instead. Also, I love the contrasting stitching in dark gold color. I also like the ankle-length of these jeans. I ordered a 32W, which was supposed to fit like a 30-31W, which is what I usually wear. But, I guess that I should have sized up!
These jeans strike me at my belly-button. Usually, I will order a slightly larger size in white jeans because I don’t want them so tight that you can see through them. I forgot to do that with these, but they are thick enough that you can’t see through them. If you look hard, you can barely see the outline of the pockets, and these are tight at a banjo string. Lol! Here is the link, and did I mention that you need to size up? Lol!
Black jeans and a white t-shirt is one of my all-time favorite looks in the summer. I had a hard time finding black jeans to bring to you for this try-on session because everyone that I found was sold out of sizes. I hope that these still have plentiful stock, but I wouldn’t count on it. These are from Old Navy, and they are the Pop Icon Skinny jean.
I love the deep black color of these jeans. Make sure you wash these in cold water and separately the first time. I have no idea how they will wash up, but just in case they bleed the first washing, you don’t want to ruin any clothing. These fit me great, and they seem to hold you and shape you in all of the right places.
These jeans hit me right below my belly-button, and they weren’t bad to create a muffin top. I love the length of these jeans because they will be great with any type of shoe. But, I love this look, especially for wearing heels or pumps. Here is the link to the black jeans, and since they are 50% off, they will only be 20.00! Gurl’s, these are a pair of jeans that you need to consider seriously. I am declaring these my favorite, which ticks me off since I think that they are also the most expensive. But, I love everything about this pair of jeans, and I can’t find a single con about them. If anything, they are a tad loose, so I am going to order the next size down to see which pair I end up keeping. But I will be keeping one of them!
These are called vintage jeans, so maybe that is why I like them so much. I love the material, the stitching, the softness of the material, and the length of the jeans They are longer (33″) than most of the other jeans, but I like that so that I can wear them with heels.
These jeans also have the booty-lifting power, and the waistband had elastic for a nice fit that isn’t too tight. They hit at the belly-button, but there isn’t a muffin-top with these jeans. I think that you will love these jeans and here is the link.
I have only recently discovered Wit & Wisdom jeans, but I am already hooked. These jeans are like wearing leggings. They are soft, stretchy, and they have a fantastic waistband that contains a wide elastic band. I wore a bootcut pair in yesterday’s post, and today I am bringing you this cute ankle-length pair.
These are the perfect length for adding a small cuff for that summer-time look. I love wearing my jeans in the summer with this type of cuff with sandals, flats, flip-flops, etc. These are the lowest rise of any of the jeans that I am showing you today. They are a mid-rise, so they are still higher than the low rise jeans of the past. These are a fantastic pair of jeans for the summer, and you will love how they hold up in and lift you up. Here is the link to these jeans.
I am not sure if these jeans are dark gray or faded black. Either way, they are a super nice pair of jeans, and you can’t go wrong with this pair. I like the ankle-length, which is perfect for rolling up or for wearing as is.
These are skinny jeans, and they fit me great. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they are snug, but not overly tight. They are super soft and made of stretchy denim, so they are comfortable to wear.
This is the best photo of the real color of the jeans. They sit right under the belly- button, and this is the most affordable pair of jeans that I have shown you today. They are 16.00, but they are already running out of some sizes. If these jeans are a color and style that you have been looking for, then hurry before all of the sizes are gone. Here is the link.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s session. I have several more to show you on Thursday, so be sure to tune back in.
