What a difference a week makes. These outfit photos were taken last Friday, and this week I’m pretty sure I would have been risking frost bite had I attempted any outdoor pics! I heard on the radio on my way home from work yesterday that in Homer, Alaska it was 48 degrees. I can honestly say it was the first time I ever wished I was in Alaska!
Anyway, some details on today’s look. A couple of months ago I went on the hunt for the perfect pair of dark wash skinny jeans. I hadn’t bought a new pair for a couple years, and the ones I was wearing weren’t really the greatest quality. I lucked into these from American Eagle and could not be more pleased. I’m pretty sure I hadn’t tried on their jeans since I was in high school because the fit never felt quite right for my body style, so I gave up on the brand. I’m really glad I finally gave them another chance! (and that my body seems to be more proportionate??)
What I especially like about these is the length. They hit right at my ankle, which means they’re perfect for flats, heels, or sandals, a no-fuss cuff a la today’s style, or with knee-high boots where no one would know they’re a little on the short side;)
What is your favorite denim brand and style? Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by new duds from a long-forgotten brand?
