I didn’t get up late. I didn’t even get started late. For some reason, though, everything went wrong this morning. I got my daughter to school a half an hour late. I was going to have breakfast when I got home, but realized the kids got the last of the milk.
I left the house in a tank top, ripped jeans – covered in paint, and a hoodie. I don’t even like hoodies. They are great from a practicality stand point, but they are not figure flattering. I am having an off day.
I’ve wanted to write an article about jeans for the longest time. However, I own two pairs of jeans: the ones I’m wearing today with a tear in the crotch and oil paint on the legs, and a pair of AE jeans that don’t actually flatter my pear shape AT ALL. I don’t want to be a hypocrite and tell you what types of jeans you should be wearing when those are the jeans that I own. However, when I do find some jeans – and I’m planning on looking this weekend – there will be a denim post later this fall. Probably the end of November.
The point is that everyone is allowed off days. You try, but sometimes you just can’t muster up the courage to put on a skirt when all you want to do is slip into an old, ragged, yet extremely comfortable pair of jeans. One accessory that will help pull off any outfit: confidence.
