Anyways, here’s a Flower Box Top. I bought from them when everything on sale was 50% off (after Christmas) so it was $15. I love it – I think it’s a little out of my comfort zone with the embellishment, but not too crazy. (And I might venture to say it does the impossible task of making me look a bit voluptuous – humor me people…)
I wore it for dinner out with Trevor – dressed up, but not all out – perfect.
I wore those garage-sale trouser jeans and look what I found in my closet – fashionable (right!?) flats – I had bought them a few years ago for a Christmas party (sale, $5, JC Penney?) and hardly ever wear them because I never thought they were daily-wear-with-jeans type of shoes – but I’m embracing it. And no socks – you should be proud.
And here we are back home, ready to watch never-ending past episodes of The Office – we’re party animals. Love when the kids invite themselves to spend the night with their Grandparents! (And no, my head isn’t double the size of his – I’m holding the camera and hence my head is closer to it – oh, and he’s always making weird faces in pictures I insist on taking - )
And so I learned – jeans are supposed to fit snug. Did you know that?? I didn’t. So here’s both pair (bigger pair on the left, smaller on the right) – in the end, I was worried about the waist fitting too tight on the smaller pair – but it didn’t. What did happen was with the smaller pair, the legs/thighs fit a lot better. (Ignore the length on the big pair – I was going to hem them.)
After being washed and dried (yes, I dry everything, jeans included) – picture from one of my kids – I didn’t really notice a size difference after washing:
Now, I need to discuss jean length – any opinions?? The pair I have is a little long, but I don’t want to hem them, because what if I wear shoes with a heel/wedge – then they need to be long. But when I wear flats, they’re a tad too long – what do you do? Do you have a long pair and a short pair of the same jeans??
