I don’t usually wear pink but I do love pink and brown together, particularly this kin-of dusty rose. I also like the combination of turquoise and pink — it gives this otherwise very basic ensemble a little something extra.
What I really want to talk about though, is JEANS! I need your help dear readers! Today I attempted to go jean shopping. I have a couple pairs of skinny jeans that I like, but what I really want is a pair of versatile everyday jeans that can be worn with flats and a tee. I love the way Gap “Real Straight” jeans looked on the leg-less mannequin but they looked more like skinny jeans on me (even on the model they are a bit too skinny for what I am looking for). After trying on many pairs at Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic, the closest I found were a pair form the Men’s side of Gap — Limited Edition Skinny Jeans (which I can’t find on line). Surprisingly, the rise fit fine (unlike most jeans sold for men), the color was perfect, and the fit through the hips, thighs, and lower legs was all perfect. The problem – they were too big in the waist.
So, any suggestions? I have hips and thighs but a rather small waist so I need something with a higher rise. I am willing to spend a little money but can’t fathom paying $1oo or more on a pair of jeans.
