Happy belated Thanksgiving!  This year A2 and I  hosted our first Thanksgiving.  We had both her family and my family in town, making for a total of 19 people at Thanksgiving dinner!
After several days of cooking and entertaining I am beat and need to spend today doing laundry, running errands, and catching up on school work.  Its all about comfort, warmth, and functionality today so I’ve gone for jeans, sneakers, and a my cozy wool peacoat.

A few weeks back I asked for help finding jeans.  Advice poured in and I took notes! With a little encouragement I decided to buy the Gap men’s jeans and couldn’t be happier.  These are them with out alterations.  I am still planning to take the waist in but today am just wearing them with a belt.  I promise to post better pictures, as I have a feeling I will be wearing them rather often in the next few weeks.

I also looked into several of the suggested styles and wrote down the name of a few promising pairs to try on the next time I make it out to Nordstroms.  Thanks again for all the great jean advice!  I hope some of the comments helped you  in your jean shopping too.

  1. That’s a lot of people to host! I’m sure you pulled it off with style.

    Good call on the jeans! They look perfect on you.

  2. I have the multicolored, bright version of those sneakers and I get compliments on them all the time. I didn’t know they came in pink! Hmmm.

    Those jeans look awesome! I am a former Denim Specialist from The Gap, and I honestly can’t tell you how many women I put in the mens jeans. They look really great on you!

    Wow! I love it! I am from Wisconsin, going to school in Minnesota and have always found winter dressing to be particularly challenging. I was peeking back at last year’s December posts seeking inspiration for dropping temperatures from my favorite fashion blog and lo and behold…I even have these exact same shoes as A.! ALSO from Urban Outfitters nonetheless! I got mine on sale for like $6! I am just excited to know that I was already “chic” even before I started reading!
