I know it might seem funny but I am so very thankful for my jeans...my wardrobe of preference all year round. In the 'old days' I used to dress up all the time, even wearing heels and pencil skirts to art classes in college and at that time I used to sew all my own clothes. In fact, I was accepted into fashion design in Toronto but, you know the old story, met my husband on the way across the country and never quite made it.
Anyway, I used to work in professional offices so dressing in suits was required, but once I had children I realized that slacks just didn't cut it. But jeans were fabulous, lasting longer and surviving more hours on the floor with babies, plus they were perfect for the studio...who knew?!? So now I have jeans for all seasons (including shorts) and all occasions...dark and long for heels and blazers, cute and cropped for summer. Since I began simplifying my life fifteen years ago, limiting my wardrobe was a big part of that and so jeans have now become my all around clothing of choice.
By the way, these cute, distressed boyfriend jeans were purchased in Montana last summer and right now they top the list of favorites. Great with a tank top and sandals and just as great with a blouse, blazer and kitten heels. I really do love my jeans :)
