Happy Monday friends!
I like a change of pace with denim. I have a fair amount of skinny jeans in my closet, so I like to change it up a bit. These wide-leg cropped jeans were bought on Poshmark, an online thrifting site for about $20. They have stretch, are comfortable and give you a different silhouette. Plus, I am leaving my survey up for you to complete until this Wednesday, Jan 22. This is my first Elegantly Dressed and Stylish Blog Reader’s Survey and I would love if you would complete the 10 questions if you haven’t already! Thank you!
HERE IS THE LINK TO THE SURVEY I POSTED ON FRIDAY. EDS READER SURVEY
I’ve had a good response so far, and hope to release the survey results this Friday. If you can, please answer it should take a few minutes!
The length is important here. I am wearing a size 2 and I’m 5 foot 9. I have sized down one in Wit and Wisdom, and what I have found is the
jeans without the “Ab-solution” waistband I stay in my usual size 4, the others without the waistband, I size down one size.
So, what’s up in Jess’s world? Can someone tell me why January seems to drag on forever? One of these years I want to go to the Carribean in Jan or Feb, to escape the winter months.
It seems to be all about movies in January for us. In the last few weeks, we have seen Bombshell, Uncut Gems, and we went to see 1917, over the weekend. The movie that wasn’t released when the Golden Globes presented it with awards. 1917 was excellent and really captured my interest! Must see!
I also made this Butternut Squash soup and buy the pre-cut cubes of Butternut squash at the grocery store. Makes this recipe even easier! Its soooo good!
Sunday was a cleaning day! Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a cleaning lady! With EDS comes fatigue in addition to pain, so I have to do a little at a time. If I genie granted me 3 wishes one would be cleaning help for life!
Ways to Wear
You might say, I can’t wear cropped wide-leg denim because I am short. I think the jeans all come down to the length and choice of shoes if you are interested in trying a pair.
One thing to consider is you want to see the waistband of your jeans as to keep the longer look. Wear a more fitted blouse, jacket or top gives you a better silhouette. Tuck in the top if it is longer and keeps it more streamlined. I am wearing a Target cream cami under the velvet blazer and I have tucked it in.
Since we are talking about proportions, there are certain shoes that will look best with the cropped wide-leg pant or jeans. Wearing a heel will go a long way to keeping a long leg line. If you are wearing wide-leg pants, as opposed to jeans, a way to keep the long leg line is to wear the same color shoes as your pants.( extra tip!)
I love the look of these jeans with a tall boot. There is no division between the boot and jeans and I just think it looks smashing! Knee high boots are everywhere now and on-trend. Every lady needs a pair of black or cognac knee high boots in their wardrobe!
Try a block heeled sandal in the Spring.
Sure you can wear an ankle boot, but make sure it has a heel. A pointed toe is preferred with an ankle boot, as it lengthens the leg, as opposed to a rounded toe since you are showing skin between the jeans and your boots.
