New Jeans I Love -Casual Fall Look

Hello Ladies!

It’s Thanksgiving week and I always get excited for this time of year. Not because I am a good cook ( hubby’s dept) but because I enjoy getting together with my family and beginning to decorate for the Season. My sister and her family will be coming to our house this year. Not to mention, I am a new Aunt! My brother and his wife, just had a baby..Aedan Hunter. So excited for them! He looks like a “Mini-Me’ of my brother and tiny! So, with all of these fun Holiday activities that we may be attending, I have been wanting to find some jeans that I love to wear, for more casual looks.

( I kept it simple with this delicate amber necklace from Uno Alla Volta. If i wanted additional color, i could add a brighter colored scarf)

I mentioned yesterday we went to Daniel Stowe Botanical garden, had some hot cocoa, and enjoyed a horse and carriage ride with my sister and niece. A little boy stood beside me telling me that he was going to sit in the front. I told him, without cracking a smile, I was going to sit on the horse! He looked a bit perplexed, but I had enough fun and told him I was joking. His parents laughed. We had a good time.

Back in college, I wore skirts and dresses more than jeans. Now, as a Fashion blogger, I have been listening and reading about these Wit and Wisdom jeans that several ladies have worn and look great in. I do have leg sensitivity and I can’t wear anything tight! I just never liked tight jeans. I certainly think you can wear jeans and have them fit great without fear of ripping them up the back as you sit down! or have the “painted on” jean look. I have always looked for soft denim with some stretch for movement, and jeans that keep their shape. It just isn’t fun to keep pulling them up or having to wear a belt because they don’t fit properly.

SO… needless to say, I bought these jeans from the Wit and Wisdom line on Nordstrom. I wanted a dark denim, as i like that i can dress them up for an evening out. These are The. Softest. Jeans. Ever. I know my hubby loves it when i go up to him and have him “pet the clothes” saying, feel this, feel this! The style also has the split hem, which I loved too for a modern, fun look. We love showing off our shoes, right?  They are very soft and fit just right. I did size down, so you know if you decide to try them.

I have wanted to pair it with this spice colored suede moto jacket from Nordstrom for the previous NSale. It took some doing, as this jacket went out of stock in a small over and again, and i had to have patience! You saw me wear it with my dress from Joan Vass last week. So, I decided to pair it with this  mustard and rust toned top and added additional color with my olive booties and plum colored leather satchel. I think this may be my oldest top in my closet 😉

The top’s Fall colors under my suede jacket.

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! I will be posting on Friday, some deals for BLACK Friday! I will be staying in the comfort of my own house.. not venturing out into Black Friday Madness 🙂 Stop by the blog Friday!

    Great jeans! I love the split hem. Your moto jacket is gorgeous, such a lovely colour. My husband likes to “pet the clothes” too (when I’m wearing them)…any excuse!

    What cute jeans Jess, and your top and jacket are perfect with your hair. As a fellow redhead, I’m so picky about colors next to my hair. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love your denim on you. I also have leg sensitivity and could not wear jeans for sometime… finally I found a super soft pair from F21, and now of course, I am better with that from the steroid therapy.
    Love your fabulous jacket, so rich and beautiful.
    So excited that you are an auntie!
    Thank you so very much for your lovely comments and support recently!

      Thank you Patti! I love these jeans, they are not tight in any way, even with sizing down. They are soft and comfortable, which is what i look for in denim

    Love this whole outfit! The moto jacket just completes the look so perfectly. I like a simple color scheme and find it works so well for fall.

    Thanks for the tip-off about these jeans, which look great on you! And that may be the oldest top you have, but it’s gorgeous and definitely a keeper! I always love your color pairings. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Thank you Kristin! Yes, I have some leg sensitivity, so i only will wear jeans that are soft and these are awesome! The price point is great too, so i bought 2 pairs. i like dark jeans as they are great to dress up as well. if you look them up they have other styles. Thanks about my top, i was glad i didn’t give it to goodwill, as it’s still in great shape. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! xx
