Winter is the time for me to try out new jeans and I was thrilled to do so when Mott & Bow sent me these High-Rise skinnies to try.
Along with them. I was gifted this rich oxblood cashmere crew neck sweater to style as well
Mott & Bow
If you recall, I had collaborated with Mott & Bow before, trying their medium dark wash Jane jeans. Most of the jeans in my wardrobe are a darker wash, as I do like the dressiness factor when wearing jeans. `I also think dark jeans are great for Fall/Winter, and I reserve some of my lighter washes for Spring.
This time, when contacted, I chose the Jane in a med/dark wash and wanted to try a high rise jean. I have a small waist, so the idea of the higher rise appealed to me.
- Fabric Weight: Heavier Medium; 12.8 oz
- Fabric Composition: 44% Cotton; 42% Tencel; 13% Polyester; 1% Elastane
It is considered a power stretch with some compression, but the tencel makes it nice and soft.
I wore my normal size 27 in these high rise jeans. I loved that they keep their shape after wearing and mold to your body. They are a skinny jean and they do fit slim to the leg. This pair runs true to size and there is some room in the waist, but I do find that with Mott & Bow jeans.
This was the first time I wore high rise jeans ( except for back in the 90’s) and since I have a smaller waist, I o like them. They hit around my belly button around the small part of the waist. So, these won’t be the last pair of high rise denim I try!
Mott & Bow has sizes from 24-40 in various styles.
Styling the Basics
The Mott & Bow jeans were right up my alley. A slim cut, dark wash and soft. The Jane jean is one of their best-sellers and I can see why. I have another pair in a medium rise jean. Since the rise is high and hits at a higher point on the body, a moto jacket or cropped jacket works well as a popular sillouette. If you are interested in high rise denim, I will be doing a post later on how to style this cut of denim.
I am wearing one of my favorite BLANKNYC moto jackets in burgundy suede, paired with the monochrome look of the cashmere crew sweater Mott & Bow sent me. Cashmere is such a wonderful fabric and this sweater is a great basic to have in your wardrobe. I love the rich Oxblood shade, and just how warm it keep me, without it over heating you. They sell the crewneck cashmere sweater n multiple colors and stripes. I have one of their cashmere sweaters in XS which fit great, and got this in a S just for length and for some roominess. Its so soft!

No plans of course due to Covid, but my mom will soon be getting her vaccine shot beginning of Feb/end of. I have to find out if I can get my earlier due to my pre-existing condition. Wrote about keeping physically and mentally active during Covid, and some of the things I have been doing. I use my treadmill and home gym, been taking walks on the greenway outside, have been reading, The Great Alone, by Kristen Hannah, and I am also taking a drawing course. I have my supplies and am learning to draw dogs. ( of course) . I think we are all getting a bit restless.
I have been doing more cooking since my mom has been here, and yesterday made a Portobello Mushroom stuffed with artichokes, spinach, onions and cheese. See the recipe here.
