1:30 2:45 make that 3:15 am and I am thinking about how I am going to get 2 kids up, fed, to school and then somehow teleport myself to my CPA’s office all before 9am. Sorry sleep but you are quickly losing priority. I just realized some of you are probably getting up as I hit “publish” Yikes.
Its’ mornings like this I am so glad I have a few classic pieces I can grab throw on and somehow come out looking like I carefully plucked everything out of my closet. I’m kinda a classic girl. I love my funky pieces (I’m sorry I don’t have enough functioning synapses at this moment to recall some of my favs) but… trust me I have some gems buried deep in the closet at least I *think* I do.
I already know what I want to wear and with the cooler temps I’ll be back in long denim for awhile.
These are my new favorite favorite jeans Hidden Hills by Paige … I have to say they have replaced my beloved Gingers (7 for Mankind). They are long, the dark wash is super flattering , they don’t lose their stretch and they travel so well!
Crisp front and back creasing accents clean, dark-rinse stretch jeans designed with a flattering boot-cut silhouette while a slightly higher back rise and countoured waist help minimize gapping.
- Zip fly with two-button closure.
- Five-pocket style with hidden credit card pocket inside one back pocket.
- Dark dye may transfer to lighter materials. <— watch your light colored shirts, handbags it will rub off.
- Cotton/polyester/spandex; machine wash. For best fit, wash before altering.
- made in the USA <– that means you are actually BOOSTING the ECONOMY when you buy from Paige! 🙂
Yep they are expensive for a pair of jeans (158.00) but if you are in the market for a high end pair that happen to be the perfect travel pant, these are great! Instead of buying 3 medeocre pair just buy ONE great pair. Quality over quantity as my mom so wisely taught me. You can order them online at Nordstrom.com. I recommend buy them to fit snug they do give just a little.
They come in several washes. I like Twilight but the thread color on the stitching is dark so you don’t get the detail on the pocket . If you like the lighter thread/stitch try the Dusk wash as seen below.
I will be wearing these with my favorite JCREW “merino Boyfriend Sweatshirt” <– ok this is so cool I bought mine Fall 09′ but I see they have brought it back again this season! Score! I love how it falls slightly off the shoulder, I nod to the 80’s perhaps! I usually wear the favorite tank in a lighter shade of grey (or is –ay) underneath. Its pretty soft for merino but I like a layer underneath and remember I’m a little tactile obsessive. Oh and by the way have you seen the latest Jcrew catalog with Katie Holmes and the actors from The Romantics? Uhhhh Josh smokinhot Duhamel is in there too.
and then layer a few chains to dress it up or a cuff <– I luuuuurve cuffs. Check out this new one from Stella & Dot.! Cute huh?
