I’ll admit it: I have never been a fan of jeans.
Yes, I know. How could I not like jeans? They’re an American classic for goodness’ sake! But, alas, jeans were never really my “thing”. Anyone who knows me knows I am more likely to wear a dress or skirt no matter what the weather (I’m looking at you, polar vortex). In fact, I don’t even remember wearing pants from the ages of three to six. So, to make a long story short, I never, ever wore jeans.
Flipping through Glamour magazine’s fabulous August issue, which is dedicated to all things denim, inspired me to find myself a pair of fabulous jeans. After an afternoon at the mall, those came in the form of these Madewell skinnies. I instantly loved everything about them, from the wash to the zipper detail at the ankle. The fact that they fit great didn’t hurt, either.
I simply couldn’t wait to slip these babies on, so I topped them off with a silky snake-print Aritzia blouse for a casual family dinner. By throwing on a trusted pair of wedges and a gold necklace, the look was instantly going-out appropriate.
