I’m kinda obsessed with jeans, alright REALLY obsessed. The down side of my obsession is the cost (sad face). Even if I buy a pair on sale, I still need to have them tailored to fit. I have yet to find a brand/pair of jeans that fit right off the rack. Which is why I have decided to expand my wardrobe into tube skirts and dresses. Tube skirts are great because of the stretchy waist band, goodbye tailoring bill, and they can be dressed down which fits my mom lifestyle better.

Anyone else have an issue wearing jeans off the rack?

Outfit Combo: top: Theory sweater via T.J.Maxx and Sachi fur trim hooded wool blend coat (another one here), bottom: Topshop check tube skirt and Uniqlo heattech tights, sunnies: Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’, and shoes: Nike ‘Pre Montreal’ sneakers

    Love this skirt, I also have to alter at times, but I do it myself :)

  • Ivete February 25, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    Oh, yes, I can relate to your jean situation. That’s why most of the time I just roll them up or cuff them! I’m loving your coat, btw.

    Such a fun look! Love that skirt!

    Oh I totally have the same jeans issues. Or I do find one off the rack but I def had to spend more $$$. I can never win haha. Nevertheless, you rocked a look without jeans!

    I like your idea to make the winter a little bit warm and you did it with your outfit.

    Love that skirt, check is such a timeless print and very wearable. I struggle with jeans as Im petite but I found a couple of good options in Topshop and Urban Outfitters especially when I go for cropped styles but I did treat myself to a pair of Paige Denim ones which were perfect! x

    Love the plaid! I am a big fan of jeans myself, but you cannot beat a good skirt.

    Oh, man. I haven’t seen snow like that in years! So pretty but oh, so cold for my Florida bones. :) You look gorgeous in this skirt and while I totally understand your love for jeans, this look is a great one on you! I’m sure you’d look great in anything so definitely stay open to jean alternatives. xx

    I also have a problem finding the PERFECT pair of jeans but recently found them at Cotton On. I have a hard time finding super skinny jeans because my ankles are too skinny and my legs are too long for regular but too short for tall sizes. LOL

    Amazing look and pictures! Beautiful skirt! :)


  • Jessica February 27, 2015 at 11:15 am

  • Lauren Michelle February 27, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    Love the pattern on the skirt! And that is part of the reason I wear dresses frequently…. It’s so much easier to fit a dress with stretchy fabric than to fit a shirt and pants!

    Lovely skirt, this look is soo look!

    Love that skirt! What a cool and modern-looking plaid!

  • Caroline March 1, 2015 at 1:47 pm

    I agree- so strange that jeans are like the everyman’s look but they cost way more than other thngs that would be considered more fashionable… at least in some cases!

    I’d love it if you could also come check out my blog! Maybe we can follow each other?
