The Jeans Award

Hello, everyone!  Wow, I can't believe that we are at the end of the week already! How time flies.  I have been busy running around like a headless chicken planning and preparing for the twins' 14th birthday 'get together'.  I call it a 'get together' because there'll be no balloons, clowns, even candles involved.  The boys wanted something cool, relax and most importantly they want to spend some time hanging out with their friend.  So the plan is to hit the pool at the club, scavenger hunt around the neighborhood and later a barbecue party followed by a sleep over for some selected friends.  Hope everything will go as planned.

This weekend, I am sharing with you a post I dedicated to my favorite piece of clothing - the JEANS!  I swear when I say my closet is filled with jeans.  I love them so much I have multiple pairs in many different cuts and style but my favorite is the skinny. Recently I ventured into the comfort of slouchy boyfriend and boy, am I hooked! 

Choosing a pair of jeans for me is not like taking a walk in the park.  I have this weird body shape in between pear and hour-glass.  My problematic areas when choosing the jeans would be the waist and thighs.  Normally if the waist fit well (size 26/27) I would definitely have problem with the thighs - too snug.  But when the thighs are of a perfect fit, the waist would be big (28/29).  Truly frustrating!  But along the way through endless time in the fitting rooms, I found some nice ones that fit me perfectly.  The trick is in the material, it has to have a lot of stretch in order to accommodate my 'chunky' thighs.

So this week, I give you my selected best jeans for my body type!  And if you share my problem do share your discovery of perfect jeans! Have a great weekend, everyone!

  3. I love the GAP boyfriend jeans you showed! They look comfortable but aren`t chunky and have more of a normal waist hight rather than low rise.

    When my children were jounger I always organised a theme based scavenger hunt. Most popular for my son was Star Wars... a lot of work but a real highlight! I hope your twins will have a great birthday!
