Okay, this was supposed to be a trying-the-high-waisted-flares-trend post but -- my so-called high waisted flares brought their c game in the high rise department and I'd call them mid rise AT BEST. I'm going to need to go into full on mom jean mode if I want high waisted, I guess. So, we're rolling with: trying the trend - flares style which is silly because I've stayed true to flares ever since my very first pair (tell me you remember Mudd jeans - please!) and still prefer them to skinnies every day of the week/month/year.

Anyway, I used to be vehemently opposed to the sandblasted and faux whiskered front trend so you'll imagine my shock and delight that in certain lights ...


the backs of the knees feature the faux whiskers in addition to the traditional sandblasted front. Emphasis on delight.

C'est la vie. My 2006 self is horrified but that's okay.


I think she'll live. 

Happy Monday (night! today kiiiind of got away from me, apparently)

  1. You're pulling these off! And I'm loving this wedged, lob on you--you're hair is just perfection.

  2. I have to say the fake whisker stuff doesn't look too bad because the jeans aren't stretched within an inch of their life and the creases also seem to be there with the fade so it looks alright--better than alright they're actually cute

  3. I think it all looks great! I like the lighter wash with your skin tone. You look beautiful!

  4. I bought Gap's Revolution high-waisted flares last year (look at me - trendsetter!), and they are truly high-waisted. Just cover the belly button. They are my favorite jeans.

  5. heck YES Mudd jeans! Prior to my flare phase in 1998, I was rocking my one pair of carpenter jeans until they wore thin...in all their hammer loop glory. (Your jeans have high waist potential - just hike em up a bit!)
