In college I was a Diamond Girl. David loves to say I was a cleat chaser but I protest that in order to be a cleat chaser you have to date at least 2 athletes, and I only dated one. Anyway, I remember I was sitting in the Diamond Girl booth reading a magazine when I came across a picture of Scarlett Johansson in skinny jeans – “ugh,” I thought – those jeans look so “pin up girl / 50’s and NOT flattering on her” Those jeans will never come back in style. Literally the next month they were everywhere…. and they are STILL here. I’ve absolutely jumped on the band wagon and have fully embraced the skinny jean. But let’s be honest, boot cut and flared jeans are way more flattering… especially for women with more of a pear shape. They make your legs look longer and have a way of streamlining your silhouette.

I got these jeans when I was living in Santa Monica. My friend Lindsey Brown (whose Bachelorette party is in May whoop whoop!) took me to this sample sale with jeans that all had to be “tailored” – Meaning they had extra fabric on the ends and you were supposed to get them tailored to your height. WHAT!? Jeans that are long enough for me to wear with HEELS!? Bring. It. On. Those jeans didn’t exist in my world at the time and I’ve LOVED LOVED LOVED these flared long beauties ever since. I honestly don’t think I’ll ever let them go, until I let myself go and they just don’t fit.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend and here’s hoping for a very productive and very short Monday. It’s like the Christmas of all Mondays though because Ben makes his choice tonight on the Bachelor !! Ahhhh! Bring on the Charcuterie plate!
