Is it just me, or is there a direct relationship between your age and the preferred rise of your jeans? It feels like every year I get a little older, and I want my jeans to sit just a little bit higher on my hips — like built-in Spanx, if you will. Because my needs seem to be ever-changing, I buy new denim on the regular. I’ve always been in the habit of buying my denim from department stores where the price tag sits somewhere between $150 to $200 (I figure you get what you pay for) but while I was in an H&M store the other day my eye wandered over to these and I thought…let’s just give them a try. Long story short, they are perfection. A nice medium wash? Check. High-rise? Check. Stretchy but not too stretchy? Check. With all of my denim prayers answered, I knew I needed to share my newfound denim love with you ASAP so you could join the party. Because I like to keep it real with you guys, I’ve always found H&M sizes to be a bit wonky. I’m wearing a size US6 in these photos, so I’d recommend going a size or two up from your usual if you’re ordering online.
I can’t believe that New York Fashion Week starts in just a couple of days. I hear that a winter storm is coming right along with it so I hope I can still shoot some looks to share here during those days, but you know how it is with me and the cold. Photos or not, I can’t wait for an amazing week ahead.
