About a year ago, all the jeans I owned except for one pair morphed all of a sudden into mom jeans. I’ve been wearing that one pair (and reluctantly another) pair – so two pairs – of jeans all year.
Today for some reason I was in the mood to alter some of my jeans. One I cut into bermuda shorts, and the other is the subject of this post…a really baggy pair of black jeans. I laid my beloved one pair of jeans on top of them and using a white colored pencil I traced the silhouette onto the black jeans.
First I sewed with my regular machine and tried them on a few times before finally finishing it off with a serger. Don’t tell anyone I used the pink thread that was already in my serger to sew my black jeans. Shhh.
Less frumpy now. Will probably wear this to date night this weekend (my birthday!). I *might* run out tomorrow while the girls are at school and buy some summer heels.
Top: Something from Nordstrom Rack
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Banana Republic
Glasses: Hidden behind me so I’m taking these pictures blind.
I’ll probably carry my grandmother’s clutch.
I’m not really sure about the hem of my jeans though. I love the classic ankle-skimming look, while above the ankle is more fresh and warm-weathery. I will probably hem them up. How do you usually wear yours?
