Ditching the skinny jeans for high waisted flares…


 One of my favorite people to follow on Instagram is C2C Central.  I talked about them here before.  Their #CoastToCoastChallenge for yesterday was to “ditch the skinny jeans”.  I’ve loved wide leg denim for….gosh 10+ years??  I mean really it’s been circling around since the 70’s no?  Well, even before then with Katherine Hepburn!

All that to say, I love the style, and back when I wore heels more often I rotated them in more frequently.  I recently scored this pair for $10.99 when the Huz and I were in San Francisco (I was actually super peeved they didn’t let me use my 20% Seattle coupon at Goodwill!).  Still worth it though, because they are super comfy and fun!  Albeit a size too small.  ;{  Oh, well.Blog Velvet Cashmere Cardi Ana Nonza Top J Brand Bette High Waist Flare Jeans-1 Blog Velvet Cashmere Cardi Ana Nonza Top J Brand Bette High Waist Flare Jeans-2 Blog Velvet Cashmere Cardi Ana Nonza Top J Brand Bette High Waist Flare Jeans-3Truth be told.  We took these in 15 minutes before Maya went to school.  So…excuse the puffy eyes on both of us, and the quick braided updo on unshowered/no make up me 😉 Blog Velvet Cashmere Cardi Ana Nonza Top J Brand Bette High Waist Flare Jeans-4I kid you not, Maya art directed this shot entirely herself!!!!  There were a few outtakes when I didn’t know exactly what she wanted, but it went something like this.

“Mom, you sit right here.

No, like dis!!!

NO.  HERE!

Ok, now I sit on your lap like dis… :)”
