As someone who lives in denim and goes weeks without wearing anything else, it was hard to commit to something totally different. But when the season changed and I started to rotate the clothes in my closet, I started noticing a new trend creeping in…leather pants. I immediately ignored it until I found an affordable pair that would make having fun with the trend a little easier.
Instead of second guessing myself, I jumped right in!
Since the pants on their own make such a statement, keeping it simple with something like a plain white top is a cute way to wear it. But for a date night, these pants are so much more polished than my usual go-to jeans.
I like the idea of an ‘edgier’ bottom for a change. What do you think?
I finally conceded to the jogger pant life about three months into this pandemic. I had fought the urge to live in loungewear and finally caved and never looked back! Jogger pants can be stylish and are perfect for working from behind a computer, to grocery store runs, and at-home workouts.
Sure you can shop this style on Amazon, however, for a little bit more you can shop vetted brands during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I assure you these will not lose their shape, rip, or fade the way some of the fast fashion on Amazon will.
I live in jeans! I don’t wear skirts or shorts much, but jeans – yes! Over the years I have also crept my way up in price points out of curiosity to test out if when you spend more you get more.
In comparing the three brands I am going to share with you I wanted to judge them on: quality of denim, variety within the collection, price point, and durability.
It is a pet peeve of mine when denim stretches and lose their overall shape. I also don’t love it when denim loses its ‘luster’ after a few washes. NONE of the brands I have shared here do that. They have all been tried and tested by me.
That being said I wanted to share three brands at three different
price points that I love and why.
These jeans are true to size, have a lot of style choices in their collection and are a good buy! I gravitate to Articles of Society for more playful denim. These are great for a unique pair of jeans that you won’t necessarily wear every day. For daily wear, jeans keep reading.
Also available at Nordstrom (but on a steeper sale here), I describe NYDJ jeans as Mom Perfect. There is truly a practical cut that feels great for ANY woman out there in this collection. They tend to deliver the most classic and clean-cut looks that I would call “Mom-friendly.’ Because of this, they are perfect for finding a great pair of daily wear denim.
Khloe Kardashian really did a great job with this brand. I have several pairs of Good American jeans because they are ‘stylish.’ They offer an extra edge to help justify the price point which sometimes is worth it. Ten out of ten times if I am on a Date Night or GNO, I am wearing my Good American jeans. They are stretchy, comfortable, and edgy. In my opinion, totally worth the splurge (I have had mine for over two years). She has added so much to the collection that I have not checked out yet, so stay tuned for a haul on that soon.
Hopefully, if you are looking to shop some new denim, this post was helpful. Finding the right pair of jeans can be totally worth the effort when you wear them all the time.
My NYDJ jeans were gifted in exchange for this post.
When social media first took footing it was very easy to judge, especially coming from a conservative Indian culture. I remember being a part of the beginning stages of platforms like MySpace and Friendster.
Now, in my late 30s, I respect those who had put themselves out there from the very beginning. It takes time to learn who you are and what you stand for. It also takes time to learn to let go of the judgment.
In the beginning of our blog I was nervous to put myself out there. I was nervous about the judgement, to be more specific. What were followers going to say, you’re not fashionable? You’re not pretty? You don’t have the perfect life?!
Whatever my fears were, they have been conquered.
I’ve learned that being a part of any social media platform, you are often forced to read the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself. I’ve learned you can’t satisfy everyone. Some people will love you, and some will hate you. When you fall somewhere in a space where YOU are comfortable, it no longer matters what anyone thinks about your journey.
Whatever journey it is you choose, I hope that you find peace in knowing it’s about YOU and no one else.
Social media has given an opportunity for non-multimillion dollar backed celebrity endorsed products to be promoted on a genuine platform.
