I have been missing out, I can tell you that.
I guess I’ve just been wearing normal rise jeans. I kinda thought it was just normal that my shirts were never long enough and that the easily exposed gap between the jeans and the shirt revealed way more than I wanted it to. I mean, isn’t that normal? I didn’t know that there was a better way to LIVE.
And then – I started last weekend with two new pairs of mid-rise skinny jeans from Levi’s — same jean, just in two colors, dark denim (night fall) and blue denim (night storm). You guys, they were $34.99 each (on sale)! How is that possible?
I wore the dark pair to a rooftop party we were attending and dressed up the jeans for a date night outfit. The whole night I was beside myself feeling like these were the most comfortable jeans I had ever worn. I kept telling Danny …. um …. these are really, REALLY comfortable. I could just stand up, sit down, walk around, hold kids, and NEVER worry that my waist or underwear were showing. I didn’t even know how liberating a piece of clothing could feel. But this was liberating. They completely solved my problem of showing way too much at the waist. Sure enough, one of my very fashionable friends even said, “WHERE did you get those jeans?” Haha. Is that not the best thing to hear the first day you wear something? I knew I was on to something good.
So — for all of us women who struggle with the rise of our jeans — join me in going MID-RISE. GO, GO, GO ! It’s the best jean experience I’ve had. And, they look hot. I’ll just put that out there.
SEE SOME PICS AFTER THE JUMP!! And see a few more date night pics here, on my blog.
