Skinny, what?!

19 August, 2012

I am making it my mission to get a photo of Sadie with me where she is actually looking at the camera. She was having absolutely none of it tonight, not matter how many times I told her she is the best accessory I owned.

Can we talk about skinny jeans for a moment?

I've seen them all over the web, friends have them, they are featured in fashion magazines and all over ads for my favorite clothing stores. I think they are super cute, but it's a style that I shouldn't wear--I just don't have the shape for them. I'm all hips. Sure, I have long legs but am short waisted which generally negates the length of my legs. Although, if I wear things at my natural length I don't have to try really hard to go at Stever Urkel for Halloween.

Yesterday I went out and purposely bought myself a pair of skinny jeans and I LOVE THEM. They fit like a glove and do wonderful things for my curves. I can't wait to pair these jeans with boots and chunky sweater this fall.

Jeans: Old Navy
Shirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Steve Madden

I also went and got a hair cut this weekend. As much as I love my red hair, I'm on a quest to get it back to my natural hair color which is somewhere between a light brown and blonde.

A couple weeks ago Rachele requested the photos be done with different angles. So here you least favorite angle to be photographed in. As a photographer, I'm pretty good at making folks comfortable in front of them camera, but when it comes to photographing myself.....not so much. posting that wasn't so bad.  ;)


  1. That is how I felt my first size link up... awkward poses and such and in the wasn't so bad.

    1. It's definitely an odd thing, having to step in front of the camera, but in the end totally worth it.

  2. I love my skinny jeans too. So comfy.


    1. Seriously.....I don't know why I have avoided them for so long. I'm definitely going to have to go back and buy another pair or two.

  3. You look great in the jeans! I also feared the skinny jeans and just recently bought some myself that I cannot wear enough!
