As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that it’s easier to justify spending money on a nice handbag that will get lots of use over the years than on any one item of clothing that I can’t wear every day like I can use the same bag day after day.
I’m not afraid to say that I’m a mom who shops for herself at American Eagle (secret is out!). I feel 13 again when I’m shopping there, but who cares – the jeans are amazing and they always have a buy one get one 50% off deal (basically: two pairs for $80!). The denim is high quality and the jeans are cut perfectly for a woman’s body – I find that they accentuate my legs and are super comfy and high-waisted.
The jeans I’m wearing above are AE’s low-waisted jegging, and I also just bought a pair of the high-waisted jegging. I’m also a big fan of their vintage hi-rise jeans, which are so comfy I feel like I could sleep in them (I sometimes refer to them as my pajama jeans)! You might recognize the shirt from my Ice Cream post – I love this top, and have gotten tons of use out of it. The flats are the pointy ballet flat from Old Navy, but the chambray stripe pattern is sold out – I sourced similar styles below!
So there’s my secret: I get my jeans from American Eagle. No shame in my game, these jeans rule.
