Lindsay Loves: Denim

You know how everyone has a fetish? Some people like handbags, others like cardigans or diamonds, and others like shoes? Mine's jeans. Don't get me wrong, I love me a hot pair of heels (and sneakers too) but my big weakness is jeans.

I think it's kind of weird because most people don't even notice the jeans others wear every day, but I can't help it. When I see a pair I like, it's like it calls to me, pulls me to it and ensnares me with it's denim talons. If I walk away from multiple items that day, I will continue thinking about the jeans and not any shirts or dresses I may have left behind.

I gave our former nanny's daughter 12+ pairs of nice jeans a few months ago, but I still have at least 15 pairs. But.....

I'm in desperate need of clothes. It's been a long time since I've spent any money on cute clothes so I've been keeping an eye out lately. I saw these ones a few days ago and haven't been able to get them off my mind.

7 for All Mankind Rachel Bellbottoms. They were named after Rachel Zoe after she wore their Ginger jeans on her show last season.

I've always loved wide leg jeans, I'm so happy they're coming back. I wear skinnies with boots and sometimes heels, but they don't look the best on me. Wide legs hide my hips.

The Erin Trouser
See what I mean? You can probably barely tell the difference, but I'm having a hard time deciding between the three pairs. I love the dark wash of the Rachel, but I don't like the way it looks when she sits down in them. It's a little too big. But then I remind myself, I can't see myself  when I sit so it shouldn't really matter.

Is it bad that I'm postponing family pictures until I figure out which pair I want? I probably won't even end up wearing them in the pictures. What I really need is tops, and bras. On that note, where's your favorite place for bras? I'm kind of disenchanted with Victoria's Secret.

My link up was a bust. It's still open until Sunday so if you want to link up you can, but I've decided I'm not going to let this discourage me. I think I'm going to try again in two weeks.(March 8th) You can participate even if you don't have kids! Just find an outfit you would put them in if you had kids. Please tell me I'm not the only one who'd look at kids stuff before I had kids?

Also, have you liked Lilo Prints on facebook? If you have - I love you! If not, you should 'cause I'm randomly giving away a free print on the 29th


  1. would you believe I NEVER wear jeans? Seriously, I've worn them ONCE in the past couple years. I wear dresses and skirts (and sometimes leggings) every day. But I can appreciate a good pair of jeans, and I agree with you that the wide leg ones are great (I also see what you mean about them being too big when she's sitting down). Decisions, decisions.

    I like Lilo Prints on fb, but I can't really participate in your linkup since I don't have babes. :)

  2. I used to buy my bras at VS but now I buy them at department stores. Most recently, I figured out Nordstrom Rack has a great selection for GREAT prices.

    I don't have kids yet but I actually bought some onesies with pawprints I couldn't resist... I've had them for years :/

  3. I love a great pair of jeans too!

    Keep going with your link-up...I'm sure it just takes awhile to get it going. The other thing you might consider is co-hosting the link-up with a popular mommy blog. That way you get twice the exposure. Just a thought!

  4. I love those jeans, but because I'm short, I'm afraid the wide legged look wouldn't work for me. I really like that first pair, though.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, I always ALWAYS write back so please make sure you have an email attached to your profile :)
