The first snow of the season hit this past weekend. And when I say hit, I mean over a foot of snow was dumped over the northern Chicago suburbs. Well, hellllo winter! The deck where I once stood for these photos is now buried under snow, and I miss that green grass already. And wearing sandals. And running outside without layers. Wa waaaa. But I do have to say, seeing the sun shine on fresh snow covered trees is gorgeous. And it means the holidays are coming, which I am so excited for.
Anyways, back to the outfit. Yes, these photos were taken a little while ago, but I’m just getting around to blogging it since life got a little busy. That said, I was long overdue to get some new jeans that actually fit decently post baby, and these Halogen Distressed Girlfriend Jeans from Nordstrom did the trick. They are a looser fit (much like boyfriend jeans) but sit below the waist and are just a little fitted. They are super comfy, offer a very relaxed fit and still flatter the shape without being skin tight. But definitely size down one (possibly two) sizes! They run big and luckily, Nordstrom offers free returns & exchanges- phew. I wore this outfit to the zoo with T and Bryce just last month…when the temps were up in the 70s. The vest makes for a zookeeper-esque look, no? Gotta dress the part :-)
Have you tried girlfriend jeans? What’s your verdict?
