I don’t know about you, but finding jeans that fit well in the past 20 years has been a little difficult. My favorite style is a higher waist, small pockets in the back, and fitted (but not skinny fit.)
The low rise jean style of the early 2000’s never suited me. It was unflattering and I could not squat down to pick up one of my children without flashing someone. If I got a pair that fit my behind, the waist was too small and the extra fat around my tummy puffed up like foam on a coke float. And forget tucking your shirts in; I always wound up looking – well…off.
The skinny jeans were not any better. The stretch in them only lasts for a year before they look like wrinkly busted balloons. And heaven forbid you get some that are too tight! I was horrified when I saw my backside in skinny jeans in a picture last year!
Girls, we need to wear shirts that cover our bottoms when we wear those. There are nooks and crannies on a lady that are not supposed to be shown in public.
If they were meant to be viewed in public they would not be called private parts.
But I digress.
I think I have found the perfect jeans!
They are a trouser jean from Talbots and they have everything I love!
Good Pocket Placement
When I style my outfits, I like to always have one statement piece.
This cameo was given to me by grandmother when I was 19, and it works perfectly with this vintage look shirt.
Pintucks, dotted swiss and entredeux lace all in a knit shirt! Who could ask for more?
As an aside, I used to adore watching Martha’s Sewing Room on PBS. Martha Pullen would demonstrate how to make this type of clothing on her heirloom sewing show. I even made my daughter a dress from one of her patterns.
This vintage double daisy pin is one of my favorites! It also came from my Memmy! (my grandmother)
These are the pants if you would like to try them. They are $109.
I am not affiliated with Talbots- I just love their jeans!
These jeans come in sizes 2-16 and they also have Petites!
You can find the Trouser Jeans by Talbots here.
As always, I appreciate you stopping by and taking time to read my blog.
See you next time!
