Jeans: It's What I'm Wearing

Does anyone know the Spanish word for denim?

Because that's pretty much the essence of Fashion Fiesta at Love Well.

(By the way, if you're here on the tour, ignore the sleet and snow outside my virtual window. I know a fiesta is supposed to be a celebration of warmth and sunshine and margaritas. But I live in Minnesota, and today, we're enduring yet another winter storm. Yo quiero global warming.)

Anyway.

I love my jeans. I esteem them highly. I wear them 6.5 days a week, varying only on Sundays -- when I might wear black or brown dress pants to church -- and the days when I have to do laundry -- when I wear my black yoga pants.

Don't believe me?

Me and my daughter on my birthday.



Me and my older children dishing up hot fudge cake on Valentine's Day.


Even when I'm pregnant, I'm wearing jeans.


Under the snow pants? Jeans.


You get the idea. I love that my jeans are comfortable, durable and able to stand up to baby spit-up without showing the goober marks. I almost always buy my jeans at Old Navy, because I first found stretchy jeans at Old Navy five plus years ago, and I never looked back.

You could say I'm loyal. Either that, or I don't really like to shop.

Plus, Old Navy jeans are cheap inexpensive, so I don't feel bad when I buy a new pair every season. (Warning: Wearing cheap inexpensive jeans 6.5 days a week will cause said jeans to look shabby quickly. Take action before Clinton Kelly finds you.)

But since jeans aren't all that exciting, and I do have a few pictures of some of my favorite non-denim outfits, how about I show you those before we call it a fiesta?

(Why do I suddenly feel like Dora the Explorer? "Do you want to see my clothes? You do? Great!")

This is me and my siblings at my brother's graduation last spring. This outfit might make it into the Top 10 favorite outfits of my life, mostly because I love that color green. Also because I love that scarf. My husband got it for me in Indonesia, and it's silky and a little shimmery and gorgeous.


I also have a love affair with funky jewelry. This shirt is a great color, but check out that necklace! Isn't it cool?


Of course, these days, my fashion accessories trend more toward the warm and moist.

And that's just fine with me. Because, let's face it -- she looks great with denim.

  6. I'm a jeans girl too. Somehow, I have given birth to a child who hates jeans. Will not wear them. She's 4 now and I have given up trying to convince her to wear jeans...or pants...I just buy casual skirts with shorts underneath and she lives in those. I just don't understand how that happened. :-)

    Jeans are great. I'm wearing jean capris right now. Almost put on long jeans this morning.

    We're having a cool front, you see, and it's only supposed to be around 73 today.

    As opposed to 90 like yesterday. :-)

    Enjoy that snow!

  24. How I tried to leave this blog without correcting my typo in my previous post! But the former English teacher in me just couldn't take the fact that it looks like a misused article.

    So....my previous comment should have said "AND can" intead of "an can". Hopefully your OCD tendency will allow you to appreciate the need for this correction:)
