They’re a lower rise than I’m used to, and I only own two other pairs of jeans right now: a pair of dark rinse flares with the slimming tummy panel and a pair of dark rinse, stretchy boot legs. A teacher’s wardrobe doesn’t really call for jeans besides the few and far between – but much loved – casual Fridays. So these medium-rinsed, whiskered, embellished jeans were a bit out of my norm but also fun. Trying them on in the dressing room and browsing around the store wearing them to try them out, I thought they were passable and decided to take them home to try out over the weekend. Well, I wore them for the next three days. They’re super comfy with a bit of stretch, I can pair them with flats or any of my knee-high boots, and I have plenty of tunic-length tops to wear with them. I’m happy I finally gave in and tried them and that I ended up liking them. They certainly won’t replace my flares or bootcut jeans, but they give me another option for a different look.
