We interrupt this self-imposed, life-is-damn-busy-and-hard blogging break to bring you an item of frivolity.
(You can scroll down to the bottom of the post for a tiny update on my going-abouts.)
Once again, I am waaayyyyy late to a fashion trend. I remember borrowing J’s jeans a few times when I was pregnant, when none of my regular jeans would fit and I didn’t think my still-expanding belly yet warranted maternity jeans. I didn’t like the look too much at the time, so I eschewed the boyfriend jeans mania when it started to become popular a couple of years ago.
Thinking back, I hated my pregnant body (both times) and I didn’t like the way anything looked on me back then, so I probably didn’t give boyfriend jeans a proper chance.
So when I finally tried on my first pair of boyfriend jeans at a local Gap…
And saw just how comfortable they were…
I became hooked. ADDICTED, I tell ya!
The Gap 1969 Destructed Sexy Boyfriend Jeans, to be exact. The Gap where I purchased these jeans didn’t carry petite sizes, but it didn’t matter because I knew I would be rolling them up. I know I’m not the best model, but seriously these jeans are soooo comfortable! I’ve even found myself reaching for them over my yoga pants!
Boyfriend jeans are meant to be loose, so I recommend you size down if you’re looking for a slimmer fit. The ones I’m wearing in the picture above is a 26 (I don’t know why online sizes are regular number sizing while at the stores, they go by waist size) and they’re comfortably loose — not baggy — on me.
Blogging has been difficult lately because the girls have been keeping me plenty busy. Claire also stopped napping a couple of months ago…but she’s at that transitional stage where she still needs a nap but refuses to sleep, thus becoming a cranky mess at around 5pm every day. So not only has my “quiet alone time while both girls are napping” gone bye-bye, I’m dealing with a kid who is full into her terrible twos and a “threenager” who becomes overtired every evening.
I’ve also become uninspired. Even things I find interesting online — stuff I would have shared on this blog without a second thought in the past — I figure that a popular site like BuzzFeed or Reddit has already picked it up so there’s no use in my re-sharing it. (Or do you like it when I share random stuff I find on the interwebz?)
But I want to blog more frequently again. There have been, and will be a lot of change and excitement in my life this year (including a trip to Korea later this month!), so I am crossing my fingers that this desire to become a better blogger will stimulate some motivation and creativity.
Hope to write again soon!
