my favs this week (May 2, 2014) - JEANS!

Friday, May 2, 2014

My brain has felt like it has been functioning at a less than optimal level this past week. In part, I'm sure, due to lack of sleep. The remainder of the 'fog' can likely be attributed to me feeling like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off ALL. OF. THE. TIME.

BUT, I wouldn't want my readers (all 3 of you ;) to be disppointed by not having favs so here's what is going to happen. I am going to pick my top fav this week (and no, it won't be coffee... but it should be).



Am I the only one who has the WORST time jeans shopping? I've been cursed with a large butt and even larger thighs. I always struggle with jeans. Jeans that fit me in the waist, squish the life out of my thighs and butt and the ones that fit perfect in the thighs and butt are sooooo big in the waist that they fall down constantly. 

I HEART Mavi Jeans. Seriously.  

But Mavi Jeans fit me perfectly. They make my bum look good (well, as good as it's going to look until I finally decide to get back to my workout routine) and they fit my thighs AND waist! 

I previously got stuck in the 'cheap jeans' trap. I would buy jeans that fit me okay because they were on sale. The problem: they changed shape, lost color quickly, and never felt as good as when I tried them on in store. Enter Mavi Jeans. I have NEVER had them fade or change shape and I ALWAYS get compliments when I wear them (ya, people check out my butt!). 

I am going to try to make a commitment to myself to start investing in clothes. It makes more sense to spend a little more on jeans (and other quality items) rather than having to keep buying cheap ones constantly (we will see if Mr. B agrees).

The good news: Mavi Jeans aren`t that expensive. They range from 70-120 (ish) AND you can find them at Winners sometimes (I scored the bottom pair for 29.99!). ALSO, they  make jeans in lengths for shorties!! The 31' is perfect for my 5'4 self!

Bottom-line - buy good jeans that fit you WELL and don't be afraid to spend a little on them. Jeans are a staple for every wardrobe and you need to have at least one pair that make you feel like a million bucks! It make take some searching but there WILL be a brand/pair out there that feel like they're made just for you! Find them and buy them in every wash/color!

  2. Those look fabulous on you, but I still can't get behind spending $120 on one item of clothing....I'll have to keep my eye out at Marshall's to see if I can find them on super sale! Lol!

    1. I hear ya. Sometimes I panic at the initial investment. It means I will get a lot less new clothes :(

  3. I haven't tried Mavi, but those look great on you! I agree about owning good jeans, but it's hard to spend so much on them :) Have a great weekend!
