While I think we can all agree that the absolute worst shopping activity is bikini shopping, I think that jean shopping comes in at a close second. Back in the high school days when my mom used to still pay for my clothes (miss those days!) she would always lament how shopping for jeans with me was her most dreaded activity. Let’s just say I am super picky. My jeans have to meet certain criteria: mid rise to hold everything in, tall enough in back to not fall when bending down, super soft and stretchy but still a substantially thick material. Woof, that’s a doozy of a list and to be honest, few jeans ever meet all the criteria.
Let me introduce you to my new favorite jeans: James Jeans Twiggy. These are legitimately the softest jeans I have ever tried on, my mom and sisters were petting them when I wore them the other day, they are a great mid-rise, I love the grey wash, and the best part: the darting on the pockets is engineered to be extra flattering to your butt!
For being designer jeans, the price point isn’t bad at all either, these babies ring in under $150 and I will say are 100% worth it. I think every girl needs a little bit of a man named James in her life 😉
To play up the unique grey-toned wash and keep with the neutral vibe, I topped off the look with this new reversible grey poncho. Ponchos are such a great winter piece because they have a chic air about them but it’s like being wrapped up in a blanket. This particular one is so great because it is reversible so it’s like getting two pieces for the price of one and both sides are so good I had a hard time picking which way to shoot it. At just $42, It would make such a great gift! Just as a note, on the Nordstrom website the coloring of the poncho looks different but it is this exact one. I’ve noticed that happens quite a bit with items on their site and I don’t know why!
