The days are short, and time is even shorter

OOTD Sun Dec 20 2009

Outfit Details:

top - H&M, cardi - Gap, jeans - Banana Republic, shoes - Steve Madden, necklace - Jones New York

Things have been a little chaotic lately, and I've been having a hard time squeezing in even a few minutes to take outfit photos. I'll try and be better about it going forward. In the meantime, here's the last outfit I snapped a few days ago.

I've had these jeans forever (since 2005) and they had always been my absolute favourite pair. Since I finally lost the last few pounds of pregnancy weight, I've been wearing them constantly. I find that Banana Republic jeans fit me better in the waist, and hips than any other pair I've tried (including high end pairs), and the pockets are flattering to my booty (aka junk in the trunk). Also, as much as I love the skinny jean trend, it's not the most flattering for my body type, so I rarely reach for the one pair of skinny jeans that I own. Bootcut, flares, trouser or even straight legs work so much better at minimizing my hips and thighs.

I love how you layered the wrap cardi with the bow top.
I've found that I like skinny jeans a lot with tunics, but not so much with other tops.
