I have a new jeans crush. I bought these from Gilt nearly two years ago, but they desperately needed to be hemmed, and I kept putting off going to the tailor until just last week. They were ready to be picked up over the weekend, and oh, they are PERFECT! I love my skinnies, but they're not super-comfy. Conversely, my super-comfy old jeans aren't super-stylish. I think these trouser jeans from Habitual combine the best of both worlds: they've got a tailored/slouchy Katherine Hepburn, Annie Hall, menswear vibe to them and they are so, sooooooo ridiculously comfortable. I want to live in them. Why didn't I get them hemmed sooner?!
By the way, the bag I'm carrying was my first-ever vintage find (about 10 years ago, now)! I've been taking it everywhere lately; it's one of those pieces that seems to accent just about every outfit, and can be dressed up or down. I think it deserves its own special post.
I wore this to a casual brunch with Dave and his parents. It was a perfect, lazy, sunny fall day. We went to the market, explored a bit of the Elmwood neighborhood, and then went home to relax. I think the sneakers kind of ruin the outfit, but I knew I would be doing a lot of walking that day. Next time I'll try some oxfords.
