Maurice's Dark Jeans # 1

 I talked about my new dark jeans a while ago.  I'm just now getting around to the blog post.  Thanks for waiting.  This is one of two pairs I got from Maurices for Christmas.  I will feature the other pair in a separate blog post.
 I found them online because I hate going into the store and having to go through piles of jeans or to fall in love with a pair but they have run out of my size.  Because I am relatively short (5' 5") I bought these in short.  That's another thing I like about Maurices.  They have so many different inseams and sizes.  They have options for very tall girls and they even go shorter than these for those girls shorter than me (my sister Liz is 5' 2" and got an extra short pair).  Here is a handy link to the perfect pair of jeans tool on Maurices website.
 I of course fell in love with the back pocket scroll design.  Yep, those little circles are diamonds.  I love a little bling to add sparkle.
 The front button has a larger diamond on it with a few other small diamonds to accentuate the front pockets.

They are not tight at all.  I can actually breathe when I wear them.  Sorry skinny jeans, these are my new favorites.

I Love Stripes

 Again, if you keep things long enough they come back into style.  I have had this striped sweater and striped shirt for about 10 years.  Stripes are the "it" thing at the moment.  I love being able to get so much wear out of my clothes.  It makes it well worth the money I paid.  And I didn't pay very much for either of these things.
 Of course, the light blue skinny jeans are new and I talked about them in this post.
And my first pair of ballet flats are new too.  I found them on Cents of Style's website for $10.  Can't beat that price!  I discovered Cents of Style through the blog Whippy Cake.  I love Becki's style.  Now that I've got my stripes on I'm ready to face my day.
