I know my outfits can be rather boring and maybe a bit repetitive, but I don’t post anything that I haven’t worn IRL. I work in an office M-F and come home to a special-needs teenager, two dogs and often a basket of laundry. No red carpets, no high-profile charity parties, no art gallery openings. Maybe dinner out with le monsieur once a week. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good life, but just doesn’t provide a lot of opportunities for high style. My clothes need to be functional, appropriate for a Business Casual office and (mostly) washable.
I thought nothing would get my out of my NYDJ’s until I tried these Eileen Fisher organic cotton skinny jeans. I’ve tried other premium skinny jeans before, but a) the rise is always too low and b) the legs from the knee down are constricting to the point of triggering my claustrophobia. These on the other hand are comfortable, lightweight, flattering, and have a high enough rise that I’m not constantly tugging or feeling a draft when I sit.
(Another reality check: comfort is non-negotiable for me. If something squeezes, pinches, binds, needs constant adjusting or demands my attention, it has no place in my closet.)
