Light & Fluffy

I know, I write some heavy stuff on here. Being a mother of little girls in this big bad world sometimes gets me thinking those deep thoughts.
That's not today! Today, I'm thinking, more so drooling over my new jeans. Since I've had my second kid, I have had a love hate relationship with my body. I love my body because it has successfully managed to sustain life, twice and not only that, continued to keep life alive for 13 months after birth, a la the boobs.
The hate part, well that's a story I think most women can commiserate with. My body is a train wreck, plain and simple. Stretchmarks on top of stretchmarks + one sagging c-section belly = a royal pain in the ass finding clothes.
I know I don't look like I did in college. I do, however want to look a little more put together and I'm trying.
A few weeks ago a great site Haute Look had a plethora of jeans on for deep discount. Now, if you're like me, bigger then a size ten in need of jeans that cover more then the bottom part of your ass, then your search may be over.
Not Your Daughter's Jeans claim to be the "most uplifting jeans ever" and I have to agree. I bought one pair and am kicking myself for not getting more! My butt hasn't looked this good in clothes in a long, long time!
Between these new jeans and the few new spring shirts I picked up at Banana Republic, Gap, & Athleta (thank you Banana credit card!) I think I may actually have a few outfits to wear in the event we go out somewhere where sweats and/or yoga pants aren't acceptable!
What a great Friday!

  1. It really is so hard to find that perfect pair of jeans, it doesn't matter what size you are! When I find a pair that I like, I usually wear them everyday until they are completely's not a good method, but it works for me :)

    Anyway, congrats on finding that perfect pair! And thanks for linking up today. I hope you have a fabulous day my dear.


  2. Stopping by from Happy Hour. I've never had kids, but jeans are impossible for me to find too (I blame the boot-y).


  3. Jackie - thanks for stopping by today! I agree with you on the body train wreck part - including stretch mark city! I finally joined the gym and dropped a few unwanted pounds, but buying clothes isn't as fun anymore! I just cleaned out my closet for a garage sale and I have NOTHING left! I feel like I wear the same few things over and over. I'm dreading the shopping trip I will soon have to make! :)

  4. am so checking out that site * thanx! need me some good jeans ~ ~

  5. I love when you find the perfect jeans for you body! It's so rare I feel like buying five pairs just for the future!

    I'm new to your blog! I found you through FTLOB and can't wait to read more! Feel free to check out my blog as well. :)
