I can’t even believe that this is the last week of September! I mean really, where has this year gone? I feel like time is slipping away from me so quickly. I’m excited that it’s officially fall though and it’s slowly starting to feel like the season. Have to admit that I already had two pumpkin spice lattes. No shame either lol.
Several months ago, I participated in an amazing project with StyleWatch magazine called The Great Denim Try-On. It was all about finding that perfect pair of denim for women of all shapes and sizes, which I think sends such a great message. They had me try on over 25 pairs of jeans until I found THE ONE and then we did a fun photo shoot for the feature. The jeans in this post are the ones I fell in love with! As I mentioned in the feature, I am petite, but curvy. I swear as I get further into my 30s my hips just keep getting wider and because of this, I have had to go up a size or two from what I used to be. It’s always a struggle for me to find jeans that truly fit perfect because they’re either super long or don’t fit above my hips or they aren’t flattering on my butt. Please tell me that I am not the only one with these denim struggles! This pair seriously fit me so well not just in length, but on my hips, thighs and butt too. I love that they’re cropped so I don’t have to cuff them and the denim is super soft and stretchy. I was excited when they let me keep them because I will definitely be wearing them a lot.
While being in this industry can be super challenging and discouraging at times, there are also some amazing opportunities and moments like this one that remind me that I am doing something right. It keeps me moving forward on my path. It’s been surreal to open up one of my favorite magazines and see myself in there representing for my fellow petites. I first saw the feature in person when I was at the airport heading to Seattle and it was such a crazy feeling that I can’t even explain. If you haven’t seen the magazine yet, it’s in the October
Issue of StyleWatch on stands now!
As always, thank you for stopping by and for your continued support! Thank you so much to StyleWatch for the opportunity and the jeans. 🙂
