Recently a reader (hi, Cathy!) posted these pants on our Mom Edit Insiders group saying they looked like the perfect compromise between denim and joggers, so I of course had to try them immediately (in the name of research, of course).
Although I don’t really remember wearing joggers that much prior to 2020, they’ve pretty much taken over my closet since the pandemic started, and now I’m a HUGE fan. (Shana and I even ended up with the same sequin joggers we wore over the holidays.)
So denim? Joggers? Yes, please.
The Perfect Compromise Between Denim & Joggers: One Teaspoon Shabbies Drawstring Boyfriend Jeans
And, you guys…this may be my favorite outfit EVER. Definitely my favorite of 2021 (ha). But seriously, these drawstring jeans?? O. M. G. The BEST. They’re like that perfectly slouchy fit that feels kind of sexy and kind of badass at the same time. And I didn’t think I would be able to wear them until spring or summer (at least not until the snow melts), but I think I found the perfect solution: sock boots and pegging/tight-rolling the bottom.
I folded just the tiniest bit of fabric over before rolling them up and the result is just a slight taper that’s easy to wear over boots. I think it helps to keep the look from being too sloppy…until I can wear them with sandals (because you know I can’t wait to wear them with some fabulous strappy sandals).
sweater: Halogen Cashmere Turtleneck (s) This was on CRAZY sale and it sold out, but they’ve carried it for years so it’s worth checking back to see when it’s restocked. (This is the crewneck version of the same color and fabric–also on CRAZY sale!)
Oh hey, Pinners…
