A few weeks ago I suddenly found myself in the mood for a mini wardrobe purge…and would you believe that it was several of my formerly beloved skinny jeans that ended up in the “donations” bag?!
I’ve really been making an effort to explore and experiment with a wider range of trouser silhouettes; like these cropped denim flares, for example. Yes – I finally snagged an almost perfect pair at Ever New, with the dark wash and moderate (rather than high) waist that I’d been searching for.
I’m saying almost perfect…and that’s because these jeans should perhaps be an inch or two shorter on me. But what’s a petite fashionista to do?? Of course hemming is always an option, but then I’d lose most of the cute little flare that sets them apart.
Even with this latest closet clean-out, though, I still have a good selection of skinnies on standby…after all, they’re pretty much considered a classic by now!!
