    I like them though they have a bit too much stretch for me. Having my weight concentrated in the center (tummy and bum) stretch jeans often end up that I can pull them off without unbuttoning by the end of the day. Joe’s Jeans do the same thing with me. However, I like the subtle pocket detail, the whiskering and color detail, they are super comfy and are the perfect length without any need for tailoring (and also seem shorter int he rise too – a true petite fit). I would buy another pair if they were darker and had less stretch (these are soft and stretchy, almost feel spongy).

    I love this look on you! I love all of your looks actually.

    How do you like your Joe’s Provocateur jeans? I’m also petite, and I’m always on the lookout for work-appropriate jeans.

    i love that colour on you!

    I’ve been reading your blogs for a while now and it’s really helped to change mw from a tomboy to a gurl (not that it’s a bad thing) who now wears something other than jeans and sweatshirts. i now realise that while i might mountain bike and hang out with a load of guys, that it doesn’t mean that i should dress like one of them…

    no pink though!

    Newp, the dress is from… early Spring? Fall? it was several months ago. I do love the guest designer lines at Target – sometimes you can find some super cute duds!

    It was good, that’s the only reason I allow it. Otherwise it is subjected to the painful torture of the ionic dryer. Actually by 2pm I was a frizzy mess and looked like a 70s male rocker with bad layers, but in general it held up nicely 🙂 Good hair, i9t deserves a treat!

    I really like how you say your hair is allowed to air dry. Like it was being good so not subjected to the dryer.
