#OOTD - Store Bought?!

Hello Everyone!
I hope your week is off to a great start! Mine is shaping up to be pretty busy as usual. Today it was chilly about 38 degrees but I still went out to  take pics of the outfit I wore to class today.  Store bought, can you believe it?! I couldn't so I had to document this! 


 It started to rain as I went out to take pictures of my outfit today. So I grabbed my rain boots and took advantage of the opportunity :-)  Wearing brights in the winter always makes me happy so a little rain couldn't bring me down. I brightened up my rainy day in more than one way - clothes and IKEA umbrella :-)

I totally do not like to wear jeans. I only have these because we used to dress in jeans at my old job for moral boosting type things. I generally like slacks - definitely high waist ones, skirts, and dresses. I mostly wear skirts and dresses as you will see as long as I can continue to share with you.

The Look: Levis Skinny Jeans, BCBGeneration Pumps, MK tortoise watch and bracelet, Liz Claiborne sweater and Worthington Button down shirt, Bauble Bar necklace.

The reason I do not like jeans is ultimately because they are not comfortable to me and finding the desired fit is extremely challenging. I have tried on countless pairs of jeans and I can't find any that work for me. Also I have IBS and my stomach bloats a lot so from day to day (sometimes hour to hour) depending on what I eat I don't know what size my stomach will be. I am in the process of removing items from my diet to hone in on what is causing this discomfort. So elastic waistbands are the most comfortable of coarse and I find my slacks accommodate my stomach girth better ;-). This is one of the reasons why I sew for myself more than I shop.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and my bright colored winter ensemble :-)

And as always, Thanks for reading!!!

Although I love lounging in jeans (I'm a child of the '70s) finding the right store bought jeans is a challenge. I always have that big gap in the waistline. It doesn't get any better when you have to put in those unsightly darts either - aka- your moma's jeans. Great blog today!
