Stylish fashionistas and friends,
For last month’s Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone, I talked about branching out from my Loft jeans to try the snugger fit of Old Navy’s super skinny Rockstar jeans. I have been wearing Loft jeans since I first discovered them as a part of one of the Get Your Pretty On style challenges. Until I tried Loft jeans, I really didn’t like wearing jeans much at all.
Can’t even remember what I wore BL – before Loft. The little bit of stretch in their jeans is magical and the vanity sizing appeals directly to my vain side! Even though I know I am not truly a size 6, I feel so wonderful squeezing into a size 6 at Loft. It gives me the same confident feeling that I get stepping on the scale to discover I’ve lost a pound. Knowing that it is almost always just water weight but it sure feels great for that fleeting moment.
As I mentioned in my Comfort Zone post, my bloggin’ bud Kellyann at This Blonde’s Shopping Bag introduced me to Rockstars. And I am so grateful. I still love my Lofts but my new Rockstars hold their shape so much better! My skinnies stay skinny rather than looking like the family moved out an hour after putting them on.
When I saw Kellyann wearing the mustard Rockstar jeans, I knew I had to have a pair of my own. Tried on a size 8 and a size 10 and felt more comfortable in the size 10. Had to order them because the mustard was so popular they were fresh out in size 10 in all of El Paso! They arrived a week later…
..and here they are.
Rockin’ My Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans
Remember last January how I broke my left foot putting on my pjs? I know, who does that? Well, I hadn’t planned to and had ordered these boots the week before it happened. When they arrived I was donning a different kind of boot…an orthopedic boot. And by the time my foot was healed, it was too warm to wear these over-the-knee boots. So last Saturday’s date night was the first time I had worn them.
Ordered my Unisa Saromi over the knee boots [similar, similar] last winter from DSW. Compared to the rest of me, I have smallish calves. Had read that the over-the-knee boots with laces at the top stay up better so that was one reason I picked these.
I have been looking for a fall kimono, well, since fall began. Kimonos and cardis are perfect wraps for El Paso’s spring and fall weather (even some winter days) and summer AC. A ‘fashion’ staple. Found this one at Charming Charlie’s. Had a hard time deciding between the one I ultimately chose above [similar, similar] and this one below.
Which do you like best? I have pants in that wine color and the dusty pink. Thinking maybe next payday I need to go back for this one. It would be pretty with gray, too, me thinks!
And you know all about my Old Navy Rockstar super skinny jeans. I wrote about them for last month’s Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone post. Have since ordered two more pairs, an olive and a gray. Will be showing those off in an upcoming fashion haus post soon.
My new jeans are mid-rise. Hallelujah, fashion has returned to its senses about the rise in jeans. They tried convince us that a little bit of fabric covering our behinds made them look so much smaller. There was less denim covering it, my behind looked the same size, there was just more of it hanging out for all the world to see.
I wore this outfit for date night…we went to A Christmas Fair, had a beer at the Fainting Goat, watched the Dia de los Muertos parade, and then dinner at Victoria’s Mexican Restaurant and walked around the outlet mall.
Great date night!
We are going to have a very special date night tonight. But will save the deets for another post. Just know that we are going to be marking off another activity from my autumn bucket list.
What plans do you have this 3 day weekend? Maybe you’re making progress on your bucket list, too. Hope whatever it is, you stay warm and safe.
Hugs and kisses,
