30-for-30: Day 4

I just buried and tearfully said goodbye to one of my best pairs of jeans ever. And like any time you say goodbye to a dear friend, I'm having trouble coming up with a replacement for that big, empty, jeans-shaped hole in my life.

I found a pair at French Connection that I thought fit the part - medium teal color,  boot cut, no so low-rise as to be showing my crack - but now, after a few wears they've stretched out and have given me ... SAGGY BUTT. Saggy butt, droopy waist, plumber's crack when I bend over. Sigh. My friend swears that I have to find a pear of jeans that feels too tight and wear them around (when no one can see me, of course) for a month until they wear in to perfection. I kind of want to try this method, but it only works with pricey jeans. In my life, I've spent $80 on a pair of jeans, tops (not these ones). And my favorite in the world were the ones I just buried ... courtesy of Target.

For now, I'm going to try washing/drying these jeans and see what happens. Even if I decide to throw in the towel, I'll have to put off buying a new pair of anything until after the 30 days are up. ;)

Cardigan - H&M, stripey shirt - thrifted, jeans - French Connection, shoes - Nicole.

Sidenote: I don't really like what I did here.
