That cold weather I was complaining about? Yeah, it warmed back up. Extreme cold warnings to nearly melting in a matter of days. Gotta love Alberta.

I never fully understood how badly I needed a pair of lighter boots in my wardrobe until I had them and had to send them back. Black doesn’t always hit the mark, you know what I mean? I was definitely jumping the gun on the warmer weather (it was still below freezing), but I pulled my gold flats back out. It may have only been just for a day, but I enjoyed it while I could.
Like I mentioned last week, I started reincorporating my pre-pregnancy clothes back into my wardrobe. Having a few pairs of jeans lets me rotate them to let the fabric recover, or, you know, to wash them. Adding the remaining pairs of jeans to my new ones and white ones means I’m back up to four pairs.
Well, probably not four pairs for long. These bootcut jeans are a low rise, which is definitely not the most comfortable anymore. I intentionally bought these with no stretch so that I could wear them in without risk of the elastic bagging out on me over time. At almost 5 years old, with FREQUENT wear, they have held up their shape nicely. My low rise skinny jeans will be 6 years old next month! Unfortunately, they are pinching my hip bones harder now than they did when I was this weight previously, so I think my hip dimensions may have changed. It’s a pity, because they’re great jeans.
Out of curiosity, how many pairs of jeans are in your closet?
