I’ve owned these J Brand Lovestory jeans since 2007 (I actually have two pairs), and in my mind, they are still not old. I’ve set aside my bootcut and now in heavy rotation are my skinnies, my boyfriend jeans, and these 70s’ style flares. I would love a similar style in a medium wash but I’ll have to add it to the bottom of my Spring wish list which is getting longer by the minute.
It’s probably obvious by now that color doesn’t make up a huge part of my fall and winter wardrobe. But every now and then I feel prompted to liven it up with a little something. It doesn’t happen often, but it happens.
You may remember a while back when I purchased this J.Crew Hacking Jacket in Double Serge Wool. I can’t deny that it’s absolutely beautiful, but given my propensity to wear dark colors when the seasons change for the colder, it really doesn’t get a whole lot of wear. Plus, it is one heavy blazer. As such, it causes me to sweat which can be particularly annoying at the office when I’m trying to be cool and collected and beads of sweat are dripping down the back of my neck, and unquestionably, my blouse underneath shows some indication that I just completed a 10K race. Furthermore, I always “pop the collar”, which I’m sure doesn’t help any.
Nevertheless, I do pull this jacket out on occasion and it never fails to induce several compliments by complete strangers. You’d think it would encourage me to wear it more often. But no, not really.
