Hey y’all! Hope you’ve had a fabulous week! Thought I would share the outfit I’m wearing today as I help pick veggies, clean house, make ice cream, watch kids, and have neighbors over for a movie.
Yes, jeans! Contrary to what it may look on this blog, I wear pants a couple hours every week. Whether I pull them on during the slow hours of the morning to feed the chickens without getting wet ankles from dew, or if I put them on after a hard day’s work to curl up and watch a movie, nothing beats a fabulous pair of jeans that fits just right. My denim skirts are definitely close, though, which is why I’m such a fan of those. 🙂
I know many of my readers are opposed to jeans, so I’m sorry this post doesn’t encourage you directly. I would like to share, however, for my pants-wearing-readers, how I make jeans “modest”– at least according to my family’s standards.
So, I need to wear pants (yes, I know you can do pretty much everything in a skirt, but I still prefer to wear jeans for some tasks), but I don’t want to outline my rear-end to help out my brothers in Christ. Enter the tunic. This is basically a really long shirt that covers your bottom and flows like a skirt. I loooove tunics because I can feel totally comfortable around guys in my favorite jeans and not feel self-conscious. I don’t have to make sure my jeans don’t gape when I squat, because the shirt covers, and I don’t have to buy suuuper loose, unflattering jeans to get that “modest 1 inch of grab-able fabric on the thigh”, because my rear-end isn’t showing anyway. It’s just a bonus that they can be super cute.
Alright, I’ve gotta chop potatoes for dinner– see y’all on Friday!
