So I was able to pull out my formerly "too tight" jeans and pack away the baggy ones!
On a recent thrift shopping expedition with my lovely daughter I stumbled upon a pair of "boyfriend jeans" by Vera Wang. Simply by Vera Wang.
Why do they call them boyfriend jeans?
Are we supposed to have borrowed them from our "boyfriend?"
Well Mr. HB just let me state now and for all to hear that I do not have a boyfriend, just the boyfriend jeans!
they are distressed
soft and so very comfy
there are two areas of wear at the top below the pockets
which will be covered up by a cashmere cardigan or one of my tweedy jackets
I plan on wearing these with my red ballet flats
a simple tank top and as I mentioned either a cashmere cardigan and pearls
or a tweedy jacket and a vintage brooch
I will choose very carefully where I wear these jeans
(certainly not when I am out with Mother!)
some of you might be holding your breath and saying NOOO hostess these are far too young a look for you
well they are and they aren't
I plan to classic them up like Ines does with her jeans
it's just attitude
I like the way they fit and can see myself running errands in them with a bounce in my step!
Who knew Vera Wang made things other than wedding gowns?
I must be living under a rock!
Ralph Lauren denim shirt
which I plan to wear like a jacket in the warmer weather with a white tank
a Hermes scarf knotted at the neck or pearls
sleeves rolled up
(it would look great with a pair of white jeans if I ever mustered up the courage)

While taking tea I pulled out this book
I used to buy Victoria magazine every month and saved the copies for years
the photos and detailed vignettes were pure art
they also published a few hard cover books over the years and this is a keeper.
I've tried to wear my Hermes scarves like this chic french femme
but on me it looks laughable
I do not want to accept defeat and keep trying it just in case I look a bit more Grace Kelly than HRH!
Hermes an iconic classic firm when it comes to leather and design
if they make great boots and saddles for the consummate equestrian why not for those who can afford it?
Love those buttery caramel colours.
The last two pictures are from the France book by Victoria magazine
you may be able to find a copy of this 2000 edition in your local library or at a used book sellers
My latest knitting project
which I plan to give away...
now I am onto knitting up cotton dish cloths
they make great Hostess gifts.
~ until next time ~
Hope that you are having a fabulous week!
