are you a blue jean mama like me? if so, you have jacob w. davis partnership with levi strauss to thank. the two businessmen patented this revolutionary item back in 1873. since then denim sales have always been robust. but it was the 1950’s teenager that gave this humble pant some traction. and blue jeans, nicknamed by the baby boomers in the 1960’s, have picked up steam ever since.
these days, there are so many designs to choose from. and the comfort level is bar none thanks to spandex. so what’s a girl to do when it comes to buying the ‘perfect’ pair? well, my advice is to take an afternoon and try on a gazillion pairs. when you find the ‘one’ you’ll know it. but i thought i’d share a few of my favorites that i reach for time-and-again. and if you’re like me you’ll want to throw in one or more denim jackets. or a dress. or a shirt. there are so many choices these days.
here’s a tip before you head into the dressing room. take a pair of jeans then wrap around your neck. if the waistband fits comfortably then it will fit in the dressing room.
happy sunday, ladies! it’s superbowl sunday, time to gather around the television with family, friends and a few snacks!
