Flared!





{Flare Jeans ~ {"Yacht Trouser" via Torrid} / Ivory T-Shirt ~ NY & Company / Printed Cardigan ~ Ann Taylor / Suede Booties ~ Steve Madden / Leather Handbag ~ Rachel Zoe / Beaded Crystal Bracelets ~ Tai}

I knew I wanted these flare jeans the minute I saw them on Torrid's website.  And not only because flare jeans are all the rage right now.  I knew I would love the fit and length.  They are perfect! And like all the other jeans I get from Torrid, the amount of stretch is just right.  Not too spandex'y or stiff.

Speaking of jeans, my jeans are fitting a bit differently these days.  Since attending 1-hour Zumba classes twice a week for the past month or so, and cutting back on {far too much} sugar/junk {well we all have, really - hubby has been a health-nut lately}, I managed to lose a few pounds.  And I feel amazingly energized and healthy. :)

I normally wear a 16 and these are a 14.

Although I have always embraced my body at any size, weight, shape, etc., this reduction in pants size is a welcomed change.  I am NOT, however, welcoming the idea of having to buy new clothes.  Nope, not after cleaning / organizing my closet and making the unofficial decision to STOP shopping for a while.  Womp.

Oh and one more thing about these jeans, I just LOVE how they cover my entire shoe.


Have you or will you be trying flare jeans?


xoxo, thanks for reading and have a fantastic weekend! :)

  3. The length of those jeans, in my opinion, is perfection! I've probably grown to love that style since I'm short and pants are almost always too long, but I just love the look. And I have ALWAYS preferred a flared/wide-leg jean and pair of slacks. They just have a way of equalizing proportions.

    Props to the new pants size! And my gawd! What a difference some sunshine makes, eh? ;)

  4. Congrats on the weight loss. I feel you on buying new clothes. It's a blessing a curse. But, you can always belt dresses that get a lil too big and tailor other items that you absolutely love and can't bare to part with.
    I love the flares. I just ordered a couple colored pair today online.

    (And thank you for giving me inspiration to wear my cropped cardigan)

  9. Once again, you look fab! I've purchased two pairs of flares and have two pairs remaining from the last time they were the rage. As Spring approaches, I'll be wearing them. I love what they do for my silhouette.
    BTW, LOVE your bangs!

  25. Hi, I love your blog. I adore the way that you exude such confidence in your pics. For the past couple of years i've struggled with my weight and I love how you look fly and embrace your curves.
    As for the flares, I love flares and wide legs! I actually never put them away!

  26. Love it Lexy! I'm def gonna try more flare cut jeans. I'm such a stickler for the skinny jean. Here's to opening my mind to familiar silhouettes!
