I had to use another photographer than my normal 2 go-to’s for this one. Photography is not her forte . . . making chicken and dumplings, praying a lot, and having cute grandkids are her forte. She’s my mother, and I actually think she did pretty well. I considered it a success when she didn’t drop the camera, and listened to me when I said to wear the strap. But we even got decent pictures at that. I’m just super proud of her. Now if we could work on her driving skills . . .

I really love distress boyfriend jeans, and I knew they were going to be a staple here in Florida for the fall. But I have a little problem. My hips are quite different than the typical boyfriend. They will one day carry children . . . I have baby makin’ hips. Boyfriend jeans are much too tight is what I’m trying to say. So I made myself some. They may not be the perfect boyfriend jeans, but they work for me. All I did was by some flare jeans, roll them up loosely, and distress them. Easy peasy and super comfortable!

What’s your go to jean for fall?

I have decided that myself and Iron Man moving away from Indiana was not good for the Colts. We must be some sort of lucky charm that we didn’t even know about. If you’re a fan, you know what I mean . . .if you’re not a fan . . . well I don’t even want to talk about it. What does this have to do with this outfit . . . nothing. Except I took these pictures while I was Indiana for Influence, and there’s a banner behind me in one or two of the pictures. I miss Reggie Wayne.

I guess we’ll move on to the outfit now. These jeans are basically amazing. I haven’t talked about it on the blog a lot, but since moving to Florida I’ve lost a significant amount of weight. It’s just doing what people always say . . . eating right and working out. It’s been slow going, but these jeans prove it’s working. I bought them 4 years ago, and only got to wear them twice before I gained some weight . . . and then gained some more. It feels great when your skinny jeans fit again, guys. Especially when they are as great as these jeans. Jeans totally change the way your bottom half look, don’t they. I have a friend . . . love her so much . . . but her bottom half is the opposite of mine and recently she bought a new pair of jeans and was soooo excited that they gave her a little shape. a lot of shape actually . . . all from a pair of jeans.

What are your favorite jeans?

I hope you all had a splendid weekend, and are ready for the week ahead. I’ve got big plans for this week so the weekend was filled with relaxation on the beach, making new friends, grilling out with the Iron Man, and praising my Lord.

If you’ve been following my new capsule wardrobe you’ll know that this skirt was not included. So sue me. Just kidding, please don’t.

I had left a spot open for a maxi dress or skirt, but I just felt like this one wasn’t it even though it was in my closet. It fits a little weird, and has no movement. But I got the idea to try the knotted maxi look so I didn’t have to worry about the pulling near the bottom, and had to try it out.

The result? I’m still not positive this is the skirt to include in my capsule, but I love this look. Also, the skirt still fits weird at the top, but the bottom is all fixed with a simple knot. I definitely had to walk around in it a bit to get used to it. About halfway through dinner I told Iron Man it was not gonna work, but then we walked around Target for a bit and I was convinced. So comfortable!

What do you think – will you try the knotted maxi?
