Dream Jeans


This post is in partnership with Scoop NYC

If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that I wear jeans basically every day.

It doesn't matter if it's 115 degrees or 15 degrees. Occasionally, if I really want to walk on the wild side, I wear a pair of denim cutoffs. Basically, variety is not my strong point.

So jeans are a place I'm willing to spend more money than in other places in my wardrobe because I know I'll get my money's worth out of them. I've basically sworn off cheap jeans and cheap shoes in the past year and my life is better for it (and my closet is much smaller for it too).

Earlier this year, I discovered Frame Denim which I'd never heard of before. They're a little more expensive than some other brands, but they instantly became my number one favorite brand.




They're the perfect length, they're ridiculously comfortable, and I only wash them because they get smeared with small peanut butter-y fingers - they never lose their shape or get saggy.

I've tried a bunch of different designer jean brands in the last year, and no other brand has been as fantastic as Frame (not that this has stopped me from trying on endless pair of jeans in other brands).

Scoop NYC has a good collection of Frame jeans in a bunch of different washes and styles (I have my eye on this pair of black distressed jeans because I have own zero jeans that are either black or distressed), plus a really nicely curated collection of other clothing.


Embarrassingly, the only other pair of pants I feel as passionately about are pajama pants. You'd think I'd be less picky about pants that I never wear outside the house, but incredibly I'm even MORE picky discerning about those than I am about jeans. (Joggers for life!)

But then, I put on my pajamas at about 7:15 every night, so I actually spend more time wearing pajamas than I do jeans.

So I'll take it as my right to be picky.

  1. That first picture kind of looked like it was taken at Fuqua and I'll admit it made me inordinately sad.

  3. "And I only wash them because they get smeared with peanut butter-y fingers..." I hate when I have to wash my jeans pre-child-destruction. Mine are constantly loosing their shape after 10 seconds.

  4. I'd like to know about your shoes too, they're adorable!

  5. I have a tendency to stick with jeans that fit, and due to an insanely long inseam those pairs are few and far between. I need at LEAST a 34 inseam to wear with flats, 36 if I want to wear heels, and I do.

    That being said, I have followed the "buy real shoes, not plastic pretenders" for years and is the reason that I continue to wear heels most days. When the shoes are actually built well enough to accomplish the job they set out to do (be walked in for 12 hours), you have to pay for it, but the job is done without pain and tears.

  6. I'm afraid of spending a lot on jeans while I'm still in the child bearing phase! I don't have a hard time with weight, but who knows what my hips will do! But seriously, crappy jeans are terrible. Though I'm the type that's always looking for good Jean alternatives because I like variety.
