those jeans again

I know posting has been sporadic this week, and I apologize. After a sty in the eye one day, and then a phone alarm failing to ring on another, this week has not started off with my most ideal of mornings. But hurrah! It's the weekend now, and a long weekend at that, especially since I'll be taking a holiday the day after July 4th as well. Can I get a WOOT WOOT? (no?) (carry on, then.) (party pooper.)

Some of you observant ladies have pointed out that I appear slightly slimmer these days, and you'd be right. I'm 10 whole pounds slimmer in fact, thanks to a change of eating habits for the better and semi-regular workout routines. That means I only have 20 more pounds to go before reaching my healthy weight range, so I'm pretty jazzed. So close!

But that also means I'm still stuck in denim limbo land, where out of the 7 pairs of jeans I own, I now am too slim to fit into 1 of them, but still too tubby to fit into my other 5 pairs from pre-love handle days of yore. So I'm stuck with only one pair of denim that fits correctly -- THESE.

striped shirt, gap
cami, cotton on
long and lean jeans, gap
belt, american eagle
wedges, lauren by ralph lauren
skull ring, ebay
leaf ring, australia
bangle, kate spade

My cami is from Cotton On, a store I was obsessed with when I was studying abroad in Australia during my college years. And guess what? They're opening one in the Galleria in Houston! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Just another reason for me to frequent that mall even more often than I already do. From what I remember, Cotton On is basically H&M Lite, which I don't mind at all, seeing as how my hometown has yet to get H&M Full Fat. Hmmph.

Have a good weekend!

    RE: your fab chic outfit, I, like many of the other commenters, really love those jeans. The "Long and Lean" name had me put off as I am anything but. However, I am now rethinking them as you look so great in them!
