What I Wore: Wednesday {WIWW}

I’m still immensely enjoying having Adam on vacation. Next week he goes back to work and I’m not looking forward to it. I’ll miss my “babysitter/coffee-maker/wake-up-with-the-girls-bright-and-early” guy during work hours. It’s so much nicer having constant help with the girls and around the house. Oh well, c’est la vie.

Today, I decided to do another what I wore post. It’s been a few weeks and, well, I kind of have fun doing them. We’ve been spending time relaxing at home and doing fun things around base and out-in-town so comfort is what I’ve been going for.


Button-up shirt: J.crew
Cropped pants: J.crew

I love these new pants I got for Christmas! I recently bought cropped pants from the Limited and Gap, but ended up sending them back due to them not fitting how I liked. J.crew was the way to go.


What I Wore:: Holiday edition

Feeling a little under the weather today, so I thought it would be a good day for a blog post. I have decided that moms are not meant to get sick, mainly because we are not allowed the luxury of taking a sick day. Hopefully it’s just a 24-hour thing and tomorrow will be a better day.

We are going to Okinawa for our Christmas vacation in a few weeks. I recently purchased some lighter weight dresses to wear by the beach, since they are on sale at the stores this time of year and it’s also a bit warmer in southern Japan.


Dress: Old Navy // Nylons: Vera Wang // Shoes: Easy Street

I received this red dress in the mail last week and thought that it could also be used as a Christmas-y dress, paired with black nylons, shoes and accessories. So, here is a what I wore post, holiday style! Maybe my next one will come to you from the beach! ­čÖé

I have yet to find a good place to take these pictures in our new place. I’m hoping to get a nice floor mirror for Christmas — hint, hint — we shall see!

I Finally Found It

About a month ago, I polled my tall friends on their favorite pair of jeans. If you know me well enough, you know I’m not much a jeans girl. I don’t think I have ever been.

When growing up, I never had a favorite pair of jeans. I was too tall and lanky to find that “perfect” pair that most seem to have. Since college, I have┬ámaybe┬ápurchased two new pairs, and have hardly worn them. (I guess being pregnant twice since then has also had something to do with that.)

So, a couple months ago I began my quest to find that “perfect” pair. I know I have a really long inseam that is hard to shop for, but I also know that companies have started to cater towards us tall ladies more now than ever before. After seeing the many responses of my friends (thank you, all, for your input!), I decided on purchasing a pair from Gap. Reasonably priced, yet good quality.

Yesterday, they finally came. I picked them up from the post office, drove home quickly, raced upstairs, and ripped open the package. I could hardly contain my excitement (yes, I am that type of person where receiving a new pair of jeans in the mail is a very big deal) as I put them on. And, to my delighted surprise, I knew I found them.

My favorite pair of jeans.


Gap 1969 Long and Lean jeans

Perfect length, great color, and very comfortable! Thank you, Gap, for this great find!
