What I Wore – Paige Jean Outfits

Happy Wednesday ladies. I’ve got two more jean outfits I’ve worn lately. This time with a linen camp shirt, a cashmere sweater, and two trusty fedoras. I was shopping for jeans a few weeks ago and really struggled because I wanted a finished hem.

I told the sales gal my size, which was no problem… but the finished hem was a big challenge. She kept coming up empty-handed until I told her that crops would be ankle length on me which opened up a slew of jeans options. I tried on and compared some AG, Frame, Good American, and these Paige. By a landslide, these Paige jeans were the most flattering because the back pockets were higher, closer together, and smaller than on all the other jeans.

I wore them last week with this camp shirt, my straw fedora, and slip-on sneakers. I picked up this camp shirt for several reasons. I love the sleeve length, the soft ivory color, and the notched collar is so flattering. I’m sure I will tuck or half tuck it later, but for a casual look, it’s not too long to leave untucked.

I bought my bracelet in a boutique many, many years ago and it’s still a best seller in many places. I found this exact one here at Macy’s. It closes with a snap fastener and is so comfy. They come in lots of patterns and widths and never require polishing.

I wore my new jeans again up at Lake Tahoe yesterday, (where it’s considerably cooler) with a cashmere sweater and my wool fedora which is the exact style as my straw one. In case you haven’t noticed, if I love a shape, I stock up 🙂

The sales gal spent a fair amount of time explaining what she liked about Paige denim. It’s a premium denim line started in LA by a former fit model who saw firsthand how difficult it was to find the “perfect” flattering denim. She focused on really good quality fabric and pocket placement which I had already discovered for myself in the 3-way mirror.

I now own two pair of premium denim, but made the mistake of buying my first pair with a frayed hem. I know many women love a frayed hem and distressed jeans, but I am most comfortable in pieces with classic proportions and  styling.

What’s your favorite denim brand?

Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
