Hmmm...What to Wear?

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and GAP.


Have you ever had one of those days where you absolutely cannot find anything to wear? You walk over to your closet and just stare at it...as if brand new clothes will suddenly appear? You try on outfit after outfit and before you know it, there is a huge pile-o-clothes on the floor. Things are not fitting the way that they used to (especially after giving birth to quadruplets). Not to mention, by this point, you are beyond frustrated and in NO WAY feeling like even going out anymore.

Sadly, this happens to me ALL THE TIME. Please tell me that I am not the only one.

In my vast 30 years of life (tsk, tsk), I have come to realize that regardless of my mood, or the occasion, it all starts with a good pair of jeans.

Have you ever noticed how a good pair of jeans can immediately cheer you up on a gloomy day? It’s like reuniting with an old friend after a hard day's work. Your blue jeans will never leave you or cheat on you. Like wine, they age and get better over time. Every tear tells a story...every loose strand that gathers around the heel reveals character.

I like to throw on my favorite shirt, most comfy jeans, and just curl up on the couch with my hubby for a good movie. There is nothing like it. In my jeans, I feel like I'm in my own skin.

Or how about a fun night out on the town with the girls? I love to dress up my jeans with my highest heels and cutest top. There is nothing like walking down the street, hearing the clickety-clack of your heels hitting the pavement, and yet feeling empowered and completely comfortable in your trusty 'ole blue jeans.

Your jeans can say a LOT about you as a person...your individuality, your personality.

You can dress em up...



dress em down...



or just lounge around.



You can create special memories in denim:






with lots of smiles...

and lots of love.

Most of all, you can make a good pair of jeans, whatever you want them to be.


I just so happen to love the premium 1969 denim from Gap.



With soooooo many different styles to choose from, any body type can find the perfect fit.



I love love LOVE, the "perfect boot" cut.



Yes, I was that nerd taking pictures in the dressing room. "Howdy Y'all!"



After goofing around, I decided to wander on over to the kids section---where I usually spend 90% of my "shopping time". Exciting news: Gap has recently unveiled its 1969 Premium Denim for babies as well!



Each item has been pre-washed for extra softness---and let me tell ya---IT IS OH-SO-SOFT!


Holy cuteness. Can I order that romper in an adult medium, please?

And I'm 99.9% sure that the smooth, calming texture of the denim has magical properties for your little ones. Upon wearing, the kiddies are more likely to be perfect angels. Okay, so I might have made up that last part~ but who's to say it can't be true?

Go check it out for yourself!


Don't want to spend your own money? How would you like to win a
$100 GAP Gift Card?!


Just leave me a comment and tell me:
"How do you like to wear your jeans?"

(My answer: I prefer to wear my jeans with a vintage t-shirt and flip flops, but also love the high heels/cute top look as well!)

I so love to wear jeans anyday! And new jeans would be wonderful about now as that was what I wanted to buy with my b-day money but with times as they are and with hubby laid off (unemploment now gone) money had to go else where.

Lish said...

I put on 50lbs in the last 38 weeks, so I'm currently sporting an ultra-cool pair of elastic waist jeans:) Throw on one of my husband's roomier t-shirts, and I'm good to go (aka, fully covered). But in two weeks, on go the skinny jeans and heals!!! The belly disappears when the baby comes out, right?

I loooove to wear jeans with a turtleneck sweater in the fall! I'd love to say I usually mix it up with heeled boots, but more often than not, I'm unfortunately slipping on my uglier-than-sin but oh-so-comfortable Danskos...(I'm in healthcare and stand all day, what can I say?! I'm sorry to say the shoes have crept into my non-work life)

I love to wear the lighter wash, worn out jean look with tees and flip flops. I go for the darker denim/whisker wash for a night on the town. Pair that with a fun top and high heels. I love the curvy and long/lean styles. I also love the different lengths they carry.

Flip flops, tank top & my well loved hoodie for the chilly fall nights (I'm a northern gal!).

Becky said...

I'm always in a t-shirt, flip flops and jeans. Sometimes I'll dress them up to go out, but with 2 little ones it doesn't happen a lot.
