Winter Uniform & Curvy Jeans Review

January 14, 2022

Do you have a go-to look that you reach for again and again? For me that has to be bootcut jeans with a black turtleneck sweater.  I think it’s flattering on me and it’s warm.  It pretty much goes anywhere!

When things are busy or I’m just not feeling experimental, I turn to this look again and again.

It’s been a rough start to the year and fashion has really been on the back burner for me.  The Omicron surge has hit the Bay Area and it’s hitting our school hard.  My husband and I are home sick right now with Covid.  Yes, we are vaccinated and boosted, but we are still sick. It’s not fun, but I’m just grateful that it’s not worse.  My go-to look right this moment is sweats and PJs, but hopefully soon I’ve be wearing some real clothes again!

Here are two new pairs of jeans that I got recently I’m looking forward to wearing again soon.  And they’re #CurvyButtApproved!

Chico’s High Waist Bootcut Jeans

These jeans are flattering, stretchy, and comfortable.

My only complaint about this jean is that I didn’t get my size quite right. I hadn’t ordered Chico’s jeans for awhile and so I went strictly by their size chart which suggested a size 1.5 (10).  I think a size 1 (8) would’ve been just perfect, so I suggest sizing down one size.

The turtleneck is Chico’s too and both the sweater and the jeans (and so many other things!) are on sale right now! (Chico’s pieces are gifted.)



Lucky Brand Sweet Boot

Loving these classic midrise bootcut jeans from Lucky.  They’re super soft and stretchy (my fav), so I’ll be wearing these all the time.  I’m wearing a size 8.  They were a present from the hubby, along with the Dr. Marten boots … another new favorite!

Take care and stay safe, Everyone!  I’m sure I’ll be back to feeling good soon!
