Jumpsuit Nation

I had always assumed jumpsuits weren’t for me. This long torso of mine would ruin the look, I figured. My natural waist is at least two inches lower than where clothing wants it to be.

Approximately two years ago, I bought a jumpsuit on a whim. It fit, but I fussed with it the whole first wearing, tugging the waist to where I wanted it. Unsurprisingly, said jumpsuit largely languishes in the back of my closet.

Still, all summer, I saw so many cute, casual jumpsuits, particularly in my neighborhood and it made me want to try again.

That is how I became the proud owner of three new jumpsuits.

First I found this casual one, in black, from the Gap. I am definitely taking it on my upcoming vacation. Of the three, it’s the easiest to take off in the ladies’ room.😄

You can keep your low-rise jeans and your jeggings

Clearly Gap doesn’t read my blog. If they did, they’d know how I feel about jeggings. At my age and all.

I don’t wear jeggings. I have tried them on and felt like an anatomical model.

What’s skinnier than skinny?

As if I didn’t feel inadequate enough.

Check out these denim offerings from Madewell and J. Crew.

Gap is carrying fewer of the style I like, the Mid Rise Always Skinny. They seem to be going exclusively low rise or close.

It’s like Gap, Madewell and J. Crew just want me to give up and shop at Chico’s.

Get red

I went to the Gap last week, lured in by a buy one, get a second pair 50% off denim sale.

My favorite jeans of the moment are Gap’s Mid-Rise Skinny so I figured I’d go in and pick up two new pairs, maybe try a different wash.

What really caught my eye, though, was the awesome red jeans Gap had…for men. The red is a perfect shade and the denim feels somewhat soft.

I tried them on, knowing that my very womanly tush probably wouldn’t fit in men’s slim cut jeans. If you have less going on in the hip area, you should try on these jeans if only to make me jealous.

Note: this isn’t a sponsored post. I just happen to like and shop at the Gap.

Ladies, would you buy men’s jeans?


I bought red jeans (women’s jeans) at Banana Republic. These.
