I'll miss you...


This could be the last time I wear these skinny jeans till next fall. Since they are black velvet they don't seem quite right for spring and summer. Not to mention that I've discovered skinny style pants look best on me tucked into boots rather than with any shoe, heel or flat. I think the bulkiness of the boots balances out the snug porportions around my more generous hips, thighs and tush :)


Today was cold enough to pull them off, but being that we're nearly halfway thru March and spring is inevitable, I think this is it. So farewell, black velvet skinny jeans, till we meet again.


(Suddenly I'm hearing that old song, "See You In September")


I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Good instincts - just about time to put velvet to bed. But dang, those pants look killer on you! Got any other skinnies lurking around?

Phew, for a moment there I thought you were bidding goodbye to us all!

I've noticed this week that it's getting warmer, and I'm going to spend some time this weekend going through my work clothes to find some suitable outfits that are a little cooler.

Hi Kayleigh,

How fun to find your blog. I found it through Work That Wardrobe. If you check out mine, and look at "About Me," you'll see why I said that. Mine is so close to yours!

Anyway, I was wondering yesterday why there aren't more of us in the 40 range who post what we actually wear on a regular basis. And now I find your blog. How nice. Though I'm being hypocritical because I haven't done it myself yet. Maybe....

I'm enjoying your outfits. I'll be back. Thank you!

Make sure and have them cleaned before you store them, that way they'll be perfect come October!

See ya next year velvet skinnies! I'm feeling the same way as you - we're halfway through March and it's time to put the winter stuff up and get ready for summer!

Hope you had a great weekend K!

Kayleigh said...

Thanks all!

Sal, nope, these are the only skinnies...I keep trying others on but they just don't look right. But maybe there's another pair out there....somewhere....

notSupermum -- perish the thought! (tho I did realize later that the title sounded a little ominous, sorry, lol)

Hi Sallymandy, I checked out your blog real quick and LOVE IT -- how neat that we have so much in common. Thanks for stopping by here, I'll be back to your blog, too :)

Karen, good point, thanks for the wise advice!

Thanks Trace -- yeah, it's time to trade in the heavy stuff for the light and dig out my shoes & sandals, no more boots. Hope you have a great weekend too!

Thanks again everyone!
