After years of wearing skinny jeans, low rise jeans, and mid-rise jeans, it feels great to get back into a pair of old-school denim jeans.
I found these vintage Lee jeans last year at Brimfield Flea. I love the quality of the thick, heavy cotton denim, and the comfort of the high waist and full leg. I love my skinny jeans yet whenever I slip on this pair, I’m reminded how thin, tight, low, and skinny denim has become over the past fifteen years. Moving forward, I intend to invest in quality denim vs the thin disposable variety that dominates fast fashion. And, when the flea market season begins in the spring, I will be there.
I’ve styled them here with a navy and gold Equipment blouse and a navy St. John cardigan that I picked up in a consignment store. I love the gold metal trim.
