For the past two years or so, I have not owned a pair of jeans. The only thing I’ve worn is basically skirts or yoga pants (or, to my younger self’s horror, trackies). It hasn’t exactly been a huge problem, but more and more I have felt like I need some jeans – it’s not so bad when I just go someplace else to escape winter, but I don’t think that’s a viable strategy to follow for the rest of my life. So I finally got me a pair!
It wasn’t that easy to find a pair that fit all my requirements, because I need a higher waist than most stores seem to think I do, and I am very particular when it comes to colour. The above or one shade darker are the only acceptable options. In the end I found these in H&M, which is pretty typical, I suppose. You can take the girl out of Sweden, but you can’t take her love of cheap fast fashion. I just hope they’ll last!
