Check out some additional photos and details on my love of denim for Long Tall Sally’s “Love. Wear. Repeat. Denim” Campaign!
Normally I fly solo, but today I’m in love. Long Tall Sally sent me a pair of boyfriend jeans and we are in the midst of a beautiful relationship. I never dreamed the new CURATD partnership with LTS could be so…well, dreamy.
I’m a long pear, so it takes a specific cut of jeans to be flattering on me. I tend to stick with safe options like solid black skinnies and bootcuts, the higher waisted the better (yes, I am a granny). My fail-safes are LTS’s NYDJ Alina Soft Twill jeans (still for sale on the LTS website). On any given weekend, I can be found buying groceries, reading on the couch, or furiously attempting to remove my gel manicure (how do people do this?!) in a pair of these.
So trying on a new style of jeans, one in a lighter wash and with a shredded knee—BOTH knees exposed!—was quite the shake-up. People say they want Washington changed. Well, look no further! I’ve never shown so much kneecap in my life. I know I’m behind on a trend the rest of the world has been on board with for a while now; nonetheless, I will add to the echochamber and declare that it is a GREAT TREND. Somehow, this pair of LTS x CURATD Washed Ripped Skinny Jeans retain a classic silhouette (which I love) while also being more relaxed in fit and, of course, shredded. Did I mention they’re long enough? The pair I’m wearing come in a generous 36” inseam and could be rolled to add to the casual appeal.
In these jeans and with this top, I feel like one of those long-haired freckled girls walking through a field, hands skimming wheat, in a baked potato chips commercial. The Y.A.S. Tall Laure Blouse is so ethereal and breezy, I can see wearing this through all of spring and into summer too. As someone who works with a lot of southerners, they will be pleased to see me wearing covered arms during warmer months. The flutter sleeves make me feel angelic, and the cotton fabric could not be more comfortable or friendly to my sensitive-to-synthetics skin. The false button-up front easily slays my old foe: gaping.
In this loving relationship, I proceed into spring, and recommend any other long pears take a look at the new collection. LTS takes care of its kin, and for that, me and my bare kneecaps are grateful.
