This week, I met with a new blogger friend Jess Keys. We shot some fun photos out in the freezing cold and chatted over french fries and wine at Brasserie Margeaux in Chicago. Jess convinced me I needed a pair of high wasted jeans. We popped into Madewell where I surrendered and bought my first pair. I have been wearing Hudsons for years that hit my hips so these are a bit different and higher. I have a long torso and long legs. For reference, I purchased a 27. There is some stretch to them. I will report back how they wear over time.
