She Said She Couldn’t Wear Flare Jeans: Challenge Accepted

Ahhhhhh! I’m so excited to share this post! The “Challenge Accepted” post idea has been in my brain for almost 2 years! So often my friends or readers say, “I can’t wear (insert article of clothing) because (you name it).” Most of the time, I know they are completely wrong, but I know what it feels like to think this, so I just nod. What I really want to do is take them shopping at that very moment to show them they can in fact wear flares, or skinny jeans, or jean shorts, etc! I can’t help it. I’m defiant in this way, but I also don’t want my friends and readers to limit themselves!

This is exactly how this post started off! I received a late night text from my friend, Jennifer (an amazing instructor at Define and the General Manager at Tanglewood Define), who was convinced she was too short to wear flare jeans. #ChallengAccepted… Watch the video to see what happened…

 

Not only can she wear flare jeans, but she looks freaking amazing in them. I’m just saying!

In this picture, she is wearing the Paige Bell Canyon in Harbor. This color is sold out most places, but I found them at ShopSpring.com. Don’t worry, it’s a reputable site. I talked with their rep at the blogger conference I recently attended. It’s actually a really cool concept, but more on that later.

Here are the other jeans we found for her! These are by DL1961. They are sold out most everywhere, but I found them on Amazon!

And because she knows me so well, she sends me pictures of herself in the jeans! It’s crazy how much I love these pictures.

A special thanks:

Jennifer, I love you! Thank you for being such a good sport and for being my first “Challenge Accepted”! You made my 2 year dream come true!

Claire, I love you, too! Thank you for making such a fun video for us to enjoy! Where have you been all my life?! You made my 2 year dream come true, too!

Now, who wants to be the next Challenge Accepted?

    They look great on her! My excuse is the same: I’m too short (5’2″) AND I can’t wear heels.
