This week's fashion assignment:
updating my collection of jeans.
I've been stuck on a skinny rut for a few years now and it's time to shake things up. For my New Year's Day parties in the country, I brought along some city chic--a new pair of straight leg jeans from
We were headed with the kids to an afternoon and evening party. I wanted a casual, but pulled together look. Since kids were in tow, jeans are perfect. I don't want a look that's too fussy when I'm chasing them around. I added my Coach boots (a heel that is so easy to walk in, even on bumpy country roads), a LOFT tank top, and my 15 year-old tuxedo blazer from Ralph Lauren. Tossed on a little lip gloss and my dangling earrings and my look was complete.
I'm wearing the Marilyn Straight Leg ($130) with Back Pocket Design Oak Meadow. This style comes in sizes 0-16. I'm excited about the fresh silhouette. This jean has a slightly narrower leg opening--it's right between a bootcut and a true straight cut. The rich resin wash adds a touch of sophistication and I think the blinged up back pocket dresses these jeans up. NYDJ provides free shipping and exchanges on every order!

I simply loved the jeans. They looked chic and gave my legs a nice long line. After weeks of feasting this holiday, I was happy to have the slimming features of NYDJ on my side. The jeans are created with the brand's patented Tummy Tuck technology to flatten the stomach, contour the hips and lift the buttocks. Hey, a mom can use all the help she can get.
We're also loving the trend of slim denim. Do you have a favorite pair of
