I frequently run into the "perfect fit in the behind, but too large in the waist" scenario, which means trying them on is a must. And some days I just feel like, *sigh* ain't nobody got time for that. And because the rise is also super important, boyfriend jeans always seem to fit the bill.
I'm fortunate to work for a corporate company that offers casual Fridays, as does my department on Thursdays. But I don't wear them to the office often, probably more so in the fall if anything. And if I have meetings, then I nix the denim.
My thing is, up here in the northeast we don't get too many sunny warm days, so I've got to make the most of 'em while I've got 'em. So I try to cram in as many flirty dresses and skirts as I can before I'm back to wearing thick tights and scarves. However, I will say those "jeans days" definitely come in handy. Like today, for example. Too tired to pick out my clothes last night and wake up in a timely manner this morning, and then I remembered, "hey, it's Thursday - jeans it is!"

On another note, I think Jennifer Lopez has done pretty great things with her Kohl's collaboration. This top, which is sleeveless with a gold exposed zipper down the back, is a closet keeper along with my teal fit and flare dress from her line. I used to hate Kohl's. Sorry, I did. I thought it was for old folks. But for the last couple of years Kohl's has been my shopping diamond find thanks to this line and others like Lauren Conrad, ELLE and Apt. 9.
