Navy Stupid Love

As promised, I broke the no white after Labor Day rule when I recently sported these Long Tall Sally white denim on a Sunday morning. At the urging of my sister, I tried the new Long Tall Sally denim line.

I previously had been avoiding denim – all denim – like the plague. Think back, have you seen denim on this blog? Spoiler alert: not since January 2017. That skinny cut from that fateful day had me feeling like I was wearing a compression garment after photos turned into brunch and an all-I-could-drink Bloody Mary bar. By the end of that day, I identified with Abbi from the Broad City episode when she left TopShop with the denim she was trying on because they were “now a part of her”.

All this is to say that I was deterred from wearing denim up until this past Labor Day weekend when I took the LTS white skinny denim out for its maiden journey. Even being crunched up in the back of a Lyft we took to the Marblehead Harbor, I did not feel constricted in the jeans. Rather they felt like a pair of leggings that just happened to have a zipper / button fly.

Had I not been so scarred from the January 2017 denim, I probably would have ordered a more appropriate size in the LTS white skinny denim. Do you think I heeded my sister’s advice and gone with my instinctual size? Nope. Rather I went with my “safe” size which still fit, although in an iconoclastic move compared to every other nice garment I own, after each washing they take a ride in the dryer.

Finally, can I get a hell yeah for LTS now making all in-house denim in 38 inch inseams?
