My favorite holey jeans...

About a year ago, I wrote a post at Triond about my favorite pair of jeans. Luckily, they still exist. They've made it yet, one more year. Sure, they have holes and frays. But so far, not in those 'conspicuous' places.

It's cold outside. And, all of my responsible, pressing 'to-dos' are within the home today - other than getting the youngin's to school and back. After all, the laundry and toilets don't care if I go casual.

When Hubby sees me in these jeans, he takes notice and in his endearing concern for my well being he will kindly inform me that these jeans have holes. I always smile. These are the jeans that fit me so well. The perfect pair. They are over nine years old.

Truth be told, I hated them when I first got them home from the store. But we grew to love each other over the years.

They fit like they were cut and stitched for my body only. I love them. I still haven't found a replacement for them. I don't know how much longer they can hold out. I try to keep them on a shelf - to wear them only on those days that call for their particular level of comfort in an effort to extend their life expectancy.

But today is a day that requires the cold weather clothing comfort only they can provide. So today, I greet the world in my 'holey jeans'.

Happy Thursday! The day before FW favorite day of the weeeeeeeek!!!

I feel your pain, it's hard to let go isn't it? I recently put a pair of jeans in a storage box under the bed. They were indecent. The back pocket had ripped out and I continued to wear them until that tear spread and the entire rear was gone. Of course, I only wore them in the home after the pocket went, and I hated not having their comfy feeling outside too. My old jeans had not reached the veteran stage yours have though. Mine were three years old. Still, I miss them!

Thankfully I found a pair to replace them, and I hope they last a lot longer than their predecessors :)

I've had many of these. One of my favorite has a whole in the but and a bleach stain on the back of the leg. I love them even more for it.

These jeans are so comfortable and flexible that they have grown with me and my waist line :-P They a really low rise that has adapted to my body through the years.
