Behind every great woman, is a great pair of jeans.
Like most kids growing up in smaller, suburban towns, back to school shopping meant everyone piling into the car during one of the hottest weekends at the end of August to go to the mall. And more specifically, especially between the grades of about 4th and 8th, we'd head to Miller's Outpost for jeans. (Whoa, throwback, does anyone else remember Miller's Outpost? I'm clearly dating myself here.)
Confession: Jean shopping was always my favorite (shoes were a close second). Personally, I think it boiled down to the display: a floor to ceiling wall full of denim upon denim, each stack slightly different from the last. Distressed. Dark wash. Light rinse. Boot cut. Flared. Straight leg. Relaxed. Skinny. Low rise. High rise. You get the picture. Lots of possibilities that almost begged the sartorial question, who do you want to be this year? And regardless of what jean phase was of the moment, I always came back to Levis.
For that reason, I've been a Levis gal for as long as I can remember. The fit, the durability, the price point have made them a mainstay in my denim rotation for years -- and I love how they've practically grown up with me (or perhaps it's the other way around?). Either way, when they asked me to be a part of their latest women's denim line launch, I practically jumped at the chance. (OK, more like I pinched myself and then jumped.)
We snapped these photos a few weeks back on one of those crisp, but still warm New York afternoons -- the kind that make you feel like anything could happen and in a way, that anything is usually staring at you right in the face. Like a wall full of possibilities, asking you how are you going to crush today?
And then you crush it.
