Oh where to start! Two weeks of not writing & my head is about to EXPLODE! I have completed so many projects & took pictures every step of the way. I have a ton of very useful DIY stuff to share soon. Also have a few things I have been meaning to share FOREVER…so I promise to get to that too. I am taking three months off from booking sessions for a couple of reasons, but one of those reasons is to finally get a big project that includes an etsy shop (!!!) underway. My business brain just doesn’t quit. I love taking pictures…but that is soooo not all I want to do. Nor does it satisfy every part of my yearning to make stuff & help others. So…to give you a few clues: flips…lipase…babywise…painting straight lines…magnetic walls…all coming here soon. :)
But now…a much anticipated post. My hubby surprised us girls with some fancy dinner reservations on NYE & off we went into the woods for a nice, cozy dinner as our little family of three. It was so sweet of him & we brought in the new year in the perfect way.
Before we headed out, I grabbed my camera & shot this series…& it took every toy in our freshly painted playroom to distract my caroline away from my camera, which was balancing on a bunch of her books. After a few tries, I got enough to call it a tutorial..& she even made a little guest appearance! What I should have caught was her trying to put my boots on her little feet…but I didn’t want to move my camera out of position. I am sure it’s not the last time she’ll try to walk in my shoes…
So…HOW TO neatly tuck your non-skinny jeans into cute boots! Now, I am just not a skinny jeans kind of gal. I love my denim, but I couldn’t ever bring myself to buy a pair of skinnies. This pair of jeans (True Religion) is rather bootcut & presented me a challenge with my favorite boots–as they have no zipper & there is a lot of pulling to get my feet in. But I made it work. Here’s how.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- a pair of jeans. the key here is to choose a pair with very skinny knees. you run into trouble when you have baggy knees. we can work with a flare, but not baggy knees.
- trouser socks. thicker than knee-highs but not socks. these keep the jeans tight & snugly in place from the knee down.
- boots! zip-up boots are easier to work with, but any boots will do.
- start with your skinny knee jeans, the pair with the least flare.
- roll them up so you have a nice big cuff.
- neatly crease the cuff, with the crease up the BACK of your leg. therefore any extra bunching is at the back of your knee, out of sight.
- fold the cuff as tight as possible around your ankle.
- pull on the trouser socks. be sure you fold them over for added tightness & so they do not stick out of your boots.
- pull on boots, which slide nicely over the silky trouser socks.
- there you have it! cute boots + non skinny jeans! :)
