Everybody has a favorite pair of jeans.  Mine have holes all over them from wear and tear but I just can't let them go.  What if I can't find them again?  What if I find a replacement pair and they just aren’t the same? Major jean anxiety. 

BUT for spring/summer there are so many amazing styles that I have to delve into my pockets and purchase a pair (maybe 3).

Skinnies seem to always be on tap but the current denim trifecta is; flare, cropped and white.

The flare is back and in full effect. They are very slimming and look good in any wash.

Cropped are coming in strong this season.  Perfect for the hot weather and give any outfit an extra dimension.  The most popular are in the light wash however like the flare they look good in any shade.

Last but certainly not least, white.  From trouser to boyfriend (and everything in between), white denim is HOT.  A lot of people think that white makes them look bigger but it’s the cut, not the color, that is the culprit.  As with any jean, try them on.  You will find the right fit for you.

Find your style below.  If you don’t like them, don’t fret, check out the TallSWAG jeans page

Tried on jeans and just can’t seem to find what you are looking for?  Make your own!  There are many places that custom make jeans.  My personal fav is Indi (  They have every length, size, cut and color for a great price.

Happy shopping!

Cross Colors

I reached into my handbag yesterday and something was terribly wrong.  I didn’t really know how bad it was until I pulled my hand out and there was ink all over it.  You guessed it.  A pen had exploded in my brown cross-body bag and ruined it :(

Of course there are WAY worse things happening in the world but for a split second my fashion world had ended.  Straight handbag blues. BUT my frown quickly turned upside-down where I realized that this meant I could search for a new one…and the race was on!

I looked up the one I had, no luck, but then I found some that brightened my day in 2 ways; 1) they were ca-uute and 2) the colors were so bright that they literally brightened my day (#supercorny:).
