Today’s Outfit: Second Denim Yoga Jeans

We teamed up with Second Denim to offer our lovely readers the opportunity to win a pair of THE MOST COMFORTABLE JEANS ON THE PLANET! Click here to enter to win a pair of Second Denim Yoga Jeans!

The wonderful people at Second Denim, based out of Montreal, were kind enough to grace me with a pair of the BEST jeans on the planet – their Yoga Jeans.

Let me tell you, these jeans far surpass ANY other pair of jeans I have ever worn or reviewed before. They don’t compare to jeggings, stretchy jeans or even denim leggings. They are completely different from any jeans I’ve ever worn before. What most impressed me was that they fit PERFECTLY. I also love the amount of stretch these jeans have, yet the material is still thick enough so that you don’t look “poured” into your jeans. You know what I mean…

I seriously can’t imagine these jeans being any more perfect. Once I put them on, I didn’t want to take them off. I have worn these jeans more than any other pair I own so far this fall. The mustard color is to DIE FOR…

Today’s Outfit: Lands’ End Chino Challenge

Today I’m sporting some Chinos from Lands End! Nice, right?

I accepted the Lands’ End Chino Challenge and was allowed to pick a color and style choice from Lands End.com. After much consideration (because there were so many style and color choices!) I decided to go with Women’s Petite Fit 2 Stretch Chino Trousers in Dijon Gold ($60 at Landsend.com).

These are absolutely going to be one of my Fall staples this year because they fit like a glove, the material is AMAZING, the color is to die for and best of all… they are super, duper comfortable.

I don’t ever want to hear anyone say “I wear yoga/pajama pants to the grocery store because they are COMFORTABLE! Jeans/Pants aren’t COMFORTABLE!” ever again! These pants will change everything you think you know about pants. Lands’ End practically reinvented the chino… These fit perfect, look sleek and stylish and they have a bit of stretch so they are super comfortable. Absolutely amazing I tell you!

THE COLOR of these pants are gorgeous… I’ve never owned a pair of mustard yellow pants before and I had no idea what I was missing! Because I’ve never owned a pair, I was stumped as to what to pair with them at first… And then I decided purple was the way to go! The result was THE perfect Fall ensemble.

A purple corduroy tailored blazer with a silky ruffle blouse, mid-heel mary janes, a brown leather belt and a hoard of gold bangles. I think this outfit is perfect for work or play!

I am absolutely in love with these chinos. They come in a variety of gorgeous Fall colors so you’ll have a hard time deciding which pair to get. They can be dressed up for dressed down. I can’t wear to try them with knits, sweaters, sweatshirts, tailored blouses and even t-shirts.

Bottom line… You need a pair of Lands’ End chinos for Fall! It’s a Fall wardrobe must-have, for sure.
