THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SPEAKING.
It’s December 26th, and I’m naming a new MUST HAVE!
As of this morning, the jeans were available in all sizes, so you can breathe easy for now. 🙂
Now, some of you loyal girls might have already ordered this new MUST HAVE when I first spoke about them a couple of weeks ago…..and it was actually you ladies that helped me realize that these weren’t just another pair of jeans, they were DEFINITELY a new MUST HAVE.
(You will see some of your e-mails and facebook comments below!)
I can’t say enough great things about these jeans.
They are FLATTERING AS ALL GET OUT, they are stretchy, they are comfy, SUPER CRAZY SOFT,they hold their shape, and I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this…
but they’re flattering.
AS ALL GET OUT.
Did I say that already?
And they tuck into tall boots BEAUTIFULLY.
And my goodness are they flattering.
I also want to mention that these are NOT junior’s sizing. They are from the women’s department, so I know lots of you are going to be happy about that!
They remind me of a jegging.
Now let me be clear, they are NOT a jegging….but they do remind me of jeggings (because of their comfort and softness).
How do I know they aren’t jeggings?
Well, they have real fully functioning pockets in both front and back as
well as fully functioning belt loops.
They are definitely jeans.
But they do have jegging like qualities.
They are jegging-ish, if you will.
They have all of the best qualities of a jegging, BUT THEY ARE STILL A JEAN.
Just like the good Lord intended.
Here I am wearing the new MUST HAVE jeans earlier this week.
The gingham shirt and the sweater are both several years old, but you can still find both the earrings and necklace (both c/o Gorjana and Griffin). The earrings are at Nordstrom HERE and the necklace is on the Gorjana site HERE.
You may or may not know this, but it’s really hard to take good selfies of your jeans.
If you have never tried it (and I’m
hoping guessing none of you ever have), you are just going to have to trust me on this. I think I might have pulled a muscle in my back trying to get a good back view for you girls, but alas it wasn’t meant to be.
The pics below are meant to show you that these are I guess what you would call a mid-rise jean. I know they will fit a little bit differently on everybody, but they fit just below my belly button (which is why I’m calling them a mid-rise).
When I first talked about these jeans I said they were “higher wasted”…and they are….but they are not high-waisted, if that makes any kind of sense at all.
Higher Waisted? YES.
High Waisted? NO.
Yep, that should be as clear as mud now.
So, here it is…the official MUST HAVE alert!
Click HERE for the jeans.
For size reference, I am wearing a size 4, so I feel like they are true to size.
Some reviews say to order down a size, but I’m glad I got my normal size.
Here are just some of the e-mails I’ve received from y’all over the last two weeks about these jeans.
Bought the Wit and Wisdom jeans – totally obsessed! So thankful I found you and love your recommendations! I may wear these jeans every single day. My husband keeps commenting on how good they look! Thank you!
…. I also bought the Wit and Wisdom jeans this week and LOVE them. I’ve worn them every day since getting them and they’re soooo comfortable. I sized down about a size and a half (I’m normally a 12/occasionally a 14) and a 10 is perfect – the first jeans in a long time that aren’t falling down by the end of the day. And they’re the perfect high rise and length – NYDJ were always just a bit off and too short, and these are perfect.
I have the jeans and absolutely love them. Went a size down. Love the rise and they are so comfortable. They come in black too so I think I’ll be getting those soon.
Me likey! Flattering and so soft! Definitely a must if you are looking for higher wasted jeans!
Those are my favorite jeans in the entire world!! The sales lady at Nordy’s got me hooked on them a couple months ago and now I live in them!
I could see these jeans as a must have. Very flattering. It fits like a legging but very comfortable because of the stretch. I will definitely be wearing them a lot.
I bought these jeans when you first mentioned them a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve already bought another pair. These are definitely my most favorite jeans that I have ever owned. And next to my blardigan, they are the favorite thing you’ve ever recommended to me that I’ve purchased. I bought my normal size just like you did, and they are perfect.
Thank you Sheaffer for helping this mom of 3 feel good about herself again!
and I knew that each time I wore them I was more and more of a fan….but when all of you ladies started spouting your love for the jeans too….I knew we had to spread the word and that they needed to be upgraded to MUST HAVE status.
Nordstrom? Are you listening? Here our plea!
I’m fully aware I sound all sorts of cray for being worried about this, but I am.
Here are some other times that these new MUST HAVES have already appeared on the blog.
And fair warning, I’ve already photographed two other outfits that will be on the blog in the next 10 days or so with these jeans.
I’m telling you, when I find something I like, I commit.
I’M ALL IN.
In the picture below, I’m wearing THESE jeans and THIS
earrings c/o Gorjana HERE / necklace c/o Gorjana HERE
Nordstrom, if you are listening, WE BEG YOU, please have these stocked well.
(On a side note…..I don’t want to rub it in to all of your faces that don’t have them yet…but mine came in on Tuesday and OhhhhhEmmmmmmmmmmGeeeeeeeee. Love.)
The silver glitter are still available HERE.
I went ahead and added these jeans to my MUST HAVE tab at the top of my blog!
