leather & mint or turquoise or whatever

I had high hopes for these jeans. Such high hopes, infact, that I tore off the tag before I gave them a good wear around the house. Had I given them a good "try" for even an hour I would have noticed 1) that the butt starts to sag and 2) that there is some serious crotch bunchage when I stand with my legs crossed. Sure signs of ill-fitting jeans! Well, you live and you learn, my friends. The crotch bunchage won't stop me from wearing these jeans either. I really love the color - it is somewhere between mint and turquoise AND I got a compliment on them today despite the bagginess. Plus I can't return them, so I should try to find the good in this situation. I also got a compliment on this scarf today! Fun fact - I once took a class in high school about interpersonal relationships (senioritis had set in) and one day in the class we literally went around and gave each other compliments and had to practice taking them, too. I will admit before this class I was terrible at taking compliments - I felt so awkward. Sometimes I still feel awkward but I'm way better at faking a sincere thank you now! :)
