The Divine Denim

Kansas City is most famous for its BBQ and writers. Gates BBQ has the best ribs smothered in the tastiest BBQ sauce. After a long day of traveling, it was nice to be able to walk in and get reenergized with a rack of ribs. And by reenergized, I mean immediately pass out with a food coma. Good thing we were close to the hotel!


My favorite writer, Gillian Flynn, is from Kansas City, so I was excited to mark the city off my checklist of places to see. Getting to see the locations where your favorite novels take place is awesome. Books feel so much more real when you can experience the settings for yourself rather than just read about them.TheDivineDenim_1If you’re a bookworm like, me you’ll totally appreciate the massive “Community Bookshelf” in downtown Kansas City. But even if you hate to read, I know you can appreciate a good pair of jeans. Paige Denim’s Hoxton Ankle jeans are my denim soul mate, and putting them on is a miracle of a body transformation.  The’ll totally have you thinking that song “Miss New Booty” is about you.






Paige’s biggest claim is that your jeans will never stretch out.

I know, I know… This is impossible, right?  WRONG.

As of writing this, I’ve worn them for six days straight and can attest that they still fit the same as when I bought them. Although they’re stretch jeans, they don’t get stretched out.  It’s the most amazing thing to be able to try on a pair of jeans in the store and not have to guess at what size they’ll be by the end of the day.

With all the Forever 21s and H&Ms out there, it’s easy to have a million pairs of jeans in your closet, but none that you’re really crazy about. Denim is the one thing I highly recommend you invest in. A higher quality pair of denim is going to last you a lot longer than several pairs of a lower quality denim. This particular pair can be dressed up with heels, or down with a graphic tee and flats.

If you have an Anthropologie store in your area try them out for yourself if not I’ve linked them below!

    You are so beautiful and really look great! Please don’t be offended, what size are you in jeans and dresses? And how tall are you? I’m 5’6″ and a sz.10\M and want to know if I will look as good as you in all these beautiful clothes.
    Thank you!

      Hi Heidi!
      I’m glad you asked, I want you to be able to get the best fit for you! I’m about 5’4″. I tend to be on the fence of needing petites/ankle cut for jeans to fit me properly. I’m wearing a size 27 in this particular pair of Paige denim, but I’ve found in different cuts my size varies especially since Paige runs small. It really depends on the cut of the garment on the size I’ll purchase, but typically I’m a size 2 or 4 in dresses, depending on the designer sometimes I’ll need a 6. In shirts and rompers I’m usually a Small. I hope this has helped, if you have any more questions let me know!
