As much as I love shopping, there has always been one item I’ve hated searching for… jeans! I don’t know whether it’s my petite height, rather curvy backside (ha!) or a combination of the two, but for some reason it has always been a struggle to find a pair I love the look and fit of.

That’s why the denim department at Nordstrom has been my saving grace. Between the vast selection, unbeatable return policy, free shipping and online reviews, the shopping experience has become substantially less painful and way more effective!

I had never tried FRAME denim before, but had heard such great things about the line from friends and bloggers I follow. So when I saw the chic dark wash of this pair, along with the slimming high-rise waistline and slightly cropped cut, I decided to give it a try.

Needless to say, I didn’t end up simply liking this pair, I loved them! My favorite part about them? They are chic enough to wear dressed up for holiday parties and nights out with friends, but comfortable enough to wear cozied up on the couch in a roomy sweater. In fact, tune in later this week to see how I wear this same pair for errands during this busy time of year!

If I’m going to spend the big bucks on a pair of designer jeans, they have to be all that and a bag of chips… know what I mean? They have to look, fit and feel great. I’m so happy to have found that in this pair of FRAME jeans, and can’t wait to show you more about why this week!
