Sorry for the lack of recent updates – we are in the middle of an unseasonably low cold-snap & I have been trying to avoid going outside whenever possible.  Normally the average for this time of year is about -5C.  At that temperature I can still be outside with the dogs – take them running or snowshoeing.  However, with our recent temperatures in the -20’s, they want to be outside even less than I do.

CLOSED – GIVEAWAY: Yoga Jeans

chunky cozy scarf

I wear my dark denim skinny Yoga Jeans a lot (see them here, here, here, here and here), so when I was contacted about reviewing a pair of Yoga Jeans from the S/S 2013 line, I jumped at the opportunity.  Since I am a creature of habit, I chose a skinny style (YOGA 96/97 SWP1197 high rise – very similar to my original pair) but in a fun lavender color.  As expected, the colored denim is incredibly comfortable and is stretchy without stretching out.  I wholeheartedly agree with the claim that these pants are comfortable enough for yoga yet fashionable enough for everyday wear.  In fact, I wear my yoga jeans while lounging around the house because they are just THAT comfortable (something I never do with my other jeans of work pants – normally I am a change-into-sweat pants gal as soon as I walk through the door).  These are definitely a new favorite for spring!  If you haven’t tried on a pair of Yoga Jeans, I highly suggest you pop by Nordstrom your local denim shop OR enter the giveaway below!

To win your own pair of Yoga Jeans:  “like” Yoga Jeans on Facebook and leave a comment on this post to indicate your preferred style (check out the Second Denim website to see all the options)
The fine print:  Contest open to EVERYONE worldwide and ends Friday, February 15th, 2013 at 11:59 pm EST. Winner will be chosen at random and contacted shortly thereafter
