Last weekend, I posted a photo of our family playing hide-and-seek at the park, and a friend commented “#sweatpantlife.” It made me laugh because it’s painfully true — I’ve worn the same pair of sweats all fall and winter. But! Today, Madewell launched some new jeans that I’m into.

The balloon jean. They’re a take on an iconic ’80s style, with a fitted waist and curved wide legs.

Thoughts? Would you wear them? I’m always here for a new jeans silhouette, and these look comfy and cool. Also, I love this vintage fit, this simple dress and this jean jacket (the back elastic!!!).

P.S. More dos and don’ts, including a wedding first look and two duvets on one bed.
