Let me introduce you to my best friend, Leigh. We met over 20 years ago at a Mommy and Me playdate when her twins and my oldest son were just a year old, and we’ve been best friends ever since! Leigh and I talk on the phone every day (sometimes several times a day!!) and we’ve been together through births, birthdays, major life events, endless cups of coffee, lunches, dinners, holidays around the table, and unfortunately a few deaths. Leigh usually prefers to stay off my social media, but she couldn’t say no to an opportunity to do what we usually do anyway-hang out in the kitchen over coffee and catch up. And when I told her we’d be wearing our favorite kind of outfit (jeans!!) she was in!

Today we’re celebrating National Girlfriends Day, and I couldn’t imagine celebrating it with anyone else.What makes it even more special is that we’re BOTH wearing the So Slimming Girlfriend Ankle Jeans from Chico’s, in a new wash released for fall. There’s nothing more comforting than spending time with your best friend, and there’s nothing more comfortable than a pair of super-soft denim jeans that also happen to gently slim you down in all the right places! And this new dark wash makes us look even slimmer! A dark wash on jeans helps make a casual outfit look a bit more put together.
Let’s take a minute to talk about the rest of our outfits. While I’m normally a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl (Leigh is a bit more dressy most of the time), I love the no-iron blouses from Chico’s. Because they’re so low maintenance, they’re as easy to wear as a t-shirt but I feel a lot more put together, even when pairing them with jeans. Leigh is wearing the no-iron blouse in linen, which is a great piece for her to wear casually in my kitchen or at work when she’s staging homes from resale. I can’t rave enough about the no-iron sateen button-down blouse that apparently is also one of Oprah’s favorites. Everyone needs this in their closet!
I never need an excuse to wear a pair of jeans, but I’m always looking for a reason to get my very busy friend over for a cup of coffee. She owns and runs her own home staging business and cares for her elderly mother. She is ALWAYS on the go! We’ve been through a lot over the last 20 years, and I look forward to celebrating another 20+20+20 National Girlfriends Days together! I love you, Leigh!
