Lose fitted jeans

Yesterday I realized that I could no longer button up any of my old trousers or the once I have been borrowing from my boyfriend. So I went ahead and bought two pairs of mens jeans at my favorite second hand store. It feels great to be wearing lose fitted jeans again!

Wilhelmina: Hey Emma! Been reading your blog for years, and truly love the more sustainable viewpoint you have established. I believe that there are few, very few,other "fashion" bloggers out there with the same fire and inspiration!! So KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! :) Also, just wanted to give you a tip about another pregnant blogger atm - Jenny Skavlan. She's also a big pro-sustainability and she do campaigns and stuff together with the Norwegian "Myrorna", "Frälsningsarmen", "Emmaus" etc. And she also re-do or re-sew a lot of old clothes to recycle them and give them a new life! Also a big inspiration for me! So I just wanted to give you a hint on this if you didn't know :) Here's a link about mama-jeans: http://www.jennyskavlan.com/5236-2/ All the best & have a happy happy Friday! /Wilhelmina
