I remember it was early on Saturday morning. I was maybe 8 or 9 years old and itching to get outside for a much-needed backyard excursion. I was waiting patiently for my favorite Levi’s to finish drying – checking in on the process every few minutes hoping time had suddenly passed at warp speed.
My Levi’s were so incredibly worn-in with patches marking memories of scuffed knees and tears from climbing one too many trees. Denim has always been and will forever be a staple of my life. I have countless pairs in my closet showing off the full spectrum of wash and fit. No matter how hard I try, I gravitate towards my favorite pairs every time.
I recently scored my favorite Levi 511‘s from Nordstrom – who carry off-sizes for those of us who don’t always fit in the norm. [insert cheeky smile] Nordstrom has come to be my one-stop shop for tailored essentials but their selection of premium denim is absolutely mind-boggling. I must’ve tried on forty pairs of jeans before settling back on my trusted 511’s… sending this public apology to the lovely team from Nordstrom at The Grove (like fellow blogger Kristina) helping me out.
Do you have a favorite pair of jeans? Is there a pair that fits like nothing else? Let me know in the comments! Be sure to take a peek at my favorite 511’s and other fantastic pairs from Nordstrom’s massive denim selection below…
