New Jeans and New Hairstyle

Do you know how hard it is to find pants/jeans that fit me?  I just happen to be 6 feet tall (Yes, you read that right), and it is tough to find jeans that will be long enough for these babies.

But guess what?  I found some!!  For cheap, too!  Now I shop at Charlotte Russe when I am in America occasionally, but I never even try pants because they are for the skinny, short girls.  I didn't think they made jeans for real women like me.  But they do!  And they are comfortable and fit perfectly.  And want to know the best part about this??  They were 21 BUCKS! 

So I basically didn't take them off all weekend.  I know, kinda gross, but hey I was wearing them in.  My husband didn't really find the logic in that, but whatev.
I like taking outfit pictures and everything, but you know how hard it must be to be a model?  I thought it had to be easy, you just stand there and look somewhat mysterious, right?  Wrong.  There is some special way to pose for the camera that I am apparently missing, because I just look super awkward and dorky.  The funny part is that I don't feel like dorky when I am taking the pictures.  I guess I need to work on my poses.
Oh and I was suuuupper proud of myself for finding a cute hairstyle even with my dirty hair!!  It usually goes straight up into a ponytail.  But lately, I have been challenged to wear my hair cuter and put more of an effort into looking nice.  So I tried this half up.  And once again, I liked it and pretty much wore it all weekend.  It's like my marriage, I found one that works, why change?

Do you want a tutorial on the hair?  Would you like to see more hair styles on the blog in my quest for cute styles for dirty hair?  (I guess it could be clean hair too, occasionally)  

Happy Monday!

Wow! 6 feet tall? :) Sometimes I grumble about being short and having to hem my jeans, but i guess it's a lot worse being tall because jeans are probably always too short! :(

And your hair looks GORGEOUS. So shiny and smooth. Tutorials please! :)

Your hair is cute, I love the curls! I have had good luck finding long enough pants at Land's End (I am 5'10"). You have to look through a bunch to find them, but just today I got a pair of trouser jeans with a 34" inseam for $12 (off the clearance rack, of course).

Vanity is another, inexpensive, place to find pants as they sell them by inseam. They're a lot trendier than Land's End for sure!

Your hair looks beautiful. I love the curls! I can't imagine worrying about jeans being too short. I am barely 5'5" and my inseam is about 27" because I'm long waisted. It is so hard to buy pants that don't have to be hemmed a foot - because I can't do that. And I notice you're even wearing heels with those jeans. Embrace the height!

love the whole outfit ensemble! wow, 6 feet?? awesome! it is also hard to find jeans for shorter people like me, i'm 5'4 but i lack jLO's rack or beyonce's for that matter, so if i buy jeans usually there is this little "side pouch" if you know what i mean cause i don't have the curves. luckily, american eagle sells every jeans that fit my body! :) your hair is awesome, i don't know how to use a curling iron, i know, i know. :)

I always buy my jeans at Charlotte russe ! And I have those same ones and love them. They must be good for all heights because I am 5 foot 3 and and the reg length is perfect for me. Oh And Your hair is BEAUTIFUL. :)

I'm 6'3" and finding pants (not to mention shoes, long-sleeved shirts and any other clothes) is HARD! In France it seems impossible; French women are the definition of petite! I have found however, that The Buckle in the US has super long inseams and you can usually get out with at least two pairs under $50 each.
