Too Old For Jeans!!?????!!!!!!!!

Now this is a shocker!


Watching the Today Show, I saw a report that after age 53, you are too old to wear jeans. TOO OLD FOR JEANS????? Obviously, they have NEVER been to New Mexico. I am wearing jeans now and I am way past 53! Jeans are the iconic, American clothing.

I have good jeans, worn-in jeans, grey jeans, and really ratty jeans. Jeans are a staple in my wardrobe. I also pack a pair of jeans when I travel. When you don’t have a good idea what to wear- jeans will work. Any top looks great with jeans.

I promise to wear jeans until I don’t fit in jeans or I can’t put them on. I love my jeans!!!!!!
