Calling all dog lovers! People who think of their dogs as actual family members know that dogs are happy, expressive, and loving creatures all packaged into one little best friend.

Silver Jeans have been my favorite fit in jeans since I was in high school. I have had various washes and styles ranging from boot cut to skinnies, and have loved them all. Suki Mid Flare Jeans Today I’m wearing a new style: the Suki Mid Flare by Silver Jeans Co. I am a girl with curves in the middle (if you know what I mean), and I don’t want gaping around the waist because of that – which is what brought me to the Silver Jeans brand years … Read More
