I am tired of not being able to squat down with my kids without flashing everyone some crack, or having to wear long tops to cover said crack. Can you recommend some mid to higher waisted, every day boot cut or straight leg jeans for my long torso-ed, big booty self? Different price ranges would be great as well since I don't want to invest in a really nice pair until I lose the last of my baby weight. Thanks!"
Dearest Brooke! Carlota here. I have two munchkins of my own so I feel your pain. Nothing is worse than bending over to pick up your baby's pacifier and having your thong play peek-a-boo with the guy stocking shelves in the grocery store! Anyway I've tried tons (and I do mean tons) of jeans so I can help you. My personal faves are #2 and #6. I would buy a pair in every wash if I could afford to. Hope you find a great pair! xoxo

Carlota here: I'm a true girly-girl. I love strapless dresses, skinny jeans, basic ribbed tanks, lace intimates, patent peep-toes, jeweled sandals, buttery-soft leather satchels, sparkly pendants....you get the point! I also love to save cash when I can, so consider me your personal concierge when you're looking for luxury-for-less. I also have a crazy husband, two little munchkins (Carlo and Milly) and a furry yellow Lab. All of them are sweet and lovable, but they certainly do occupy a good portion of my day. However I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as others.
