The Finer & The Find-The Jogger


The Jogger Finer + Find via Besotted


The Finer & The Find. Michelle and I both love and appreciate quality items + craftmanship, I think it’s part of our designer DNA, but there’s also no denying the thrill of the hunt. At our weekly meetings we like to Johnny one up each other on what new discoveries we have found, we thought it might be fun to share with you our little game of Finer & Find. The Finer would be something if budget was no object and The Find is the score. It’s not always fashion, we have found some pretty eclectic items, but between the two of us we hope there is something to tickle your fancy!

I have had a recent obsession with Joggers, as a new mama I am lucky not to leave my house in my pajamas’s, Joggers have the same feel as my PJ’s without the curious stares. Although they have an elastic waist band, usually a big wardrobe no-no for me (ordinarily I don’t have the self-discipline to not grow into my elastic waistband if you know what I mean). I find the Joggers comfortable and as Michelle likes to say, ‘A door-able’, meaning you can open your front door in them.

 Have you embraced this trend? Do you have a Jogger suggestion? Or would these never be in your wardrobe?

P.S. And if you must know, I did indeed get a few consecutive hours of sleep the other night which has been most invigorating and why I’ve been so verbose this week. I hope this keeps up (both the sleep + energy).

  1. I find it difficult to find a good jogger pants. To me, it is a harem pants in knit with waist band. Is there any material, colour or cutting to keep in mind? The pants you found look very put together and can be worn easily to work.

    1. Belindq there are drop front ones, those are more harem but that wouldn’t be for me, lol. I think stay away from knit, go for a twill which is a much stiffer but still comfy fabric and will be a lot more pulled together. The Gap ones look nice, I saw a woman on the street wearing them and she looked pretty effortlessly chic!

  2. I haven’t even tried on a pair if joggers, but I’ve loved seeing them in catalogs and on mannequins! I love to sew (even though it often costs more than running to the mall) and have been holding out for the Anima Pant By Papercut Patterns.

    1. Misty, I would love to see if you do make them, I checked out that site it seems there’s a lot of creative sewist on there, love seeing the creations!

  3. I’m absolutely in love with a pair of joggers that I bought from Athleta back in August. I was just perusing their website and it looks like they have some lined versions for the cooler temperatures! I delivered my baby a few weeks after you did, and my joggers have become by go-to ‘mom’ pant – so comfortable without looking schlepy. Glad to see my new go-to has been validated :)

    1. I have heard good things about Athleta, another mom (way more stylish and motivated than moi) mentioned them to me! Thank you for the rec:)
