The skinny on jeans

So I have never been a fan of skinny jeans. I just am not a fan of the style and I don't think very many people can pull them off, especially a girl like me...with my athletic thighs and all....

I went shopping with my sister (ok, not blood sister but we may as well be!), Lindsey, and I tried on this wicked cute top but it didn't look right with the jeans I was wearing (Big Star trouser jeans; LOVE them). So the cute dressing room girl suggested skinny jeans and my facial expression gave me away because she said I looked like I was horrified. I was. ME in skinny jeans??? AH HAHAHAHAHAHA! Funny, good one really. Good one. Was humor part of the qualifications for the job because you're funny! I was a little disappointed because I loved the top but it just wouldn't work with my wardrobe. Sad. Well a few moments later she walks in with skinny jeans. Feeling a little adventurous I decided to try them. Traumatizing and fearful. Hello, I don't need to try on jeans that look like they are painted on to my thighs. Good heavens. First pair-no go. Then the girl brought me a dark wash pair. Since I had already traumatized myself I figured I may as well try them. Ok people, ok. LOVED THEM. Can I just say how good they looked. I'm not being narcissistic but this is a breakthrough for me. But there's a catch, yes, yes there always is. I will only wear them with boots and then they look SO cute. OH my gosh I was in love. I've been converted. I also found another top to wear with them so I bought them. Oh my I haven't had this much fun shopping in quite a while. SO FUN! Also Lindsey bought her first pair too. We had so much fun. Lindsey looks SO good in them. The dressing room girl must have had a ball dressing us up because she kept bringing us tops to try on. She was great. SO fun! So when we got home of course we had to try on everything again..... and take pictures.....

The outfit looks better in person, I swear...and you can see my tag, eh hem, embarrassing

Dang she looks good! And yes, we got matching tops. Twinner Skinners!

I'm converted. And disclaimer: the jeans look better in person, really. AND no I don't always wear my "hooker" boots with them. I was just having some fun. I do have some cute black flat boots that I wear with my new skinnys and I love 'em. I can't believe I bought skinnys. And I love them. I can't believe it.

I couldn't agree more completely about them there skinny jeans. I actually bought my first pair last year (my sister forced me to) and yes, I was converted...but only for one pair. I haven't bought another since. Yours look GREAT on you!!!!! Good purchase! I love those kind of shopping days when things work well and you have a good salesperson -- SO very rare!!
