{Skinny Jeans!}

When it comes to “SkiNnY JeAnS” on people there are two categories (in my opinion).

Those who look great in them and those who don’t.  I’m not being negative, just ReAliStiC.  You find out what looks good on you and then go with it and when I initially tried on skinny jeans a couple of years ago I realized that I fell into the second category.

That all changed on a recent shopping trip with Lara.  She tried on a pair of “JeGgiNgS” (a combination of jeans and leggings).  They were so flattering on her I just had to try them myself.  And when I did, I loved them.  My first response was, “I JuSt LoSt 10 PoUnDs!”

Now, I still don’t like the way I look in skinny jeans, that is, before I put the boots on, but once you put the boots on it changes everything.  In fact, I can’t believe I’ve been trying to tuck my regular jeans into my boots.  Uncomfortable!!  But with skinny jeans or jeggings that problem is alleviated.

If you still aren’t sure you will like the way you look in skinny jeans (they do fit snug) then a tunic or long sweater is the answer.  If you have never tried them, but are looking for a new, FaShiOnabLe look give them a try!  Just remember you need to buy them snug.  Lose fit does not work with these guys!

By the way, if you’re wondering where Lara and I got our “jeggings”, we picked them up at Maurices for $29.  Hard to find a $29 pair of jeans these days!

Thanks Lara!
