A Jean-ius Discovery.

I’ve been having a bit of a frustration with my wardrobe lately.  A closet full of clothes, never anything to wear.  I wear the same thing every day – skinny jeans, a striped tee, a statement necklace, and ballet flats or knee high boots.  It’s a good recipe, but too much of even the best things can be, well, too much.

I decided that it was time for a new pair of jeans. And so, we went to the 7 for All Mankind store. 

I tried on 10, maybe 15 pairs, while the boyfriend sat, patiently, providing feedback and assessing how my derriere looked in each pair.  (I know – the man should be sainted.  BUT, he did volunteer to come along for the mission.)

I tried them all – skinny, flared, boot cut, (even the super flared high-waisted ones, just for fun.)

And we made a discovery.  A HUGE discovery.  Flares and boot-cuts just look better.  So much more flattering.  It probably should have seemed intuitive, but I’ve been wearing skinnies for so long now that I forgot how much better my legs look in a flared or boot cut jean.

Meet my new jeans.  They are amazing.  Super leg-lengthening, super flattering.  You can grab a pair here – I highly recommend them.  (And so does the boyfriend)
