Two Teens And Their Mama: Not So Skinny Jeans

Not So Skinny Jeans


In theory, I like the idea of skinny jeans.  They tuck into boots better, and look cute with flats and a tunic top.  HOWEVER.  Finding a pair that allows a girl to breathe has been a bit of a challenge.

The search is over.  I tried these Relaxed Skinny Jeans at Loft this weekend, and bought them immediately.  They are the softest jeans I've ever owned, are skinny without being tight, and the fit is so comfortable.  I bought them one size smaller than usual, because the saleslady said they tend to stretch out quite a bit.  And remember my retail rule: do not pay full price!  Loft has sales all.the.time. and I got these for 50% off. Give them a try - you will thank me later.

Skinny jeans are a perfect fall transition piece.  While the weather is still warm, wear them with flats, a tank top, and a cardigan.  When the days turn colder, try boots, a plaid shirt and a vest.
Yay for relaxed skinny jeans.  They almost make packing up the shorts bearable...almost.

  1. They look cute...and comfortable! I have a pair of skinny jeans and they don't allow much breathing room. I always take them off as soon as I get home. These look like you could sit down and enjoy yourself! :)

  6. oh I love Loft Jeans...and yes never pay full price there! Only in a fashion emergency, like going to a wedding the next day and you have nothing to wear. I love the loft curvy fit jeans too, best for those that have a bigger bottom than most :)

  9. I love skinny jeans! I feel weird in anything else. Skinny jeans, boots, some sort of shirt, a peacoat. That's my fall and winter uniform.

  15. I've got some skinny jeans too cause I consider they suit in every occasion. They allow me to breathe but not so much to fold the knee!
