For the Love of Jeans

I have a confession to make; I’m not a big fan of jeans. There, I said it, whew… My thing is that often times I feel jeans are too casual or bummy and as I age, I tend to think that they’re fashioned with the younger generation in mind. Having said that, I have to admit that I’m loving the skinny jean trend!

At first I shied away from them thinking that only skinny girls could wear them, as the name would suggest. But as I searched high and low, I quickly realized how many “skinny” jeans there are to choose from. I’ve found some great styles that complement different body types and ages. I’m happy to report that I now have several pairs I wear over and over, this being one of them.

I typically reserve jeans for casual affairs, like this afternoon when I met my girlfriend for lunch. Pairing jeans with a blazer always works wonders and adding pearls to the mix completes the look with a touch of elegance.

Since I’m not a tall girl, a mere 5’4″, I don’ like to wear my skinnies with flats because they seem to shrink me even more. Instead, I opt for wearing heels, I get the height I want and an overall slimmer appearance. Besides, what girl doesn’t love the sexiness stilettos bestow anyway. Yup, even in the snow I wear mine…

So, how did I do? Sorority girl or powerhouse mom? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I totally love this look! I felt the same way about skinny jeans, I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one thinking it would look good on just skinny girls. BTW, you don’t look short at all, I guess the heels help, lol! Great article!
