Today will go down as one of the most traumatic days of my life…

…because I went shopping for skinny jeans.  I’m not really sure what I was thinking.  There is nothing skinny about the bottom half of my body.  I just keep having this vision of being able to wear skinny jeans with some really cute boots.  All I know is that I took 9 pairs of jeans into the dressing room and when I couldn’t pull the first pair past my knees I knew I was in trouble. ;)

I did end up finding one pair that looked decent.  I am going to have the waist taken in (I had to buy a bigger size in order to fit my thunder thighs) but since they were on clearance for $6.24 I decided to give it a try.

After that traumatic experience I headed over to the shoe department and was immediately cheered up when I tried on these and these…and thanks to the kindness and generosity of my bible study leaders who gave me a gift card as a thank you gift…I bought them both!

And now to find the cute boots to go with my skinny jeans…

  1. This is going to sound very strange, but my sister bought me a pair of skinny jeans today, and I also got the same shoes that you did in red, but in black…and they are sooo comfy! I’m sure you look great in them Jenn! I’m still not sure I can pull off the skinny jeans look, but I have some boots that I want to wear with jeans that need to be the skinny type.

  2. I’m so glad you found a pair of jeans! Shopping is not one of my favorite sports – I often feel defeated. I have the most trouble with blouses cuz the twins don’t rest well in the really cute tops. I know, get a better bra, but that’s a whole other experience. It’s no wonder why we women love shoes so much. We can always find at least one (or two) pair that make it all better :) I love those red maryjanes – they are so you!

  3. I had a similar experience last week. I bought some boots, but needed skinny jeans to wear with them. So, I went to the store, but since I had the kids with me, I didn’t want to try them on because well…you know why! So I bought a cute pair that are my normal size and brand that I normally get except for skinny style instead of boot cut. So, I go to put the on a couple of days later, and oh my goodness…SO. NOt. GoiNG. TO. HAPPEN!!! I’m thinking the boot/skinny jeans look just isn’t for me!! LOL:)
