For some time now I have been wanting to branch out and get some skinny jeans. My usual jeans are either widelegs (like dark trousers) or bootcuts. In high school I usually always bought bootcuts from the Gap. And then in college I started wearing some American Eagle and Levi's. And then in the last few years I have primarily found jeans I like at Banana Republic or The Limited.
And I haven't actually gone jean shopping in several many months, because we all know that jean shopping can be almost more painful than bathing suit shopping. (Or maybe I am the only one who feels this way, because 1. I spend a lot more time in jeans than I ever do in a swimming suit and 2. I usually don't subject myself to bathing suit shopping in stores and just buy several different ones online and shop from the luxury of my home and try on in the lovely lighting on my own home with my own non-fat-making mirror.)
But I digress.
I currently have several pair of jeans that work for me, but I have soooo many pair of boots (because boots are my favorite kind of shoe (because I am cold all of the time)) that I think I would really like to go ahead and try the tucking-in trend. But widelegs do not tuck in well, so I'm going to have to purchase a pair of skinnies, or matchsticks, or jeggings.
I no longer have the body or legs of a 16 year old, so I'm going to need something that works for that. And honestly, I haven't even see these "jeggings" in stores so its not like I can run out and grab a pair. But maybe I haven't looked in the right store.
Any tips for you to help a girl out? Is there a brand of skinnies (or matchsticks or jeggings) that has worked for you?
