{Skinny} Jeans

What a weird name for a pair of pants, right? I mean, I get the concept, they’re form fitting (aka: tiz-ite). For the past 2-3 years I’ve avoided these things like the plague. Fashionable? Probably. My style? Not too sure about that one…¬†That is, until this week.

Thats right friends, I finally caved. I joined the hipsters and jumped on the skinny jean wagon. Actually, can you jump in skinny jeans? I don’t know, I guess I will find out for myself.

And guess what else, I wore my new pants to church today. I actually didn’t let this new piece of clothing hang in the closet and wither out of fashion before I took them for a test run. It was actually pretty daring of me to wear them for the first time on a Sunday. I almost changed like 25 times! I say that because Sunday’s are usually the busiest morning in our house with me trying to get Sarah AND myself ready to go. I usually end up wearing jeans, flipflops, and a nice’ish shirt. Today I decided to step it up a notch. I even wore boots! I haven’t worn boots since before I was pregnant with Sarah! All this to say, I stepped out of my fashion-comfort zone and it had positive results. I felt extra good when I got a few compliments at church. Mostly from the youth, so I guess you could say I looked pretty hip. (Stephen would insert an age joke here. Probably something about joining AARP and getting my hip replaced. Or asking if I just time-traveled from the 60’s since I used the word hip in a sentence).

The best part about this new fashion journey, I scored the pair of leg warming denim for $5.99! I love impromptu shopping trips with my mom. I never would have tried the pants on if she hadn’t pushed me. Thanks mom :)

I suppose to end this I should share a picture. I was actually going to say ‘you didn’t really think I’d share a photo of myself, did you?’, but to feel better about it I am starting with a shot of our oh-my-gosh-she’s-getting-so-big daughter (she was short on camera smiles today. the poor girl is teething and it’s so sad seeing her in pain).

When did she get longer than my torso?! Gracious alive she has grown so fast!

This is probably one of the only pictures I’ve taken with just me in it since my prego weekly-belly update series.

They’re a little stretched out from a day of wear, but I like em!

Extra Bonus: The hubby likes them too. One of his love languages is words of¬†affirmation, and I couldn’t be more thankful for his compliments :)

    Welcome aboard! :) Funny, Courtney just bought her first pair too (after swearing she’d never wear them)You look great by the way… skinnier than me and I’ve never had a baby! Jealous!!

  5. OH MY HOT MAMA ALERT!!! GIrl you look FAB!!!!! :) Did you even have a baby? Thanks for the motivation to step it up a notch! Seriously, you look GREAT in those skinny jeans, and are glowing! I love seeing you and that little one together. Welcome to the hipster club!

    • I’m totally beaming AND blushing right now :) I miss you SO SO much!
      (and thanks for saying hipster, we are two of a kind) ;)

  6. HA! Being hip hasn’t been hip since before hip-hop… Since hippies wore hip-huggers.. Since Jim Carey was crawling out of a hippopotamuses butt…

    So you’re a hipster now? HAHA… Well, truly, I guess that ain’t so bad… It’s when DUDES are wearing skinny jeans that it’s justifiable to point and laugh…

    And PS, if Ringl’s love language is words of affirmation, doesn’t that mean you you should be saying those words to HIM, not the other way around?

    • Oh Jim Carrey… there’s always a joke to be made from his hilarious doings.
      Love languages go both ways, how you receive and how you give. They aren’t the same for everyone with how they go both ways.

  7. You look GREAT!!!!! I am not doing any kind of jumping into skinny jeans…would be more like SQUEEZING into them! :)

    • Oh girl, there was definitely some squeezing into them, haha. My trick: jeans line dry, the dryer isn’t seeing these suckers or they may never fit again!

    Yay! Love me some skinny jeans! (Though I love ’em better on you.) :) You look awesome!

    • I can’t wait for some baby-fun hangouts. We should have a clothes swap… well, if your closet wasn’t in Colorado. We can just plan ahead: 2013 Clothes Swap: When the McKenzies move to town!
