skinny jeans

After months of planning, I finally purchased a proper pair of skinny jeans. Technically, I think they're "jeggings"-- is there a difference? They are very stretchy. My sister, out of her kind kind heart finally purchased them for me because I didn't have time to go to the store.

I resisted because I remember wearing these kinds of pants in the sixth grade. Except, back then they were red and made out of sweat material. I loved them. But unfortunately, up until the ninth grade I wore tapered jeans. I wasn't supposed to be wearing tapered jeans-- they weren't really in style at the time. I thought all the jeans were made the same... so, I'd stand in line at lunch and wonder why I my jeans looked different than everyone else's.

You can imagine my emotional dilemma when skinny jeans made their grand come back (it's been a few years now...).

Anyways, I like them. 


  1. Text me a picture.

  2. I'm proud of you for making the leap back into the fashion of skinny jeans. I have yet to commit. For some reason my skinny just doesn't seem to be as skinny as it once was.

    I like your blog. You remind me of my friend ee who is also emily and who also writes thoughtful things and regularly makes me laugh.

  3. I wear jeggings to class probably every day. I used to be anti skinny jeans, leggings, jeggings, schmeggings.

    And then I tried them.

    And I loved them.

    And I buy lots of calf length garments so I can wear them.

    It's like wearing pajamas to school even when it's not pajama day.

  4. Andrea, you are so lovely! Thank you. And welcome.

  5. oh my gosh emily! i felt the same way buying my first pair!! i thought to myself "last time I wore these, I swore to myself I'd never ever wear them again because there is no way they could ever come back!" and then I bought some and now I wear them every day. never say never.

  6. katie!!! i'm so happy to hear from you! i am SO RELIEVED you feel the same way. skinny jeans are so weird! but never say never. i was thinking i should get another pair because they go with everything.

  7. And now wide-legged pants are coming back in style. ugh.

  8. ...and now i'm all committed to wearing skinny jeans for the next 5 years...shoot.
