Tell me about your...

Skinny Jeans.

I have one pair of skinny jeans that are just for this purpose:

(By the way, half of my family hates these boots, the other half loves them. What do you think).

Anyway, so I like to wear skinny jeans with boots - Uggs, and other casual boots. But the problem is that I have only one pair of skinny jeans. Well, that's not really the problem. The real problem is that this one pair is a pre-Brayden pair. Also a pre-infertility drug weight pair. AKA, when I was thin. So, I was able to squeeze into them, but they aren't what I'd consider to be overly flattering.

My new skinny jeans need to be:

- Dark Wash
- Mid Rise (no more low rise for this momma)
- Not too expensive. I'll splurge on jeans I wear everyday but not on jeans that I only wear occasionally.

So tell me about your favorite skinny jeans...oh and if you love or hate my boots.

I so need this answer too! I can only find them in Juniors and always low rise! I LOVE the boots. I'm becoming a huge boot fan this winter.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my J-Brand skinny jeans, especially the curvy fit. They are so comfortable and the perfect rise (not too low but not your average "mom" jean". Joes Jeans also has some that I love. And your boots? Really fun.

Jennifer said...

Target is where I get my skinny jeans!They are usually anywhere for $15-23. I love mine!

Leah said...

I am the same way with skinny jeans. I'll pay for designer jeans I'll wear all the time but definitely not for jeans that can only be worn with boots. Or well, that I will only wear with boots. No flats and skinny jeans for me haha. I actually, of all places, found my pair at Forever 21. They are dark wash and really stretchy and comfy and were only $30 or $40!!

Kayla said...

Try wal-mart. I think I saw some there the other day!

Btw..love the boots!

Lori said...

Hi! Are these replacement boots for the Cole Hann Air Petra Trail Boots tried to get you for Christmas?! If not or if so, I like them! :)
Love, MIL

Faith said...

I got some cute ones at Kohl's and Rue 21. They both have brands that are long for tall people! :) I think they also have some at Maurice's, but they are a little more expensive. I love your boots!

Dani said...

I love the boots. I need to get a pair of skinny jeans, for that exact same reason! (I hate them otherwise!)

6HartsforHim said...

I got some skinny jeans from jcpenny,for fourteen dollars.Can't beat the price,and I like the fit.Considering where I live I wear boots and skinny jeans all winter! ;)Cute boots!

Meg said...

I love your boots, they are adorable--I don't do skinny jeans so I don't have any help for you in that area. I have too big of a butt and too big of hips to look cute in skinny jeans, but you go girl!

The Lewis's said...

I just got a new pair at Express. I love love love them! I also love the boots! :)

Tris-star said...

The boots are fabulous! I just got a pair of distressed skinny jeans at old navy for 19 bucks. I've never been into the distressed look, but these aren't too distressed, you know? They're not low rise, which is great (they cover my muffin top!).
Good luck!

I have some dark Citizens skinny jeans that I love and wear to death. I got them at Nordstrom's Rack so they weren't too, too expensive. I like your boots but am not real crazy about lug soles/heels.

Patricia said...

I know you said you don't want to splurge on skinny jeans BUT Hudson Skinny Jeans from Nordstrom are the absolute best. I was learly to get into the fad of skinny jeans and boots because I'm 31 with three kids one being six months. These jeans do wonders to my 5'3 15 pound overweight body :)I also love Steve Madden Cybul and Tyller boots from Nordstrom. Happy Shopping.

Laura said...

I haven't tried them, but I have heard several people say that Walmart actually has some good dark wash skinny jeans. I need to check them out myself!

Cute boots, by the way!

Deen Family said...

GAP! They have dark wash skinny jeans with a hint of stretch. Only $60...I LOVE MINE!

P.S. I like the boots!

Boni said...

Gap has some skinny jeans that I love! Three kids later, I need mid-rise as well. I only wear them with boots (which I have a gazillion of) and they are awesome!

Also, sorry, but not a fan of the boots...

2sillyboys said...

Lands End has a skinny jean with a higher rise. They sell them at Sears in Fayetteville.

Jennifer said...

I LOVE THE BOOTS!!!

Sarah said...

I really like your boots! I need to find some good ones for myself soon! :)
Have a great weekend! ♥

alexismcdade said...

I have a few pairs of skinny jeans from Rue 21! I LOVE them! Priced anywhere from $20-$30! BUT you have to search for ones that don't have the big holes in them!LOL!

Not a big fan of the boots but only bc of the soles!

also, I know you watch AMC, are you disgusted by the whole ryan/erica thing like I am?? UGH!

Ben and Emily said...

I just purchased my first pair of skinny jeans at Target for less than $20! Cant beat the price and they're really cute and comfy!

Jessica said...

I LOVE the Matchstick jeans from J.Crew. They are so comfortable and the rise is perfect (especially when you are bending down for little ones). I have them in the dark wash and it has really held up well. I originally bought them for wearing with only boots, but they are so fab that I wear them with flats also.

Alicia said...

No skinny jeans for this chubby lady! But if you can wear them...you go girl!

I can't say I love the boots. I'm just not crazy about the heal/sole.

Made your Chili Verde and it was delicious!

Ashley said...

I L*O*V*E those boots!! So I would like to know where they came from!!! Skinny jeans I haven't tried yet for the simple fact that I don't have cute boots to wear with them!!

Deni said...

I love my skinny jeans. I am even a "bigger" girl and I swear they make me look skinner. (I am mostly bigger on top with some muffin top going on in the midsection!) I got mine at Kohl's right before christmas for like 17 bucks, I think they were originally in the 30 or 40 range! I wear them with my snow boots or my black slouchy boots, unfortunately, my "hooker" boots as my hubby calls them, don't fit will with them because they don't stick to my skin.

I like your boots...not for me, but cute none the less.

klmtennis said...

Love Love the boots...I also love skinny jeans. The ones I wear are American Eagle and they are not that pricey. hope that helps.

Maryellen said...

Love the boots. !!!

Queen Bee said...

THANKS for this post! I had read somewhere about the Land's End skinny jeans, but am glad to hear about some more affordable options. If I get the boots I am stalking, then I will get a pair!!!

RN Mama said...

I think your boots are cute! I just bought a new pair of brown boots to wear today with my skinny jeans:)

My skinny jeans are from Old Navy, and I think they were only $29. I didn't want to spend a lot, since I didn't know if I would like them and since I would only wear them with boots. I tried on a nice pair at the limited too, but they were more expensive, around $70.

Oh, and I did just get some cords from the Gap which are called "Super Straight." They are pretty much like skinny jeans. I got them on their winter clearance sale for $12/each!

Ohtobebeautiful said...

Love the boots and I definitely need help with this too!

Hailey said...

I LOVE your boots. Where did you find them?
I have two pair of skinny jeans. Both are from Old Navy and I love them! I didn't want to spend loads on skinny jeans since I don't wear them all of the time. I love my William Rast jeans and I know that make an awesome pair of skinny jeans.

Raven Marie said...

I found that Levi's brand skinny jeans are WONDERFUL! They come in short, regular and LONG and they have 3 different colors (two of them are really dark and I couldn't make up my mind so I bought both). The style number is 524 I believe. Macy's sells them for $29.99. PS: LOVE your boots!!!

jdthreemom said...

Hey Jenna--I have some Rock and Republic's that I love, but even with those, I hate that my jeans don't stay down in my Uggs. I wanted to tell u about stiruppz.com! They sell these stirrups that are GREAT for attaching to any pants to keep them snug in your boots! Check it out. I love them!

Shelly Powers said...

i got mine at Aeropstale and they only 15 dollars and they fit great... i usually only by design jeans, seven, citizen etc but did not want to spend that much money on skinny jeans and I LOVE the way my skinnys fit very compairable to my designer jeans... good luck! :)

Lilly, Matt, and Sara said...

Sounds like you got lots of advice on the skinny jeans which is good because I am petrified of the skinny jeans--I have a booty and am just afraid of how much it would stick out in skinny jeans. I shudder at the thought! Haha. Anyway...I have mixed feelings on the boots. I like the actual style of the boot itself a lot--I am just not crazy about the hikingish-heel. I do think they are cute, though!

Jessica said...

I got mine from Old Navy...I think they were $19...

I am like you, I only like them with boots.

Kendra said...

HAHAHA all my jeans currently are maternity...and you KNOW nothing in that category can be labeled "skinny". =)

Samantha Wrigley said...

I love the boots!
I get my skinny jeans from American Eagle. I have two kids, and my youngest is just a little younger than Brayden. So--I am not yet in my pre-pregnancy jeans either! American Eagle's are stretch, so that helps! Good luck!

Elise said...

I just bought my first pair of skinny jeans from GAP and I love them! I think they are called Always Skinny and were about $79. If you check them out be sure to buy them snug though because they stretch quite a bit!

Shanna said...

Cute boots. The truth is I absolutely hate skinny jeans. They make my hips look wide(r) so when I wear Uggs I wear a special pair of Citizens that I bought off Ebay. I bought them thinking they would be just perfect (exactly what I wanted for way cheaper than what Indigo sells them for). The only problem was I was dumb and didn't check the inseam measurement which would've told me the seller had them altered. So, they are capris on me & it makes them way easier to tuck in my boots without them wading all up. That's my little secret...I'd probably die if I were ever in an accident and they had to take my shoes off and find that I look like an orphan wearing jeans that are too short...ha!

Lauren Kelly said...
