So, the skinny trend in jeans is still in and I have yet to jump on the bandwagon. When it first started, the whole trend just turned me off completely. Maybe because I was pregnant at the time and the thought of wearing anything “skinny” was just not in my realm of reality. And pregnant or not, the idea of tight, skinny jeans just seems like it would be super constricting and uncomfortable. Now, I know jean technology (if I can call it that) has come a long way and the jeans we wear today are not your grandfather’s overalls. With the use of more materials that provide stretch and give, jeans today can be soft and quite flexible. But regardless, I still haven’t been able to bring myself to partake in this trend. If you know of a skinny pair of jeans that I should try out, by all means, let me know because I’m willing to at least try them on. However, in the meantime I’ve settled on a compromise so I can in some way take part in the skinny phenomenon. With the recent purchase of a couple of pairs of leggings I’m now strutting my stuff, er, I mean, my skinny. This clothing item has been in and out over the years but along with skinny jeans, leggings seem to be “in” right now as well. And as a new mom, I’m all about cultivating a cute and on trend wardrobe that is still comfortable and doesn’t require dry cleaning. So a few weeks ago I found a great deal on leggings online at Old Navy. For just $14.50, I purchased a package of two pairs of leggings, one black and one charcoal gray. So far I’ve worn both pairs a few times and I love them. With long knit shirts or oversize cardigans they look great and are super comfortable – especially when I’m crawling around on the floor playing with my 7-month-old son. They are full-length, fitting to my ankle and the quality of the fabric seems to be pretty decent. To check them out for yourself, visit the Old Navy web site.
So go on, and get your skinny on!
