#20. Skinny jeans

I had always assumed that because I’m nearing my mid-30’s, skinny jeans were a no-no. But then I realized that not all skinny jeans are the same. I found two different pairs of Levi’s, and I adore them both! One is a true skinny jean with a mid- to high-rise waist, and the other pair is a curvy skinny jean. The latter pair is super comfortable, because it offers some more room in the areas I need it: thighs and rump, especially.

Verdict: I’ll continue wearing skinny jeans. They are comfy. I think they look relaxed and casual, yet stylish. Pretty much just the look I’m aiming for.
