Well hello and Merry Christmas Eve Eve. I hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend and that you've finished up your Christmas shopping. If you have not, have no fear. Retailers are expecting you'll visit them tomorrow and truth be told, they'll all be ecstatic to see you!
This shopper has been searching all season for the perfect skinny jean. What makes the perfect skinny jean? I will tell you. For me, it's all about the wash. I was particularly looking for a dark wash denim. I wanted something that had little to no distressing (holes or tears). I didn't need an amazing pocket. I just wanted a pocket that made my butt look nice. And lastly, they needed to be a length that allowed me to wear the jean with a flat, a heel, and obviously tucked into a boot.
Well, the jean genie listened and my wish was granted. If you know nothing about denim, let me tell you about a brand that has changed my life (and this is by no means a plug ... promise). Silvers brand denim is an amazing quality of premium denim that offers selections that truly fit every body style. I am lucky enough to work for a retailer that carries them. I refuse to purchase denim without actually trying it on first. In fact, it's a major pet-peeve of mine when people buy denim for other people. That is ludicrous. So, once again, my wardrobe is blessed (as you may have figured out) and it just so happens that one adorable pair of Silver jeggings made their way into my store (and my life). It was truly love at first sight and as soon as I put them on, I knew it was meant to be. So there you have it. The story of the world's most wonderful skinny jean and my inspiration for this colorful outfit. There will be many more outfits featuring these jeggings; don't you worry.
Btw, the last two pictures are obviously taken directly from a website. No, that is not my butt but I can promise you that your butt can look that good in these jeggings.
Until then, happy hunting!
