On why I like skinny jeans

I am, in general, a fairly slim, in shape person. One reason you can tell I am a runner is from my muscular calves and thighs. I do NOT have stick legs, like may girls. So when skinny jeans first became popular again, I was skeptical about how they would look on me.

I have to say that the right pairs (i.e. the ones that fit perfectly) actually make me feel, well, skinny. And feeling skinny is always a good thing.

More than looking skinny, you just look hot! Absolutely gorgeous. Love these jeans on you!

Super cute! Love the cardigan and the jeans. It took me awhile to be comfortable in a skinny jean, but now I have 3 pairs.

I agree, I never thought I could look good in skinny jeans, and now I wear them all the time.

Those do indeed look fabulous, I love your monochrome outfit!

DAMN. They make you look miles long. And I canNOT get over how much I love this color palette!

I do not own any skinny jeans. I'm also a runner. I've tried on skinny jeans at 3-5 different stores (I forget the exact number) and I can never get the jeans over my calves. Where have you found that sells good ones.
