Ladies, let’s talk about shopping for jeans. I know, some of you might be groaning at the thought of shopping for new jeans after wearing skirts and dresses all summer, but I’ve got good news. Last weekend I discovered flattering, comfortable and affordable jeans. I think Banana Republic Outlet should start sponsoring my posts (the don’t, just to be clear) with the number of times I talk about clothes I’ve purchased there, and these jeans are no exception.

I’ve never been a huge fan of Banana Republic denim, but the Premium Denim Skinny Jeans at the BR Outlet are my new favorite find. They’re flattering for us women with athletic thighs and aren’t too skinny at the bottom. But the best part is that they only set me back about $40. Crazy, right? Finding good jeans for under $50 counts as a major deal in my book.

Another great find this past weekend came from Target. Since the nearest Target is now an hour away from our house (a great thing for my bank account) I don’t get there often. Browsing the clothing section last week was like Christmas morning. I had my eye on a similar style top from J. Crew a few weeks back, so when I found this similar version at Target for $20, I couldn’t resist.

      Thank you! It’s hard to find a great pair of skinny jeans that are actually flattering, isn’t it? Thankfully, these are just (barely) long enough for my 5’9″ frame.

      Thanks, Lauren! I feel like I need to adjust to wearing different colors with my dark hair vs. my blonde hair. šŸ™‚

    You may have just convinced me with the line about “athletic thighs.” I definitely have those, which makes skinny jean shopping challenging!! You look darling. I love the whole look.

    Cute outfit. he jeans fit you like my Santana skinny jeans fit me. Until I lost 57 lbs, I never owned a pair of skinny jeans. Now it feels soooo good to put them on and go out of the house looking sharp and stylish. Not that I look as cute as you do in them, given that I am old enough to be your mother. šŸ™‚
