My Struggle with Skinnies
What’s the vivid nightmare that causes a fashionista to wake up in a cold sweat night after night? Pre-season uncertainty that makes me toss & turn lies in my yearly struggle with skinny jeans. I have hunted for the majority of a decade for a pair that doesn’t require a personal assistant to remove at the end of the day. Two years ago, I thought I had thrown in the towel. I came to the realization that I’d be forever trapped in boot cuts or the wide leg. I thought I might toss out all my flats because only skinnies look adorable with ballet flats. I made peace with this, and then…colored skinnies appeared. I couldn’t say no this trend. My middle name was practically color block. If there was ever an opportunity to wear more than two colors in one outfit I took it! Colored skinnies were the fulfillment for all my color blocking desires!
Over the summer I hunted diligently for a pair to fit comfortably in all the right places with just the perfect amount of stretch. No luck. Then came a day where I actually wanted to find a neutral bow blouse for a spring lady look (see: Bows Tie Onto Spring) but accidentally found the perfect pair of mint green PW Current Elliot skinnies for the price of $24! Cost per wear so far this season is $2 since I wear them at least twice a week. Battle of me v. skinnies is finally over and I have emerged victorious.
