Great Jeans And My Ruby Red Slippers



I found the best jeans at Target the other day. OK, well best for me, that is. I am surely the very last female alive who does not own fancy pants designer jeans. Actually, I don't really love jeans. Did I hear you gasp loudly? I know, I am so odd. I just don't think they look very good on me. And they are never really all that comfortable on me. I rarely feel "sexy" but I promise you it has never happened while wearing denim of any sort. I do wear jeans though. 24/7 in the winter months. I'd love to say I wear cute skirts and tights, but I live in the North Pole. Winter is less about fashion and more about survival. Jeans and .....wait for it.....wait for it....Uggs. Gasp, gasp! Ugly? Yes. Necessary? OMG yes!!

So anyhoo...I found the most comfortable jeans at Tar-jay. Now if you are in the majority who are looking all hot mama in your fabulously fancy designer jeans, this post is not really going to be your cup of tea. But if you look at soccer moms in the grocery store and think, damn where did you get those soccer-mom-carpool-lane-will-fit-my-ever-expanding-body jeans, here you go! They are the stretchiest jeans ever. Like they are good for the fat days and skinny days (which are few and far between but a girl can dream, right?) and then the OMG-I-can't-fit-through-the-door-and-need-to-be-crane-lifted-out days. Don't lie, you know you've had a few of those days before (Black Friday perhaps?). The tag reads "No-Gap Waistband." Which is less of a bonus for me as my body is pretty straight. I don't really have a very defined waist. But I have a lot of friends who have a very small waist and larger hips. I'm sure these jeans are calling your name. They are mid-rise. Love that. I mean, I don't want pants up to my boobs but I don't want them below my panty line either. I love the waistband. The No-Gap Waistband. It's lined so it is soft and doesn't cut into me when I am sitting. And the ultra stretchy jeans are so soft. Target is in no way rewarding me for shouting the praises of this pair of pants (anyone ever wonder why we call a single pant a pair?). But I know I am not alone in the quest for perfect jeans. And while I would not call these jeans perfect as I am certain I still look like the size 10 that I am and not a size 4 that I fantasize about, they are a gosh darn good pair of pants. And the price is right at only $25.




I wore them today (rolled up because I need to hem them this week) to my meetings with my new favorite fall shoes. Last year I bought these red gems but never wore them. So it was like wearing a brand new pair of shoes today. I will wear them more often though as it is just plain fun on a drippy, dreary day to wear big girl ruby red slippers!

SUPER cute shoes! And I just found a pair of trouser jeans at Target that I love too!

Leah said...

I am shopping for jeans to fit me after having my baby so I will definitely have to check those out!

Thanks for sharing!

AEOT said...

Yea for great jeans! I'm glad you were able to find something you love at SUCH a good price. Those shoes look adorable too!

love them!! I have the worst time finding jeans that make me feel good too! At a whopping 5ft. tall even the "short" legged jeans are too long and since I have to get flared or bootcut make if you hem them then you don't have much left on the bottom. haha. Hope you have a great week! = )

I love those shoes! Oh, and I think that my most expensive jeans come from the Gap, so I am hardly one for expensive jeans too!

adorable! I bought a pair of washed out "black" bootcut jeans at Target a couple weeks ago because I think it's a trendy color and didn't want to break the bank on a pair I may only wear one season. Wore them Friday and love them.

I actually refuse to spend a lot of money on jeans. I just think it is stupid! Cheap jeans and expensive shoes are OK tho! Love your Ruby Reds!!!

Thanks y'all! Oh the shoes were on sale at Marshalls last season. So they were el cheapo too.

Those shoes are amazing!

I love finding a great pair of jeans

My jeans always gap in the back. I hate that. I may go try them on! And I love red shoes!

I love a good jean tip. Thanks!

you're not the only one without fancy designer jeans. I've only got clearance J Crew jeans and some Old Navy jeans.
Love the red ballet flats.

My favourite pair of jeans are from Target. They seem to fit my body better. They suck in my stomach and butt and actually make my butt look kind of nice. They are also the perfect length and have the perfect waist with no gap at the back. They are perfect for me and I wear them all the time
