I've been loving the mint, cropped, skinny jeans I've seen girls wearing the last two summers. So cute and fresh!
So while in Target yesterday, I tried on a pair.
And well...things did not go well.
Let me first describe my body shape. I have an abnormally big head and long chimpanzee arms. My waist and bust are large and in charge. My booty is similar to that of a 3rd grader- flat and barely there. And my legs are long and very thin and shapely (my best feature). They look like ballerina legs.
I'm built like a bobble head. It's a wonder I can stand upright!
So as long as I am careful to wear a top that fits properly (read: is long enough to balance things out), skinny jeans really work well for me a lot of the time.
But these jeans (I couldn't find the exact pair online- they were solid- not polka dot) b a r e l y made it up and then off of me. They were decidedly not skinny jeans. These suckers were anorexic jeans!
I don't know who is supposed to fit into them. They were not juniors either. And the waist fit fine. But when something is tight on my skinny legs, they are not going to fit normal American made legs for sure!
So my quest for cute mint skinny jeans continues....
Any tips? Have you seen a cute (and inexpensive because I am never willing to pay much for what I consider to be a trend...and mint green jeans are most certainly a trend and not a classic) pair lately? Please share!
