Can we all agree that skinny jeans are the worst? And by the worst, I mean the best. How is that even possible? Oh, skinny jeans, how you confound me!
These thoughts went through my mind while putting on a pair of skinny jeans this morning. The jeans in question had just come out of the dryer, which was basically my first problem. Squeezing into a pair of freshly washed skinny jeans is a certain recipe for low self esteem.
These jeans barely buttoned. I’m pretty sure I had a muffin top, and lord knows I had to CTC. BUT THEY FIT YESTERDAY! Yet I still wore them because skinny jeans are amazing. My butt always looks good, so do my legs.
But why are they so painful?! Even when skinny jeans that fit perfectly are a pain to get on and an even bigger pain to get off. Both activities involved jumping around the room, often tripping along the way.
One of my biggest resentments about skinny jeans is that they are basically the only pants except leggings that look good with mid-calf boots. What gives, other pants styles? Skinny jeans fit perfectly into boots, no bunchy, no rolling. They are perfection. Yet they are also terrible for all the reasons I mentioned above.
So as we enter into fall, yes, OK, I am wearing skinny jeans. But only begrudgingly.
