The Skinny

I have crossed to the dark side. I purchased a pair of skinny jeans (which is kind of an oxymoron since I had to buy size 11 to acutally fit into any of the 'skinny' jeans). I never thought I would end up with a pair of these pants, but it had to be done. You see I bought a pair of sweater knit boots that MUST be worn over pants. Therefore, I had to buy some pants that would fit inside the boots. The result: Skinny Jeans.
I actually really like how they fit, but I can't bring myself to take the tags off just yet. I can just hear Trent making fun of me already. He hates skinny jeans. Really hates them. I do have to say that they aren't the 'painted on' skinny, which makes them a little less appalling. So tell me what you think. Should I be brave, remove the tags, and strut my size 11 legs in the skinny...or just take them back to Ross and buy a serving dish or something.

Oh man. I don't know what to say. I myself having no style sense. I'm one step away from wearing white socks and tevas. That said. If you have the boots you need the jeans. So I think you should wear them. and post a picture with the boots.

I think they are darling...I haven't yet crossed the chasm but I'm pregnant so that is my excuse. I think they will be perfect with your boots...go for it girl!

Alyssa said...

Ha! I knew you would give in one day! And you do need them for boots... You better take the tags off of them you look great... tell Trent to get with the times and go buy a pair of bug sunglasses while you are at it!! ;)

Keep them. I have always disliked them but I did the same thing with the boots. So I will most likely be buying a pair of my own skinny jeans soon. You rock those jeans sister. Wear them a lot if Trent gives you grief just to bug him. Yeah stick it to the man! Jk

Trent said...

The thing you can always count on with girls is that they are not going to tell you what they really think. Throwing this question out there is like asking someone you invite over to your house for dinner if they like what you cooked....What can anyone say. If I ever hear it from you for wanting some comfortable running shorts I will loose it. Skinny jeans are excentuate everything women wish they didn't have even the women that really are skinny. I've never seen a single person that looked flattering in them. Some are just less appalling. What is this mid life crisis you are going through?

Trent said...

I'm going to buy a pair of low rise painted on pants and every time you wear your pants I will wear mine. Anyone have an AC\DC shirt I can borrow?

Amber said...

haha laughing at Trent right now...I kind of agree...that being said, I actually think they don't look that bad...I want to see them with the boots though. And for those being 11's...looks good to me! I guess I've just seen SO MANY people trying to be "in style" looks bad...looks real, real bad! Maybe I would try a pair if I were a size zero...hmmmm, where was I? I need to see a full body shot...with the boots!

KEEP THEM!! They are so cute. It's funny because I did the same thing when I got my first pair. Now that is pretty much all I wear. They look darling on you!! Really!!!

I hope you love me as much as you love Trent for the comment I am about to leave. If I put my hand over your knees and and ankles they are quite cute. The whole combination however???? I'm not a fan. Sorry, please don't take it personally, it isn't you it's the pants. Maybe over time I will become a fan like I did with Capri's but for now I have nothing good to say about the knee's down. Knee's and above... adorable.

Trent said...

Thank you Melissa for being one of the only honest people.

The Shumway's said...

Well to give you an thoroughly honest opinion I would have to see your tushie! But for that angle holy crap you legs look TINY!!! Those don't look even close to size 11 legs...more like size 4. Dead serious! Put your boots on and then give me a rear view...then we'll see the whole picture!

Mandi McQuivey said...

I need you to post a picture with the boots and pants together for me to make a ligit comment. I for one LOVE skinny jeans. . . I had no idea how people felt. I think they are very cute.

Hmm. . .It is not the first time I have annoyed Trent!:)

The Capson's said...

I think they are cute! I must say I own a pair as well. I am so afraid to wear them without boots on the outside...but they are they only pants that will fit inside cute boots. I swore I would NEVER wear a pair of skinny jeans when they first came out...but stuffing my boot cut jeans in my boots didn't make much sense. The boot cut was intended to go over the boot...so I HAD to buy a pair of skinny jeans. Plus, Amy you look so cute in ANYTHING you wear.

linds said...

trent, doug has some of those jeans you are talking about and the acdc shirt. he still rocks that look, didnt you catch his iron maiden jacket the other night? amy, the jeans are cute. if you like them, wear them. i have a couple of pairs in storage somewhere. doug ALWAYS makes fun of me in them...oh well.

Annie said...

Trent really DOES hate the skinny jeans. I don't love the painted on ones either (though I must admit I have a pair and every time I wear them I wonder why I bought them - they're so uncomfortable!) but I like the sleek look of a straight leg and they're so much easier to tuck into jeans (the other pair of boots you've shown us on here would look really cute with the skinnys too). I think the pair you found is really cute and not over the edge at all. Sorry Trent.

Annie said...

meant to tuck into boots - not jeans - duh.

Jamie N said...

All I have to say, is once you tuck your skinny jeans into your boots, you'll never look back - no matter what Trent says. Skinny jeans with sweater boot? Genius.

PS - Where did you get your boots this year? I have mine from last year, but I'm due for another, warmer pair.

Kim said...

I think they are cute and look very slimming on you. WHo cares if they're an 11. I vote to keep them.

Julie said...

You really have perfect legs for them. Yes, keep them. What does Trent think of them on you? Has he changed his mind on skinny jeans now?
