Skinny... Or at least the jeans are

I've never actually owned a pair of skinny jeans up until now. I guess I always struggled with the idea of clothes looking like they were spray painted on the body. (I know most skinny jeans aren't that bad, but I tend to exaggerate sometimes) But after pregnancy and two and a half months of just wearing nightgowns and sweats I had enough... I had to know that I still had at least some shape. 

So my quest began. I shopped, and shopped and shopped. Until I was ready to give up and cry. I had to find a pair because I had a baby shower to attend and I didn’t want my friend to be depressed thinking that there was no beauty after baby. The trick was that I needed skinny jeans with an elastic waist. My legs were looking fab, but I was still rocking a major baby belly. I’d get the jeans on and then they wouldn’t zip. Finally, I found my jeans at an unlikely place, Walmart. My friend was actually registered there for her baby shower, so I had decided to just go and buy her gift, but while I was there I walked through the clothes. There they were, pair of skinny jeans that fit just right. It wasn’t really an elastic waist, but it didn’t zip so it worked.

Sometimes I second guess myself and feel like I have to buy clothes from expensive stores to be fashionable. But after looking all around I found my magical pair of skinny jeans at Walmart!


  1. Sometimes I find the best clothing finds at Wal-Mart! It's hit and miss, but on occasion they have the cutest clothes at an awesome price!!! You look great in your skinny jeans by the way! ;)

  2. Kassi,
    Thanks for the complement. I realized that I have been wearing my skinny jeans everyday. I think I might check Walmart to see if they have similar pants that I could wear to work.

  3. I dont mind getting jeans from any store I can find them to fit me. You look awsome in yours. Its been 21 years since I had a baby and Im still trying to get rid of baby fat. LOL. and Theresa is darling! Have a wonderful week and come visit me sometime!

  4. Thank you so much Lisa! Now I just have to fix my eating habits... being pregnant and nursing I eat a lot. But I know I'll eventually quit nursing and have to go back to eating a normal amount :)
