Last year, I had to go out and buy new jeans for the best possible reason – I had lost some weight. My favorite jeans were fitting poorly and I was tired of looking like a Backstreet Boy so I bit the bullet and went out to buy what I thought were a cheap, throw away pair of jeans from Old Navy. (At this point if you’ve bought Old Navy jeans you’re thinking…”Ha, Oh young, naive Elizabeth. You’re so young and beautiful.”)
Forgive me, as I can’t remember how much they cost – maybe $30? No more than that, for sure as I had some Old Navy cash on hand. But I will say that whatever the cost? TOTALLY WORTH IT.
You guys, these things are amazing! They’re so comfortable, and form fitting. And did I mention comfortable? Like I can sit criss-cross apple sauce and they don’t get baggy; I can bend down ask my kid why he’s crying and they don’t show off my underwear. I can wear them with sneakers, wear them with heels and I can’t stop looking fabulous.
The unfinished hem is my favorite part because it shines a trendy light on whatever shoe I’m wearing, and they’re light weight enough to wear throughout the day without getting hot.
Oh and the dark wash is perfect because it’s dark enough to go with everything that I usually wear with black but not so dark that it makes me look too dressy.
They are, the perfect jeans.
The pair I’m wearing is their Rockstar Mid-Rise size 6. An 8 was really comfortable but a 4 was too tight so just try on one size up from what you would normally grab and see what you think. If you can buy jeans straight from a website – you are my hero.
Also, (and I just discovered this while searching out the link for you) they have never fade black jeans!!!!! YOU GUYS that’s what I NEED. (hopefully my husband won’t read this or come to the awareness that I own over 10 pairs of black pants) I NEEEED THEM.
Also, also, shout out to the Old Navy employee who saw me looking at the jeans and encouraged me to buy them. In-store feedback like that is sooooo great.
