Skinny jeans

A few weeks ago I bought my first pair of skinny jeans. I think it was me trying to play a mind game with myself... if my postpartum body can fit into a pair of skinny jeans, then I must be skinny, right? Sure. As long as I have on my Bridget Jones stomach-holding-in-panties. Shhhh--don't tell!

Then there came the dilemma of what to wear with these trendy little numbers. It's taking a while, but I think I'm sort of getting the hang of it.

On the bottom of every one--Old Navy skinny jeans
Top--Old Navy knit tunic

Top--Old Navy nursing top with a tank hidden underneath
Shoes--Off Broadway = off brand
Accessories--none again. I've got to get better at this...

Top--Target nursing tank
Cardigan--Banana Republic
Shoes--Target flats again
Necklace--Lisa Leonard Designs (one thing at a time)

I am so proud to report that I made it out of my yoga pants uniform four days last week. So far, that's a personal best. Try and hold your applause. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to go clean my full length mirror!

If you like seeing what other people wear as much as I do, hop on over to The Pleated Poppy to check out some cute and fabulous fashions.

Hooray for skinny jeans!! And for stepping out of your fashion comfort zone. You look great!

Love the ruffle neck long tunic (purple?) and your Target flats. Can we ever have too many cute ballet flats? I think not.

You don't know me, I'm a pleated poppy fan, and I don't normally make comments and am too chicken to do WIWW, but I have to say it since no one else did. You definately look great in the third pic., but you look adorable in pic. #1! My fav. But then again...who am I? LOL

Okay, I am not a skinny jean fan (on anyone), but you look FANTASTIC! Maybe I should go put the cookie back in the cookie jar and jump on the bike trainer. LOL
