peach jeans & a cardigan

I am a petite person.
I am an apple shaped woman. 
EVERY. single.time I buy jeans or pants I look for the short length, in addition to other criteria that's not that important right now for storytelling sake.

In fact, some short length jeans measuring at 29inches inseam (did i use that term correctly? I obviously don't sew, but want to learn!) are sometimes a smidge too long for me lol. 

Want to know something I've been doing lately? When I am out in public with James, 6'1 (my friend-partner-in-crime-becoming-famous-on-the-blog) I whisper to him when I see a very petite person, on-the-border of being a little person, I ask, "is that how i would look if i could stand?" lol. 

Anyways, I just did a double whammy last week and bought my first pair of skinny jeans. Found these babies at Jcpenny's for 12 buckaroos AND they are my first pair of colored jeans, EVER! One of the major reasons why I even have been wanting skinnies is to fit in better when i wear my slipper boots because i can't wear shoes and i want to show off the tops of the boots.

here's what i wore (wiw) one day recently:
cardi: target/ shirt:some store in the mall/ undershirt:downeast basics/ earrings: f21/pants: jcp

i was inside so i didnt have my boots. fun times.
Do you have any colored jeans? What color are they? I am considering a mint color too? Or maybe even red!

I will leave you with something to smile about.

Wow, that is a big giveaway! And those jeans are really cute. Love the whole outfit. Oh, and yes, "inseam" is from the crotch to the bottom inside of the leg. I like when short sizes are 27" inseam- those work best for me!

I absolutely love those jeans!! They look so good on you. Sadly, I've been too afraid to try skinny jeans, in any color, lol.

Hope you have a great weekend, xo!
