Check Me Out: In My New Jeans

This post brought to you by Express. All opinions are 100% mine.

I apologize for the lame title. But if you knew what I originally wanted to title it (Check Me Out: My Bootie Expresses Itself Again), you’d thank me.

 Express jeans sent me a gift certificate for me to try out some of their denim. When I first I walked into the women’s jeans section, I was a bit worried, because all I saw were boot cut. And while I know boot cut jeans are definitely creeping back into style, my brain refuses to embrace them just yet. The late 90s’ corpse is sometimes a little too warm for my taste. Plus I’d probably pledge my firstborn to whomever invented skinny jeans.

I’ll come around.

So when I laid eyes on these faded grey denim masterpieces, I went straight for the fitting room. They were a bit snug (they’d sold out of my size), but I loved them so much, I couldn’t stand to leave them to a less deserving butt. The salesgirl told me they’d break in.

I love the color of the denim, but the best part is the ankle detail, whose snaps allow me my baby steps to boot cut! Perfecto.
