Want to know a secret? I haven’t worn a pair of jeans since before I got pregnant (which was over a year ago), aside from one pair of maternity jeans that I wore less times than I can count on one hand. Maybe I’m being a little dramatic in calling it a secret, but really, it’s kind of odd that something that was once a wardrobe staple for me has become nonexistent in my closet. These days you can usually find me in either a dress or an oversized tee and leggings. (I may have gotten just a little too comfortable in the leggings uniform during the pregnancy, as it’s sort of stuck.) I had a couple of pairs of trusty skinnies that I wore constantly before getting pregnant, but alas, they just don’t fit me the same now that I’ve had a baby. So jean-less I have become.
Now that spring is here, I’m feeling an urge to get back into a good pair. I’m envisioning a soft white tee, layered necklaces, loads of rings on my fingers, a brown floppy hat or grey beanie, some simple strappy sandals, and a great pair of denim jeans. I have it in my head and I’m determined to make it happen. So I’ve set out on a search for the pair that will become my go-to’s. The styles you see above are my favorite finds so far. The cuts, fits, washes are different (as are the price points), but they each have the potential to become my new wardrobe staple pair, perfect for springtime. I’m especially a fan of #1 from True Religion Brand Jeans and #6 from J.Crew. Both are equal parts casual and chic, and perfect for springtime.
Do you have a favorite pair of jeans for spring (or any time of the year)? Which of the pairs above do you think I should get?
