So about a month ago I went on a marathon shopping trip to try and find some new jeans (since I only had 1 pair that fit after giving birth to my daughter 6 months ago). Unfortunately, for me and for everyone else, we went out as a family the first day. So me, my hubby, and our 3 girls (4 yr. old, 2 yr. old, & 6 mos. old) all packed up in the mini-van and hit the stores.
We checked Kohl's first (no luck) then headed over to the mall. In the mall we started with Macy's (I think we were in this store the longest) and then quickly went thru Sears & JcPenney. Throughout this time the kids moods were steadily declining.... they started complaining of being hot, hungry, bored, tired! So actually making it through 4 stores with 3 kids was an accomplishment in itself, the fact that I didn't find anything that fit right was a disaster.
I guess I should back up slightly to explain my problem with jeans. I'm a small person- average height & thin. My waist is tiny- small enough to fit junior sizes but my thighs need more room than most junior fit jeans allow for. So if the jeans fit in the waist they are usually too tight in the thigh, and if they fit in the thigh then the waist is too big. By the end of the day of shopping, I was exhausted and almost beginning to think I was going to have to make a compromise and settle for either too tight in the thigh or wear a belt!
Well the next day, my sister had come into town, and I decided to try my luck again. But this time just her and I went out shopping while my
We started with Younkers where I found a good prospect, but wasn't completely happy with how they fit... and they cost about $75 (ouch)! So I left without buying them and we continued on with the search. We came to a store called Maurices and we almost didn't go in. I said, 'I probably won't find anything in there', but we decided we should give it a shot anyway. Well, lo and behold, right off the bat I found a pair of awesome fitting jeans! They were perfect... and only $29!! I couldn't believe it... it seemed too good to be true! I thought for sure after getting them home they would somehow not fit anymore or that they'd shrink themselves in the wash. But here we are, a month later, and I still LOVE them. They make me feel great when I put them on- you know those fave pair of jeans you have that make your butt look good... well these are mine!!
