FOUND: THE MOST PERFECT DENIM JEANS
Am I the only one who’s shocked to find we’re already 16 days into November? Honestly, if it wasn’t for the temps here in Boston (which are as happy as ever to remind me just how far into cold-weather season we actually are) I’d refuse to believe it. Yesterday the high was in the twenties – the twenties! Not so surprisingly, most of this week has been dedicated to finding out just how many layers I can pile on before rendering myself completely immobile. The answer? Not enough – although the gigantic sweater does help. Switching out my go-to midis for jeans has also proved helpful. Speaking of which, I have a feeling this AG Adriana Goldschmied pair from Zappos will be in constant rotation over the next few months. While it’s hard to say what I love most about them, the fact that they’re actually leggings might explain things.
I don’t know about you but I’ve tried a lot of different looks-like-denim-feels-like-leggings styles in the past but I’ve always been left somewhat disappointed in the overall look and feel of “jeggings.” Despite hearing great things about this exact style, it wasn’t until after I saw them on a friend of mine (and instantly fell in love with them) that I decided they were worth taking a gamble on.
Probably as close to perfect as you can possibly get, this is the first pair of denim-look leggings I’ve found that actually flatter my body – and, in the same way that more traditionally structured (read, stiffer) jeans do! The real difference? They stretch without stretching out meaning no saggy knees, bellies or bums. Even better yet, the same stretch that somehow manages to support my problem areas (okay, okay, I’m totally talking thighs) actually makes these the most comfortable bottoms I’ve ever owned. The only thing I wish I could change? The length which is just a smidge too long for this shorty. Then again, if I was wishing for things I’d wish for longer legs.
I’d love to know, have you tried AG before and if so, which styles have you tried? Now that I’ve finally found one that works for me, I’m dying to find more – can you tell?
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING
A long time favorite of mine, one of the things I love most about Zappos is it’s incredible selection of brands and designers – AG, S’well, Zac Posen, Alice and Olivia, you can shop ’em all here. If you’re as indecisive as me, you’ll also appreciate the site’s return policy which gives you 365 days to figure out whether or not you really love that new dress. The cherry on top? Zappos might just have the best customer service ever – something I came to discover when I very stupidly chose to ship the dress I planned on wearing to my sister-in-law’s wedding to an old address of Ted’s. Rachel not only managed to re-direct my order in time for the big day but actually ended up giving me a number of great recommendations for our upcoming (at the time) trip to Atlanta.
