Attn: Shorties! Perfect + Affordable Skinny Jeans.

For years I have been on a continuous hunt for the perfect pair of skinny jeans.  Skinny jeans are my favorite type to wear.  Here is my definition of perfect skinny jeans:
  1. truly skinny and stays skinny all day, everyday.
  2. must have stretch (baggy butt syndrome is the worst thing to experience mid day).
  3. something I can buy off the shelf and wear right away without alterations.
  4. will fit my butt, hips and thighs but won't effect the skinniness of the rest of the leg.
  5. nothing low rise or super low rise...I am not 16.
About me: I am 5'1" and have issues with skinny jeans because sometimes when a pair of jeans fit me at the waist they don't fit right on my short, stumpy legs.  And vice versa.  I'm always looking for something that can accommodate the fact that I'm not a stick the whole way down. 

If you are like me and have this same problem, then this might be of help (unless you already tried these and hated them)!  I am in love with these BDG Grazer Cigarette jeans from Urban Outfitters.  They are simply perfect from top to bottom.  I can wear them a whole day and they will look exactly how they did when I first put them on.  They have a lot of stretch in them but still look and feel more like jeans than jeggings.  The mid-rise works because I hate low rise and most high rise jeans don't work for me and my non-existent torso.  When shopping for these, make sure you look for the word "grazer" in the style name since they also have "ankle" styles but I can't really vouch for the fit of those.

Here are some simple outfits that I put together showing how versatile and awesome these jeans are. I have them in Smokestack and True Indigo but am probably going to pick up a pair in black.  To top things off, I've also included my new favorite bag that I've been sporting lately :)

top: Velvet for Uniqlo, shoes: Madewell sunset sandals
bag: Alexander Wang Rocco

 Shoes: Urban Outfitters

The reason why I'm sharing this now is because from now until September 6th, all jeans at Urban Outfitters are on sale for $39 in store and online.  The grazers are retailed for $54.  And if you use discount code FALLFORIT, you'll get free shipping with no minimum purchase amount.  Enjoy!
