What's in my closet: Jeans


I am finally at my pre-baby shape, more or less. I can fit (sometimes squeeze) into all of my jeans. I thought it would be fun to take a look at all the jeans in my closet!

I have to say, the jeans I wear most often, according to the camera, are one of the least flattering, paired with a tucked in tank top and flats*

I think there are a few in the line up I should wear more often...and a couple I should just get rid of.

Which ones do you like the best?? Which ones the least???

I can give you a list of the names of the jeans if you are interested, just let me know! 


ps. That's a bite mark on my shoulder.  My 1.5 year old took off a chunk of skin!
pps.  I know what you are thinking: why is her face so pink?...I don't know...bad lighting? Lack of foundation?
*I never ever tuck my tops in.


UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who left a comment! I am donating #9, and putting #4,7,10 into storage.  I like the idea of hemming #4, but maybe I can find a pair of 7's that are skinnies that fit the same!
I wore #12 today. I rarely wear them.
#6 is practically slides off. I love that about them.
#11 works better with a loose top.

  1. Wow. Nothing is better in a girl's closet than a stack of jeans. I like numbers 1,2,6,8 and 12 -basically all the skinny cuts. I think that #8 is the most flattering. My least favorite are 9 and 10, not that your figure doesn't look great but because I haven't really recovered from the bootcut mania of yesteryear (just a personal thing) !

  2. I agree with Caitlin! You are so petite - the more tailored is the most flattering (IMO). Love the colour of your flats..a tank in that colour would look great on you too!

  3. Wow. You look great!
    I love #11 & 12 the distressed skinny looks awesome, I'm a huge fan.
    Going down memory lane (pre-pregnancy jeans) is very brave of you. I am not there yet, afraid of not being able to get the jean past my thigh, major case of muffin top or popping buttons 😬

  4. You look great in all of them, but it would be interesting to see the non-skinnies with a heel, even a small one. Still working on getting back into my pre-pregnancy jeans, this is making me excited though.

    What a fun post. Is #12 your Gap Forever Skinnies? I would not mind learning the names of the jeans.

  6. I like the slimmer jeans, but I think that it's because I prefer skinnies. Of the other pairs, my favorites are 5 & 6!

  8. You have a LOT of jeans!! I think the black ones and all the distressed / rolled ankle ones look the best!

  9. I love the skinnies best too! #'s 1, 11 and 12 look awesome. This is a good idea - I'm totally going to take pictures of myself in my jeans to see which ones look best. Or, at least, less horrific!

  11. Gotta love a good pair of jeans. I honestly think they all look great. I wish I could pull off floral jeans! I actually just had a big hissy fit this weekend because I didn't have any jeans that fit. None of my pants seem to fit the same since I had a baby, even though technically I am back to my old size. I went out by myself and splurged on a brand new pair that weren't from Old Navy for once.
