my new FAVORITE jeans {and a giveaway!}

Happy Thursday! Today I'm talking denim. Everyone knows how hard shopping for the perfect jean can be. I believe a skinny jean is a necessity in all wardrobes, no matter your height, shape or size. However, finding the right skinny jean is where it gets tricky. Many can be too thin, too revealing or even too tight. And for me, comfort is key! I love a good skinny jean with built-in stretch, a soft fabric, and a higher rise that allows you to breathe  after a big meal. Cue the 7 For All Mankind "Slim Illusion Ankle Skinny." The name says it all; they truly do give you the illusion of being slimmer. I am definitely curvier in the leg department, and I love the way these jeans flatter. These 7FAM people know what they're doing!

The fabric is SUPER soft which is an immediate plus for me! The wash is a tad lighter in all the right areas, and the ankle length is exactly where a jean should hit for maximum flattery -- on your ankle bone. Here are a few shots of how I first styled these babies with peplum and a colorful blazer for an evening out ::
