30 Days of Denim – Day Six

Alternate Title: The One With The Skinny Jeans

So hey, here’s something out of my comfort zone. We were getting a little comfy there with the cardigan sweaters so why not just dive right into the deep end, shall we?
Baby’s First Pair of Skinny Jeans

(And frankly, she had to grow a pair in order to pose for pictures in them)

Can we talk about skinny jeans for a minute?  Because, like bathing suit shopping, I think skinny jeans kind of get a bad rap. I mean, I understand the panic, I do. I had a panic stricken moment when I went to take this picture because I had just eaten lunch and I mean: THE HORROR. You mean I have to take pictures in a pair of skinny jeans after I have consumed one morsel of food?

What the hell is that all about?

It actually wasn’t just lunch, it was a freaking meal after I had annihilated my workout, but all I could think about was that I probably should not be wearing these pants. Because let’s be real — I’m a lady with some ample thighs. At my best, you’d call them “muscular.” At their worst, a lame fashion magazine would call them a “problem area.”

But here’s the thing: WHO CARES?


When I tried these pants on (scared out of my mind) I actually felt like kind of a rock star. Sure I also felt a little bit insecure and a little bit like, ohmygod but then I decided to revert back to that rock star feeling because you know what: IT WAS MORE FUN. Remember when you were a kid and it was fun to get dressed? You didn’t think about what matched, or what looked good on your body — you picked what was fun!

And style should be fun, right?

So yes. I have  thighs. And they touch.  There will never be a gap.  They are muscular thighs. Lou Ferrigno thighs, if you will. Also, I have calves that like to make themselves known, and an ass that sure doesn’t want to remain anonymous.


But you know what? I have worked really hard for all of those muscles over the last year, so why should I feel nervous about showing them because they aren’t super model thin?

I say I shouldn’t.

Here’s to wearing what is more of wearing what is fun and less of paying attention to rules! Because that shit is rock and roll, my friends.

Shirt: Crap, I cut out the tag because it was floppy.  It’s from Target though (natch)
Jeans: Old Navy “The Diva” (ugh) Braided Skinnies (Ok so you aren’t completely dead to me, Old Navy. For now.)
Shoes:  Xhilaration
Necklace (which Garrett calls my “Pebbles + Bam Bam Necklace”): Nordstrom

What did you wear today?

Join the group and play a little show and tell.

    You continue to look adorable and stylish and awesome. I am seriously impressed! I’m particularly impressed with your accessories. I could not pull off that necklace, but it looks great!

    • Holly says:

      Hey thanks, Maureen! Actually, accessories have always been my favorite part. I LOVE jewelry. Not fancy jewelry that I can’t break, drop or lose — but fun jewelry, you know? 😉

  2. Heather R says:

    You look fabulous!!! I love how confident you are-I think I need to start thinking the way you do!

  3. tori says:

    Your booty looks a-mazing in those skinny jeans. you are inspiring me. I am not quite there yet but I am getting so close 🙂

    • Holly says:

      Thanks girl! That’s funny because YOU inspire ME! If you need some support you just let me know — it’s the journey, not the destination!

  4. Jessica says:

    You look GREAT in those jeans!

  5. Brittany says:

    Really? Your thighs are your problem area? I would beg to differ. They look like great, normal thighs to me!

    • Holly says:

      Can I just keep you in my pocket while I’m reading those trashy magazines? You could pop out and remind me of that every once in a while! 😉

  6. Christy says:

    You look great in those jeans!

    I wore a old worn out Old Navy t-shirt, Old Navy jeans that I really shouldn’t have bought, but because my thighs rub together all of my jeans fray right there and I couldn’t leave Old Navy without a new pair of pants or I would have been naked, and I don’t think I even brushed my hair. Can you tell I’m a work at home Mom.

  7. Robin says:

    I’m really loving this series! I have a very minimal wardrobe and am always lost when I look in the closet. I never accessorise even though I sometimes go crazy in the store and buy necklaces and bracelets. Thanks for spending the time to do this series and perhaps one of these days I’ll learn to pull it together.

  8. Erica says:

    You. Look. Awesome. Sauce.

  9. Carla says:

    You look smokin’ hot girl! Look at your leg muscles & glutes! You earned the right to wear skinny jeans!!!

    • Holly says:

      It’s funny, that’s kind of how I felt. Like, WHO CARES that my thighs are muscle-y. I earned that shit, so I’m going to rock these tight little pants. But um, also…thank god for stretch! 😉

  10. Amelia says:

    You look terrific in those jeans! I definitely love these posts. So inspirational 🙂

  11. sizzle says:

    I think you look pretty bad ass in those jeans. Your butt looks great in them! (It had to be said.)

    Lady, I have one word for you: BADONKADONK (that’s a good word. WORK IT!)
