As a stay-at-home mom, my daily uniform is jeans…love them, spend almost every day in them. Sadly (or, really, not sadly, as it allows me to stay at home), I’m frugal. I would love to spend a lot on a few pairs, but I just can’t. So the Gap or cheaper it usually is. I really don’t have many pairs considering how much I wear them.
It’s very difficult for me to find a pair of jeans that fit, nevermind with a wash I really like. Or pockets that don’t make my butt look bigger than it really is. I know everyone thinks that about themselves, but it’s really true for me: I am really not in proportion. I dream of it, but it’s probably not going to happen, so instead, I shop endlessly for jeans. I ruined my favorite pair by wearing them literally until I was 7.5 months pregnant with Jack Henry last summer. Remember my hormonal post-baby jeans shopping experience?
I found one pair (while on vacation) from the Gap that I think I’m going to love! (EDITED TO ADD: I DID NOT LOVE THESE JEANS.) They’re going in the wash soon, so I can figure out how they wear and if I love them as much as I think I’m going to…cause sometimes, you know, they stretch out funky when you wear them, or they don’t wash well, or whatever.
So my question is: how many pairs of jeans do you own (you don’t have to count ratty old pairs that you’d only paint the house or mow the lawn in), and what’s the most you’ve ever spent on a pair of jeans? Come on, people…’fess up. I will in the comments in a while.
