these are not skinny jeans

I’ve gone out on a limb. It’s not a big thing–but sometimes small things can feel like a big change. Every pair of jeans in my closet is skinny jeans–well, I do have one pair of boyfriend jeans that are straight leg. But basically, I wear skinny jeans. I’ve been seeing more flare jeans around and I kind of like the look–I took a risk and purchased this pair from Madewell. It’s been fun to try something new. It feels good to break out of my comfort zone!
