Grey Skinny Jeans

Shawl Cardigan

OTK Boots

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE these jeans? I have to admit, when I first saw the price tag…I almost put them right back on the rack. I don’t mind spending $$$ for a GREAT pair of classic blue jeans…but being that these were grey…I just wasn’t sure they were worth it. I told myself…they probably won’t fit well…the pockets will make my bootay look flat…I will have a horrible muffin top for sure. And then…I tried them on. Kids…these ain’t yo mama’s jeans. Although maybe they should be called mom jeans because THIS mom fell in love. They are thin (but not too thin), stretchy, suck-you-in-without-being-tight-on-your-waist jeans. They feel amazing on. And the funny thing is…I just did a search for them online in blue denim and the first review I found was also from a mom singing their praises!

    I’ve been looking for a new pair of gray jeans and the color of these is perfect. I’m on a spending freeze right now but might add these to my spring wish list. Do they run tts?

      I would say they run TTS. I was considering going down a size because they do have a lot of stretch but I stayed with my usual 27 and they do not bag at all…even after a couple of wears! Seriously considering splurging on blue denim next! =)

    Aren’t those amaaaazing???? I have them too…did a review on them recently!!

    The color is truly amazing, after I thought I had enough grey jeans, these came along…and the fit and feel is something else. Great outfit!!

    I too just picked up my first pair of Avedons (only second pair of premium denim). I bought the dark grey/blue pair (Sierra wash) and I want to buy them in all washes. They don’t bag in the crotch or stretch out. The fit like a glove. In love. I’d love to see yours with flats or heels!

    ha! I am wearing my gray Citizens as I read this. I am new to your blog but am enjoying it! I am a huge fan of citizens in general and have multiple pairs. Be warned that different colors fit different because the material varies. My gray pair I got last fall (2013) and they have been one of my favorite and most comfortable pairs ever. My other favorite pair is a blue from last winter similar to the Cruz color out now. Very comfy but great skinny leg. Worth the money but hopefully you can find a promo somewhere at some point. I usually shop Nordstrom, bloomies, and shopbop for jeans and sometimes Piperlime. They look great on you and love he outfit!
