First, a pair of bootcut American Eagle jeans I bought last fall because it seemed like bootcut was the style at my last school and every Friday was black/orange/andjeans day. Plus I hadn't worn a pair of bootcuts in a couple of years and thought it would be a nice change. I can't even remember if I wore them to school. I believe the only time I ever remember leaving the house in them was for a trip to the vet. How ridiculous. I suppose they were only $30, but there they hang.
You'd also find a pair of Gap boyfriend crops. Nice and comfortable but they stretch out when I wear them and by the end of the day they will be falling off. I've worn them once in the last 4 months. They are nice and soft and comfy though. Until they become a falling-off-burden.
Then, you'd find my Aerie jeans. I bought these skinny jeans in February 2012 and they are my go-to jeans. I mean, I wouldn't go so far as to call them "comfortable", but when a skirt is too formal and gym shorts won't do, they are my go-to. I, since, have not found jeans at Aerie, but I look every once in a while. They are as good as it's gonna get for jeans.
So that's it. Kind of sad, right?
Awhile back I was directed to J.Crew's website from another blog and I decided it was time to order some grown up jeans. Of course, being unfamiliar with how grown-up jeans work, I had no idea what size to get. The ones in my closet are sized in those fake numbers: 2, 4, 6, etc. Completely inconclusive measuring when it comes to buying grown-up jeans. I ordered a 27 based on what I saw on the size chart. They arrived a week later and were too tight. But jeans that are too big are awful uncomfortable to me, so I didn't want to go too big, especially since these things are stretchy. I exchanged them for a pair of 28s. These ones are fantastic. They are a great, dark color and are very soft. Super flattering too! They are kind of high-waisted compared to what I'm used to wearing but I think that is just fine.

So. Where do you buy your jeans?
