The compliment jeans

Zara jeans, top & necklace // Mango jacket // Essentiel Bag
I know, I know. Every blogger in the universe is wearing these gigantic elepanthe-leg jeans already.  I initally fell in love with them after I saw this post, more than a year ago and when I spotted these at Zara in early September my heart skipped a beat. After a long yes-no-yes-no debate in the fitting room I decided to get these, and boy are my legs glad I did! My trusty Gap jeans are starting to loose their stretch and let’s be honest, there’s no way anyone can get into a skinny jean that has no stretch. So, a lot of bloggers are sporting these, but there isn’t a living soul on campus that has a bootcut pair that even comes near the width of these. And for that, people notice me and talk to me. From classmates teasingly calling me Donna to people complimenting me on my seemingly endless legs, these jeans are the best socialisers. For some reason I also feel highly confident in them, they’re my power jeans. I already fear the day I wear them out…

    I love that you called them power jeans.

    Oh Nikki, you look SO chic here! Those pants look stunning on you, and I love that you paired them with that simple striped top and statement necklace. I have a pair jeans like those, but I feel so awkward in them – I almost never wear jeans!

    You look beyond GORGEOUS in these!

  7. 5 November 2012 / 15:15

    ahh, i've thought about it, but i just can't do it. you look so long and lean and perfect in these.
    what a great choice. love them!

    I loooooove them. You look stunning in these jeans. (And that Daybook post makes me swoon too!) I haven't had the courage to try the wide leg pants yet. Maybe I should just go try on a pair.

    love your jeans so much! i got a pair of extreme flairs last year and became infatuated instantly 🙂 they look great on us tall girls, right? haha 🙂 but so true, no one on campus wears them! oh well, the blogging world is ahead of all the trends anyway 😉

    I Love your style. You look great in those pants, I don't think I could pull them off myself. I want your purse and your jacket! I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. Would you maybe want to follow each other?

    Much Love,

    Ik ben er een grote fan van!! Ik volg the daybook ook en had er ook al even een crush op.. Ik heb er gewoon nog nergens eentje gevonden die me goed stond.. Ik ga dus binnenkort eens binnenspringen bij de Zara. Leuke outfit!

  12. 5 November 2012 / 18:39

    Even though a lot of us have them, they still look amazing. They make your legs look long and lean – beautiful!

    I NEED some jeans like this, you look GORGEOUS and I love the outfit.

  23. 6 November 2012 / 19:56

    they look amazing on you! but you already have great legs! i do love them, though. and the thought of skinny jeans with no stretch makes me a little sick.

  24. 7 November 2012 / 05:15

    I agree! My huge boot-cut jeans just like this are my power jeans too. A must-have item in every girl's closet. These make your legs go on forever! And I die over your adorable coat. I always love what you wear 🙂

    oh, the fallen leaves and seeing you strolling through them is just a gorgeous sight! i love the jeans, your legs look a mile long and awesome. the description of them is pretty rad too, i had a giggle!

    what is up with skinnies losing their stretch anyways, such a strange phenomenon. i've had the same thing happen but didn't understand how, glad i'm not alone 🙂

    you're beautiful Nikki! ♥

    Whenever I wear my high waisted flares people call me Donna too, yet another redhead thing. I think this is a fabulous look on you and I'm so glad you're being a trendsetter on campus!

  27. 8 November 2012 / 18:36
