I know flares were fashionable about two years ago, but two years ago is actually when I got the above jeans. It has just taken me this length of time to get used to the idea of wearing jeans that are as wide at the bottom as they are at the top.

Yep, I'm of the skinny jean generation and I openly admit I have a fear of every other jean style. Just like Princess Anne battles ahead with the hair 'do of her hey day, I am making my way through life in variations on the same pair of jeans I wore when I was 18. HELP.

Admittedly I have upgraded from standard Joni/Jamie jeans to ones with rips in the knees and even frayed hems. I've also experimented with Mom jeans and boyfriend jeans on the very rare occasion, but always bounced back to my skinnies like they're a little flattering magnet.

I strongly believe in pushing myself out of my comfort zone though, so I am going to continue trying to resist the lure of the skinny. 

If you've had similar issues, or have found another jean style you're comfortable in, do let me know! I also really want some cropped flare jeans but finding petite, good fitting ones is a bloody nightmare! If you have done so please do share how/where. I will update my blog with the find ASAP if I ever do x
