For years I struggled to find a pair of jeans that were flattering and fit properly. I would go shopping in search of the perfect pair, try a couple on, get frustrated and go home thinking that maybe there just weren’t any jeans out there for me.
Then one lovely sunny day I popped into a store and tried on yet another pair of jeans. They were perfect for me. Plain, simple, they pulled me in at all the right places and made me look thinner than I am (hooray!). They were magic jeans! Oh, and they happened to be made by J Brand.
Since then I have been a big J Brand fan, I usually buy the 811 mid rise skinnies as worn here by none other than the very stylish Kate Middleton;
More recently I stumbled across a pair of white skinny jeans that were on sale at Witchery and I absolutely loved the fit. The waist is mid rise (perfect for a mummy tummy) and they seem to sit and fit just right. Plus, white jeans are highly recommended by the style bible ‘Parisian Chic’ (as seen below right) and so I just had to have them!
But I would have to say that my most recent and exciting jean jeanie find was inspired by a post from the legendary Nikki Parkinson from Styling You that you can find here. Nikki showed how to rock a coloured jean this Autumn-Winter, and after reading her post, my mind was made up!
I headed to Big W and thought I would check out the Emerson range of coloured jeans, and sitting right there on the rack was one lone, cobalt-blue pair of jeans in my size. It was love at first sight!
After a quick trip to my tailor, I have to say that they are the softest and most comfortable pair of jeans that I have ever owned. And they only cost me $19! These jeans are the ultimate addition to any winter wardrobe (and perfect for any mum with a little person with sticky fingers!).
And so the moral of my little jean jeanie story is that there is a perfect pair of jeans out there for everyone, you just have to find them. Happy hunting!

**Ps. A little tip that I learnt from a friend years ago is to take your jeans to a tailor and have the pockets cut out and sewn down. It makes the front of the jeans sit smoothly and is more slimming**
What are your favourite jeans?
Do you have any tips to make them fit and sit better?0
