Are you still in a skinny jeans rut? Did you still feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to start after reading A Comprehensive Guide to Alternatives to Skinny Jeans, our last blog on the subject? Kyle and I recently realized that perhaps we needed to give everyone one pair of jeans to catapult them out of the skinny jeans rut. What is the one, magical pair that will transport you over to the other side, you ask? It is the Madewell Perfect Vintage Jean, which comes in a wide size range and many colors.
In fact, I’m going to buy my own pair as soon as I have time to take myself shopping. I am not in a skinny jeans rut, I am in an almost-no-jeans rut! I currently have one pair of amazing straight leg splatter paint jeans Kyle made for me, a pair of white culotte jeans that are only appropriate for certain outfits and seasons, and a pair of incredible, long flared jeans that need to be repaired. I keep wondering if the other moms at flag football will notice if I wear the same jeans every single Sunday. At least they are really cool!
Could someone please tell me what 33-year-old moms are supposed to wear? I honestly have no idea how to dress. (This is a real question, I do not know, plz provide reference photos and the first person who says “whatever you want” is blocked)

The Perfect Outfit
Yes, the tweet above the outfit is real! A client forwarded it to me to illustrate how she felt before she went through the Real Life Style process. This client is one of two recent clients who already had a pair of Madewell Perfect Vintage Jeans in their closets. This one knew it was great. The other hadn’t quite figured out the shoes to make them work. This is why we are giving you the whole outfit. I encourage you to also click through to the Madewell website and look around to see some of their outfit examples on all the different models and colors of the style.
Is an open front jacket too boho for you? We also love the Quinn Faux Suede Moto Jacket from Kut From the Kloth. I have purchased it for myself and for a client. I gotta tell you though, this new purple haze color is going on my birthday list. Obsessed!!!
Do the Madewell Perfect Vintage Jeans work for you? Is there another pair you prefer? Let us know in the comments below!
