Ditching the jeans!

I'm fed up with feeling a bit of a scruff in my jeans, plus I can never find any to fit me quite well enough, so I've decided to be a bit more adventurous and ditch jeans for the spring and summer at least. I've got a couple of little dresses/tunics to wear with leggings and I'm going to order a few more this evening, then just rotate them all; thought I'd wear them with leggings at the moment and when it gets warmer ditch the leggings and go bare legged.

Has anyone else done the same thing recently?

I haven't ditched my jeans entirely but have been wearing leggings with a tunic and also dresses with tights and boots much more. I love it and feel much more comfortable too.

I was fed up with the waistband on my jeans cutting me in half, I find leggings or tights give me a much nicer silhouette.

I totally agree with you, Sunny. I always end up with a muffin top, regardless of whether I wear a belt or not, then my vest top/jumper rides up. Urgh, not very flattering. It doesn't help that my teenage daughter is a size 6 and looks amazing in her jeans haha.

I've just ordered 3 dresses from Select online; all have a ruched waistband and are a tea-dress style, so hopefully they will look nice worn with our without leggings underneath.
