Happy hump day, friends! Well, yesterday I shared two early summer looks, and I’m starting this post with a sweater. 🤦🏻♀️
I’m not going to start posting winter fashion, but yesterday we had snow flurries all day, and I wore this sweater, jeans, and Reebok sneakers.
I did some Instastories, and I posted a video in my Facebook group, and I got lots of questions about my outfit, so I’m sharing it here (mainly they were asking about my jewelry).
Now let’s talk about jeans! I typically wear a skinny jean. They may or may not be the most flattering on my pear shape, but I like that I can wear them with boots in the winter and sandals in the summer.
If you’re a pear shape like me, you have small shoulders with small to medium-sized breasts, your hips are the widest part of your body, and this is where you carry most of your weight.
I have been adding more straight leg crop jeans to my wardrobe, and I will probably lean towards that style this summer.
Today I’m sharing 5 brands of jeans and how they look from the front and the back. Let’s start with my LEAST favorite pair.
A few weeks ago, I shared these Scoop jeans with you and said I would wear them with a longer top because I didn’t like the way they looked from the back.
They’re also a lighter jean, and lighter jeans typically make you look bigger than a dark jean. These are a high waist jean with a frayed hem. They are priced under $25.
The back of the jeans have small pockets, and I’m not a fan of the way it looks. The jeans are okay, but if you are trying to slim your rear areas, these are not the best jeans.

Next up are these American Eagle jeans. These jeans are inexpensive and one of my favorite pairs of jeans.
They have large pockets, and they are a darker color.

Next up are these Straight Crop Levi Jeans from JCPenney. They are under $40 and will be great for spring and summer.
These are a good size pocket.

(Sorry they have black on the knees, I think I brushed up against my car, and it needs to be washed. We did another drive-by parade yesterday, and I was putting balloons on my car. )
The pocket-size is good and not too small.

Lastly, I’m styling my Ag Jeans. These are the Farrah High Waist Jeans, and I’ve had them for at least four years. They are my favorite, but they are also the most expensive. This is a very similar pair.
I know I’m going to get asked why I like these jeans the best, and I love the feel and the way they don’t stretch.

These are my newest Ag jeans, and I love them too. I shared them in this post. Because I’m pear shape and I wear skinny jeans, I typically do a front tuck and leave the back hanging. This is a good solution to help with my body type and wearing skinny jeans.
Guide to Jeans for Your Body Type: (obviously I don’t follow these rules)
Pear Shape Body- Jeans with tapered legs and bootcut styles that lengthen the look of the legs. Denim in a dark-wash color. Darker shades on your lower half are an excellent way to slim the legs and make them appear longer, especially when worn with pointy heels—Flare legs, which help to balance the body.
Apple Shape Body- A mid-rise jean (not too low or high waist). Apple-shapes tend to be slimmer throughout the leg, which means you look especially amazing in a pair of skinny jeans. Try them at an ankle-length, hitting right above the ankle bone. Showing some skin between your ankle and shoe will give the illusion of mile-long legs.
Hourglass Shape Body- Jeans with wider legs and a slight flare. Just make sure that the flares don’t exceed the width of your shoulders. Low-rise jeans in a bootcut style. Straight-leg jeans will look just as great and still show off your curves. Black or very dark denim.
Banana Shape Body- Jeans that fit right above the hips or low on your waist. These will help to create some shape in this area.
Beauty For the Heart~~ I love the below quote because I see so many people commenting, especially on Facebook and arguing their belief about something.
“I’m not suggesting that you have to agree with everything everyone says. I’m simply saying that you’re not obligated to correct them! No one has appointed you Earth’s guardian of truth and accuracy.” -Robert Morris
We are living online more than ever, and there are always people who think they have to correct everyone. As believers, we want to uplift and encourage. We don’t always have to be right or make someone believe the way we believe.
If you feel like you need to say something, make sure it’s filled with grace. Or better yet, don’t say anything.
Have a blessed day!
