BDG Medium Blue Wash Denim Legging, $39 at Urban Outfitters.
Yes, you read that right. A legging made out of denim. It may sound kind of weird but they are the perfect combo with the comfort of a legging and the "put togetherness" of a skinny jean. I was a little skeptical myself at first, but on Friday I did some minor Retail Therapy (nothing too huge but I managed to buy these babies at Urban Outfitters, that store is really quite dangerous for my pocketbook but I'm just drawn to it). The problem with my normal skinny jeans, is that they start to stretch too much throughout the day and lose a little shape creating what looks like a saggy bottom. And that certainly is not a hot look (saggy bottom britches should be on the list of big no-no's somewhere after VPL). I thought maybe a denim legging would have less of a sag factor since my regular leggings never sag, so I snatched these up and tested them out over the weekend and I am happy to report that they certainly wore wonderfully. They are very fitted like a nice skinny jean, but the stretchiness never lost shape (i.e. even after a long day of wearing them my the pants still fit snugly in all the right places). And to the normal eye, you wouldn't even notice these are technically a "legging" unless you realized that they didn't have a zipper in the front.
A close-up. See the lack of zipper in the front? This is the only tell-tale sign that these aren't 100% your standard jean. But trust me these still look structured enough to be worn in lieu of your normal skinnies.
I love them so much I'm going back to buy another pair in this faded gray color. I think it is fabulous (I was worried a light color might over-emphasize my curves and make me look a little too booty-licious, but I think they will be fine - besides this year I've been working on accepting my shape as it is, bootay and all!).

They have a few other colors too (see below) so if you are like me and LOVE LOVE your skinnies, but hate hate it when they've lost their great shape at the end of the day then check these puppies out.
Here's the other colors I saw in stores:
BDG Denim Leggings in: Black, 70s Denim Blue, and Charcoal. $39 each at Urban Outfitters.
And these I didn't see in store, they might be online only, but I could die over this color. It makes me wish I could wear jeans everyday....oh to have a jeans-wearing job would be absolutely wonderful. :)
