My Wit and Wisdom boot cut jeans arrived. Y’ALL. They’re good. Realllllly good.
These jeans slenderize you like crazy, but still allow you to breathe. They suck in all the right parts, but still allow you to breathe. They also allow you to sit comfortably…and I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this already, but they STILL ALLOW YOU TO BREATHE.
And OH MY WORD are they comfy. They are a mid rise (but I promise, they aren’t high rise), they don’t slip down at the waist, and they hold their shape. At 5’4″, with tall wedges (like 3 1/2 inches) on, I don’t kneed them hemmed. And here’s the deal, from the comments on the site and the ones I’ve received (some comments are shared below), these jeans appear to be flattering on all different body types. BAM.
When trying them on, I threw on my favorite LUSH top and my new favorite necklace! I absolutely LOVE red and turquoise together, and the necklace puts the two colors together with a leather tassel at the bottom. All the heart eyes, ladies.
Size References: I’m wearing a 27 in the jeans, so I think they are true to size. I also have a 27 in the black skinny ankle jeans I featured during the sale, but those are much tighter than these. I’m wearing a small in the top, so it was true to size for me as well. I recommend sizing up a 1/2 size in the cork wedges. They are still one of my favorite pairs of wedges ever (2 years in a row now), and they are 40% OFF! And I want to again point out how nicely the taupe bag lightens up the entire outfit!
Now here’s the only thing I don’t like about the jeans. The light colored stitching. But I’m going to get over that (and so will you) because all we have to do is not tuck in our shirts….and then voila, no stitching! If you’ve been on the fence about boot cut jeans, notice how they aren’t very wide on the bottom. They are a very subtle boot cut, so they should ease you right on in to this boot cut trend. Although I’m not sure I would call it a trend, because these babies are here to stay.
And seriously, I’m not sure how they have so much stretch in them, but still manage to provide a really snug fit…but they do!
I love this review on the site: These are like yoga pants, jeans, and a tummy tuck all in one! So comfy! I loved that description! Another reviewer said, Hands down, these are the most flattering and comfortable jeans I’ve ever owned! And another said Life Changing Jeans! No other jeans make me feel as comfortable, confident or cuter than these. Nothing compares to this fit. I mean. I’m telling you. These jeans are greatness.
And here’s a blog comment I received from a reader: Oh my word! You were so right about the Wit and Wisdom absolution jeans!! I really didn’t think they would work on me because I’m short and “curvy” and have gained some weight lately. LOL! The size 12 jeans fit me great! I’ve been reading your blog for two years and this is the first time I’ve commented because I’m that excited over these jeans. I love your blog and all your reviews. Thank you again!

And see below for several Wit and Wisdom options. ALL have EXCELLENT reviews. Even if you are skeptical…you at least need to try one pair of these jeans! They are zero risk with free shipping and free returns…and maybe you too will think they are LIFE CHANGING like the reviewer above! Remember, I had a friend that bought 4 pair and loved them all! And at $68, you will be getting a really great quality pair of jeans, without a crazy price tag!
And just because I feel you need to see it up close and personal. The necklace. Because DARLING. Red, turquoise, and leather? YES M’AM!
Okay, enough about my jeans, let’s talk about guy’s jeans for a second. Maybe you have a guy that loves to shop. #goodforyou
My guy does not love to shop. In fact, we’ve been married for 15 years and dated for 7 years before getting married….and we have NEVER been to the mall together. SERIOUSLY. Never. Some of you might feel sorry for me, but here’s the deal, I don’t want him at the mall with me. I mean, then he would see that people KNOW ME BY NAME THERE, and that wouldn’t be good for anybody. 🙂
I’m guessing that most of you ladies, like me, are the ones in charge of shopping for your guy. If so, shopping for jeans can be very confusing…but good news, I’m teaming up with Nordstrom today to talk about men’s jeans! Lucky for us, Nordstrom makes it easy for us by dividing men’s jeans into 6 different categories, defining each of those categories for us, and then offering lots of choices in each category! Click HERE to get to the men’s jeans homepage and click HERE to get to the Men’s Jeans Fit Guide! These pages are so helpful and will really walk you through the process!
I know my guy is a relaxed fit kind of guy (With an all-around loose fit, the laid-back cut works for a variety of body types.), so I immediately went HERE. He likes the most relaxed fit in the thigh area possible.
However, I know lots of guys are all about the bootcut. This cut works best with boots thanks to its wider leg opening. Depending on the fit through the thighs, they can read more rocker (tight) or modern cowboy (loose).
Here’s a collage I threw together with some of my favorites that I checked out online! A couple of Mavi jeans are highlighted, and I’ve heard some really great things about this brand! Most of them are under $100, and they have excellent reviews!

So I’m interested, do you shop for your guys, or do your guys shop for themselves? Sound off in the comments!
See y’all back here on Friday for a SHOE POST!!!!! I’m going to set you up with some shoes that will transition perfectly from summer to fall!
