I say used to because I donated them a couple of years ago.
Why did I donate them?
Because I never wore them.
I would put them on, but then I would always take them off before leaving the house.
I just thought that maybe black jeans weren’t for me.
But then last year I started seeing DARLING outfits all over Pinterest….outfits with black jeans.
Outfits that I couldn’t recreate because I didn’t have a pair of black jeans.
This year I couldn’t continue to overlook black jeans.
Take a look at this next collage with me.
If you don’t have a pair of black jeans, and if you don’t even think you want a pair of black jeans…
I’m 99.99% sure that this collage will make your re-think your stance.
And if you already own and love black jeans, then I’m sure you are shaking you’re head at me in shame. That’s okay, I’m shaking my head at myself too! 😉
I’ve been missing some major fashion opportunities girls!

Again, if you already have black jeans, you are probably patting yourself on the back.
Good for you.
So if you don’t have them, are you jumping on the black jean train yet?
If not, I have one more pic that will surely push you off the fence….
this will be an outfit recreation in the very near future fo’ sho’.

Case closed with that last pic, right?
So, I went on a quest for black jeans. I actually ordered 8 pair right before the move to be delivered to the new house. (I knew I was going to be busy for several weeks and not going to be going on mall field trips for hours to find the perfect jeans, so I thought having them at the house would be the best option. When they all arrived, Chris may have thought otherwise.) 😉
So there’s the deal…
Out of the 8 I ordered, I hated 5 of them.
I can’t tell you exactly why I hated them, I just did.
But I tell you this, if they didn’t make me look as skinny as possible, they were on the “no” list. 🙂
If we’re going to be honest, that’s how it works with lots of my clothes.
Same with you?
The ones that I ended up going with?
The length was perfect on me, they were a great fit, and I really liked the zippers at the ankles.
For size reference, I got the 27.
I had actually ordered “b” for myself after my Old Navy post, but when I received them, they were too long. I think that at 5’4″ I should have gotten the “short” option if I didn’t want to have to get them altered.
However, by the time I realized that they were too long for my liking, my 8 pair of jeans had arrived, and when I tried them on, I fell in love with THESE .
So the Old Navy pair went back (even though I think the short version would have worked on me), and I kept the Mya ankle zipper jeans.
I knew immediately what outfit I was going to put together first with the jeans.
Well, I decided to go ahead and put some pants on with it and see how I liked that look.
So I put this next outfit together in my mind. And in my mind, it was DARLING.
(FYI: The Lucky Emmie flats that I’ve featured before are on sale for $44 HERE.)
In real life I thought it was even better!!!!!!!!
Check this outfit out!!!!!
Simple. Easy. CUTE!
And I am absolutely smitten with the black denim!
I can’t wait to recreate several of the outfits in the Pinterest collage at the beginning of the post!
I thought the blue plaid looked great with the black jeans. And then I threw in the leopard.
AND. OH. MY. WORD.
This entire outfit will be in heavy rotation this fall.
Look at me.
Now I love black jeans.
I know it’s hard to tell, but trust me, the jeans were a great fit.
And at $59 they are a really good buy too!
Again, for size reference, I’m wearing a 27.

My other favorites were the Wit and Wisdom jeans HERE.
For size reference, I was wearing a 4.
If you like jeans that sit a little higher on your waist, then these might be for you!
They were also longer and didn’t have zippers at the ankles.
And here are the rockstar zipper super skinny jeans from Old Navy (before I took them back).
I really think if I had ordered these in a “short” they would have been perfect!
Like I said in a previous post, they remind me of some much more expensive jeans you can find HERE (Joe’s) and a mid-priced version HERE from Treasure and Bond (these have amazing reviews!). I really wish I would have ordered the Treasure and bond ones to try for myself. That was a total oversight on my part.
Click HERE for the Old Navy version.
For size reference, I sized up and was wearing a size 6.
did really love the cognac booties paired with the black jeans in this outfit too.
The cognac booties above are from Old Navy.
But although I loved the color, I didn’t love the quality.
So here are some other cognac bootie options:
