Well, today I’m talking about a pair of MUST HAVE jeans from the past that many of you have claimed as YOUR personal favorite MUST HAVE jeans. I originally named them a MUST HAVE in January of this year, but I quit talking about them earlier this year because they were sold out and no longer available. I’m talking about them again today because I received an e-mail a couple of weeks ago that caused me to think about them again, and I realized there was a new pair in stock!
Thanks for the e-mail Beth!
So like I said, it hit me after receiving Beth’s e-mail…I hadn’t spoken about the MUST HAVE Wit and Wisdom jeans in a long while because the specific jeans looked like they had sold out and weren’t going to be re-stocked. Well, I randomly checked after Beth’s e-mail, and there’s a new version that you can find HERE (and this new version also has fantastic reviews)!
Here’s a picture with the original Wit and Wisdom jeans on the left, and the new version on the right. As you can see, they are VERY Similar.
*I wear a 4 in both.
The new ones are a tiny bit slimmer at the waist (and I think throughout the legs as well), and they are a bit shorter (which is better for almost 5’4″ me!). But those are really the only differences. Again, the original I named a MUST HAVE on the left, the current version on the right.
You can see they are almost identical.
So, now that I’ve had on both jeans and can vouch for both of them, I’m actually going to re-post information from the post about the original jeans because I feel like all of the information is still valid. And whenever there is a link, it will be for the current jeans!
And then at the end of the post you are going to see me in the current jeans in an outfit!
They are FLATTERING AS ALL GET OUT, they are stretchy, they are comfy, SUPER CRAZY SOFT,they hold their shape, and I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this…
but they’re flattering.
AS ALL GET OUT.
Did I say that already?
And they tuck into tall boots BEAUTIFULLY.
And my goodness are they flattering.
I also want to mention that these are NOT junior’s sizing. They are from the women’s department, so I know lots of you are going to be happy about that!
They remind me of a jegging.
Now let me be clear, they are NOT a jegging….but they do remind me of jeggings (because of their comfort and softness).
How do I know they aren’t jeggings?
Well, they have real fully functioning pockets in both front and back, as well
as fully functioning belt loops.
They are definitely jeans.
But they do have jegging like qualities.
They are jegging-ish, if you will.
They have all of the best qualities of a jegging, BUT THEY ARE STILL A JEAN.
Just like the good Lord intended.
Here I am last year in my Wit and Wisdom jeans.
Click HERE for current version!
The gingham shirt and the sweater are both several years old (sorry!).
The pics below are meant to show you that these are I guess what you would call a mid-rise jean. And again, they are women’s (not junior’s) sizing. I know they will fit a little bit differently on everybody, but they fit just below my belly button (which is why I’m calling them a mid-rise).
When I first talked about these jeans I said they were “higher wasted”…and they are….but they are not high-waisted, if that makes any kind of sense at all.
Higher Waisted? YES.
High Waisted? NO.
So, here it is…the official MUST HAVE alert from earlier this year.
Click HERE for the jeans from Wit and Wisdom that are currently available.
For size reference, I wear a size 4 in both the old and new versions, so I feel like they are true to size.
When talking about last year’s jeans, many reviewers said to order down a size (and I know my readers did to) , but I’m glad I got my normal size last year.
And this year, I definitely think they run TRUE TO SIZE. Like I said before, the waist seems to be cut a bit slimmer, so I don’t think sizing down would be a good choice.
Here are just some of the e-mails I’ve received from y’all about the original jeans.
Bought the Wit and Wisdom jeans – totally obsessed! So thankful I found you and love your recommendations! I may wear these jeans every single day. My husband keeps commenting on how good they look! Thank you!
…. I also bought the Wit and Wisdom jeans this week and LOVE them. I’ve worn them every day since getting them and they’re soooo comfortable.These are the first jeans in a long time that aren’t falling down by the end of the day. And they’re the perfect high rise and length – NYDJ were always just a bit off and too short, and these are perfect.
I have the jeans and absolutely love them. Love the rise and they are so comfortable. They come in black too so I think I’ll be getting those soon.
Me likey! Flattering and so soft! Definitely a must if you are looking for higher wasted jeans!
Those are my favorite jeans in the entire world!! The sales lady at Nordy’s got me hooked on them a couple months ago and now I live in them!
I could see these jeans as a must have. Very flattering. It fits like a legging but very comfortable because of the stretch. I will definitely be wearing them a lot.
I bought these jeans when you first mentioned them a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve already bought another pair. These are definitely my most favorite jeans that I have ever owned. And next to my blardigan, they are the favorite thing you’ve ever recommended to me that I’ve purchased. I bought my normal size just like you did, and they are perfect.
Thank you Sheaffer for helping this mom of 3 feel good about herself again!
Here are the new jeans in an outfit!
And GREAT news! They have them in plus size as well!

Now before you go today, I have 2 Santa Alerts: 1 for the women in your life (or you), and 1 for the men in you life. Both are really nice gifts.
First, let’s talk about the women.
I love them.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
(Oh, except I’m wearing a bra. You’re welcome.)
Click HERE for the gown.
Click HERE for the long sleeved set.
There’s also a short set (not pictured) that you can find HERE.
These would make a VERY NICE gift for a mom, sister, mother-in-law…anybody who likes to lounge around and look cute at the same time!
And now a Santa Alert for the men in your life!
These gifts are for a man’s man….YETI COOLERS!
I gave the soft side cooler to Chris for his birthday this year, and we gave him the 30 oz tumbler for Father’s Day and he absolutely freaked out about both!
NOTHING out there keeps hot things hot and cold things cold better than Yeti products!
Chris can have a drink with ice in it, and the next day…over 24 hours later…there is still ice in the cup! The softside cooler has a leak proof zipper seal and it keeps items cold for days! DAYS!
leak proof zipper seal
This soft side is much easier to tote around than the original Yeti hard coolers, and so the cooler itself is very lightweight.
The only con he has to report is that putting the ice in is difficult with 1 person (1 person needs to hold it open while the other puts the ice in).
