Current Love: Gap 1969 Legging Skimmer Jeans

Not all jeans are created equal.  Just like every other girl out there I've tried on a ton of different brands, kinds and price points of jeans.  Although my absolute favorite brand of jeans would have to be AG, I REALLY love Gap jeans too.  Good ole' Gap has been my solid go-to for jeans for many years now.  I love their Always Skinny jeans and when they came out with the Legging Skimmer jeans a few years back I jumped on the bandwagon in a big way.  That being said, not all Legging Skimmer jeans at Gap are created equal either.  Some of the printed skimmers run quite differently in size compared to the solid colored skimmers.  Weird, right?!  I've tried on a pair of printed skimmers that I needed a size 24 (size 00) in and I've tried on some that I needed a 26 (size 2) in.  My usual size at Gap remains a 25 though (size 0) in every solid color jean I have tried.  Just thought I'd warn you of the sizing differences ahead of time!

While I was in Denver this month we stopped in at Gap to check out their latest offerings.  I came upon the newest batch of colors of the Legging Skimmers and totally fell for the new Fire Coral motif:

I tried them on in the size 25 petite length and LOVED them!  The stores don't normally carry petite length so the ones I tried must have been an online return.  I really liked the shorter length on my short legs though!  I already always get the petite length in my Always Skinny jeans but in the future if I purchase anymore Legging Skimmers, I'll be getting the petite length on those now as well. 

Needless to say these cute skimmers came home with me and I have lots of ideas on how to style them:

  1. I've been following your blog for a while, but this is the first time I've commented.

    I love every single outfit above! I've tried on more colored pants/jeans than I care to admit but haven't been able to find any that will work for me and all these cute combos make me sad that I can't participate. Can't wait to see them on you thougb!

  5. I am a HUGE gap jean fan too, Jenni. Off to buy some more just because of this..xo

  6. I pretty much live in Gap jeans on the weekends...I love the necklace you paired with them!

  7. You look waaaay better in them than the model. I like how you Anthrofied them in each look ;)

  8. They look so good on you! I ordered a ton of petite pants recently and loved the super skinny and the broke-in khaki skimmers. I usually have to hem the petites because I am only 5 feet tall.

  9. Out of all the blogs I read, yours is my favorite. I just love how you style your outfits, so creative, so colorful! (I also have major love for Gap skimmer legging jeans. I check gap.com regularly looking for more colors/prints.) Have a great day, looking fwd to your next post. :-)

  10. Love the blue shirt you have on in this post. Where's it from? I hope it was a recent purchase because I definitely want to get one. :)

    1. The top I'm wearing is this: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/clothes-blouses/27255371.jsp
      The one I'm wearing is the "Navy" motif (even though it looks purple in real life) and it's fully stocked in all sizes except the XL right now. Hope that helps! =)
