Gingham + Distressed Cropped Skinnies

May 8, 2015
The struggle.

It’s real my friends. The struggle is very real. Being 4’11” (bet you didn’t know I was that short, did you?) makes it very hard to find jeans that fit well. Sure, alterations are always an option, but in my experience, the hem or length is just never right. It never falls or hits the ankle naturally. Maybe I’ve been going to bad tailors all these years, but either way – it’s a hassle. So cropped jeans are my best friend because they actually hit where they’re supposed to on a non- vertically challenged person.
My jean crush? Something Navy – those legs are ridiculous and her jeans always seem to hit at just the right spot. Well, lusting after lengthy stems is not something I have to put myself through anymore especially with the wide selection of distressed cropped skinnies now available in stores. 
Target has come out with a few cropped styles that rival their pricier competitors. So I generally stock up whenever I’m able to find my size. This particular pair is hands down the most perfect pair of distressed cropped skinny jeans I’ve ever owned. Who knew I’d find the impossible at Target? The short girl gods obviously answered my prayers – that’s a thing you know. 
Topshop is another winner in my book for their skinny jeans offered in shorter inseams. Hallelujah! Why more companies don’t offer shorter inseams is beyond me. So thanks Target and Topshop, for solving all short girl problems everywhere. Now if I could just reach the top cabinet…
