I can’t tell you how excited I am that fall is finally in sight. I don’t think I could have prepared myself for how hot this first summer in Dallas would be but let’s just say it surpassed my expectations. (Though I’d still take a Texas summer over zero degree winters on the east coast!)

As I’m sure you’ve noticed if you’ve read Design Darling for a while, I’m definitely most comfortable in skinny jeans. If the occasion doesn’t call for a dress or skirt, chances are I’m wearing jeans. I’ve amassed quite the collection of skinny jeans over the years, from my shoestring budget college days (when I swore by these) to the occasional splurge now (these are my current favorite pair) in my mid-twenties. I really don’t think it’s possible to own too many pairs of flattering denim so I’ve gone back to some of my favorite outfit posts to share my very favorite pairs!

I threw in that flared pair at the end just in case you’re not a big skinny jeans fan. 😉 I hope that helps with your fall shopping!

P.S. Looking back through your own blog archives? Terrifying. Posting pictures of yourself on the internet really doesn’t get easier with age…!

  1. What brand are the brown leather booties you have on in the white denim and photo below it-so cute! Been looking for something exactly like these-Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    I love your blog and these skinny jeans are great! Can you also share where I can find the “Silver” flats from (The one in the 2nd photo of this post).

    And also where can I find the suede boots from (The one in the 4th photo of this post)

    Thank you very much in advance.

  3. Wow the flare looks really pretty on you! You’re making me want to pick up a pair of flares for fall. 🙂

    I love that we’re gearing up for fall pretty quick here. I saw the fall candle display at Bath and Body Works and got SO excited.

    Always, Anita

  4. All of these pictures are so cute! I am right there with you about being most comfortable in jeans, they are with out a doubt my go-tos. My favorites are J Brand and James Jeans but I also have been so impressed with the rockstar jeans from Old Navy. For this fall, I really want to find the perfect pair of flared jeans..I’ll have to check out Henry & Belle.

  5. You are super cute in ALL of these photos, I can’t tell the difference between new and old pics. I don’t wear skinny jeans that often in spring/summer because I always feel like it’s an outfit repeat. But seeing this compilation proves you can have totally different looks with different types of skinny jeans. Thanks for sharing!
