Jean Straps Giveaway!

Hey Ladies!

I'm a Florida girl who has been enjoying warmer weather, albeit clouds seem to have taken over the skies today, it has been beautiful lately. I've enjoyed sitting in the backyard soaking up some Florida Vitamin D a few times, and I am getting ready for spring. Mentally. Definitely NOT physically! This body needs a makeover. Anyway...

I do realize that many of you are still enjoying winter. AND boots! I love a good pair of boots. They bring an instant sense of style and attitude that no other pair of shoes can offer. I wait every year for the weather to be cold enough to enjoy my boots.

However,  I run into a road block sometimes with the whole "skinny jean" thing. Every boot wearing girl needs a few pairs of these suckers just for boots. I cannot pull this fashion rewind off with flats like many do, but they are necessary for boots. The problem is, my body type just doesn't work with skinny jeans. I'm short! I have a J-Lo booty. I'm 5' and rather cute (if I do say so myself). I don't hate my body. It has it's disadvantages, and it's certainly needs some working out, but whatever. I don't hate it. I do hate shopping for it though! It can be tough. Especially when it comes to jeans!

So after some Googling this past winter I found several tips and tricks on pulling off the jeans tucked into boots look. I am not lying when I tell you that I actually Googled "I can't wear skinny jeans and want to wear jeans tucked in boots". When I found this site: http://www.jeanstraps.com/.

After looking around their site, I thought this is perfect! So inventive! Long story short-They offered to let me review the product and give one of you a pair of your own. Jean Straps are removable stir-ups for your jeans. They hold jeans down when putting on boots, minimize bunching, and attach to ANY jeans. Genius, right?

Check out how easy they are to clip on to your jeans.


I have to tell you that these straps are not made for someone that is below average height like myself. Once I clipped them on (which was so easy!) I couldn't wait to pull up my jeans and see how they worked. The problem was, I'm too short. Really! My jeans are so long on me that the straps don't actually catch under my feet like they would on most people, so I don't get the benefit of keeping my jeans from bunching.

Bummer, right? Nope! Not for you!

I contacted Jean straps and let them know I loved their product, but unfortunately would not be able to do an honest review because I felt like I couldn't really test them out. I could see how great they would be for someone of average height, but they just didn't work for me.

They were thankful for my honest feedback, and still wanted to let me give a pair to one of my readers. So, as someone who is too short to enjoy this fabulous product, I think you should be able to!
I think they would have been awesome! So as I continue to search for creative ways to enjoy jeans and boots, you no longer have to!

Win a pair: One of you will have a fabulous, no fuss solution for the jeans and boots look! If your email is not visible in your profile, please leave it with your comment. US only, please. Giveaway will end at 9pm on 2/12.
