Target Denim 14 Day Challenge

Compensation was provided by Target Via Mode Media. As always all opinions are my own.
I am a denim girl; I simply love denim jeans. For as long as I can remember I have always felt my best when I am wearing jeans. So when target challenged me to live in their new and improved denim for 14 days straight I did not hesitate to say "Challenge accepted".  When it came down to getting ready for this challenge, I felt more than ready; this was my thing. Little did I know that my Style Accomplices over at Target were going to throw in a minor curveball. It wouldn't be challenge if they didn't, right? Of course not. Now here’s a little 411 about me: when it comes to denim jeans I stick to my tried and true styles like the skinny jean and the boyfriend jean. Everything else I pretty much never even look at. Well ladies and gents, My Style Accomplices over at Target were kind enough to send me a mid-rise skinny, a high rise jegging, a boyfriend jean and last but not least the "curve ball" FLARED jeans.

On the first day of the challenge I decided to wear the pair that I was most afraid of wearing: the Mossimo Denim High Rise Flare. I am only 5'3.5"  inches tall and the flare jean and this short girl have never really gotten along, but these were different, a good different. As soon as I pulled them on I instantly looked taller, my legs looked longer than ever and I just felt so chic. I immediately thought of so many different looks I could create with this pair, I knew this was going to be the pair I was going to reach for more than once during this 14-day challenge. It can be dressed up or down and best part of it all- the fabric is super soft and stretchy making it extra comfortable.

The Jegging was another pair that I was not so sure of when I first saw it. I immediately loved the dark wash (my favorite wash on a denim) but, as a mommy of two I just wasn't sure this would be a flattering fit for my post baby body. When I hear Jegging I immediately think leggings, and this mommy has not worn a pair of leggings or anything that form fitting in a very long time. Once again I was shocked to see how amazing these looked and felt. I will tell you right now these were my absolute favorite. I wore these everywhere, to doctors appointment with the kids, a night out with my girls, and a few times to run errands. They are just so versatile and they go with everything and did I mention comfortable? Yes, the jegging is my new best friend. So watch out guys because you will be seeing these a lot in future outfit posts.

My tried and true (the skinny jean and the boyfriend jean) were exactly what I expected.  They are comfortable, versatile, and the perfect fits for my body type. I probably could have gone a size smaller on the boyfriend jeans, but that’s what I love about boyfriend jeans, they don't have to be perfect. They are meant to look easy and relaxed and this pair did not disappoint. Overall I am so thankful to the style accomplices over at Target for forcing me to get out of my comfort zone and trying something different. I feel like I'm adding an entire new wardrobe to my closet by adding my new favorite fits the Flared and the Jegging.
