What to do on a cold, cloudy day in Berlin? Go shopping of course!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a fan of shopping. And because I can work from home in my pajamas I can go an embarrassingly long time without updating my wardrobe. It's easy for me to completely miss a trend. By the time I catch up and think, maybe I should get… it's already gone out of style. I'm more of a stick-with-the-classics kind of gal.

I'm also old enough to see styles coming around for the second time. Like leggings. Or the modern version since the advent of stretch denim, jeggings.

I was afraid that skinning jeans would make my butt look disproportionately bigger. Not really the look I'm going for, so I put off the skinning jean thing and stuck with boot cut.

However, I'm noticing I'm often the only one in a group, especially here in Germany, wearing boot cut, and I hate to admit it, but I started to feel self-conscious. Damn social peer pressure!


Anyway, there was a mall right across the street from the hotel my husband and I were staying at and I decided to take the plunge.

How about you? Do you own a pair of skinny jeans?
