I was lucky enough to receive a pair of Extreme dark denim leggings courtesy YMI!  Stephanie from YMI Jeans was very kind with sending me a free pair to check out as well as being so helpful with information about YMI Jeans.  I was so excited to receive my package in the mail and even more excited to share my review with all of you! 

First let me share a bit of information with you about YMI Jeans:  

"Founded in 2000, YMI was born as a natural evolution for its president, David Vered, and vice president, Michael Godigian, and has established itself as a leading junior/young contemporary denim house. Today, YMI is becoming a true lifestyle brand producing the best in junior denim, fashion bottoms and outerwear; along with licensed products such as fashion tops, dresses and active wear with many other categories to come. YMI is passionate about every product produced and has maintained a leader in the marketplace because of the commitment to deliver exceptional quality denim, innovative washes and the perfect fit at a phenomenal price. Implicit in the corporate philosophy is the belief to maintain a “Yes I Can” attitude has evolved into an important part of the corporate culture."

I chose to try out YMI's Extreme Dark Denim Legging.  I've discovered that denim leggings are like the perfect "skinny jeans" for my body type.  I've never been able to find a good pair of skinny jeans that fit well around the waist line and near the ankles.  Denim leggings work out perfectly because they have the skinny look to them but with a bit of a stretch.  

This YMI pair did not disappoint.  Take a look at how I wore them:

I paired these denim leggings with a longer striped tunic from H&M.  Since the leggings themselves are very formfitting I wanted to even out the outfit a bit with a longer top that wasn't so tight itself.  The Blue striped top I thought would look great paired with my Anchor necklace from Forever 21 for a bit of a nautical feel.  

The Extreme Denim Leggings work well with heels but would also look great with a cute pair of flats as well.  I'm wearing my Simply Vera by Vera Wang black heels with this outfit. 

This pair has a bleach streak wash in Dark Rinse and features faux front pockets for an ultra smooth look.  You can also get the Extreme denim leggings in a Ocean Blue Rinse

It was my first time wearing something from YMI Jeans and I was very pleased with the results.  

I know you girls would not be disppointed if you would give YMI Jeans a try.  For more information on YMI Jeans be sure to check out YMI's Facebook Page as well as their amazing blog!!  I also have some pretty exciting news to share with you!!  YMI has this awesome sweepstakes going on right now and you have the opprotunity to enter!!
